Carmel started her beauty career in NZ she then went onto the UK, she gained knowledge in Paris methods for facials, make-up artistry, aromatherapy, thalassotherapy and reflexology. Carmel also pursued studies in Natural Therapies, Ayurveda, Vedic, Vegetarian and Vegan lifestyle.

Carmel takes great pride in providing her clients with tailor-made treatments based on their individual needs, for your face, body, soul, and spirit, but if there is one general piece of advice she’d like to give when it comes to achieving and maintaining a glowing complexion, it’s this: “Always use skin care that’s free from harmful parabens or that’s aromatherapy based; and never go to bed without removing your make up first.”

Carmel’s knack for making people feel wonderful in their own skin doesn’t stop with topical care: She is also a spiritual healer who has developed a self-care therapy called Atua Healing®, which helps release deep-seated trauma at a cellular level without a person having to relive that trauma. In addition, she uses her innate abilities as an intuitive visionary or Matakite to give clarity and direction to clients on their life path.
