The start to a week away from the hustle and bustle of busy life started with a full body massage with Rebecca. Just floated away whilst she expertly pummelled away the tension. Very friendly staff, clean and pleasant environment. Made to feel very welcome.

I was given an appointment at short notice by a polite and considerate receptionist, I did not have to wait when I arrived. The therapist Rebecca was professional and responsive to my requirements. My 4 week headache has receded, many thanks.
