I walked in with a very sore back and walked out feeling 100% better. Tau is the best masseuse. The place is clean and convenient with plenty parking.

The perfect way to get rid of aches and pains and to relax in a clean and comfortable environment. While on holiday or after work. September special is a bargain.
