The temperature is monitored to your needs, while the music nicely blends in with the ambience as your therapist works her way, gently massaging to give you the tranquil that you so need, away from your otherwise stressful lifestyle.
Enjoy the session as you experience the stress leaving every pore of your body, only to be replaced by peace and calm. As your over one and a half hour session gradually draws to a close, you are left feeling truly rested and pacified.
