Meet Tina: Senior Beauty Therapist at Mabin House Body & Skin Sanctuary

Meet Tina - Senior Beauty Therapist and Owner

I have been in the Beauty Therapy industry since 2006 and worked under some of the top therapists in Nelson. I started my own business so I could establish a business based on my own work ethic and principles, and to provide a quality of service that is affordable. This is my pride and passion and I love being able to make every client walk out feeling better about themselves.

Having problematic skin as a younger person really piqued my interest in good skin care as I grew older and became more aware of the fabulous opportunities to enhance and protect what I’ve got.

Since then I have researched and looked into many products, always looking for new products and tools and testing them out first before offering them to my clients.

The great thing about the beauty industry is that it continues to change and challenge old remedies with new so I am continually learning and adapting to best meet my clients needs.

Meet Jess - Senior Beauty Therapist at Mabin House

Meet Jess - Senior Beauty Therapist

Hi, I'm Jess and I'm a Beauty and Body Therapist. I gained my Diploma in my hometown of Nelson, New Zealand and have never looked back. This industry has always been in the background of my life;  I was a teenager when my dearest Mother decided to go back to school and study Beauty. Since then, I've been used as a guinea pig in every sense of the word. Now, I get to return the favour.

After working in New Zealand for a while I decided a bit of travel was in order, so I set sail aboard the mighty Diamond Princess then the lovely Seabourn Sojourn which took me around the entirety of Asia + a little bit extra. It was hard work and I met some amazing people along the way, who taught me their little tricks which I can now pass on to you. I then managed a salon in Melbourne and got to work alongside some amazing Dermal Therapists who really solidified my love for cosmetic chemistry and skin science.

This industry is such a joy to work in. It's constantly changing, growing and evolving which is how I like to approach my treatments, as needs change and wants evolve.

Meet Sami, Nelson Beauty Therapist - holistic spa treatments

Meet Sami

Kia Ora, I'm Sami. I have my Diploma in Beauty & Body Therapy and have been in the industry since 2015, taking a short break to have my daughter, who is fast approaching 1 year old.

I quickly discovered my passion lies in holistic spa treatments and after what felt like a never ending pregnancy, I'm even more thrilled that I can offer pregnancy and post natal massage. I have taken extra courses in aromatherapy and naturopathy and I am always looking at where I can next increase knowledge for my clients. I use massage techniques drawing from a range of cultures, most of which focus on energy flow through the body, helping to relieve built up tension and stress, as well as calm a busy mind.

I feel honoured to work with the ladies at Mabin House Body & Skin Sanctuary, a group of women passionate about the people walking through the front door. I truly can't wait to meet you.

Courtney Mabin House

Meet Courtney

Hi, my name is Courtney, I have been an internationally qualified beauty therapist since 2015 and have been working around New Zealand in beauty salons for the last 6 years as a Beauty Therapist.

Before joining Mabin House, I set off on an adventure to London to focus on the medical side of beauty, specialising as a Laser Aesthetician and to also explore my passion for travel. After a year of traveling Europe and expanding my knowledge in all areas of beauty, I returned to New Zealand. I am loving being back in my hometown and excited to have joined the team at the beautiful Mabin House.

Outside of work, I spend the majority of my time with my partner, my nieces, family and friends. I enjoy being social and active.

I am ready to pamper and apply my skills to you all. See you soon!

Ella, Mabin House

Meet Ella

Hi, I'm Ella, I really enjoy working with treatments involving detail - especially nails and brows! I love working in this industry, making people feel good is an amazing feeling! It has led me to so many awesome opportunities such as doing makeup for fashion shows, nails for weddings and balls and doing restorative treatments for rest home residents.

I am really enjoying working with the team at Mabin House, extending my knowledge by attending in-house courses and absorbing all the information this fabulous bunch of beauty therapists throws at me.

Outside of the salon, I play netball during the winter, otherwise you can find me playing with my dogs - Toot, Zeke, Jinx, and Ryder.

Come visit me in the salon, I look forward to treating you soon!
