In our clinic we have a therapist offering remedial and sports massage. Massage reduces tension and tenderness in the muscle as well as stretching the muscle and other connective tissues allowing the body to move more freely. Easing tension helps with stress, postural problems, improves sense of well-being and can aid recovery from sports performance. Contact the clinic for more information.

Low Odour with minimal disruption Environmentally Friendly Bio-degradable - Excellent Results!


The founder of The Secret Garden Spa, Tina Frew experienced this first-hand recently when her partner Rob had to travel to Manchester for five weeks of treatment. Fortunately, they were lucky and had lots of help and support from family and friends but they saw just how many people were not so lucky and were

struggling with the costs of things like travel, accommodation and parking, not only for themselves but more often for the friends and loved ones who wanted to support them.

Tina decided, that rather than attacking the already-stretched system failing to provide all the support people need at a time like this, she wanted to do something practical and positive to help people who are not so blessed as she and Rob were. This is why she's inviting you to come to The Secret Garden Spa on Monday 30th of April, where you can choose from a Mini Facial, a Back Massage, or an Indian Head Massage for the fabulous price of just £25.00 which saves you a whopping £7.00 off the regular price of your chosen treatment... and remember, the whole £25.00 goes to Macmillan.

So, if you’re ready to support an amazing charity, while you indulge in some awesome treatments and quality ‘Me Time’ simply call Tina at The Secret Garden Spa to book yourself and any friends you think would also enjoy a treat in a good cause.
