In addition to its large and reassuring reception room, with its big leather sofas, it has a number of specialist treatment rooms over 2 floors (ground and first) including a fully equipped manicure and pedicure room, a sun room with full sunbed, a Saint Tropez Spray tanning room and two treatment rooms whether for holistic treatments or CACI non surgical face lifts, body treatments, plus beauty treatments like waxing, make overs and eyebrow/eyelash tidies, perms and tints.
As well as the wide range of beauty and holistic therapy treatments on offer, Natural Touch also supplies carefully selected specialist products including the extraordinary Jane Iredale skin care make up, the effective anti-ageing skincare range from Environ, and Tisserand aromatherapy formulated products for hands and body.
