What to expect

Treatments are not rushed, and everything discussed in your consultation will be in complete confidence

Your first treatment includes a free confidential consultation to gather relevant medical and lifestyle information. This helps Christina understand underlying causes of tension and imbalance in your body. A ‘tailor made’ treatment plan will be established. This consultation will not impact your massage time. Allow 15 minutes extra for the consultation in your schedule at your first treatment.

Homecare Advice
Personally tailored homecare advice may be offered as part of your treatment. Relatively small adjustments in your lifestyle and daily habits can often be enough to bring about a significant improvement in your health and well-being. This will help improvements last and to retain that relaxed feeling for as long as possible after your massage.

Massage Waxes and Oils
Christina uses a range of quality base massage oils containing the finest quality natural ingredients, organically-produced and cold-pressed where possible. Christina never uses massage oils or waxes containing artificial fragrances, preservatives or other chemicals.

The base body massage oil used is grapeseed oil, which is plain, nutritious and contains minerals and vitamins for the skin.  This is used alongside massage waxes based on beeswax, coconut oil and olive oil; these are natural, preservative free, and lightly scented with essential oils such as lavender or rosemary.  For facial massage, Christina uses Neal’s Yard aromatic massage oil, an organic, natural product containing fragrant essential oils. Bliss!

Payment Methods
Christina accepts payment by cash or bank transfer.  Payment is to be made in full on the day of your appointment.  Cheques and credit / debit cards are not accepted at this time.

Terms and Conditions / Cancellation Policy
Should you need to cancel or reschedule a massage appointment, please contact Christina 24 hours in advance so the session can go to another client. Cancellations received with less than 24 hours’ notice may be billed at 50% of the cost of the booked treatment. “No shows” will result in the full treatment cost being charged to you before further massage treatment can be booked.
