What does a treatment involve ?
A full body massage lasts around and hour and a quarter, to an hour and a half and you will need to allow a little longer for the first session as a full consultation will be conducted prior to the treatment.
Treatments take place on a massage couch and you will be covered with towels and kept warm. Oils will be used to help to nourish the skin and allow a fluid, free-flowing massage.
It is advisable to drink plenty of water and if possible to avoid alcohol and other stimulants for around 24 hours following the treatment
