Meet the team

Nutmeg Spa takes its name from Joanna’s ancestor John Eldred, an English merchant traveller who set sail from London in 1853. On return to England, John had brought with him the first cargo of Nutmeg to England from the spice Island of Run in Indonesia.

Joanna Eldred & Victoria Bodhini Armstong


Joanna began her career back in 1986 and celebrates her 30th year as a beauty therapist qualifying from the prestigious Champneys College in Tring, Herts. She spent most of her early career working at the health resort and also teaching beauty therapy.

The unique ambience and interior design of our spas are down to Joanna’s creative flair and attention to detail.

Joanna also makes Nutmeg Spa’s own range of beautiful hand-made natural soaps and bath bombs.

Nutmeg Spa’s Reiki & Meditation teacher, Victoria began her career back in 1999 as a beauty & holistic therapist. Victoria has extensively studied and continues to explore spirituality and healing since learning Meditation, Reiki and Crystal healing in her teenage years.

Victoria is also qualified to teach Hatha Yoga and has a keen interest in Yoga Philosophy, Chanting and Sound Healing.
