What do you love about Body Beautiful Retreat?
It’s such a beautiful working environment. We’re constantly nurtured and provided with additional training – which helps us as therapists provide the best experience for our beautiful clients.

Fav BBR Treatment:
Nothing compares to our Enzyme therapy facials, combining results with relaxation. Enzyme therapy gives a noticeable change to your skin after the very first treatment and what's even better is we are not just treating the surface we are working much deeper to provide those long term results our clients are after. 

Can’t live without Skin or Beauty Product:
EFA's are my all time favourite product working internally to keep cells healthy and functioning at an optimal level to produce a youthful healthy natural glow. The other product I can't live with out is our direct delivery vitamin C which provides 3 forms of stabilised vitamin C helping to improve collagen, elastin and a beautiful natural healthy glow.

Guilty Pleasure:

What do you love about Body Beautiful Retreat?
There is so much I love. I love how comforting this space is and that it is balanced with the teams knowledge, passion and talent for achieving the best outcomes for our clients.

Fav BBR Treatment:
By far my favourite treatments to receive and perform is the Vivace RF micro needling and the DMK Enzyme therapies. 

Can’t live without Skin or Beauty Product:
I love my DMK skincare routine and the ritual of self care, so narrowing it down to one product is hard for me. But I think Beta gel and direct delivery C serums are absolutely essential. 

Guilty Pleasure:
Food! Everything about it, eating, cooking, sharing it. It's my love language.

What do you love about Body Beautiful Retreat?
Coming to work is my safe space.  The team of girls we have at BBR are my family and each day is filled with either laughs or tears, knowing we have each other's unconditional support and for that I am so grateful. Over the years I have created such a connection with each and every one of my clients. I have the ability to personalise the way that I treat them each visit and they are always grateful for this. I love that we are constantly learning and upskilling as a team, and this shines through to our clients and the results that we are able to achieve for them.  Mindset and team culture has been our focus at BBR over the past year and this has been helpful beyond words in the way that I approach my own personal struggles, as well as being able to support and guide my clients through whatever they might be going through.  I love the energy that we create for our clients each and every day, the attention to detail in the treatment room and the way we leave our clients feeling when they walk out the door is what makes BBR one of a kind. 

Fav BBR Treatment:
I have had the pleasure of working with DMK now for many years,  and the results we are able to achieve from the DMK Enzyme Therapy is unmatched. I love this treatment because it is the perfect combination of science based results and relaxation.  Our clients are always left educated, confident and excited about their next enzyme therapy treatment.  I also cannot go without mentioning our brow treatments.  Whether it is just a basic wax and tint or new tattooed eyebrows altogether, your brows truly shape your face and this can change someones confidence in a heartbeat. 

Can’t live without Skin or Beauty Product:
Without a doubt DMK's EFA's and Relax supplements.  We constantly preach to each and every one of our clients how important internal balance is in order to achieve glowing results on the outside.  Everything starts from within and these two products are the perfect cocktail to feed, balance and support your skin in a way that no topical product can.  I certainly notice when I go without them as I start getting a few little break outs here and there so absolutely no doubt these are two products I cannot live without. 

Guilty Pleasure:
I am on a new health kick this year and I am feeling so much better for it.  To indulge in chocolate or ice cream just makes me feel unwell and yucky for days so my new guilty pleasure would have to be seafood or a really good yummy salad.
