What to expect at your first Massage treatment:

  • I will contact you prior to your appointment to ask what you would like to get from the treatment.  At this time I will also go through aftercare with you such as drinking plenty of water to rehydrate the body and help flush out the toxins that have been released;

  • You will have already completed a health questionnaire by e-mail in advance of your Massage;

  • You will be made to feel at ease when you arrive;

  • Your privacy will be guaranteed as towels will cover your body and only the area being worked on at the time will be exposed;

  • You will find my treatment to be very peaceful, quiet and totally private.  I will play relaxing music,  have ambient lighting and a heated blanket on the massage bed;

  • ​You can ask me any questions you have;

  • I will advise on how many treatments will ideally be needed.
