As the beauty and holistic industry taps the backlog of customers who need to be pampered, a Gedney Dyke business keeps growing.

Anna Norris says customers came over in droves to relax after the lockdown.

Anna, who set up Anna-Marie Norris Beauty Therapies at Gedney Dyke, moved to the village with her husband earlier this year and brought a wealth of knowledge with her.

She said, “I had worked for myself in Suffolk and when I moved here I wanted to do the same.

“I have a treatment room in the house and what I love about this area is that it is so quiet and calm, which is exactly what you want.

“I’ve found that there are a lot of salons in this area, but most of them focus on hair and nails, so I’m offering something different.

“Since I’ve been doing this for so long, I’ve really developed with the industry. I’ve learned many new skills over time, from aromatherapy to Reiki to hot stone massages. “

Anna offers her clients a wide range of treatments, from facials and holistic massages to nail and eyelash treatments.

She can also guide clients through treatments to find out which ones are perfect for them.

Anna said, “I do almost everything except eyelashes and nail extensions and I am able to guide people with the right treatments for them. My treatment list is more of a guide as treatments can be tailored to your needs.

“Many people are surprised at how relaxing it is to have a facial and often say the same thing after a massage. Indian head massage is ideal for people struggling with migraines or having a tight scalp. It can also be combined with a back massage.

“Massage is really good for wellbeing, it calms you down, which is what people need after an incredibly stressful time.”

Although Anna couldn’t see clients during the lockdown due to government restrictions, she took the time to perfect her treatment room and make sure all clients are safe when they visit.

She said, “I have been vaccinated twice and I test myself regularly to be sure as you can still pass the virus on after vaccination.

“People are still very careful about what they did and I want to make sure I can calm their thoughts. There are many precautions here and I want everyone to know they are safe.

“It’s been very difficult the past few months and I think it’s a very good idea to have some relaxing treatment at the end of the lockdown.”
