Charlotte Cole possesses some talented, healing hands, as I found out for myself when she featured in this month’s Beauty Warrior.

The Hot & Cold Stone Facial was so utterly sublime, that I was ready to book in for more treatments as soon as Charlotte had finished.

What sets her apart is the attention to detail in giving you the most relaxing, stress free treatment she possibly can. You soon drift off to a land where nothing matters, where nothing stresses you and all the negativity in your life melts away…

Ladies and gentlemen, let’s hear more from Charlotte Cole and Tranquil Oasis…

 story photo 1Hi, my name is Charlotte Cole and I am the owner of Tranquil Oasis. I’m a hairdresser and beauty therapist, with a degree in Complementary Therapies, including holistic, medical and complementary therapies, e.g. I work with cancer patients and autistic children using various treatments and oils which will benefit them.

Whilst training and qualifying to become a Complementary Therapist, I also had a full-time job. I initially started my business by setting up a treatment room at my mother’s home, where I offered holistic and beauty treatments. Unfortunately, the recession hit just as I had built up the business; with a mortgage to save for, I was unable to give up my full-time job and had to put my business on hold.

Although the holistic treatments were my passion, as is so often the case, life got in the way! Fast forward to eight years later, I realised that if I didn’t go for it now, then I never would!

It was time to put my dream in motion once more, where I transformed a room at home into a tranquil haven so clients can completely switch off. I know some people struggle to relax, which is why it’s important that the overall ambience that surrounds them - lighting, music, aroma from the essential oils - creates a welcoming, soothing environment, where they can switch off and close the world away – even if only for a half hour treatment to escape any worries or stress.

The treatments I offer are:

Aromatherapy Massage: The ultimate indulgence for your body including the use of pure essential oils. The blend will be specifically made for you. Aromatherapy promotes physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

  • Body - Oils are absorbed into the skin, providing physical health benefits.
  • Mind – Massage induces a deep state of relaxation and relieves stress.
  • Spirit – The fragrance of the essential oil has a powerful and immediate effect on the emotions.

Swedish Massage: Relax and unwind with a full body massage, where you will drift into deep relaxation. You will fall in love with this classic’s many nurturing benefits, which include improved circulation, calmed nervous system, restored muscles and will melt stress away.

Hot Stone Therapy: Drift into deep relaxation with this ancient therapy and the healing of touch. Stones are used to soothe away stress, relieve muscular tension, aches and pains. This is a luxurious intense massage that will penetrate deeper into your aching muscles, leaving you completely recharged and rejuvenated.

Reflexology: Send waves of deep relaxation through the body with this ancient healing therapy that is as blissful as it’s beneficial. The reflex points on the feet are massaged to restore natural energy flow and will also improve overall health. This treatment is extremely beneficial as it works on a holistic level and many different conditions can be treated.

Crystal Healing Therapy: Crystals have been used for thousands of years for protection, decoration and their healing properties. Crystal therapy is the use of crystals and gemstones to focus direct and amplify the universal healing energy channelled by the holistic therapist. Our aura has many layers to it and we have at least seven chakras (energy centres) which are located down the centre of the head and body. These subtle energies constantly change, and when we become stressed or worried they can become unbalanced which can lead to a physical, mental or emotional sense of ‘dis-ease’. This healing treatment will rebalance the body and its functions on all levels and you will feel a deep sense of relaxation.

Reiki Healing Therapy: Reiki works on different levels, the physical, mental, emotional and spiritually enhancing everything in life. This ancient Japanese method of healing uses energy to balance the body and mind. The benefits can be experienced by the Reiki therapist and also the client. There are lots of excellent benefits from helping to clear toxins from the body to helping the body heal itself.

Indian Head Massage: Indian head massage is a deeply relaxing, holistic treatment that uses acupressure massage on the head, face, neck and shoulders. It is a deep massage which uses a variety of pressure and techniques that tap into your seven chakras or paths of energy and encourage healing and balance in your whole body.

Stress Relief Massage: This massage specifically targets the back, neck, shoulders and scalp. This massage is a great way to relieve tension and get rid of built up stress which can manifest itself in the body. This treatment will leave you feeling refreshed and stress free.

Marmassage: Marmassage is a traditional Ayurvedic massage which is known for stimulating vital points of the body. Marma not only relieves back pain and stiffness, but also stimulates various bodily organs and systems. Ayurveda is known for health, harmony and well being.

Thermal Auricular Therapy (Hopi Ear Candling): A non-invasive treatment made from natural ingredients to remove and draw out impurities from your ears. An ideal treatment that will help with releasing pressure from the head or ears. A great natural alternative to syringing.

Luxury Spa Back Treatment: A quenching facial for the back. Enjoy a deep cleansing and purifying treatment for that hard to reach area. This treatment will include a deep cleanse, exfoliation, while treating any congestion, and reveal a brighter and smoother skin.

To make you feel like you’re in tranquil heaven you will also enjoy a therapeutic scalp and neck massage.

If I was going for a massage, I would expect to go in and completely shut off from the world. I want to drift off to a place where I don’t have any worries or concerns, where there’s no pressure as day to day life can be hard.

I want my clients to come in and experience Tranquil Oasis as our bodies are so important; and if you look after your body, your body will look after you. Sometimes it’s better to invest in yourself than maybe another handbag – your body will thank you, I guarantee it.

My dream for Tranquil Oasis is to have my own premises with lots of treatment rooms, creating a spa environment, where people can come to shut off from the world, indulge in relaxing treatments which remove the stress and worries from their life.

When I’m in need of some ‘me’ time, the first thing I do is book in for a treatment with Charlotte. There, I am transported to another place, where nothing matters, only how good the treatment feels. Her hands, combined with the oils, stones and crystals melt away your troubles and the stress evaporates from your body.

My only disappointment is when she says the treatment has finished, as I could quite happily lay there all day in this amazing oasis of tranquility, at the oh-so-appropriately named Tranquil Oasis!

To experience the most blissful ‘me time’ possible – contact Charlotte Cole to book your treatment ASAP! You’ll thank me for it, I promise…
