We provide a variety of massage styles in Twickenham. This includes sports , pregnancy and deep tissue massage by physiotherapists or therapists with medical degrees.
What constitutes a great massage is unique to everyone. We assess and analyse you before your massage so that we can provide different pressures and styles to match your needs.
We leave five minutes between clients to clean the room with wipes and an aerosol disinfectant. The therapists follow the government guidelines by wearing a face mask and washing hands between sessions. To find out more, take a look at our specific COVID-19 page.

That is the science behind it all. However, the most important thing is that it makes you move and feel better!
