From ‘product junkie’ in love with luxe to the discipline of detox denial, a believer in nature’s ability to heal and new technologies for positive ageing; stunned by the transformative power of the human energy system – and ancient systems of medicine. And a sucker for a salon blow dry and wrinkle-reducing cream. I’m passionate about it all, experience it, write about it and advise on it.

I wrote Healing Sources out of respect for the the traditional health and wellness cultures of Central and Eastern Europe.

It takes readers on a journey through 12 countries from the Baltic to the Black Sea, celebrating the power of natural resources to heal and exploring the ‘then’ and ‘now’ of living well in this rich, varied and still relatively unknown region when it comes to ‘spa’.

While living and working in Asia, as editor of Elle Decoration Hong Kong, I fell in love with regional health and beauty rituals, from the paddy fields to the palaces.

‘Tropical Spa’ was the first book to showcase top destinations and traditional treatments from a continent that was soon to become the darling of the global spa industry. It’s sold 90,000 copies.
