Thank you so much, Carol, for the most wonderful reflexology session. I now feel like I’m floating on a cloud! I’m so grateful and would love to come back for more sessions soon.

Carole did a great job on reflexology for me. Plus I spent some time in her hot tub which helped me relax even more. Would recommend that you visit Carole if you have any aches and pain in your body and/or any worries/tension and you need to relax. Facilities are great and you will be very well looked after by lovely Carole.

From the moment Carole welcomes you to the time you leave, it is as if you are the most important person she knows. The treatments can be tailored to suit and never fail to lift the soul nor revive the body. Magical and we are so lucky to have her live near.

A beautiful experience
From the beautiful greeting, to the beautiful surroundings, all I can keep saying is what a beautiful experience it was. A surprising gem tucked in Hampton, this place is designed to cater to everyone’s needs. Men, do not be put off thinking you will receive a light massage. Carole has the knowledge and strength to deliver a deep, yet relaxing deep tissue massage to get rid of those tensions built up in the neck and shoulders. Depending on your needs, the hot tub is a great finish to the massage and the secluded environment adds the finishing touch. You feel comfortable and safe from the time you arrive to departure. Can’t recommend enough as a treat to yourself!

I absolutely adore Carole’s treatments. She’s helped to soften and enliven my body when it felt knotted with anxiety. A warm, beautiful treatment room, a gorgeous hot tub, a twinkly garden and an incredibly caring woman with healing hands. Blissful! I’m very grateful to have discovered her!

A wonderful experience… absolutely magical
At the age of 48 this was my first ever massage. Carole was an excellent choice. Clearly explaining the process and making me feel so at ease. I opted for the upper body massage and you could feel all the tension just lifting away! It was a truly WONDERFUL experience! Thank you Carole… you have wonderful healing hands!! xxxx

Carole is such a wonderful therapist, so warm and friendly! I have been to her for pregnancy massage and regular treatments, the environment she creates is so welcoming and soothing it would be impossible not to relax. Looking forward to my next appointment!

Indian head experience
I’ve just had a lovely treatment in a tranquil and calming environment. I have been experiencing sinus problems and tension in my neck and after my treatment with Carole I felt as though my head was floating above my shoulders! I will definitely be coming back and I have already spoken to a friend and recommended Carole’s treatments to her.

I am a man of mature years and have been feeling the effects of life mainly in my joints and in tight muscles, you’ll have heard the deep sigh and or groan as one of our ilk gets up from a chair. Had a general holistic massage from Carole and felt wonderful, then at her suggestion had a Thai Yoga massage that left me feeling transformed. Hard work, especially for her, but I stretched muscles I didn’t know I had. Feeling taller,lighter and much much better. Booked another next week, this is a work in progress. Thoroughly recommend Carole and the Riverside rooms.

Thai Yoga Phenomenon!!!
I have been having treatments with Carole on and off for a couple of years now and LOVE her energy and authenticity. I was excited to try something new in Thai Yoga Massage and at the end of a most magnificent, bizarre and eye opening two hours I can honestly say I felt phenomenal. As a fitness instructor I am fairly flexible but muscles can over tighten – I felt lighter and more open and relaxed than I think I ever have before. As an all over rejuvenation I would highly recommend this Massage and I would trust few people other than Carole to carry it out so carefully and considerately. I can’t wait for my next treatment!

Baby massage from a student Midwife’s perspective
Carole is amazing! She is very welcoming , open and understanding to the wants and needs of mother and baby. Even from just observing, I felt incredibly relaxed after each session. The classes are a great way to bond with baby through the power of touch, while meeting other mothers in the area. She provides a valuable insight into minor ailments of baby and massage techniques that can help relieve them. I came to observe baby massage classes as part of my transition period of my Midwifery training , and was amazed at this beautiful bonding experience for mum and baby. I learned a lot about alternative medicines / therapies, massage and interpereting baby’s different cries. I will certainly be using some of these techniques in my training. Would definitly recommend

A wonderful, peaceful and magical find
Visiting Carole at the Riverside Rooms is a wonderful experience. She has a magic touch and all your worries will slip away. I have used the hot tub in Summer and in February and it was amazing. The Garden is so tranquil and beautiful, you won’t want to leave.

I have to say, I have visited lots of Health Spas over the years and had many treatments. This was by far the best massage and reflexology treatments I’ve ever had. The set up is fantastic. Carole puts you at your ease straight away. The log cabin is comfortable and cosy. There’s a lovely selection of fresh fruit and herbal teas and you even get a little snack after your treatment. I will definitely be back again! This was better than any of the fancy hotel spas I’ve paid fortunes to and I feel like a new woman!

