To paraphrase Dorothy: 'There is no place like London.' I hope I can convince you of that here. Also check out my blog at damselwithadulcimer.wordpress.com and my theatre reviews at www.playstosee.com

The Retreat was established by Morag eight years ago. Since then she has built up a regular clientele, many of who request the same therapist whenever they visit. Before opening the salon Morag employed a Feng Shui advisor to help with the layout of the Retreat, and then engaged a designer to put these ideas into practice for the arrangement of the premises. Whatever you may think about these ideas, they certainly work. As you step through the front door and into the reception area you become aware of what a relaxing, calm environment you have entered.
The four treatment rooms have all been set out along Feng Shui principles, too, so that each one has a different feel and atmosphere.
The salon uses Dermalogica products for the majority of its treatments. They sell these products as well as items made by Crabtree and Evelyn, Wax Lyrical and OPI. The treatments available include hair removal, electrolysis, fake tanning, manicure, pedicure, reflexology and CACI. Massages available include facial; back, neck and shoulder; full body; Indian head, pregnancy and Aromatherapy and Hot Stone treatments. Some of these treatments are also available for men.
The Retreat also offers spa experiences for detoxifying and de-stressing those of us whose lives are that little bit too hectic.
Regular clients are sent an emailed newsletter that keeps them up to date with any special offers. Currently you will get a sixth treatment free after you have purchased five. Now isn't that a good enough reason to treat yourself to the Retreat?
