Having Chemotherapy for the last 12 months I have been searching for a beauty therapist qualified to deliver safe treatments. The products used at Mariposa Therapy Suite are specially made for cancer patients. Tara is very approachable and very welcoming. The treatment room smelt lovely and I felt very relaxed. Tara is very knowledgeable about cancer treatments.
Tara has treated me since 2014, following my diagnosis of breast, node and liver cancer, then a brain tumour in 2017. I have had back massages, head massages, facials and hand treatments and manicure. All of the treatments have been amazing and I have always left feeling much better than when I arrived. Tara is very friendly, really caring and very professional in all her work I have always felt relaxed, at ease and safe during my treatments. Tara is very informative and has helped me with dry skin, brittle nails, hair and with my aches and pains due to my cancer treatment. The products she uses have always been appropriate and left me feeling rejuvenated and that my problems have been addressed. The products are non greasy but very moisturising and quickly absorbed. The salon has a lovely calming, peaceful and friendly atmosphere which makes me feel relaxed just by entering it. I would highly recommend Tara and her treatments to everyone but especially to people suffering the side effects of cancer and cancer treatments.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2015 and went on to have surgery followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. I was given two different types of chemotherapy drugs, the first course made me feel quite nauseous and week but the second course made all my joints ache so badly that at times even walking was difficult. It was then that I started seeing Tara for aromatherapy massages. The sessions with Tara really helped to alleviate some of the pain and discomfort I was experiencing from the after effects of chemotherapy and I really looked forward to my fortnightly sessions with Tara. As well as the obvious benefits from the massage itself I found Tara so easy to talk to and so understanding, she really is a good listener and an accomplished masseur. I would highly recommend the service Tara offers to anyone who has been through a similar illness to mine.
I would like to thank Tara for my aromatherapy massage she made me so welcome and relaxed. I can’t wait to come to your new practice again, One word very good treatment, I would highly recommend to my family and friends.
I will be really honest whilst I am fully aware of the value and benefit these therapies I had never felt the need to use them, until my world as I knew it was turned upside down when I was diagnosed with breast cancer!
It was during one of my chemo sessions that I first met you and you persuaded me to try a hand massage and I never looked back I suddenly had something to look forward to at the hospital!
My fortnightly visits to you gave me a calm and inner peace and our conversations made me feel “normal” again.
I really looked forward to my hand and back massages and for days after I was ache and pain free .
I hope you don’t mind me saying but you weren’t just a therapist to me I valued your friendship and that hugely contributed to my feeling of wellbeing and recovery.
I wish you all the best in your new venture.
