COVID-19 Infection Prevention & Control Policy
Our priority is to keep you as safe as possible, and prior to re-opening the salon we have implemented a number of changes which we would like to make you aware of. During the time the salon has been shut, we have completed the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection Prevention and Control course which is accredited by the Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists Ltd, the UK trade body for our industry. We have since made a number of changes in the way that we operate that you will notice when you next visit.
If any of our staff feel ill or have symptoms of C0VlD-19, they
will self-isolate immediately and not come into the salon. This may mean that we have to cancel your appointment at short notice. We appreciate that this may be inconvenient but it is done entirely for your own safety. If your appointment is cancelled you will be able to re-book again or ask for a full refund / voucher.
If you or any of the people you live with feel ill or display any symptoms of C0VlD-19 – please advise us as soon as possible and DO NOT COME TO THE SALON FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. We have amended our booking terms and conditions and you will not be charged for any appointments which you miss due to illness/ other.
If you already have a booking, please reconfirm with us via email if you will be attending

"Beauty On The Outside Begins Within"
This core belief is at the very heart of Bharti’s business, the sentiment that shapes all treatments, her signature products and the training of future practitioners. Arguably one of the first to adapt this concept in the world of western skincare with her holistic treatment approach to beauty therapy, she remains a pioneer in our understanding of the pivotal role inner health and wellbeing has on our outer glow.
From a tender age, immersed in an eastern upbringing rich in Ayurvedic principles (an ancient Indian system of health and wellbeing based on phytomedicinal or plant based healing), Bharti understood the natural connections and flow of energy that exists within the body, something that western beauty treatments overlooked.
Bharti’s journey and education mastered the key pillars of Ayurveda, Acupuncture and Aromatherapy, while embracing western technologically advanced treatments such as Laser Therapy to result in a connected treatment programme that could be tailored to the individual.
The first salon was unveiled in 1988 on Chiltern Street, Marylebone, where the practice still stands. Sought after, respected and celebrated in the skincare industry, Bharti has collected a loyal client base over the years that include royalty, dignitaries and celebrities alike. She has become an authority in the media, regularly contributing to print press and national broadcasts, making her a household name and raising the profile of holistic skincare treatment.
This profile has led to a number of published books offering insight, self-help and guidance to improving inner health and skin wellbeing.
The Ultimate Therapy Range was launched in 1997 after a year’s painstaking research and development to create a signature collection of formulations that would support her unique treatments professionally and in the homes of her clients to offer continued benefit.
Bharti has pioneered now iconic treatments such as the BVM Harmonising Treatment that concentrates on lymphatic drainage and the treatment of the body as a whole. She has invested her time and energy, alongside her daughter Shailu, into the training of countless holistic beauty practitioners through her work and leadership of the Federation of Holistic Therapists.
A force of nature, it is unsurprising that she has been nominated for a number of awards both in the world of beauty therapy, but also in recognition of her entrepreneurial spirit.
There is no stopping Bharti who has no intention of slowing down. Still fully immersed in her passion for the industry and promoting the benefits of holistic health and wellbeing, she works with her daughters to ensure the legacy prevails at a time when our lifestyle demands are ever more in need.
