* Do we offer couples massage?

We don’t offer couples massage where you are in the same treatment room together, but we can offer two massages in separate treatment rooms at the same time.

*Can I get a massage if I’m under 18 years of age?

Yes, you sure can! Please note you will require a parent or guardian to complete our minors consent form, depending on your therapist and age, you can also require a guardian to be present during your initial consultation. It is best to give us a call once you have made your appointment.

*Do you have a special pregnancy table which allows me to lay on my front?

Yes both our massage tables have speciality inserts which allow your bump and chest to be supported while lying face down. You do not need to request this table during booking, simple let your therapist if you prefer the speciality pregnancy table or side-lying position.

*Can I pop into the clinic to purchase a Gift Voucher?

We don’t have a reception so we kindly request you to phone us to arrange a specific time when a therapist has a break between clients to sell you a voucher.

*Do we accpet expired gift vouchers?

No, we don’t. Our gift vouhcers are valid for 6 months which is plenty of time to book in. We make this as clear as possible to the purchaser and have it clearly printed on all physcial vouchers and e-voucher. As a small business we aren’t able to offer 12 months like large chain companies can. We appreciate your understanding and support.
