What happens in a Session 

The first session includes taking a client history and putting together a treatment plan if needed. This can take some time so it is generally advisable to book 90mins for a first time appointment. Depending on the therapy chosen, essential oils may be used, as they can facilitate the therapist in achieving the desired result with regards to the clients needs. All therapies take place on a massage table with the appropriate draping via towels, although alternative accommodations can be found for those who might have difficulties climbing onto a table.

Length of session        

60mins    £40     90mins      £50
