Just occasionally, there's a contact in my well-researched little black book that I'm loathe to pass on.
Right now, it's a massage therapist, so extraordinary, that the thought of sharing her name, gets my selfish gene whirring into action. But for fear of seeming Gollum-like here goes…my precioussssss; she's called Therese Synnott at A Touch of Magic. Believe me, if you want the most excellent massage, Therese is your woman . As well
as home treatments, she works from select spas and clinics across London and has a full menu of therapies including Deep Tissue, Hot Stone and Manual Lymphatic Drainage. And on top of all that, Synnott is a Reiki master and often throws in amazing energy healing during a massage, leaving you a bit bemused as to why you feel so calm and ok with the world.
If you've ever had a bad massage you'll know how excruciating it can be; when the therapist hands are too soft, too hard or it just feels like they'd rather be in the pub or anywhere, than working your back. But not with Synnott. Therese really cares about her clients. And her hands can read a body like Braille.
Try her and you'll get it. But maybe just don't pass her name on.

Our intrepid business traveler finds that good haircuts and manicures are possible to find in the city of London - if you know where to look.
The most treasured person I found in London was Therese Synnott, massage goddess extraordinaire. She is other-worldly and spiritual perfection. When the Black Eyed Peas come to London, this is who they call. You should too. At your home or in select spas.

“Hidden Gems are always a delight to uncover, especially when they are a pampering treatment like no other. I have reviewed many massages since becoming a journalist and in all that time, I can safely say that none has been as good as Therese Synnott . Being a knotted and stressed individual, I found nothing would loosed my muscles and indeed cure me of mild discomfort when trying to sleep. Therese however found the spots and kneaded away until the knots began to dissipate. With a courteous nature (not at all offended if you ask the pressure to be lessened) Therese applied the deep tissue massage with finesse, her arms and hands feeling like a machine, with such swift movements it was unbelievable to think her diminutive frame was creating this kind of sensation. Hot Stones and Reiki included made the whole experience a joy to receive on an exceptionally cold, wintry day”.

Wonderful masseuse in your house"
Therese Synnott is an at-home masseuse you'll thank me for!
A Reiki Master, Level 4 diploma in Holistic Massage, Therese is able to hone her expertise on whatever needs you require at the moment. I call on her at least 4xs per year and go right to bed after her visit for the full effect. There aren't many massages I feel the loosening effect of days later like I do with hers. Insider Andrew Zlot says: " Healing hands is an understatement here. Therese is calming and creates a cocoon of sorts in your home—candles, great smelling oils, soothing music..." Book 90 minutes or take 2 hours for a truly fabulous deep tissue relaxing massage.
