That was the first time I had massage in my own house and quite happy with the experience. The massage was strong as I like and Jila was very attentive asking several times if the pressure is OK. I also got free advice on what I could do with my diet to improve my well being :) I wasn't very well prepared though to the fact that Thai massage will be done on the floor. For anyone booking it I would advise: 1) make your room warm enough (as all the cold air is concentrating at the bottom); 2) get enough layers between yourself and the floor so that you feel comfortable; 3) set lights down and find some relaxing music (Jila can advise some sites / you-tube channels on-line).
I booked massage for the rush hour time in the tube and so Jila was slightly late (15 or 20 mins) due to the traffic, which didn't bother me too much. But Jila was very kind to offer me extra massage time.
Will be definitely coming back :)
That was my second visit to Nilema and I had another wonderful massage. Maybe, I could ask it to be a little bit stronger. But all in all I was happy with this one.
It was quite nice massage, but I would probably like to have it stronger. I had a feeling that my muscles were not worked well enough as compared to some previous massages I had. But the place was very comfortable and pleasant to have a treatment in it and the masseuse was very nice, polite and attentive, so all in all it was a pleasant experience. I will go back for another one, but this time will ask for a stronger one :)
Had an amazing machine pedicure in B&Ks new location. It was professionally done with a lot of attention to some special "needs" my feet required at that time. Will be coming back.
The only slight con was that the new location is quite far from the tube station (st John's Wood is the closest)
This was second time I went to Opulence Spa at Soho Gyms Farringdon for Thai massage and actually was a bit disappointed. I wouldn't call it Thai massage, rather relatively strong usual massage (can't even call it deep tissue one - it wasn't strong enough). You probably need to book / go for a specific masseuse to have a proper one here. First time I had Grace (I think, that was her name) and she was great, did a very strong massage. Second time it was a different person whom I wouldn't go to second time, even though she was nice and attentive.
Amazing massage! Was quite strong and masseuse worked really well on those most painful areas. I'll be definitely going back.
This was actually one of the most disappointing experiences I've had before. The pedicure itself was average, but it took longer than usual to complete. I also booked manicure after pedicure: I might be wrong, but it looks like the specialist was a trainee, so I had to confirm if I'm happy with the shape of every nail and there were several corrections we had to make as we went shaping. At some point I could feel that the treatment was coming to an end, however my cuticles were not cut by that time, so I asked to cut them - the specialist swapped with a colleague, more experienced I believe. Still cuticles were cut in quite untidy way - I usually cut them myself better.
So I ended up being quite upset and 1.5 hour late for a meeting I supposed to had after the manicure-pedicure. I was very pleased however with the understanding of the manager of the salon: I suggested to pay half of the price of the manicure as I felt the job was not done properly and she agreed in a very polite and respectful way. And all the staff nevertheless was very attentive and warm.
Very mice strong massage. I came with my sister and the masseuses were very attentive and re-arranged the room to accommodate two people very quickly. Pleasant experience.
It was amazing. They opened a couple of new rooms on the ground floor of the same building which are very cosy.
Angela did amazing job, was very attentive and professional. I spent very nice and relaxing time while having my pedicure done. If you're booking manicure and pedicure together I would advise having pedicure first so that you have time for your nail varnish to dry properly, in the meantime your manicure can be done.
