Staff Spotlight: Meet Joanna

Tell us a little about yourself.

I grew up in Bydgoszcz, a city located in North-West Poland. I’ve got five siblings, 3 sisters and 2 brothers, I am the youngest girl.

I moved to the UK in 2006 right after my A-Level exams, I lived in Brighton (rocks!) initially and after 3-4 years I moved to London to work for a tour operator and to complete my university degree in International Tourism Management with Spanish.


What’s the best thing about working at the Massage Centre?

Happy, smiley clients and amazingly welcoming team. Everyone has been very helpful and nothing was too much to ask.


What do you do for fun?

I’m taking Bachata classes, it’s been almost 6 months now and I absolutely love it.

I also go to the gym regularly, love reading books – especially those on geopolitical matters, hiking, I just enjoy staying active 🙂

Last, but not least, playing with my cats must be my favorite thing ever.


Do you have any hidden talents?

I’ve started dotting mandalas on different objects during the lockdown. I think I got quite good at it because some of them sold when i attended few local art & crafts markets, have a look…






Who’s your hero/inspiration in life?

My parents! Amazing, determined people who never let us down.


What is your favourite thing to do in the wonderful city of London?

Take a walk on the River Thames from Hammersmith Bridge to Kew Bridge, having a coffee in one of the cute, little cafes in Fitzrovia and attending concerts (the energy of Londoners is something else).


If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?

Box of books (that’s one :-), my juicer and a toothbrush.


Tell us about your favourite holiday?

I’ve travelled all around, but Indonesia won my heart. It’s a country of kind, friendly people, amazing nature and breathtaking views. However, Iceland is magical as well and I will be going back there too.


What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

“If a man can’t spend at least £2k on an engagement ring just leave him”- I guess that’s good advice, but I haven’t had a chance to use it yet 🙂
