Since having children (some years ago now!) I have failed to find any exercise I have been able to stick to and it was getting harder and harder to stay fit.
I have now been training with Olivia for 8 months and really enjoying it. Olivia changes it each session so it’s never boring and always challenging!
With a great temperament, Olivia is very encouraging and keeps the sessions fun.
I’m certainly a lot fitter than I was before I started and somewhat leaner too!
I can highly recommend.

A preventative and restorative treatment designed to ease tight muscles. It uses a mix of classic massage strokes, with increased pressure, typically following the muscle from insertion to origin. The aim is to reduce muscle tension by releasing knots and restoring elasticity. Deep tissue massage is also designed to increase blood flow to targeted muscles, kick-starting the body’s natural healing process.
This treatment is the perfect way to de-stress, unwind and chill out. Using light, flowing strokes and high-quality oil, your massage therapist will carefully release your muscles and calm your nervous system. A gentle, nurturing massage for when you need a little self-care.
This pleasurable massage treatment is designed to release the areas where cellulite most commonly appears and to engage the body’s natural healing process (blood and lymph circulation). This hands-on treatment uses stroking, kneading and rhythmic motions to loosen fatty tissues and smooth out the skin’s surface. It will also boost your energy.
