Nutmeg Team

Nutmeg Spa has been established on the Old Town High Street since July 2009.

The Feng Shui interior design of Nutmeg Spa has been exclusively created by Company Director Joanna Eldred reflecting her passion for the traditional practice of harmonising the space and balancing the elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water with oriental touches and attention to detail to create the warm ambiance of a boutique holistic day spa.

Joanna began her beauty therapy career back in 1986 and celebrates 35 years in the beauty therapy industry after qualifying from the prestigious Champneys college, Tring, Herts.
Much of her early career experiences were gained at Champneys health resort itself , 5* spas in London and later moving into teaching beauty therapy.

Nutmeg Spa takes it’s name from her ancestor John Eldred, an English Merchant traveller who set sail from London in 1853. On his return to England, John brought back with him the first cargo of exotic Nutmeg from the spice Island of Run in Indonesia.
