Take a deep breath, exhale and leave all your worries outside the door. This way, you will truly feel all healing benefits from your treatment. We are here to look after you!

It is helpful to communicate with your therapist before your treatment begins particularly any health concerns.

There is no pressure to talk during your treatment. Being quiet can enhance your relaxation during the treatment and our therapists understand and respect this.

However, if you have any questions or would like to talk, certainly do so, we will let you be our guide.

Post Treatment Advice

We also recommend that you drink plenty of water following a treatment, to help flush out released toxins.

Following some of the treatments, you may have a healing reaction and may feel tired or even a little emotional. This is perfectly normal and you are welcome to use our chill-out lounge until you feel ready to face the world.

You may experience a little soreness the day after a firm massage, particularly if this is your first massage or you do not have this treatment often. Don’t be alarmed if some slight bruising occurs. Bruising may be normal for some individuals.
