One of the best massages I have ever received. I had a deep tissue massage from Hannah and she definitely knows how to target them and relieve the tension. Thank you! P.s. The sento bath afterwards tops off the whole experience.

I had a massage/steam room & bath/relaxation session this morning. Left feeling like I was walking around in a cloud. Make sure you don't have to do anything but be relaxed and present for hours afterwards. Thank you so much Aquilla and Mike xx
