Introducing your Personal Massage Therapist.

Do you ever wish you lived at a Spa? Well who wouldn't. Spas are wonderful places that smell good, transport you to a place of tranquil relaxation. It's another dimension where stress & tension are non-existant.

Well your dream has come true. I am here to provide spa quality Massage & body treatments in the comfort & privacy of your own home. Just think how you'll feel after a 2 hr massage, foot scrub, body polish, & hot towel massage. After which you can relax at home without the spa experience ending at the spa.

After your treatment I recommend an aromatherapy bath & don't forget the wine & candles to bring added bliss. Curl up in a comfy robe. Keep yourself in a spa mind set. Don't be tempted to do anything you would normally be doing at home, like housework or watching tv. That's your at home spa experience.

Like the sound of it? Have a home "spa-cation" give me a call to arrange. I'll do all the work, you do all the relaxing.
