Gem’s Fitness & Beauty

Vibration plate training is a great way to stay in shape, build muscle tone, fight cellulite and have fun in a friendly relaxed atomosphere. The vibration plate also called the "Miracle" machine has been hailed by many celebrities from around the globe for its body tonight results, it can even ease the effort needed by people suffering from problems such as arthritis, osteoporosis back pain and sports injury, offering the user the benefits of a 1hr work-out in only 20 minutes, without putting stress on your bones and joints.

The Vibration Plate works by producing vibration which the body converts into energy. This stimulus to the muscles then produces a 'stretch flex' reaction, making exercise more productive over a shorter time. For more information about this revolutionary work out system or our free trial offer, why not come along and find out more? We also offer a wide range of beauty treatments.

My sister and I were pleasently surprised as quality of products and treatments were much better than expected for the price. No its not a spa but then it isn't advertised or priced as one. So if you want great treatments at excellent prices I'd say its worth a try and I will visit again.

I often visit salons through wahanda or other discount sites as I love to be pampered but love a bargain too. I usually can't be bothered to review though, but felt compelled this time. I messed up with this booking and turned up an hour late by mistake and didn't realise till I took out my voucher on which I had written the time. But they went out of their way to sort it for us without us being made to feel in any way a nuissance. We saw two therapists both of whom were lovely and very good at the treatments we had. This is not a stuck up place but that suited us as we were made to feel totally relaxed at all times and will definately return as even at full price this place is a bargain worth hunting out. Thankyou Gem's for all your help.

I have visited this great salon a few times after finding it accidently on the internet through wahanda. They are a great local salon. It's a fantastic place which offers a one-stop shop type of service.

The beauty room is lovely and comfortable and very relaxing with music and candles used when I had my relaxing massage and facial (on special offer for a tenner wow). And they offer other services from excercise classes to hairdressing. I find it well worth the visit as you can get good quality treatments all at great prices and in a relaxed, friendly enviroment (they seem to know almost every customer that walks through the door). The therapists are lovely and skilled in the treatments.

It is a little tucked away as its in a shopping square, but, there is plenty of parking at the rear of the shops next to the school and its a great find.

You can really tell the people that work here put their heart and soul into the place. Keep it up.

i am so happy with the service i received , the salon was clean the staff was so friendly got offered a drink as soon as i walked in . i felt so comfortable at all time i was there and very relaxed as i work all week and don't get chance to relax lol . As for the treatment i received it was one of the best massage i have had the therapist was so happy and friendly and asked me exactly what the problem i was having and took time to help me with that i felt so relaxed afterwards. The file and polish was brilliant also loved the purple colour i choose. So overall it was fantastic would recommend for people to visit and will be going back very soon :)

This little gem of a salon offers everything you could need at amazing prices. Definely worth the voucher and I'm happy to return. I was made to feel very welcome.

Wow, where to start? This place is so nice I could spend my days there all day every day if I didn't have to go to work haha. The place is so relaxing and friendly even while waiting you have fun, we were offered a hot drink almost as soon as we walked through the door, we were very early as we were not sure of the exact location we had left home too early. But, we never felt a nuissance at any point it was almost as though we had been invited to a friends for a coffee. As we were both having various treatments (a real girly day) it meant we had the chance for a lovely chat with the ladies and even decided to have extra treatments as we loved the place so much. I live about 3 miles from the salon but I will gladly travel here on a regular basis as it is such a nice place and the treatments are of such high standards at excellent prices, we even had individual lashes for just £7.00! What more could I ask for? Please open one on my road! haha. See you soon Gem and co.

I have visited this salon a few times and have always received the very best of service. Whether they are quiet or rushed off their feet, nothing ever seems too much trouble they seem to make time to be frindly and welcoming with evey customer. I most recently had my eyebrows waxed and some individual lashes by shemara (sorry if I've spelt it wrong) which were both excellent and really made me feel glam and ready to party.

I have also used the wobble plates during a class and on my own and find the classes are well worth booking in for as the staff are real experts in making me work the specific areas most of us women need ie bum and tum in my case.

I treated myself to a brilliant offer they had in store before xmas for a back massage and facial and I saw paige for these treatments. I must say I was very tense before the treatment and by the end I was so relaxed I could have fell asleep.

Whichever of the staff I have seen, they all seem to have the customers interests at heart and they all seem to really enjoy their job which makes each visit to gems a pleasure. Keep it up ladies!

