Our Happy Customers

Piia LaaksoMassage

“I’ve used massage for well being and sport related injury for over 20 years. For the last 8 years I have used only Piia. The reasons are simple. She’s very professional, intuitive and questioning. No two massages are the same and feedback is always sought and comments offered on what Piia thinks during the massage. I would highly recommend first time massage clients or regular users to book a session without hesitation.”

Helen FieldingAcupuncture

“Having received acupuncture over the past 30 years from a number of practitioners I feel confident in placing Helen among the most qualified, professional and competent, not to mention having a big heart.”



Julie KelhamFertility Acupuncture

“Julie has a natural therapist’s gift for listening intently and putting me at complete ease.  I greatly looked forward to our sessions as she provided a dependably kind and supportive space for me while going through a testing time. Medical tests were not in my favour but my IVF was successful and I partly attribute that to Julie’s expert care.”



Victoria GazzardReflexology

“Victoria provides totally fantastic holistic therapies; I have used Reflexology for stress related anxiety and Massage for relaxation. Both treatments have helped immensely and I am now better able to cope with situations that I used to find incredibly stressful. Victoria is personable, attentive and a great therapist. I would not hesitate to recommend her to my family and friends.”
