Prudhoe: Beauty business blossoms for Tracy
Published at 07:40, Wednesday, 30 January 2013
A PRUDHOE beautician and holistic therapist has launched her business on a full-time basis following huge demand from clients.
Tracy Sivell (pictured) who has a background in fashion and photographic make-up, was working as a lecturer while running Body Therapy in the Attic, on Front Street, one day a week, along with every other Saturday.
Gaining back-to-back appointments, however, she decided to take on a second room and grow the business to the point were she is now working four days a week - or more, if clients require it.
Among the services she offers are beauty treatments, therapeutic Swedish massage, trigger point massage and aromatherapy massage, using oil blends she creates herself to combat specific ailments.
Tracy also runs pamper days, does make-up for special occasions and holds make-up classes.
“Building up the business has brought a sense of achievement and I enjoy it because I’ve got some lovely clients I look forward to seeing,” she said.

Prudhoe workers were queuing up at the town's employment exchange to put their names down for jobs at a new £15million wood pulp factory.
Plans for the factory, which would occupy the former ICI site, had been passed by Northumberland County Council, and it was hoped that when it opened it would turn Prudhoe into a boom town.
Many of those registering for jobs had been unemployed since the ICI plant closed down the previous July.
