Essential Thyme use the time spent on your appointment when calculating our prices rather than based on therapy type so you can be sure our prices are fair across the range!

Not everyone fits in a box, therefore at Essential Thyme Therapies we believe that everyone is unique and deserves to be. 

Therefore instead of choosing a specific therapy to pay for, you just choose a time slot from 30, 45, or 60 minutes for your massage experience.

After a full consultation with Sandra looking at medical history, areas of your body giving you issues such as pain, etc.  We will decide which areas to concentrate the massage on and Sandra will work you which massage method is best for you on the day, this could mean that you have 3 or 4 different massage techniques into the one session, making your massage experience unique to you on that day.
