Feel Good Studio has hired Tahirah Simmons, a new trainee aesthetician and fitness supervisor, to join its team as it expands services.

The toning and rejuvenating centre opened its doors two years ago on Front Street, opposite the ferry terminal.

It has built on its Powertone Pilates system, a power-assisted workout to improve posture and alignment, increase mobility and lengthen the spine, and also offers a range of other services.

These include facials, waxing, slimming treatments, massages, permanent make-up and two total gyms for strength training.

“We discovered that we needed to add strength training,” Caroline Bartlett, a beauty therapist, said. “The total gyms and the powertone Pilates have proved very effective to balance and actually take away pain while improving posture.”

Ms Simmons started working with Feel Good Studio the beginning of this year. She brings with her knowledge and experience within the beauty and hospitality industry. “Tahirah has been working in the industry for six years and she is a happy and beautiful girl that everyone loves. She also takes great care to guide clients during their Pilates sessions,” Ms Bartlett said.

Ms Simmons will be working and training under Ms Bartlett, who has more than 30 years’ experience in the industry.

Ms Bartlett specialises in facials and is certified and experienced with Swiss Colour, a permanent make-up which enhances the eyes and eyebrows. “This is not as deep as a tattoo and it is very safe, it can adapt with time to lift the eyes. Swiss Colour offers a variety of natural colours,” she said.

Ms Bartlett stressed that there are no heavy metals in the colours.

Permanent make-up has become more popular in recent years. The first step of the process includes carefully measuring and drawing the eyebrow shape to suit the individual. “The brows frame the face and can rejuvenate the appearance. We are also becoming very busy with brow shaping and colouring,” Ms Bartlett said.

The studio offers microcurrent slimming treatments using a CACI machine from the UK. This helps to break down cellulite and toxins which are stored in fat cells and increases blood circulation. It can also reduce fluid retention while toning and lifting the legs, buttocks and tummy.

Ms Bartlett said physical results and changes can be noticed after the first session.

In addition to these treatments another service being provided is their popular facials using their crystal “microdermabrasion” machine. This treatment helps smooth the surface of the skin combining lymphatic drainage to boost circulation, while gently resurfacing with crystals. “This helps refine the pores and ease pigmentation problems such as sun spots leaving the skin soft and pure.” she added.
