"Running The Beauty Therapy Centre gives me great pride and I wish to thank all my clients for their consistent support. I have been in this industry for over twenty six years, but it continues to challenge and motivate me. I have introduced several new treatments in recent years: O.P.I Gel soak off lacquer nail treatments . CACI Ultra firming facial, CACI body toning and Fake Bake spray Tanning, Semi-permanent lash extensions, Indian head massage, microdermabrasion and reflexology, all of which have been fantastically well received. This latest evolution of TBTC over two sites in Buckinghamshire has been a professional challenge and yet has felt like a natural progression. I am very proud and privileged to have a fantastic team of therapists, whom I have hand selected for their kind personalities, professionalism and high skill levels. All four therapists work in our Buckingham Stowe Castle Business Park and Milton Keynes Shenley Church End branches."
