Women’s holistic wellness and beauty expert, Wakefield-based Vicky Rawcliffe, has been named Holistic Therapist of the Year in the prestigious Janey Loves Platinum Awards 2020/21.

Working from her home-based treatment room in Horbury, Vicky offers a suite of highly acclaimed holistic therapies to transform the health, wellness and beauty of her clients. A trained clinical reflexologist, facialist, massage therapist, and reiki master, Vicky launched her business in September 2018 after a 20-year career as a PA. Judges were wowed by her range of treatments, dedication and 5-star customer service.

Vicky said: “Since launching in 2018 I have worked tirelessly to establish the business, gain a good professional reputation and a busy diary. To win this award is the ultimate recognition of my hard work and I can’t wait to celebrate this win with my loyal clientele!”

Launched by Janey Lee Grace to recognise excellence and innovation in Natural, Organic and Eco products and services, the Janey Loves Platinum Awards continue to highlight and bring the best in natural products and services into the mainstream. Awards entries are selected after review by the panel of Judges, and by public votes. This year’s stellar panel included Janey Lee Grace, Jo Wood, Glynis Barber, Carrie Grant & Dr Marilyn Glenville.

Vicky commented: “I have always focused on putting the client's experience at the heart of every touch and thought during their time with me. This has put me in good stead as my client base has grown steadily without any paid advertising - just through word of mouth recommendations, my website and social media.”

“Although I had to close my doors for eight months during the Covid lockdowns; the last eighteen months have been an amazing time for me. I spent each lockdown working on the business, staying in touch with my clients, improving my systems and qualifying in new techniques and therapies. As soon as I re-opened after the first lockdown I was busier than ever as clients were desperate to receive the nurturing and healing treatments that I specialise in.”

“The pandemic has raised everyone’s awareness that our health is our wealth, and it’s no longer considered an indulgence to book regular treatments to care for our physical and emotional wellbeing. This new attitude has inspired me to create a brand new signature transformation programme to support clients on a 1:1 basis over a number of months. It will be a nurturing journey back to physical, emotional and spiritual wellness, which I think is exactly what we all need right now”

Vicky has continually invested in her professional development and, as well as offering reflexology, massage, holistic facials and reiki, is also trained in fertility reflexology, advanced facial reflexology, Zone Face Lift and pregnancy massage. She has also achieved the Behind the Mask Qualification - Awareness of Domestic Violence for Beauty Therapists and the Masced Qualification - Melanoma & Skin Cancer Early Detection for Beauty Therapists, and is a trained Mindfulness Practitioner.

For a small taster of the service Vicky provides, she will be joining us at the next Yorkshire Businesswoman event at Dakota Hotel Leeds on 3rd December. If you would like to join what will be our Christmas lunch, you can reserve a place here
