Whether you’re looking for a solitary retreat, a day with friends or a romantic escape with your man, Hands On Retreat has it all. Nestled in greenery alongside the Craighall Brook, it offers the perfect location to escape daily stresses. Leaving our new baby with his grandparents, my husband and I enjoyed a much-needed three-hour spa retreat, which offered us the chance to immerse ourselves in being pampered. Sitting on the deck overlooking the brook, the peaceful sounds of flowing streams and soothing music added to the indulgence of our neck, shoulder, hand and feet massages.

Later we were escorted to a private garden studio where we were treated to full body hot stone massages which left us feeling relaxed but invigorated. To complete the experience, we enjoyed delicious freshly baked muffins, tea and coffee at the onsite coffee shop. Professional therapists and a commitment to quality completed the experience.

Business background
Offering day packages as well as romantic weekend getaways, Hands On Retreat is an addition to mobile massage company Hands On Treatment. The award-winning retreat is an extension of founder, Martina Laurie’s commitment to train and empower therapists whilst offering clients the chance to unwind with expert massages.

“Ten years ago when we started, there weren’t a lot of places to spend the day getting treatments and now there are hundreds of day spas operating all over,” says Laurie. “We’re very pleased that there’s competition because this proves that there’s a market for your product or service. Competition is good, it keeps you on your toes and helps with promoting new services and products.”

With a mobile massage division focused on the corporate market, Hands On Retreat is the perfect place to spoil your employees. The Retreat is currently offering packages for truly relaxing year-end functions that focus on pampering and wellness. For more information on this and other specials click here.
