An Interview with Joanna Linton Complementary Therapies

Joanna Linton Therapies

Today I had a chat with Joanna Linton, our popular in-house complementary therapist. For those who of you who haven’t already experienced one of Joanna’s customised treatments you are seriously missing out! but don’t worry; the next time you visit Skene House HotelSuites, just pick up the phone to our reception team who will call Joanna to arrange an appointment on your behalf.   

Joanna really is an expert in her field. She trained at one of the best colleges in Scotland for complementary therapies, Moray College, before moving on to Thailand to learn authentic Thai massage techniques. From my short conversation with Joanna, I could see that she is really passionate about helping people to feel better through complementary therapies.

Joanna is currently complimenting her already vast knowledge on health and well-being with a distance learning course on nutrition. Often our aches and pains can be caused by more than just bad posture, sometimes it is a result of exercise routines or even poor nutrition. So why not get even more value from your next treatment and pick Joanna’s brains about nutrition!

When I asked Joanna what the future holds for her services, she says that for the moment she is keen to focus on offering the best complementary treatment services to her loyal clients and Skene House guests, she hopes that one day she will have her own clinic in the city alongside other complementary healthcare practitioners. For the time being, Joanna is actively involved in community events such as the Bling Fling, a charity walk held every year in the Winter Gardens where she is on-hand to give out neck and shoulder massages to weary walkers.   

massageIn addition to her complementary treatments, Joanna also offers prescriptive facials where her products are made to measure to exactly match your skins needs. You can be rest-assured that her products do not contain any nasty preservatives and any product left over from your treatment is yours to keep, this ensures the benefits of your facial last even longer. If you’re getting glamed up for a night on the town, Joanna also offers make-up, manicures and pedicures from the convenience of your HotelSuite – what could be more luxurious than having your own in-house therapist for that special night out?!