Carol is incredible she does the best deep tissue hot and cold stone massage which I have been having regularly for nearly a year. Today I discovered Thai Massage OMG this is incredible. Carol is amazingly talented and has an incredible knack for finding pressure points and getting rid of stress. I cannot recommend her enough she is a lovely person with the kindest heart.

A weekly treat for baby and me!
I completed a baby massage course with Carole and every week was a real treat for my son and me! Carole has created a little haven and we felt instantly relaxed and welcome every time we arrived. She was always brilliant with the babies and taught us some valuable techniques which I regularly use to calm and relax my son. I highly recommend the course to anyone looking to share some special time with their little one!

A magical experience!
I have had my fair share of body aches and problems due to several accidents throughout the years. This meant that I had to undergo various forms of therapy, physiotherapy, various types of massage, and alternative medicine. I HAVE NEVER FELT AS GOOD AS I HAVE FELT AFTER CAROL’s reflexology session. Even at the end of my first treatment, I felt I was feeling lot better, not only physically but also spiritually. A lot of weight had been lifted off my shoulders, back and all the pain I had, disappeared. She has magical hands and energy. IT is a MUST GO place whenever you feel tired, exhausted or just feel you should look after yourself

So relaxing, I didn’t want to leave!
Spent a relaxing morning with my husband at the Riverside Rooms where we were very well looked after by Carole who provided delicious refreshments and calming music in her beautiful garden. Enjoyed a soak in the hot tub and an amazing massage. I didn’t want to leave and hope to be back soon! Such a great way to escape the stresses of everyday life.

Carole’s treatments are blissful and effective.
Had a reflexology treatment with Carole. My sinuses had been blocked and my chest had been wheezy. A couple of days after the treatment I noticed that my sinuses were clear and I could smell and taste things properly for the first time in ages also the wheeziness in my chest had gone and I could breathe more freely and deeply. The treatment was blissful and Carole is amazing.

Welcoming and friendly
My daughter always suffered with excess ear wax and after having Hopi ear treatment from Carol her words afterwards were ‘Mami my ear are feeling much cleaner’. My daughter has felt very comfortable during the treatment and would highly recommend Carol and Hopi ear therapy.

La Stone Therapy
Just had the La Stone Therapy and can only describe my experience as heavenly. From the moment I stepped into Carole’s charming garden I felt peaceful. It’s so calming. Carole tailored the treatment to my specific needs and requirements. Absolute bliss, and I would highly recommend it.

Leading a highly stressful lifestyle and feeling quite tense I went to see Carole for a massage. Her demeanour, warmth and the amazing location enabled me to feel at ease and relaxed so easily! During the treatment she intuitively knew where I held the most tension and I left feeling a strong sense of calm and relaxation, I can’t wait to book my next treatment!

I’ve always been told I should relax more and in the modern day world it’s increasingly hard to just “wind down” and centre yourself. Just one hour with Carole brought me into a complete state of relaxation and mindfulness.The cold stone therapy was especially good for my sunburnt back. Thoroughly recommended – I would see Carole every week if I could.

I am currently having facial rejuvenation and am seeing fantastic results each week. Carole suggested that I have a before photo taken and then half way through my first session when only half my face had been worked on (see my photo… the right side of my face has been done!)… wow what amazing results I recommend this treatment to everyone who wants to look younger without the use of surgery or creams…. Its just Carole’s hands massaging the muscles, fascia and skin in a specific way to minimise lines and get a healthy blood supply to the skin cell – hence in a 6-week period I will see a visible difference. My boyfriend noticed just after one treatment!

Amazing Spa Experience
I and my fiance booked a spa package with Carol. We started with a hot tube, where we spent around 45 mins each chatting, relaxing and eating fruits. Amazing experience, especially if there’s only 7 degrees outside Then we both had the upper body massage. I mainly work in a sitting position and it released the tension in my lower back. We felt nurtured and taken care of. Carole – thank you for everything. We’ll definitely book another session, when we are in London again.

I live in Chicago but my parents live in Hampton. When I come and visit the very first thing I do after getting off the plane is come and see Carole…. and then I feel human again! Carole has an amazing gift, she makes you feel nurtured and taken care of. Heading back to the UK again in May and will be booking my appointment soon!! Thanks for everything you do Carole – you deserve all the success in the world!

I had a massage with Carol today and it was beautiful, I felt so nurtured and relaxed. I also did a baby massage course with Carol that was fabulous. The technique was beautiful – my baby loved it and the energy in the room for each session was lovely. A great environment for mum & baby. It felt like the massage course was as much for me as it was my baby.
