Nikki & Julian Spicer - Spa Directors

About us

Nikki's career began when she trained in Sports Massage with The London School of Sports Massage in 2003, during her time studying Musical Theatre and Professional Dance at The Urdang Academy. She then went on to train with Body Control Pilates to become a qualified instructor. She also trained with Well Mother in pregnancy massage and also trained in swedish massage. In 2005 she opened The Well Body Centre for complementary therapies and during that time opened Vita Skin Spa within The Well Body Centre treating from just one room with two therapists. Nikki has trained in many other treatments along the way, including our slimming treatments, but continues to mainly offer advanced massage. In 2012 Vita Skin Spa moved upstairs above 26 St Ann Street. The new spa was to have a new relaxation room, double treatment rooms and much more space to pamper you in! After a successful first year, 2013 began with further expansion and we now have a total of seven treatment rooms, including four double treatment rooms, the relaxation room, a private sauna room and two dedicated express treatment rooms. In the summer of 2012 Julian joined the Vita Skin Spa team full-time, managing operations, technical support and to work with Nikki in the general management and future growth of the spa, having been in the background part-time since the beginning. Previously his career was in telecoms, and was a Sales Director of a Vodafone Platinum dealer for 15 years. Since the expansion of Vita, the spa has grown each year, as has our wonderful team.

Nikki & Julian married in 2010 and have two small children, Zachary (7) & Amelia (5).

 

 

Laura Watts - Beauty Therapist and Spa Manager

Laura joined us from another Salisbury based salon, starting in May 2014, she brings a wealth of experience (over 8 years) treating the ladies (and gents) of Salisbury, she was previously based within a local Gym and before that she was treating at the Spa in Sandy Balls Holiday Village in the New Forest. Laura is one of our Skinbreeze specialists and is also Kim Lawless trained in intimate waxing. Laura is an integral part of our team, always has a smile, and will ensure you leave happy and relaxed.

In January 2016, Laura became our Spa manager.

Q & A with Laura:
Why did you get into the beauty industry?
'I used to watch my mum go for her sugaring treatments from a very young age, I was one of those annoying kids who wanted to be an inch away from every treatment just to really make sure I'd seen it properly, and then I'd ask questions about why the therapist did something... and how...
So it's safe to say that I was 100% interested early on. But the main reason that I wanted to get into the beauty world, was helping people. I think there are people out there with confidence issues, health problems, sometimes just wanting company or a chin wag... I like being able to help someone with all of these qualities and hopefully perform a treatment (however big or small) good enough for them to leave, wanting to return again.'
Whats your tip for beautiful skin?
'My tip for beautiful skin... Give it attention and stay hydrated.
Incredibly basic rules to follow - drinking plenty of water will have an immense effect not just on your skin's hydration but also the regeneration of skin cells and healing attributes.
Giving it attention - I tend not to preach about certain brands being better than others to use because quite honestly all of us are so individual; there will always be something different out there to try that may work for one person beautifully and not so well for the other. So my advice is: As long as you are doing the basics of washing your skin and moisturising... let us treat you to the rest, but don't expect things to happen overnight. Skin is slow at showing you whether something is working. Be patient with a new facial/new product... give it a chance to work.'
What is your favourite treatment to perform and why?
'I get asked this so much by my clients and my answer is always the same. I love everything. EVERYTHING.
I love the satisfaction of a well shaped eyebrow, a beautifully painted nail, a buffed and smoothed heal, a pummelled muscle or a evenly sprayed fake bake... as well as all the other treatments on the price list at Vita. I think I was always meant to be in beauty because I enjoy it all.'

 

 

Chelsea Kirkbride - Guest Services Manager

Having worked at Aqua Sana within Centre Parcs Longleat for the last 3 years as a therapist and within Guest services, we welcomed Chelsea to Vita in 2015. Prior to Aqua Sana, Chelsea was onboard 'Celebrity Reflection' in the Carribean as a spa therapist.

Chelseas experience within the industry allows her to make great recommendations and advice over the phone and within the Spa, and she will make sure your visit is everything you expect it to be.

In 2016 Chelsea became Guest services manager.

