Some tips to help you get the most out of your session...
- a shorter session, taken on a regular basis, is much more effective and less painful than an intense once-off "quick-fix"
- reserve your appointment on a day and time where nothing urgent awaits you immediately after, your body will thank you for some rest
- shower hair and body before your visit, to achieve maximum benefit from the oils used
- make sure your therapist is aware of any allergies, recent injuries and current medical conditions
