It’s always interesting asking local business operators how they ended up…
They have re-branded to Mabin House Skin & Body Sanctuary (formerly Elliott Cottage Skin & Beauty Therapy) and have moved to 98 Nile Street in sunny Nelson. Escape the stresses of your daily life and indulge in the beautiful surroundings at their gorgeous Mabin House, we’re sure you’ll just love it.
Owner, Tina Van’t slot, a qualified Beauty Therapist and Nail Technician, has been in the Beauty Therapy industry since 2006 and worked under some of the top therapists in Nelson. Tina started her own beauty salon so she could establish a business based on her own work ethic and principles, and to provide a quality of service that is affordable.
As Tina says “This is my pride & passion! I love being able to make every client walk out feeling better about themselves.” Now, joined by her daughter Jess, they focus on Skin and Beauty therapy – beauty from the inside out.
Jess is a Beauty and Body Therapist. She gained her Diploma in Nelson. This industry has always been in the background of her life; Jess was a teenager when her Mother decided to go back to school and study Beauty. Since then, she’s been used as a guinea pig in every sense of the word. Now, she gets to return the favour!
Jess says “After working in New Zealand for a while I decided a bit of travel was in order, so I set sail aboard the mighty Diamond Princess then the lovely Seabourn Sojourn which took me around the entirety of Asia + a little bit extra. It was hard work and I met some amazing people along the way, who taught me their little tricks which I can now pass on to you.” Visit their website for more details about their latest treatments and specials.
