A Peterhead woman has been crowned Massage Therapist of the Year at the Scottish Hair and Beauty Awards 2016.

Rachel Duthie, who owns Bee RelaxeD based at at Buchan Braes at Boddam, says she was delighted at her win as she is incredibly passionate about the business she has developed over the past year.

Having worked in the oil and gas industry for ten years, Rachel says she opted for a change of vocation.

In 2014 she began training with the Scottish Massage School in Aberdeen on her weekends off work. She decided to take a break with oil and gas and follow her passion for massage and in November last year officially opened the business. Over the past 12 months she has assisted with massage at various strongman events and with local football teams.

She is now looking forward to the introduction of baby massage and medical acupuncture to the business in 2017.
