About me

My name is Rachel Smith and I have been working as a mobile beauty and holistic therapist for over 20 years. I cover many areas in Hertfordshire including St Albans, Hatfield, Harpenden, Hemel Hempstead, Redbourne, Rickmansworth and Park Street.

I left my job as a full time Personal Assistant in London 22 years ago to concentrate on beauty and holistic therapy. After completing my training at Barnfield College and the Herts and Essex Academy 18 years ago I started up my company 'Beauty and Beyond' which provides a mobile massage and beauty service to your home.

I pride myself on carrying out beauty treatments to the highest of standards and am committed to meeting all of my customers' needs. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals.

I am a dedicated mobile beauty therapist and love my work. Based in St Albans I offer a variety of holistic and beauty treatments in the comfort of your own home.

Rest assured I am doing everything to keep you safe. I am carrying out lateral flow tests regularly, I sanitise my couch before and after every treatment. I can not bring towels, pillows to you, at present, so could you please provide your own. I have also been vacinated.

All male clients must be booked by a female.

I have over twenty years experience specialising in Full Body Swedish Massage (I have an advanced qualification in massage), Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage, Aromatherapy Massage, Hot Stones Massage, Indian Head Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Reflexology, Dermalogica Facials, Microdermabrasion, LED light therapy, Waxing and Eyelash/Brow Tinting.

I have a great deal of experience working with elderly and disabled clients and have worked in many retirement and special needs homes. I am currently working in Ashley Road Home, Hemel Hempstead and The Minims Hatfield on a weekly basis. I also really enjoy corporate massage and my current clients include the Computaenter in Hatfield, Bupa in St Albans, PWC in St Albans and Kestronics in St Albans where I provide back, neck and shoulder massage to the employees.

I am a mum of three children so understand how difficult it is to get out to a salon which is the reason for becoming a mobile therapist.

I am a fully qualified member of The Federation of Holistic Therapists and The Guild of Beauty. Each session is tailored to clients' needs and quality assured to ensure real benefits are attained. I also offer Pamper Parties and Corporate Events.

I have a large range of qualifications including diplomas and take the time and effort to ensure that I am up to date with all the latest practices. I also have an enhanced DBS certificate.
