Follow these and we promise your experience will be one you won’t forget - you’ll want to book your next visit straight away!

    2 - Arrive Early
    Make sure your alarm’s set and arrive at the spa with plenty of time to spare. Cutting it fine can make you feel stressed and will set the tone for your day ahead, so make sure you give yourself some time to relax beforehand.

    3 - What to Wear

    5 - Say How Your Feel
    For most first timers, visiting the spa can be a daunting experience. But don’t worry, our staff are completely focused on making your first time the best it can be. So if something is on your mind, tell your therapist; they’re there to help.
