Training, qualifications & experience

My name is Ricardina Guimaraes I am a Massage and Beauty Therapist. I am originally from Portugal. From a young age I knew I wanted a career in beauty so immediately after finishing my A Levels I trained as a beauty therapist and soon gained a CIDESCO diploma. My first position was with Estée Lauder during which time I progressed her training further by qualifying in lymphatic drainage massage, deep tissue massage and shiatsu. I also completed an Honours degree in nutrition and I am a qualified make-up artist. Over the years I have worked with many beauty and spa brands including ESPA, La Prairie, Phytomer, Crème de La Mer and Sisley.

In 2003, after almost 14 years with Estée Lauder, I accepted the prestigious position of Spa Manager for La Prarie in Cascais on the coast near Lisbon. I moved to England at the end of 2010 where I have been working as a senior beauty and massage therapist for Urban Retreat at Harrods before joining the team at Samsara. I am a member of the FHT  - Federation of Holistic Therapies – Membership number : 174152.

For me, being a beauty and massage therapist is hugely rewarding, and one of her greatest pleasures is meeting new people and seeing them leave her treatment room feeling happy, relaxed and refreshed.
