Light Therapy Manologist Treatment

Such is the calming ambience of Manuel’s therapy room, you’d never believe you were in a container, tucked under the Elephant and Castle Railway with traffic and trains thundering by. Not to mention the clang and clatter of nearby construction at Elephant Park, next door.
Manuel’s friendly and caring presence put me instantly at ease. His comfortable couch and hand-made oils made me relax totally. Typical of many Londoners, I could feel tension in my shoulders and neck, which Manuel treated with massage and Shiatsu. It’s certainly a vigorous treatment but extremely effective. He repeated this procedure on my hands and feet and I can only describe it as my body being activated! Soon my skin was tingling. He exfoliated my face, and replenished it with his own moisturiser (containing SPF, naturally). I regulated my breathing under Manuel’s instructions and soon found myself in an almost meditative state, familiar to any yoga practitioner. This really helped me to ‘sink’ into the treatment and get the best from it. At one point, Manuel put protective glasses on me and shone a healing light on my face.
All in all, it was delightful, inspiring a euphoria that reminded me of how I felt after natural childbirth thirty years ago!
Manuel also sells excellent fruit juices and his own range of oils and moisturisers, all of which I can heartily recommend.
Prices for treatments start at £35.
