Owner and operator of the Country Day Spa Andrea Fisher has a contagious personality that bubbles with enthusiasm inside the light bright room housing the vibrant Aura Soma colours.
It all began Andrea said “As a 19-year-old, when a clairvoyant told me I should work with Colour”. She then talks with excitement about the journey that has seen her live and work in Sydney and Perth as a colour specialist with Paint companies and as a colour renovation specialist, eventually completing her dream of combining Beauty Therapy with her love of Colour.
As she encourages me to pick a colour, she puts a few drops on my hand and tells me about the benefits associated with the colour matching, “it really is about Mind, Body and Spirit” Andrea says .
Aura Soma was developed by Vicky Wall, and her book is well read on the side table in the Country Day Spa. Vicky had a vision during meditation in 1983 to create colour products and it seems Andrea’s early encounter with a clairvoyant has led her to follow that path to Colour Therapy as well.
It has been used in healing and wellness centres in “Japan, Tokyo and Singapore” said Andrea “and is taking off in Australia now”. Andrea says that Country Day Spa is the only spa in Australia that combines aura soma oils in beauty products taking it above and beyond the usual.
Whilst the Chakras are being cleansed, there is also an inviting massage table and a shelf that is laden with some very exciting Biodynamic Skin Care ranges from AEOS (Active Energised Organic Skincare) and a large range of SKEYNDOR products for both men and women.
Andrea believes that a total pampering session includes looking after both the skin and the client’s wellbeing. Offering mud wraps, thermal salt scrubs, facials, aromatherapy, massage and of course the Aura Soma. Country Day Spa has a little luxury pampering for both Him and Her.
Andrea chose Trentham to open her salon as she prefers the quieter surrounds away from the ‘busyness’ of Daylesford. Trentham has seen an increase in visitors, both day trippers and weekend getaways and now with a quality day spa to add to a relaxing break, Trentham has become a desired destination.
