Rachel has a rare brain condition and an invisible disability, she struggles with chronic vertigo and sight and depth perception issues. She decided she had to turn her life around and get off the benefits. After a car accident, a compensation payment was her ticket out. Rachel now offers non-surgical liposuction – a no pain, no downtime and non invasive treatment.
What’s your favourite part of the job?
My clients reaction to their results! I cannot explain how happy that makes me feel. The struggles of coping with my disability and working full time means nothing in that moment when I see my clients face and the result photos.
What accomplishment are you proud of?
I am proud to say that my daughters death raised organ donation awareness in Wales and 15,000 people carry organ donor cards because of her. I have been told stories of many people that are alive today because of this. Together, we got people talking. So if the worst happens their organs can help others can live. That’s a miracle right there.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I see Inch Go Lipo all over Wales with a team working with me who share my passion for what I do – it’s not about money. I want my services offered to everyone. That’s why I keep my treatment prices low – to help everyday people.
What did you want to be when you were younger?
A psychologist. I feel strong empathy with everyone I come into contact with, especially with my clients. I offer a safe space for them during treatments. Remember: What happens in Clinic, stays in clinic.
Who was the most influential person to you as a child?
My form teacher In high school was a very influential person for me. Everyday he took the time to speak to me about anything bothering me and to ease my life at that time. It’s only a small thing to check in on someone but it can really make a difference.
What’s your favourite thing about Cardiff?
The people – what you see is what you get. They always have your back.
What are the greatest challenges you face?
Online trolls. I wish I could remove the word ‘Liposuction’ out of what I do. People associate the word with pain and brutal surgery to get the fat out…but that’s not what I do. It’s called 40k Cavitation Liposuction and I can remove fat from your body one area at a time and change your shape forever. I then use Radio Frequency Tightening on the treated area to tighten the skin after your fat loss. In just 8 painless treatments you could lose between 2 and 4 inches of fat off your wobbly bits and change your shape forever. However, a course of 8 treatments are not necessary for everyone, 90% off my clients see a difference after just one treatment at Inch Go Lipo.
What piece of advice would you give to entrepreneurs starting out in your field?
Buckle up – it’s gonna get bumpy! But you can do it! The Beauty industry is a billion pound industry and there is space for all of us to carve out our niche in this blossoming market. Invest yourself into your clients and their story. I have made some great friends through my work.
