I saw Achara for a herbal consultation. I have always suffered from hay fever year in year out since I was a child. I decided to try something effective that wasn't steroid based. Achara was great. She went through historical and current conditions so she could tailor a herbal mix to help my body cope in spring. So far its working and I will go back to her in winter as prone to catching colds as well.

I had sore shoulders from carrying bags all week, they were really starting to seize up, also leading to neck pain. Achara used a combination of techniques. I was very tender in the shoulder and Achara checked with me each time to get the pressure just right. The massage was both relaxing and firm enough to release the tension. I feel great now!

Had a deep tissue massage with Achara to help relieve all the muscle tension that has built up. The treatment was fantastic, my body feels less tense and the knots have gone away. Achara is very friendly therapist and cares about your body and concerns, then focuses her attention to them.

Today I came for a relaxing massage with Achara. The treatment helped to relieve a lot of tension in my back. Achara is a friendly therapist, she listened to my concerns regarding my back. She is definitely really good at what she does and I would highly recommend her.

I cannot rate Ashlins highly enough. I have been going to here for about 4 years for massages. I have seen different therapists, but usually try and see Rina. Every therapist I have seen has been excellent. Rina is amazing, but if she's not available I have booked in with Sylwia and recently Achara (hope I've spelt it right!) who was excellent. If I had the money I would be here every week!

Today I had a Thai combination massage, this was to help me relax from the stress and knots I was having. The treatment was absolutely amazing Achara used a good amount of force to relieve my knots and stretch my body I am left feeling extremely relaxed and restful. Achara was very welcoming and made me feel at ease, she is amazing and I look forward to another Thai combination massage.

I wanted to have a treatment to help me during a very stressful time, I was feeling down, tired, full of tension. my body and mind needed to relax. I was booked for Thai combination massage and foot massage, and it helped me a lot. My back feels so much better and my mood feels lighter, all my muscles are relaxed. I received very good information from Achara regarding the use of essential oils and herbs in helping me during my mourning process.

I came in to have a Thai Yoga session with Achara to help with stress. The treatment was very relaxing and all my muscles feel stretched out. It was a real treat and I feel wonderful.

Had an appointment with Achara, to have a massage to help with painful tight shoulders. The treatment really helped. I'll be back again, it was fantastic!

Quite possibly the best massage I've ever had anywhere in the world!

Just had a wonderful massage with Achara. Her unique style combines pressure techniques with oil work and she uses fantastic herbal oils which she makes herself. One of the best massages I have had and I will certainly be booking again soon.

Achara is very good, she gave me a very deep tissue massage and I feel like a new woman. I would definitely recommend her!

I was feeling stressed and a bit of an ache on my upper back, I tried Thai-combination massage with Achara it really worked. I feel very relaxed and pain free. I highly recommend trying Thai-combination massage.

I came in to have my shoulder and back pain seen to and saw Achara for thai combination massage, my first session with her was great she helped me relax and wasn't too rough. My muscles feel a lot looser and I look forward to further sessions.

i came for a massage to help with my tension and tiredness, i saw Achara she was so good she gave me a light and very relaxing massage just what i needed.
