Hello - my name is Mary Chamberlain; I am a fully insured therapist with 25 years of experience in the beauty and wellbeing industry. I pride myself on using only the finest quality exclusive products for my clients to ensure maximum benefits.
To date my work has included five years of spa management on 5 star luxury cruise ships, lecturing for Steiner academy of London land based and on cruise ships, working in established beauty and alternative health clinics.
In between running my own business, I am involved with voluntary work at St.Margarets Hospice. I offer complimentary therapies to patients and families, which I find extremely rewarding and inspiring. I feel very proud to be part of an amazing organisation.
I have a great passion for teaching, and offer training on a one to one basis for anyone who is interested in Beauty and Complimentary Medicine. These are credited courses, so please contact me if this interests you.
I am a full member of FHT, which is the Federation of Holistic Therapies. Being a member insures that I am up to date with the industry. This covers attending various workshops and events which helps me widen my knowledge in this fast growing industry.
I would like to thank all my existing clients for their continued and loyal support and welcome new time clients.
I have a huge passion for understanding health status and biochemical imbalances of the human body, and have for 3 years studied at the College of Naturopathic medicine to become a nutritional practitioner.
Understanding the impact that food can have on a person’s health is vital, as good nutrition is fundamental to good health. It is therefore important to have optimum health, as this helps to reduce the risk of getting a large number of diseases.
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human body, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease” - Thomas Edison.
Elemis is the range of skincare products that I both retail and use throughout my facials and body treatments. They are a leading British spa and skincare brand that combines natural ingredients with science. The dynamic ingredients can be trusted for its integrity, purity, and efficiency, and is not tested on animals.
Zoya is a chemical free nail polish, and OPI are the nail polishes used within a manicure and pedicure. Shellac is a patent pending UV3 technology that combines the ease of polish with the permanence of gel. Shellac is UV cured so ZERO drying time; it is hypoallergenic and free from formaldehyde, toluene and Dibutyl Phthalate. It is thin and flexible like a polish, and provides a natural nail protection for 14 days with high gloss shine.
Lily Lolo are the cosmetics that I use and retail, it is a very affordable exclusive line of natural and mineral based make up. It contains no harsh chemicals and is not tested on animals.
In order to continue to work in a way that is safe and compliant with COVID-19 regulations, I will be charging an additional £5 extra per treatment to cover the cost of PPE and cleaning. This is a non profit surcharge that unfortunately I have to add in order for my small business to remain viable

In order to ensure your visit is as safe as possible, please find some guidelines that are compliant with COVID-19 regulations within my establishment.
1) There will be a Sanitising Station as you walk into the hall. This will have a hand sanitiser, sanitising spray, antibacterial wipes, gloves and masks. Please note these masks are for you to use. I would kindly appreciate and require that you use the one I am offering and not your own. These masks are 3 ply and have been approved.
2) The bathroom will have anti bacterial wash, hand sanitiser, and disposable towels with a foot pedal bin.
3) Within the Therapy room there is now a plastic chair with a container. This is to put your clothes, handbag, and personal belongings in.
4) The couch will be prepared with a PVC couch cover, and where possible disposable towels. I have sourced these from a great vegan company who’s towels are 100% biodegradable and compostable. Any cotton towels that are used will be washed on a 60 degree wash after usage.
5) Anyone having a pedicure will have their own labelled bag. This bag will stay with me and contain your own nail file, orange stick etc.
7) ANYTHING which may have come in to contact with hands etc will be cleaned with sterilising spray/wipes after each client. i.e. door bell, toilet, sink, couch, chair, personal belonging container, door handles etc.
8) Anyone arriving on a bike, I will make sure that you have access to my garage (This is a different garage to the one attached to the house). The door handle will be cleaned after each use.
9) Payment ideally would be a bank transfer. Cash and Cheque however is still acceptable, but please provide a pen.
10) Refreshments: Please bring your own bottle of water, although not a necessity as I should be able to provide water in disposable paper cups.
11) I will allocate 15 minutes after each of you to clean everything down. As much I love people arriving early, unfortunately I will not be ready for you until your appointment time.
12) Taking temperature: as reading of thermometers can be variable I will not be investing in an infra red thermometer unless stated that I must. I will be asking you though to please take your temperature before you arrive to me, and reschedule your appointment if you have any symptoms.
13) The window and the french doors will be open as much as possible to allow air to flow freely throughout the room. A gazebo is set up in the garden and weather permitting treatments where possible will be in the garden.
** Please note an additional fee of £5 will be added on top of your treatment. This fee will cover you for the use of a medically approved face mask, and all the additional sanitising that now has to take place.
I am located at Sherford cottage, Sherford road, Taunton, Somerset, TA1 3RB
