Warm and inviting atmosphere, lovely place to unwind
Quite simply, I love this place! Just walking into the building makes me feel more calm and grounded - and that's before an amazing treatment from Shona. She knows exactly what I need without me even needing to tell her. More...
This lady’s treatments are amazing she makes you feel like you are walking on air. Would recommend visiting Balanced Lifestyle without hesitation.
I don't know what I'd do without Shona and her healing hands.
I have regular massages at Balanced Lifestyle and every time I leave I feel relaxed and rejuvenated.
Can't recommend highly enough. Xx

Great place .work around you to fit you in, great staff and make you feel welcome from the first step in the door �
Have been at Balanced Lifestyle for 3+ years now. Once a month Shona finds the 'niggles' and sorts them all out. She is just amazing! Definitely recommend Shona and her team. But, over and above that, Balanced Lifestyle has started Pilates classes and never having been at Pilates before I decided to give it a try. Am now hooked with Nicola in charge! I would suggest you need to give everything a try. More...
Just back from 2hrs of treatment from Shona, microdermabrasion and intense muscle release massage. Can honestly say I’ve never had such a great massage, lots of pressure but in the best way, actually feel so much more relaxed and my face is glowing after the facial too. Highly recommend � x
Love the pilates classes - I have attended Thursday evening with Steph and enjoy a new challenge every week learning different techniques in a friendly relaxed environment. When I can’t make Thursday I head for the Friday class with Anna - somehow she manages a challenging yet relaxing class getting you stretched off chilled out and ready for the weekend! Both instructors will put you at ease, take care of you as an individual and teach with a caring attitude. More...
Amazing intensive muscle massage from Shona today. Felt she really knew what she was doing and already feeling the benefits from just one treatment. Looking forward to returning for another session. More...
If you want to have a really good experience; one that sorts out all your body's aches and pains and can at times make you feel so relaxed that you are in danger of dozing off. If what I have said appeals to you then you cannot do better than visit Shona McDiarmid at Balanced Lifestyle. She is amazing and truly professional and I just want to thank Shona so much for the help that she has been. I've been to a number of massage professionals over the years but Shona is the best.
Beautiful calm surroundings, friendly staff and a spacious, elegant treatment room. I love my regular massage from Shona, she works wonders on my aches and pains and I come out feeling on cloud 9. I really recommend Balanced Lifestyle, it's been a real gem of a find for me. More...
A massage and complementary therapy salon in a Golf club? Well whilst it might sound slightly unconventional but it most definately works!! Set in lovely grounds the old clubhouse is a tranquil and lovely building and there's plenty of free parking. As you climb the open staircase and enter the salon you immediately begin to unwind... Entering a tastefully decorated haven of scented tranquility with nice mood lighting, scented candles and soothing music sets the scene perfectly! Each session starts with a chat with Shona to ensure she's aware of any particular wishes or ailments and also what to expect - oh and how deep a massage you want!On my most recent visit I went in looking like a bent over old woman (glamourous granny perhaps ) after puting my back out so was hoping for miracles!! I am a no pain no gain type of massage girl and wow she definately knows how to work a deep tissue massage, working out my knots and aches in a way which was still so relaxing! Needless to say I didnt just walk out with a straight pain free back - I pretty much floated out after some energising reiki to finish it off! Prices start at £45 for an hours deep tissue , swedishor indian head massage. She also does hot stone, Moroccan oil massage, Reiki and transformational therapies. I cant recommend this highly enough... Whether like me your body is in need of repair or whether you just want a little pampering this is just the tonic!! More...
