Not just massage

You can also buy SLS free soaps for kids (or yourself) and fizzy bath balls (for everyone). If you are buying a massage gift voucher, you can add a 6cm fizzy bath ball to the voucher for £2. The recipient can select which one they want when booking or at their appointment.

The range of soaps will expand in future. You can choose to have scented with pure essential oils or unscented and select from various colours. All colours used are EU approved colours for use in bath products. The ingredients list is available on the Bath Products page. If you work or live in central London, Islington or nearby areas, I can deliver to you at a prearranged time.
