The masseur new exactly what she was doing

5 50 Deep Tissue Massage • Paid: £40

Would definitely recommend!

The masseur was waiting for me when I arrived, she was friendly yet professional.
She spent a few minutes before the massage asking me about any injuries. I would expect from any professional masseur and was glad she asked.
The masseur left the room as I was undressing, although I wouldn't have been concerned if she hadn't. There was quiet, relaxing music playing which blended into the experience perfectly.
I had what was described as a 'deep tissue massage' and thats exactly what it was. It was absolutely fantastic. I didn't want someone to just stroke or rub me I wanted to be pressed firmly in the right places and the masseur new exactly what she was doing.
I was comfortable and relaxed throughout the massage.

I was hesitant about using this clinic after reading the other review. However, I thought it silly to base my decision on 1 review so I rang up.
The receptionist was polite, friendly and helpful so I booked up for a massage.
The whole experience was relaxing and professional and I would definitely recommend this health centre.

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to post this review. We really appreciate your comments and we are so glad that you enjoyed the massage

1 50 Massage • Paid: £45

Awful.

After a busy few days at work I decided to treat myself to a nice relaxing massage. What I got, was quite the opposite!

To start with the room was stark white and bright and the massuese stayed in the room whilst I got undressed - no sense privacy. After explaining where my aches and pains were, she started to massage me by lightly pressing one finger up my back at a time. When I asked her to apply more pressure she said she couldn't as this was not a sport massage but only an aromatherpay one - and that I should 'put my trust' in her. She then proceed to smother my back in oil in a rapid fashion, with the unpleasant pumping sound of the oil dispenser. I then felt her throw the bottle of oil on the towel that was covering my legs - not very relaxing! There was no music, candles or mood lighting. When I turned over on to my back I was nearly blinded by the bright sunlight that was streaming through the open curtains. After asking her 3 times she finally shut the curtains to make it slightly less bright. She then started telling me to "breath in life, health and vitality" and "breath out stress, worry and anger". This was proceed by her trying to engage in full conversation with me asking me what I do to relax and for down time - I'm paying for a massage not a therapy session! Baring in mind she knew nothing about me she then started telling me how I should spend my down time and preaching at me saying I did "not know how to let go" - although she did say she wasn't judging me - could've fooled me! Again, this was meant to be a massage! Once the treatment was finished she left the room to go to the toilet and the sounds of the rickety old flush reverberated around the massage room - very pleasant! When she came back she told me I was done and, once again, decided to stay in the room whilst I got dressed again. At the end of the massage she sat down on her chair and looked as she wanted me to take a seat opposite her so she could life coach me some more. Needless to say I did not take a seat and made a swift exit. Stupidly I paid my £45 fee. Whilst walking down the street after leaving the building it dawned on me that I felt even worse than I did before I went in.

Overall, a very unpleasant experience and one that I would not recommend to others. Avoid at all costs.

We were very upset to read this review as the client did not comment on any of these things while she was here. We feel very much at a disadvantage if we are not given the chance to put things right. The therapist has 25 years experience with her clients and is a kind and caring person. The points made are totally out of character for her. We have tried twice to contact the client to apologise and try to put things right for her but she does not wish to speak to us. We genuinely wanted to offer some recompense but have not been allowed to do so. We are extremely sorry that the treatment was interpreted in this way and would welcome the chance to discuss it further if the client is happy to communicate
