“Jo's massage is excellent. She has an ability to intuitively know what pressure is needed and I always come away feeling, looser, more relaxed and de-stressed. I would recommend her services to anyone who cares about their body.”
"The restorative yoga class that we booked at our rented accommodation in Bath for a hen party was the perfect ending to a lovely hen weekend and just what we needed - we enjoyed stretching, opening and easing our tired bodies and also loved the Yoga Nidra relaxation at the end! It was super relaxing and rejuvenating and eased our hangovers no end!! We will be telling friends having hen parties to book Joanna!"
“I have a form of MS and my massages with Joanna have a massive impact on my physical wellbeing - she works my full body and tailors each session to my needs on that day. She is amazing and was much missed during lockdown.”
"Joanna is always so tuned in to how I'm feeling and what I need. I work at a computer all day: her shoulder and back massages are a necessity, not a treat!"
