Laura Thompson, Spa Supervisor

I have recently joined as spa supervisor at the Cedarwood spa. I have been working in the beauty industry for the last 16 years, I have progressed in my career and worked for various high end hotels such as the Belfry and the Lowry. In my short time at the Cedarwood spa I have discovered a lovely team of therapists which I can pass on my passion of delivering fantastic treatments and excellent customer care, listening to the individual client and catering to their very need. Skincare fascinates me and if you get to talk to me I can get carried away. Decléor is amazing and I genuinely think I can find a cure for any skincare need. My favourite treatments to perform are Gel nails, Facials and a good back massage.
