“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!"
“An amazing full body massage! I've been left feeling relaxed, revived and re-energised! And tailored to my specific needs, it was absolutely wonderful.”
“Jo is an excellent teacher. She is patient and thorough and has a lovely calming presence.”
"I had a deep tissue massage with Joanna as I had been signed off work because of my bad leg and was recommended to her by a friend. She worked on trigger points in my lower back, hamstrings and calves. I'd had pain in my right leg for months and months and nothing else I was trying was helping; but after the massage the pain went away and I have enjoyed a few weeks with no aches! Now I am going back to her to maintain the results! Definitely recommend her!!"
