Katie White is a nutritional therapist (mBANT), holistic therapist, and skin coach (BABTAC) based in East London. She founded her company re:lax in 2016 with a mission to help people to achieve happy, healthy skin, while avoiding harsh topical treatments,
pharmaceuticals, or expensive and invasive treatments.
While she was working for a premium skincare company, Katie started to experience her own skin troubles. When she tried to find a solution, she was left feeling disappointed with the available solutions: the expensive and impersonal product and treatment packages offered by salons; the mainstream brands with flashy marketing campaigns, but limited active ingredients in their products; and the worrying cocktail of antibiotics, contraceptive pills and harsh topical solutions handed out by doctors.
This inspired her to retrain as a nutritionist and holistic therapist, in order to offer a service that uses a three-pronged approach of natural high-performance products, nutritional therapy, and lifestyle advice for long-lasting healthy skin.
"Really relaxing facial and my skin is still glowing 5 days later! Katie was lovely and provided lots of helpful advice around nutrition and recommendations for skincare.She also sent a helpful follow up email with all the details. I would definitely recommend!!"
MEET THE TEAM
Polly has been working in the beauty industry for the last 8 years. She started out working as a makeup artist in film and TV working for big production companies such as Warner Bros & The BBC. Eventually her interest in skin and holistic therapies began to out grow her love for filming and she decided to retrain in skincare and facials.
Her own skin problems were deeply rooted in stress & so she has a deep understanding of treating acne prone skin holistically after spending years healing her own & is so passionate about sharing her findings with others struggling with their skin.
Along side facials she also trained as a yoga teacher and knows a lot about the body and is all about bringing the calm and creating an environment for you to totally switch off and disconnect from the busyness of London life.
You can expect to completely unwind as she spends time working on releasing tension and calming the nervous system with lots of massage, lymphatic drainage and gua sha. Expect to feel so relaxed you fall asleep
Anna is a trained facial therapist recently moved to London from the Cotswolds. Having experienced skin problems herself, and after years of trial and (mostly) error following the doctors prescriptions, she booked in with a nutritionist and started to look at skin from a holistic point of view.
After changing her diet, lifestyle, skincare routine and having regular facials Anna saw great improvements in her skin. She was then inspired to train as a facial therapist and help others enjoy the same benefits.
Anna is trained in holistic facials and electrical facials. During a treatment with her she will look at your skin from all angles and combine relaxation, massage, targeted natural products, Gua Sha, high- frequency and LED light therapy to address your concerns. Her approach is to mix nature and science to achieve healthy and happy skin.
