Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

An Ilkeston mum-of-two is to open the town's first well-being lounge

Gemma Worthington, 36, opened the Barefeet Well-being Lounge on Manners road on Monday 5th March with an official opening set to take place on Friday March 9.

This will be the second business venture for Gemma who already runs the cafe Barefeet in the Park at Victoria Park during the summer months.

Gemma hopes that the lounge will help to regenerate the bottom end of the town.

She said:

"I came up with the idea after having a colour therapy session, where they read things about your past, present and future. The lady told me there was something missing from my life and it inspired me to come up with this idea. I have always been very interested in well-being and saw a gap in the market in this area."

The well-being lounge will offer a number of services including reiki, reflexology, colour therapy, hypnotherapy, teeth whitening, anti-wrinkle treatments, Indian head massage, aromatherapy massage and inch loss wraps.

Gemma has completely transformed the lounge - a former accident claims shop -  in just five weeks and has done much of the work herself. She added:

"I am trying to create a cosy, welcoming, warm environment for people."

The official opening takes place on March 9 at 10.30am and will be attended by the Mayor or Erewash, Councillor Mary Hopkinson. Taster sessions will be held that weekend.
