Do you sell gift vouchers and how do I buy them?
We sell our gift vouchers in the salon so you can come in to get one, call us so we can make them in advance, or order online via the vouchers page and pay on collection.
How can I decide what voucher to buy for a friend/family member?
If the recipient has been to us before we can let you know what treatments they usually have to help you decide. Alternatively, you can buy a voucher without a specific treatment so they can choose what to pamper themselves with.
How long are the vouchers valid for?
Our vouchers are valid to use for six months unless otherwise specified, however any vouchers for the value of £100+ will be valid for 12 months.

Currently 9.30am - 1.30am on Saturday mornings. There are no set times during the week at present though there are therapists around every day, however you can call us and we will arrange for a convenient time for you to come in.
Do I pay on the day?
Unless we direct otherwise you'll pay at reception after your treatment, you can pay in advance if you wish. Many people take this option when booking an appointment for a friend or family member.

You can book appointments in salon and over the phone. Outside of hours and when our therapists are in treatment please leave a message with your name and contact number and we will call you back. Alternatively you can email us or fill in our contact form on the contact page.
