While life was crazy with chemotherapy, radiotherapy, sickness, tiredness and hair loss, an hour’s massage was a bit of a lifeline to normality. It was time for me to relax and not have to think about the madness of it all for a while.

Moments or quietness and a bit of pampering helped me through a very tricky time. That was 3 years ago, and I’ve been coming once a month ever since.
