Kathy Scott: Owner and therapist at Ginger Tree

Thank you for finding me and looking at what I can offer you at Ginger Tree.

Ginger Tree was born out of a passion to offer holistic and beauty treatments in a genuinely first class, personal and peaceful environment. An environment where commitment to quality organic and scientifically proven products work in harmony with the needs of the individual. It’s not one size fits all at Ginger Tree.

The name comes from the book The Ginger Tree by Oswald Wynd which was a TV series in 1989. A story of unstinting passion and a woman carving out her career in the face of opposition. It was a beautiful, haunting story and I never forgot it.

Ginger Tree offers you time, space and privacy, which is often missing in our lives and allows you to focus on yourself – even if it’s just for a short while. I wish to develop a long-term relationship and allow you, the client, to catch your breath,recharge and carry on.

About Me

25 years ago I was an HR Manager and then a Training and Development specialist working around the world with big blue chip companies dealing with culture change, management development, developing values driven workplace policies and spending a great deal of my time in an aeroplane, hotel, train, car and rarely at home. I also trained as a Homeopath as my interest in all things alternative/health and wellbeing was well and truly stimulated as my own health was under pressure. I was intellectually stimulated by my job but had no sense of personal satisfaction. Was I making a positive contribution to the world? It didn’t feel like it.

At the grand old age of 42 I met my beloved other half and we got married. Why be away from home constantly and never see the man of my dreams? We made a values-based decision and I made a career change.

Since 2005 I have run Ginger Tree Holistic Health & Beauty and have loved my work. The business has developed over the years to emphasize different aspect of the world of wellness and beauty.

I am an intuitive and skilled therapist trained in a range of massage and bodywork techniques including: ayurvedic, aromatherapy, hands free, muscle release / muscle energy techniques, Swedish massage and Langelotti Tri Therapy and I am  an experienced practitioner of other holistic therapies such as reflexology, indian head, hopi ear candling and homeopathy.

Since 2016 I have noticed an increase in skin health related problems and whilst passionate about good ingredients and educating clients on what they are using on their face and bodies, I have developed my skills and qualification levels to meet what I see is an increasing need for effective, results and science driven skin solutions.

The focus of my business moving forward is to combine my holistic approach and knowledge with the best non-invasive skincare technology and treatments, combined with organic and scientific cosmeceutical products that get real results whilst strengthening and restoring the skin’s integrity. 

Skin health is my personal passion and I’m on a mission to make Ginger Tree the Number 1 holistic destination for skin health in the North East following the philosophy of Feed your skin from within, Fortify your skin with active topical products and Finish your skin with clean make up that protects and supports skin health. For more information see our pages on  Advanced Nutrition Programme, Skin, and Make Up

Based on a detailed skin consultation, including an Observe Skin Diagnostic analysis, I create bespoke solutions to skincare problems, rather than you selecting one type of facial or treatment. I would advise you how to incorporate CACI non surgical facelift microcurrent facials, LED light treatments, Environ Galvanic facials, AlumierMD enzyme and chemical peel facials, manual lymphatic and aromatic facials into your skincare routine and all tailored to your skin needs. For more information book a skin consultation today.

What makes Ginger Tree special?

Here are a few things that I hope will encourage you to choose Ginger Tree:

  • Bespoke treatments
  • Knowledgeable, qualified therapist, including holding the MASCED Certificate to ensure I recognise skin changes that may require a doctor’s consultation.
  • 1:1 service, you will always have me as your therapist, so trust and a professional client relationship can develop.
  • I have tried all the product ranges on myself and researched thoroughly before deciding to use them in my salon. I have thought through all the ranges, to bring what I feel are the best possible products for healthy living and healthy skin.
  • luxury thick towels
  • cosy blankets and soft furnishings
  • heated couch
  • warm oil used in treatments
  • organic essential oils
  • high quality products
  • attention to detail both in the salon decor and treatments. I’m always looking for ways to make a treatment just that bit more special

Thank you for finding me and looking at what I can offer you at Ginger Tree.
