Very professional treatment by Dr Alex. Ayurveda massage was a very positive experience.
Excellent - this girl knows her stuff
Meena was amazing, she really made me relax to the point I was asleep. Magical hands from a lovely warm young lady. I will come back soon for sure.
Really missed Mina while she was on holiday. So glad she's back! Great massage
Consistently excellent and having a very positive impact on my back and shoulders.
Soon after booking my appointment, the venue contacted me to say that slot was not available and could I reschedule. I'd really been hoping for a massage that morning so was "umming" and "ahhing" a bit on the phone, the lady offered me an appointment time for the following day and to include a free 15 min body scrub for my inconvenience. This obviously swayed my decision and I made the booking. The following day I arrived for my treatment, a 90 min Abhyanga Ayurvedic Massage. The venue is in the basement of a tanning salon. They've attempted to provide a spa ambience, with sounds of trickling water and candles burning, but the gloominess and gaudy furniture leaves the place with a slightly seedy feel to it. I was asked to wait as the previous session was just finishing. After the previous customer left the room, the employee was in and out of the treatment room like a flash and told me to go on through. The treatment room, also dark, was pleasant enough, I liked the bamboo plant in the corner. She told me to get undressed and to lay down on one towel, and cover myself with the other. But first I had to eat this kit-kat she handed me before leaving the room. It was then I noticed the crumbs on the massage table from the previous customer's pre-massage snack. A little baffled, I followed the instructions and was laying face down on the table when she re-entered the room. She then proceeded to give me a long spiel on Abhyanga Ayurvedic massage, pretty much word for word from what I'd already read on their website AND after I'd said I'd had Aryuvedic massage before. The whole time she's talking to me I'm lead awkwardly on my front, twisting over my shoulder to look at her, starting to shiver under the teeny tiny towel she'd given me. She took my pulse and told me I had dominant Kaphadosha, I've been told different in the past, but I was happy for her to do her thing. The massage in itself was ok... a little bit clunky and haphazard. One foot was massaged along with the leg, while the other was left alone. Ten minutes into the massage she left to go get more oil, leaving me alone with the strangest relaxation/pop music I have ever heard. When she returned I had to ask if she had anything without singing, she switched the music to something much more suitable which really helped. Halfway through the massage, when asked to turn on to my back, the kit-kat I had eaten started to make me feel really sick. I led there in discomfort for the remainder of the treatment. It ended as driftlessly as it had started, she told me to take my time and left the room. I lay there feeling disappointed, it hadn't felt like 90 minutes had passed, and aryuvedic massages I'd had in the past had always ended with a facial massage. And then I remembered the "free 15 minute body scrub" hadn't happened and felt even more disgruntled. I checked the time on my phone whilst getting dressed, she'd ended the massage on time despite starting it 10-15 minutes late. I saw her again on my way out and she told me to drink water etc. etc. I suppose I could have mentioned the body scrub at that point, but to be honest I just wanted to leave more than anything. Later that day I received a text from the therapist stating she'd forgotten my body scrub and to remind her next time I book! Sorry honey, not gonna work this time. Worst and weirdest massage of my life.
Moses is a truly terrific masseur: merciless yet gentle.