Lovely salon nicely decorated, clean, comfortable and friendly. I saw one lady for my facial and a younger lady for my manicure and pedicure. Both ladies were very good at making me feel comfortable and relaxed and for the very good price of £20 I had a luxury facial and a basic mani and pedi. I was recomended by a friend, who I am very grateful to as at this salon I can afford to treat myself on a regular basis.

I first visited this salon for a massage and facial with two of my friends. The staff were highly accomodating to the fact that we really wanted to book in together and went out of their way to make sure we felt comfortable whilst waiting for each other to have our treatments. They offered us a drink upon arrival and offered more later even, happily, allowing us to get lunch and eat it there (not at all like some stuffy salons I have visited in the past where you are self concious the whole time) and as we enjoyed ourselves so much we decided to indulge in some other treatments whilst there.

They kept us relaxed and well cared for, during the duration of our visit, so we had so much fun, we didn't want to go back to the hustle and bustle of our real lives.

All of the products used are of a very high standard. This salon is staffed by really genuine, down to earth people, they are highly knowledgable and proffesional, while maintaining a freindly, fun and relaxed, enviroment.

I really hope that this establishment gets the credit it deserves and many, many, more people are lucky enough to enjoy a trip to this hidden gem!

Gem's is a small, welcoming and relaxed salon offering excellent value for money power plate fitness, beauty treatments and tanning. We've been visiting Gem's for a few months now, using the power plates 2-3 times per week and I've have also had waxing done. We had used another salon before finding Gems but the big plus for us is that at Gem's, after a few visits you can choose between instructed power plate classes or you can go in and 'do your own thing' if you prefer. There are lots of machines so it is never a problem getting booked in at a time to suit. The girls in the salon are always friendly and welcoming and are happy to offer advice and guidance on the treatments available. A great little salon - a gem of a find!

This salon is a really fab place to go if you want treatments at very low prices that include high quality products and high quality staff.

I had visited on a voucher the first time and have been back twice already as the sunbed is is the best I have used, the treatments were fab and you really feel welcome from the second you walk in the door. It is a lovely place, well kept, comfortable and spacious.

I visited this salon on a fantastic deal for just £10 for a massage, a facial and a go on the vibration machines. I must say I was really saddened to read the previous review as it either must have been for another salon or the person must have ridiculous expectations, as I found the staff the best I have ever come accross as I visit salons regularly, I was very impressed.

I walked in very stressed and weary, but, thanks to these wonderful girls, who really seemed to care, I left feeling completly relaxed and rejeuvenated. The excercise class, was with some of the local customers, who were lovely and seemed to get on very well with gemma and the other girls. It was great fun and really felt like I worked which I didn't expect.

I then had a back massage, which was done by a young girl and again I was pleasently surprised how good she was seeming to have technique well beyond her years. My facial was done by Gemma it was wonderfully relaxing and she was really good at listening to me and made me feel so relaxed we could have been friends for years.

The decorating was fresh and welcoming and the salon was very clean. All in all you can tell these people love there job and will be a real gem (haha) in the beauty salon world.

I'm really not one to complain but my whole experience was really disapointing.
The venue was uninviting, and in need of a coat of paint.
The girl who greeted me was pleasant and friendly and her instruction on the wobble machine was clear and helpful.
The therapy room was seriously lacking in ambience - office style lighting, no music and cold.
The therapist though quite pleasant at the end of the treatment didn't look like she wanted to be there, probably as she was full of a cold and proceeded to sniff, cough and splutter throughout my treatment. Being a therapist myself, the massage technique was poor. To be honest I was looking forward for the whole thing to finish.
If you live in the Kings Norton area then the wobble classes are probably worth a go, but I wouldn't recommend the facials or massage based on my experience.

This small salon was very welcoming . Beauty products used were vg quality and the salon was kept clean and tidy. They also operate an impressive vibrating plate class on a regular basis. Although situated in Kings Norton just across the road is a regular bus service to Birmingham and Solihull and other nearby districts. My visit was most enjoyable and excellent value..

The staff were very friendly and chatty. the salon is in a very rough area and I was a little afraid to leave my car whilst having the treatment. The power plate exercises could have been more challenging. When in the treatment room thee was a lot of noise from the rest of the premisises ie loud music and general chat, a relaxing cd would have been nice to drown this out.
