Queenly massage

Tabitha-Robertson-267x300Worth a pop up the road to Queen’s Park for an addictively deep and reviving massage by Tabitha Robertson. It all seems so quiet up there, 5 minutes away and a peaceful room, warm massage platform and delicious smells. You just pull up outside her house (Robertson organises the online parking in advance) and snuggle under the pre-warmed purple velvet blanket to have all your aches and pains smoothed away. If you like a good firm massage this is it, and you can opt for a facial too, which involves more lovely holistic potions, a couple of hot steamy towels and an ayurvedic (ancient Indian medical system) rose clay mask. The good thing is you can buy pots of the skin potions while you are there. They are concocted in the Cotswolds from ethically-sourced organic ingredients and worth it just for the smells, with the face oil the most popular. A one hour massage costs £70 but best to go for the £85 one and a half hour session which includes a facial. Robertson, who has been massaging for 12 years, also does home visits, but says: “This room is full of peace. That makes a big difference to people, there is no feeling of rush.” I’m hooked. www.tabitharobertson

  • I noticed that beautiful Art nouveau shop so well occupied by Monsoon, empty yesterday. The Dispensary is really sad – I have bought so many nice things there over the years. Surely it is counter productive to the area for the Council to drive established shops away with the huge business rates? How does it work in Marylebone High Street where the Howard de Walden estate encouraged independent shops and made the street a destination shopping street internationally known. Are the business rates less severe in Westminster?
