Abigail James, the ‘Super glow-getter’ and Denise Leicester, the ‘Natural healer’ and founder of Ila Spa.
The Super glow-getter, Abigail James
Abigail James is one of London’s top facial practitioners, renowned for the delicacy of her touch and her ability to make tired skin glow. Abigail works at the amazing new Lomax bespoke fitness, nutrition and well being centre in Chelsea’s Fulham Road. Here you will find a sleek, clean and urbane environment with Abigail at the centre of their Wellbeing Clinic and Spa. There are five treatment rooms at Lomax and all are designed with complete comfort in mind (the fluffiest towels and seriously cosy massage tables). This comfort level, and Abigail’s calming manner helps clients relax into a meditative state – a scenario that encourages the skin and body to heal. Abigail has the prerequisite healthy skin and bright eyes necessary to inspire the trust and admiration of her clientele – a pallor all the more impressive when you realise that she is a devoted mother to three children.
Abigail’s facials are always bespoke. She has a talent for ‘reading’ the skin (for clues to overall health) and works on all the layers of the skin (including the underlying connective tissues and structures). She then lifts and softens facial muscles (improving lymphatic drainage), which has an anti-ageing effect.
Abigail uses natural face therapy methods including steam, extraction, cranio-sacral healing, manual lymphatic drainage, facial reflexology, light therapy along with more advanced scientific technologies to heal and treat the skin.
At the core of her methods is the belief that a natural and organic approach to health and wellbeing is key. Abigail recommends organic and pure beauty brands such as Dr. Alkaitis, Dr. Hauschka, Weleda and Sophyto. These are beautiful products for an extraordinarily good facial.

The natural healer, Denise Leicester

The Face Oil for Glowing Radiance is so good that it has profound effects on both your emotions and your skin! From petal to product you can be sure that what you are buying is good for you, will make you feel spoilt and will make you glow. What more do you need?
Denise Leicester, the founder of Ila Spa, is dedicated to running both an ethical and sustainable business – creating a beauty collection that is completely free from synthetic chemicals and contains a rare level of organic purity. Achieved by sourcing the finest ingredients directly from local producers who cultivate and harvest the best raw ingredients.
You can enjoy an Ila Spa experience at the following locations worldwide – www.ila-spa.com/spa-locations. These spa sites have been chosen for their natural location. According to Denise, for a spa to be good it must be surrounded by nature, the spa-goer must have a good rapport with the therapist and natural products should be used. Denise’s favourite Spa is the Four Seasons Landaa Giravaru in the Maldives.
Top Tip: Argan oil – ancient and mystical oil deeply nurtures; Himalayan salt crystals (that hold the essence of purity from over 250 million years) and Rosa damascena are just some of nature’s most therapeutic nectars.
