Calmingales Beauty

Need to unwind? Calmingales Beauty is a rural salon that does tranquil in spades, offering state-of-the-art facials and luxurious skincare treatments.

Gemma Waller, beauty therapist and owner of Calmingales is a woman doing something very right. Her therapy space is in the chocolate box village of Yattendon in West Berkshire, above the hair salon Adam & Eve – entirely hidden from the world. How the hell does anyone know she’s even here? As with all great little businesses, all it takes just a few super-satisfied clients to tell their mates and, boom, you’re booked up to your eyeballs.

A steady stream of clients now come for her anti-ageing CACI facials (much-loved by many a fresh-faced celeb), Decleor skincare treatments and massages, nails and waxing services. Gemma, has worked at various Berkshire spas and salons and the best of those worlds have been put into Calmingales. She uses Decleor, used in spas like Champney’s, that are packed of essential oils and science.

If you’re heading to Muddy award-winning Royal Oak or The Pantry, book in for treatment. Coffee, cake and CACI. It’s the only time you’ll be able to stuff your face and head home looking 5 years younger.
