A maximum of 5 minutes before your booked time is preferable as I don’t have a receptionist or waiting area so would not be able to accommodate anyone any earlier than that if a previous client has overrun.
The map on the Contact page is pretty good, but Sat Nav does not always bring you to the door. If you find yourself in the quarry way business park turning, take the opposite turning and you will arrive at our drive on the left. View map
Yes, there will be no other clients booked at the same time as you, so come up onto the driveway, and park on the hardstanding opposite the house.
You need to add approximately 15 mins onto each of the treatment times stated in the Therapies & Treatments pages to allow for consultation (a little longer on your first visit) and relaxing at the end of the treatment.
Yes, there is room for one person to relax in the treatment room while you are there. They may like to bring something to read.
Anything comfortable is fine, and I would recommend something warm to put on afterwards as your temperature can drop quite a lot during a treatment.

I am happy to except new female clients or new male clients however new male clients must come with high recommendations from people I know, or long term clients.
After the treatment
Most people feel quite able to drive home, especially as time is allowed for you to come round, but if you are worried, have someone pick you up.
You will be given a comprehensive list of things to do and things to avoid that will enhance your treatment. The main ones are to plan to be able to rest for as long as possible afterwards, drink plenty of water and avoid eating a heavy meal.
Most prescription medicines will not be adversely affected by the treatment, but it would be helpful to know at the time of booking if you have any serious health issues. Likewise, some aromatherapy oils and products cannot be used with certain conditions, so the more I can know about these, the more likely it will be to work out the best way forward. In some cases it is necessary to seek the advice of your doctor, so if you think this may be the case, please do this before you book.
There are certain oils, treatments and products that should not be used during pregnancy, massage, however can be adapted to suit and can be very beneficial for helping with relaxation etc. Reflexology, Waxing, Spray Tanning should be avoided at least in the first 3 months of pregnancy.
