It’s the Finals for Foot Health

Further good news follows the Island’s Foot Health Clinic. Unbeknown to many, The Foot Health Clinic offers some of the most comprehensive and professional beauty treatments available on the Isle of Man. This has recently been recognised by beauty industry governing body BABTAC (British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology) as two of the clinics lead therapists are now in the finals for 2016 awards.

Gill Goss, Beauty Specialist, is one of just 12 therapists to make the shortlist for Waxing Therapist of the Year and Louise Birch, Therapy Manager, is fighting for top spot in the Beauty Therapist of the Year category. After two rounds of grueling applications the girls now face trade tests in BABTAC head office, Gloucester, where they will compete head to head with the best in the industry.

‘Reaching the finals in these very popular categories is an astounding achievement’ says Lisa Perrie, Clinic Leader. She goes on to say ‘Louise and Gill are role models in the beauty industry which often receives bad press, not least because of the lack of professionalism and investment in continual professional development. To reach this level, our therapists put in a huge amount of work to ensure their standards and knowledge are akin to industry leaders. It has been humbling for all involved to be recognised at such a level, not only by BABTAC but also through the huge number of positive testimonials and support from our island clients’

Further success has followed the clinic as a whole as it too has moved through to the semi-finals of the Medium Salon of the Year awards. Louise Birch, Therapy Manager tells us ‘we were delighted to be put through to the semi-finals and felt even more privileged to be recognised despite our unconventional service offering. This is a lovely way to show the island that we have many strings to our bow’. The clinic will welcome a Mystery Shopper at the end of April who will decide whether they progress through to the finals.

We will be watching the clinic and will hopefully be reporting good news after the grand awards ceremony to be held in London in June.
