Heading up the friendly team at the Devonshire Spa is our Spa Supervisor and Head Therapist, Tracy Mycock.
Tracy brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her role here at the Devonshire Spa, often looking to introduce new treatments.
In the third of our Meet the Team series, we’ve turned the (massage) tables and focussed on her for a change!
When did you join the Devonshire Spa team?
I began working with the Devonshire Spa as a student in 2014. I loved my role and being part of the team which saw me become Spa Student Supervisor in 2015, before starting here full-time in 2018.
What did you do before the Devonshire Spa?
I have always worked in spas, and before coming here, I worked in a few different spas around the Buxton area. I really enjoy being able to help people with bespoke treatments or indulgent treatments for the ultimate relaxation.
What are your day-to-day responsibilities at the Devonshire Spa?
I’m responsible for supervising the many spa therapists that work and learn here in the Devonshire Spa, and ensuring the day-to-day running of the spa is being met to deliver an enjoyable and relaxing experience for all. So whether it’s maintaining the hydrotherapy pool, carrying out spa treatments, or ensuring the high standards of health and safety are being met, I’m your girl.
What is your favourite treatment?
I absolutely love the Bespoke Massage. Because it can be tailored specifically to suit you, it means that you’re guaranteed to get the right massage for you at that particular time. So if you’ve had a hard day and need to relax, your therapist would tailor a blend of calming oils for a soothing Oriental massage, or, if you’d overindulged on a long Bank Holiday weekend, for instance, they would create a blend of energising oils for a Mediterranean massage to drain toxins to leave you feel recharged and refreshed. It’s just perfect!
What is your ‘go to’ beauty product?
100% it would be Caudalie’s Grape Water Spray. It’s so refreshing and is a fantastic way to keep my skin moisturised throughout the day. And because it’s made from 100% organic plant water, it’s extremely gentle on sensitive skin – win-win!
Inside your make-up bag, what are your three favourite products?
The Caudalie Grape Water – which I’ve already raved about! Then I really, really love the Mii make-up range as it offers great, long-lasting coverage throughout the day – even in hot environments like the spa. Particular favourites are the Mii Moisturising Lip Lover lipstick in Smile, which is bright and summery, the One and Only Eye Colour in Flutter which has great staying power and the Uplifting Cheek Colour blusher in Cheer which is a subtle, natural shade.
When you are not at the Devonshire Spa, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I’m a bit of a home bird and love spending time with my partner and our children. I can often also be found walking Max, my Shih Tzu around Solomon’s Temple and the Goyt Valley which helps keep me fit.
