I was visiting Melbourne for a yoga intensive and needed some relief for sore muscles. The therapist I had was excellent, very firm pressure (probably a bit firm for me but tolerable) and felt excellent afterwards. I'm trained as a massage therapist myself and enjoyed...More

Went in today after work expecting some relaxing massage. How wrong was I. Requested for a foot massage only to have an amateur untrained 'masseuse' handle my foot massage. Halfway through the massage he proceeds to blow his nose (yes albeit into a tissue) but...More

This place is really hit or miss. Unfortunately more misses than hit. Had a masseuse where all he did was just press random spots on my back. Pretty sure there is no training provided to staff and that anyone can get a job there regardless...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
