Emily Walsingham

Massage Therapist

Hello, I’m Emily.

I studied a diploma of Beauty Therapy on the Gold Coast in 2014 at The French Beauty Academy. On the completion of my studies I moved to Adelaide with my family and have been working as a Beauty Therapist in a local day spa for the past eighteen months.

While I continue my work in the day spa I am pleased to join the Lifewell team and offer massage treatments for relaxation.

I enjoy seeing people de-stress, taking the time for themselves and enjoying a relaxing massage. It is rewarding to see the difference in how clients come in, to how they leave after their treatment.
