About China Rose | Mission Statement | About the Treatments and Products



China Rose was a one-woman business started by Connie Li.  Initially an idea she created in the early years of her working life during the mid '90s, Connie progressively developed the concepts which she works with today.  In the early part of the new millennium, China Rose came into fruition.

Connie's dedication and passion for her work was first recognised and rewarded when she was named Student of the Year at Tresham Institute in Northamptonshire, where she trained in Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy.   After qualifying in 1995, her working career began.  Starting as an independent therapist she then became a member of an invincible team at Ashleigh Clinic, Leicester where she gained invaluable experience and discovered her interest in holistic treatments.  

She progressed onto the original team responsible for starting up the Spa at Chancery Court, an award winning spa in a five star hotel in London, where she was able to fulfill her desire to further her knowledge and skills in complementary therapies.  Between 2003-2005 she was a hands on manager in a pressured high street salon environment at Apricot Health Studio in Radlett, Hertfordshire.

Over fifteen years spent in different establishments have led to experience and appreciation of varying working environments, practices and clientele.  More importantly, Connie has been able to develop on areas of particular interest to herself.  These include encouraging natural forms of health and beauty care with the belief that prevention is better than cure and the integration of natural therapies with 'conventional' health care.  Also recognised is the importance of keeping current with developments of technological advances in the health and beauty industry so a truly holistic approach is used to suit an individual's needs.

As well as holding world recognised IHBC qualifications in Beauty Therapy, Connie has continued to quench her thirst for knowledge by studying related topics and gaining qualifications in Aromatherapy, Baby Massage Instruction, Thermal Auricular Therapy, Reflexology, Indian Champissage, Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage, Hairdressing, Feng Shui and Crystal Therapy.  More modern treatments include Eyelash Extensions (Connie was one of, if not the first to introduce this in Harpenden), Advanced Cosmetic Procedures and Shellac Nails.

Connie has been trained in and used a wide range of products including Clarins, Jessica Nails, E’spa, La Prairie, Bio-Sculpture Nail System, Environ, Guinot, Decleor, Mandel, St Tropez, Nailtiques, Phytomer, Ionithermie, Mary Cohr, Transion, Depegei, Murad, Transdermal Electrolysis,  Cezanne Non-Surgical Face Lift, Advanced Electrolysis, 3D Lashes, MD Formulations, Shellac and REN facials.

Connie is a member of the professional body the Federation of Holistic Therapists.  For more information on the federation's dedication to the the work of the therapists and the welfare of the public, click

After having her two children, Connie reduced her working hours to a part time basis but hopes to be able to offer more appointment times again in the near future. 



To help self-achievement of optimum health for mind, body and soul through information, choice and customised, effective and professional treatment using the most natural resources, in a holistic manner with minimal compromise on  the environment or other life forms .



Most of the treatment protocols on offer have been developed by Connie herself.  From her experience of conventional and advanced beauty and holistic therapy methods, she has incorporated techniques to encapsulate her style of work - natural, effective, good value with attention to detail and focus on quality of service.  Careful research has been carried out in order to find product ranges which marry well with the treatments.  These are products that Connie believes in and hopes that you, the client will too.

Courses of treatments are available with a 10% discount on three treatments or receiving six treatments on courses of five.

Bridal parties are entitled to a 15% discount on five or more treatments booked three months prior to the wedding.

Treatment of juniors (under sixteen years of age) is limited to the discretion of the therapist and may require the signed consent or presence of an adult.

Whilst much care is taken to offer services of the highest standard possible, it would be appreciated if clients provided information of any conditions that may be detrimental to the effects of the treatments.
