Poly – Remedial and Therapeutic Massage
Experience a unique combination of Thai, Medical and therapeutic traditions that Poly has put together from her years of experience and training. Her service has been specially created for a pre and post workouts using slow, rhythmic compressions and stretches along the body’s energy lines. It also combines elements of deep tissue and sports massage, releasing muscular tension, stress and improving mobility and flexibility. This massage has also proven to be effective in treating migraines and some minor injuries.
Antonia Curling – Massage Therapist
Antonia’s journey into bodywork started in 2003 with her training with ITEC in Swedish Massage. She has subsequently gone on to train in Deep Tissue Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Hot Stone Massage and Advanced Clinical Massage Techniques. In 2014 she travelled to America to continue her education in Myofascial Release (John F Barnes method) adding to her 13 years of experience. It is her training in Myofascial Release that has been her driving force for the past 2 years, believing that working with the fascia (connective tissue) is the missing link for easing long term physical, emotional and habitual trauma. Myofascial work is gentle at application but works at a very deep level.
Antonia believes that each body is different so combines all of her experience and knowledge into a tailormade treatment, individual to each client. After an initial consultation to discuss a targeted plan for specific problems, Antonia will apply the skills she has learnt that allow her to understand body dynamics, help ease headaches, back pain, hip problems, stress or, if you prefer, just a more relaxing Therapeutic Massage.

Nubia – Massage Therapist
Nubia has been a massage therapist for the past five years. She has always been fascinated with complementary therapies and how the body works to heal itself. Nubia began her journey as a massage therapist whilst working at an acupuncture clinic. After having known Nubia both personally and professionally for some time, the owner of the clinic stated that she should give serious consideration to undertaking a course in massage therapy due to her kind, caring and compassionate demeanour. From this point onwards, a passion for massage therapy, along with further exposure to complementary therapies, was born – with the former winning out and becoming Nubia’s main interest and passion, to which she has dedicated herself for many years – including in Spa settings and Private Massage with a client base consisting of businessmen and women as well as personalised massage. Nubia has also worked with a Premier League footballer.
Nubia’s methodology combines deep pressure and the use of soft tissue techniques, such as Muscle Energy Technique and Soft Tissue Release, to release tight muscles and relieve pain. Believing in a ‘less is more’ philosophy, Nubia’s technique allows for a slow, deep and intuitive experience, which gives her time to identify the body’s issues and feel the points that need more work. Nubia likes to adopt a holistic approach, always exploring the main reasons that are contributing to and/or causing her client’s pain and muscle tightness: for example; posture, stress levels, quality of life and emotional factors. Nubia tailors her treatments according to her client’s needs. In addition to her treatment, Nubia advises her clients on postural changes, stress management and exercise, which is designed to help improve their overall health and wellbeing.
Nubia also performs Pregnancy Massage, Swedish Massage, Hot Stones, Lymphatic/Cellulite Massage and Aromatherapy. Recently, Nubia completed her Remedial Sports Massage course at the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM). Her next goal is to start a degree in Osteopathy.

What is Biomagnetism?
Biomagnetism is a revolutionary, scientific and therapeutic approach to facilitate detoxification and elimination of pathogens, toxins, and stress in the body.
It empowers your body to overcome health obstacles with the use of magnets, by focusing on eliminating the root causes of illness, which allows you to live in an optimal state of health.
The first Biomagnetic pair was discovered in 1988 by Medical doctor Isaac Goiz. He has been able to identify more than 350 Biomagnetic pairs to treat disease, syndromes, glandular dysfunctions and illnesses in the body. The application of specific medium intensity magnets on two different points on the body which are energetically connected, enables the imbalance in the cellular environment to be corrected.
When there is regulation of electrical current in the body and adequate pH balance is achieved, pathogens are weakened, allowing the immune system to take care of them, and the body is able to heal itself.
In honor of his discovery, the Oxford International University in England presented Dr. Isaac Goiz with the Doctorate of Philosophy in Bio-energetic Medicine in 1999.
Dr Goiz has successfully treated thousands of patients using Biomagnetism, and has trained medical doctors and health practitioners from all around the world.
Biomagnetism’s healing capabilities are thought to:
- stimulate and improve immune system function
- eliminate pathogens
- improve circulation
- oxygenate the body
- increase detoxification
- lower inflammation
- rehabilitate different functions of the body
- reduce clinical symptoms
- re-establish equilibrium and overall health and wellbeing
As well as supporting conventional treatments and addressing pre-existing conditions, it is also for healthy people who understand that Biomagnetism’s objective is overall balance and the prevention of illness, leading to a richer and happier life.
Unlike traditional medicine which targets the symptoms or degenerative signs of illness, Biomagnetism targets pathogens which are part of the illness process, to get to the root of the problem. This means that disease and dysfunction in the body can be prevented and eliminated before it becomes symptomatic. Prevention is always better than cure.
Biomagnetism is a safe, non-invasive method for adults and children alike and does not produce any side effects. The magnets that are used are not connected to any electrical machine and it is compatible with all traditional and alternative healing practices.
You may have heard of magnet therapy but that is different. In magnet therapy one low intensity magnet is used for longer periods of time typically to elevate pain or to reduce inflammation.
Biomagnetism is a comprehensive therapy using pairs of magnets to identify and eliminate imbalance in order to eliminate pathogens (viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites) toxins and stress from the body.
