Topic: Foot Reading with Karen

I worked in administration, within Goverment funded training schemes, for over 20 years. Then due to being made redundant, for the second time in two years wasn't sure which area to go into. I had always been interested in Reflexology and Aromatherapy and had brought a few books but nothing extensive. In 2011, I went back to college to study the Diploma in Complementary Therapies Level 3 and set up Feel Good Therapies in 2012 and have not looked back. Have completed various CPD courses over the years and I am a Reiki Master. I also work as a masseuse in an Osteopathy Clinic. Hobbies are making jewellery, knitting and reading text books.

Topic: The skin we live in with Danielle Dean Barlas

I’m Danielle Dean-Barlas, Owner of Eden’s Beauty Sanctuary and the ethos of ‘the skin we live in.’ My aim as a beauty therapist is to raise awareness of good skin and promote products that aid in the healthy cell turnover that comes with a flawless complexion. I’ve always been into aesthetics, ever since I worked in prestigious stores such as Harvey Nichols often frequenting the makeup & skincare counters as well as holistic beauty but thought the two never actually crossed over, my aim is to merge them by way of results driven products that don’t use nasty and unnecessary chemicals but champion natural and nature led ingredients that incorporate scientific testing meaning they actually work!

Date: 29 October 2019
Time: 7pm - 9pm
Venue: Wigan & Leigh College, Leigh Sports Village, Sale Way, Leigh, WN7 4JY
