Leonie KleinShiatus

“A wonderful shiatsu from you Leonie – thank you so much. The perfect balance of support and relaxation, in a sensitive and professional way. Loving the oil blends too!” 



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.”
