On arrival your warm welcome will be followed by a free consultation which will be
completely confidential and as thorough as necessary to establish your past medical
history and lifestyle. We will then agree together your treatment plan and you can
relax. My studio is inviting, warm and luxurious with soft towelling, an extra wide
couch and various bolsters and pillows to ensure your utmost comfort and modesty
at all times. Relax and enjoy the ambience of your therapy room, drift away with
soothing and relaxing music and draw in the sweet aromas of fragranced candles and
essential oils giving you a complete sensory experience.
