You will be asked to complete a thorough consultation prior to your appointment to determine exactly what your expectations from treatment are and what areas we need to address in your treatment plan. We will discuss the findings with you and together we will create a short, medium and long term treatment plan. You will have to undress unless your appointment is for Indian head massage but we will respect your modesty, covering you with towels on those areas not being treated. Please come wearing loose, comfortable and warm clothing when attending appointments with us.

It depends on your insurance policy as different companies offer different levels and types of cover for treatments. We can provide you with a receipt for any treatments you have for you to submit to your insurance company in support of your claim but we would recommend checking with your insurer before booking an appointment.

We ask that you arrive no more than 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment time as we are still adhering to close contact guidelines with regards to hygiene, cleaning protocals and best practice in terms of health and safety. 

The cost of treatment varies and depends on the type of treatment, duration and cost of provision. Prices start from £35.

A contra-indication is an existing medical condition or illness that could be made worse by treatment, or be a possible cause of cross-infection and contamination. As a result, the treatment may not be possible at all or it may be adapted and special precautions taken. In some cases, it may be necessary for the therapist to seek professional medical advice and a GP referral may be required. This is why we carry out a thorough consultation with every new client to establish if an contra-indications exist and enable us to determine the best course of action.

Reasons vary from individual to individual but in our experience the majority of clients choose to see a massage therapist to combat the symptoms of stress due to the pace and pressure of modern life. The main reason our clients choose to see us are for the benefits that the services we provide offer including stress reduction, recovery from injury, increase in flexibility and mobility, relief from chronic problems such as arthritis, improved sleep, enhanced relaxation and many more.

Yes, all our therapists are highly qualified with awards in nationally recognised qualifications. They are also fully insured and members of a professional organisation.

You can expect to feel calm and relaxed during and immediately after a treatment but medium to long terms results such as pain relief and stress management can take a while to build, especially for persistent or chronic health conditions. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither were you. Each time you have a treatment, drink enough water, eat the right kinds of foods and get enough deep sleep you move closer to wellness. We offer short, medium and long term treatment plans and regularly review these to ensure your needs are being met.

Yes, not only is it safe but beneficial as long as you check with your GP or Oncologist that it is ok to go ahead before booking an appointment. In fact Christies Hospital, has its own Complementary Therapies unit and Macmillans Cancer Support has lots of helpful information regarding complementary therapies and coping with cancer on its website. Our owner, Joanne Lee is qualified in Oncology Massage too so you are in safe hands.

We allow clients a maximum 10 minutes grace however we will be unable to see clients who are more than 10 minutes late as this would cause delays to our next client and compromise our high standards of hygiene. Clients who are late will still be charged for the full price of the treatment.

We are happy to rearrange your appointment to another day or time providing to give us 24 hours notice. Cancellations received with less than 24 hours notice will be subject to a charge of 50% of the original appointment cost.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

testimonial

I started to visit the centre when I was 16 weeks pregnant for pregnancy Massage and then reflexology towards the end. I can not thank Joanne enough, I struggled with sciatica and had quite a lot of stress on, and my weekly massages and venting got me through it all. Joanne is amazing and makes you feel so comfortable. Honestly counting down the days until everything back to normal.
