I've always been familiar with Wimbledon, I grew up in Putney which is down the road but since moving here with Steve last year I've been making a big effort to get out and explore my local businesses. It's easy to dismiss your local neighbourhood in exchange for the glamour of the big city centre. I'm definitely guilty of overlooking what's on my doorstop for a new, sparkly place in Soho but I'm trying to put my preconceptions aside and spend more time in SW19.
When I was invited to try a treatment at the newly refurbished Neal's Yard Remedies in Wimbledon Village I jumped at the chance. Not only because more poor, overstressed body was crying out for some TLC but also because I had no idea that Neal's Yard Remedies even offered spa treatments.
After speaking with my amazing therapist Colette she decided that the best thing for me to have was an hour long, full body massage. The hour was a dream, Colette used hot oil and figure of eight type strokes to massage my tired body. The whole process was extremely relaxing and I came away feeling lighter, stress free and calm.
It's not often I treat myself to these sort of procedures but they really do make a difference to my overall well-being. Neal's Yard Remedies in Wimbledon offer an impressive range of holistic therapies from Indian head massages to acupuncture so I'll definitely be back again next time I need some TLC.