Q & A with Chelsea:
Why did you get into the Beauty industry?
'I always loved the thought of travelling whilst carrying out beauty treatments and pampering people. After I qualified, I worked at Center Parcs aqua sana for 2 years and decided that as I had gained experience it was time to fulfil my dream, so I did exactly that. I worked on a cruise ship for 7 months sailing around the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, and it was a great experience that I won't forget.'
What is your tip for beautiful skin?
'Try out different brands and find the one both you and your skin love. Make sure you have a strict routine of daily cleansing, toning and moisturising, and exfoliating twice a week. Along with drinking plenty of water and wearing a daily spf.'
What is your favourite treatment to perform and why?
'I've taken a step back from doing treatments for now. This is so that I can learn different areas of the beauty industry, rather than just carrying out the treatments, although I do still keep my hand in beauty by doing treatments here and there. My favourite treatments to perform as a therapist are facials, purely because of the fact that you can see the results yourself as well as the clients feeling them. '

Why did you get into the beauty industry?
'I knew I always wanted to be a beauty therapist from a young age. I love every aspect of the beauty industry. I love meeting new people and helping them feel amazing.'
Whats your tip for beautiful skin?
'A great skincare routine: find a brand that you love and know suits your skin. Make sure you protect your skin with an SPF 30 or 50 and drink plenty of water; this is a must!'
What is your favourite treatment to perform and why?
'I LOVE facials and waxing the most! Waxing is the most satisfying treatment to perform, whilst getting to know your client and have a good chin wag. With facials I love transforming peoples skin and helping them to feel relaxed.'

 

 

 

Mercedes Longmuir - Beauty Therapist

Mercedes has been with us since the beginning of 2014, she trained at Salisbury College and brings great enthusiasm to her role. Mercedes loves facials, body treatments and ensuring clients are completely pampered. Her warming personality will ensure you have a relaxing and tranquil time during your visit to the spa.

Q & A with Mercedes
Why did I get into beauty?
Beauty therapy has forever been an interest of mine. Having family within the trade meant I was always surrounded by the luxuries and excitement beauty has to offer. Bringing both happiness and relaxation to our clients always puts a smile on my face as well as it being so rewarding to us as therapists.
What is your tip for beautiful skin?
Drinking plenty of water is always key! Keeping your skin hydrated will help to brighten and lighting your skins natural complexion. A regular skin care routine is also essential for maintaining general skin health. Something as easy as cleansing, toning and moisturising your skin daily will do wonders to your skins overall appearance and texture.
What is your favourite treatment to perform and why?
I am lucky enough that I actually enjoy doing every treatment we have to offer at Vita. The variety of treatments means that you never have a day that's the same and you can mix and match with treatments that are more holistic like facials and massage as well as results driven treatments such as nails and our hair removal. If I had to choose any treatment that I enjoyed performing the most it would have to be facials. I love skincare and the results good products have on the skin. The pure relaxation and tranquility a facial can give to a client is just amazing. Also, nothing beats a good face and scalp massage after a long and stressful day.

Q & A with Justyna:
Why did you get into the beauty industry?
'I've been interested in the beauty industry since I was 19, so it felt right for it to become my profession. It is my passion and hobby at the same time, and I would not change my job for anything else.'
Whats your tip for beautiful skin?
'Make sure to stick to a daily routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising. The brand which I truly recommend is Dermalogica. I'm using it myself and really notice the difference it makes to my skin; it is more radiant and hydrated.'
What is your favourite treatment to perform and why?

Q & A with Jo:

Why did you get in to beauty?
After qualifying as a level 3 hairdresser I continued to develop my skills within the industry and studied to qualify as a beauty therapist.
What is your tip for beautiful skin?
Water, drink plenty of water. This is such an overlooked commodity with a great health benefit and so easy to introduce to your day to day lifestyle.
This alongside a good cleanse, tone, moisturise routine for day and night. Try to use daytime products with an added spf, especially for hands and face, every day, even in winter.
What is your favourite treatment to perform and why?
Lash and Brow tints are such a great treatment and can deliver an incredible result helping to frame the eyes and intensify the lashes. Great for any time but especially pre-holiday so no need to worry about applying mascara everyday. I do also love the facial treatments here at Vita Skin Spa with the 23 carat gold facial being my favourite. Super indulgent facial with a warming honey foot & leg massage.

Q & A with Lucy:
Why did you get into the massage industry?

'I first showed interest in the industry when I was a child and would look through my Mums 'Mmind, body, spirit' magazine. Each week you would collect crystals and essential oils. I loved it and my interest just kept on growing. I went to college and studied complementary therapies and beauty with an aim to provide a range of treatments and give advice to clients on how to apply holistic and beauty treatments to benefit everyday life.'
Whats your tip for relieving tired, achy muscles?
'The best thing when you're feeling tired or achy is taking a time out and ensuring you use this time to relax, which of course can be easier said than done. Using a combination of applying heat, stretches and appropriate massage and essentials oils, when you have the time. For example, a heatpad on your muscles whilst in bed or stretching before leaving the house or on lunch breaks are great at relieveing tight muscles. Regular meditation and yoga are great for clearing and relaxing the body and mind.'
What is your favourite treatment to perform and why?
'It's difficult to choose a favourite treatment. I love the variety I get from being both a massage and beauty therapist. The best days are when no treatment is the same as the last and I have a bit of everything.The calming treatments of facials and massage, followed by the interaction and creativity of manicures and pedicures and weight loss treatments is great!'
