Leading health and wellness educator The Power of Touch (tpot) has revealed the winners of its second annual Shine Your Light Awards. 

Hailed as ‘the people’s award for contribution’, the Shine Your Light Awards are designed to honour therapists across the UK and Ireland who go ‘above and beyond’ for their clients and communities.

“These awards are about recognising and rewarding those that go up and above, shining their light for others, giving back and doing more to connect with and contribute to their communities.“

Michelle Hammond

Founder, tpot

This year’s awards were judged by a panel of spa industry experts including European Spa contributing editor and founder of mindfulness company Kalm Horizons, Mark Smith, who was joined by tpot founder Michelle Hammond; Sunita Passi, founder of Tri-Dosha; and ‘The Spa Whisperer’ Nigel Franklyn, co-founder of Moss of the Isles. 

The panel was completed by Paula Perkins, CEO of Paula Perkins Spa Consultancy; Helena Field, manager of 42 Acres; and Beata Aleksandrowicz, massage expert and founder of Love Life Beauty.
