Hi I’m Julia, owner of Tonic Day Spa, which has now been established for 20 years. Wow where did that time go?

At the young age of 24 I decided to start me self-employed journey, originally at The Health Café in Cannock (I wonder how many of you remember it) before moving on to Cannock Cricket and Hockey club (where I started working with Jon Edwards and he’s stuck around since) and finally opening my own salon in Heath Hayes on 2000.

Before that I had had an interesting career, studying at Birmingham College, which was and still is, one of the best beauty therapy courses around, I had already decided I wanted to leave England and travel the world with my job.

My first foray into the world of beauty was working on cruise ships, at the wee age of 18 I left home to work for Steiner’s in London before travelling to Florida to join my first ship. I was so lucky-the days were long, the standards high but the life was wild. By the time I was 24 I had worked on 3 ships, lived in St Marteen in the Caribbean and Kansas in America. Travelling the world and treating many celebrities and VIP’s had given me a wealth of experience, which helped me land an amazing position at The Dorchester Hotel in London, where I worked on reception and only offered services to VIP’s. I met and massaged many millionaires and celebrity’ may favourites of which were Nelson Mandela and Bruce Willis whom I treated on numerous occasions.

The start to my career set my standards and when I returned to the Midlands I struggled with the quality of treatments and customer service on offer so decided to go it alone establishing a great reputation for quality and customer care which is still just important today.

My passion is Massage and Reiki. I am a unique therapist as I’m naturally strong and deep, so if you like a soft massage I’m not your girl… I have a large male client base on my deep tissue massage and experience. If you’d like to see my gentle nurturing side then book in a Reiki, Hot stone, Tranquillity or Urban Ritual Massage, however I am always in demand so early booking is essential and please note some of my treatment charges are a little more-but I’m worth it!

I hope you enjoy all your treatments at Tonic Day Spa, The Massage/Skin and Beauty Hub and look forward to seeing you all soon.
