Our Philosophy

The ethos of the Hart Spa is simple, we offer an authentic, holistic experience that takes inspiration from centuries of well-being tradition and meditation whilst harvesting the very best of nature from plants and flowers and combining this with the best technology the modern spa world has to offer.

The experience starts even before you reach our door with a calming walk through the garden centres plants and flowers to our log cabin. As you enter the dry spa you are greeted with the aroma from our signature products of room mist and candles whose ingredients were inspired from the plants within the garden centre.

It is incredibly important to the Hart Spa to select a specialist team who have the same approach to well-being and client care so you can be sure you are being treated by the very best local therapists and stylists. To complement our skills we chose to work with product brands with a like-minded approach. We are thrilled to have recently launched the first products from our own signature range, Monique Hart, created by our founder and inspired by plants you can find in the garden centre.

Our range of treatments are indulgent and luxurious and good for the soul, our holistic approach treats both inside and out leaving you looking and feeling fabulous.

About Monique

Born in America, Monique moved to the UK at the age of 12. Looking back she has always had an interest in both treatments and business and remembers charging her parents $1 for a hand massage when a child!

It was whilst studying for her business degree at Oxford Brookes her first business opportunity came along in the form of a shop and despite not being a therapist she was drawn to open a beauty and hair salon, so whilst in the final year of her degree she not only opened her new business but also gained a beauty therapy qualification.

After a successful 5 years in business a very traumatic personal period started in Monique’s life, which lead to her sadly closing the salon. She needed to find inner strength to get her through this very personal and stressful time so, as a practicing beauty therapist turned to what she knew best, her oils, to develop her very own bespoke blend. Inspired when she came across a Bleeding Heart plant in a family members beautiful walled garden Monique started learning from experts at the garden centre who advised on the benefits of the natural plants, and started to blend her own products. Sleep was a huge issue during this difficult time and alongside her oils Monique became inspired by the results she gained from meditation and mindfulness and began her yoga journey. It was the combination of this which lead to her inner peace slowly returning and to a new journey beginning.

The amazing results from the blends had to be shared so Monique started a 2 year project creating her own branded range of products and the launch of a new spa, set in the very grounds of the garden centre.

Monique has a wealth of experience she brings to The Hart Spa and Monique Hart products. A highly qualified skin practitioner with a NVQ level 3 in beauty therapy and a BA Hons degree.
She specialises in Dermalogica and Crystal Clear facials and has further expertise in advanced aesthetics which she combines with her holistic therapy qualifications. Providing a unique individual personalised service is key to everything Monique does and she continues to develop her skills and knowledge to offer the very best to her clients.

A true ambassador for the spa industry Monique gets involved with a variety of activities outside of the spa. Attending at events such as V-Festival offering treatments to the stars backstage and working with Lava Shells carrying out treatments on tour with The Saturdays and numerous bands backstage for The Big Reunion tour. She is also proud to have been profiled in trade press, Professional Beauty Magazine.
