FAQ

 

Which massage is best for me? It really depends on what, if any ailments you want help with or how you want to feel after your treatment. We would recommend that you contact us to discuss your options further.

How long will the massage last? We have listed the times alongside the prices. We book out enough appointment time to also include a consultation, time for you to undress and then dress again.

Do you massage men? Yes we are happy to massage men, however it saddens us to have to write the following but unfortunately we have had a few bad experiences over the years.

We are professional therapist offering professional massage, beauty & holistic treatments only! Please do not embarrass yourself by acting or speaking inappropriately, otherwise we will have no other option but to ask you to leave, but first you will be required to pay for your treatment to cover our wasted time. We will also request that you never return... Please do not waste our time or yours!

Massage Aftercare Advice

After enjoying any massage it is perfectly normal to experience the following, known as contra-actions:

 

* Feeling tired or increased energy, (if you are experiencing tiredness please take care if driving).

* Increased bladder/bowel movements.

* Cold like symptoms

* Changes in sleep pattern

* Localised tenderness, aching or soreness within the muscles, (please remember to tell me about your experience on next visit  so I can consider adapting the treatment).

* Headache, dizziness or nausea (if experienced drink water!)

* Temperature changes

* Heightened emotions, perhaps even being tearful.

These reactions occur as your body works to re-balance and detoxify.
