I am Giedre, founder of Ologie Clinic. My background is in Biomedical and Sport Sciences. I hold Masters in Drug Discovery from the University of Edinburgh and competed in BioQuarter Innovation Competition 2014. I am qualified Beauty and Massage therapist, and gained several diplomas in Ayurvedic Massage.
A beauty of calm and creative mind
In a busy world that’s constantly taking, we believe everyone needs to find time to give back to themselves. Important part of my personal life journey was learning to take time to myself and do what I love, do something I am passionate about. It sounds so simple doesn’t it? To my surprise it wasn’t. Only through inspirational experience of Ayurvedic Massage treatments abroad, I learned the importance and power of a healing touch from caring professionals in a safe environment, which is a proven method in helping lower stress-levels and promote calm, clarity and connection within myself and other people. As a result I spent the last two years developing the idea of Ologie Clinic, where holistic fusion of advanced science and healing Ayurvedic massage are painstakingly crafted to be powerfully effective and go deeper than conventional beauty.
With the help of my talented and diverse team, we have managed to create branding, corporate identity, website and open Ologie Clinic’s doors in the very heart of Edinburgh. Apart from being the only place in Edinburgh that offers traditional Indian mind balancing, stress relieving and mental chatter calming meditative Shirodhara therapy treatment, we offer innovative scientific beauty treatments too.
I was fortunate to welcome our manicure expert Melania into my Ologie team and she has introduced a contemporary manicure method - a variation of high speed microdermabrasion with e-files to safely remove excessive dead skin as a part of preparation process of a nail service followed by gel application and bespoke nail art.
We also offer powerfully-balancing, scientific, non-invasive but very effective Ologie Facial treatments. Skincare and make up brands we use are certified by Eco Cert, Leaping Bunny, PETA and Skin Cancer Foundation. Our clients love what we do and 98% of them have become regulars already.
Now I am really hoping I can convince you to vote for me so I can carry on to continue to build our reputation, and expand the business.
Ancient yet advanced
In Ayurveda, the centre of the forehead is the seat of spirituality, intuition and healing. Shirodhara brings about a profound sense of calmness, an immense feeling of relaxation and a wonderful stillness of the mind. The word Shirodhara translates to shiro (head) and dhara (flow). Shirodhara is referred to as Third Eye Therapy. Application of constant slow stream of warm oil onto the forehead is gentle and mindful. At Ologie Clinic we offer Shirodhara as our best mental tension relief and feel-good treatment. Benefits of Shirodhara treatment are endless; overall relaxation, quieting of mental chatter, easing away tension and anxiety, and nourishment of dry skin.
Copper bath ritual
Copper is an essential trace mineral that is vital to human health. It has antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. We invite our clients to ease the world away by adding a copper tub ritual to ologie massage treatments. In Ayurvedic medicine, the role of massage involves much more than relieving stress, relaxing tight muscles, and reducing physical pain. Once balance in the physical body is restored, channels of circulation help to balance three doshas - Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. We believe that there are no shortcuts in beauty. It is a journey requiring mindful lifestyle, suitable skincare and a restful mind.
Effective enriching services
We want to deliver treatments that help individuals unlock the secret of their true beauty. Rooted in Ayurvedic massage that goes beyond anatomical benefits, Ologie strives to balance body, mind and soul. To do so, our highly-trained experts, guided by our founder, create bespoke, tailored treatment plans. The plans combine the effectiveness of traditional Indian massage with sophisticated, scientific, non-invasive skin treatments to create enhanced wellbeing.
Our purpose is to create an environment of acceptance and comfort in a beauty industry. That’s how ancient meditative Ayurvedic Massage and modern beauty science meet. We aim to start changing the landscape in the beauty industry by creating more happy ‘that's unique me' moments, by putting aside impossible iconic beauty standards and instead promoting wellbeing and healthy authentic beauty in people.
With a successful fundraising I anticipate having a profitable clinic towards the end of 2019 and will then consider future expansion into carefully chosen cities within the U.K. Of course, my shareholders will also have the opportunity of experiencing the warmth, comfort and relaxation of Ologie at a special price.
