"This intricate and tiny adjustment is done with such care and respect for each individual that it is always with huge wonderment (as much myself as for participant!) that improvements are noticed in as little as one session."

I would spend 75+ mins (PB) on hands and knees making certain it was spotless. Which was great, necessary, time-consuming and physical (the studio is a whole lot larger with a cloth and bucket in hand!)
Every single day offers one, if not more, possibilities to learn. What is so rewarding for me is that I get to pass that learning along, to share information, impart knowledge and more often than not, see someone shine in front of my eyes!
I have found a pleasurable quietness and it is my mission to share it with as many clients as I can.
"you are the Jo Malone of massage"..."I wish I had your job"..."a beautiful space created by a beautiful person"..."amazing hands"
"Some may think this to be indulgent, others might say irresponsible. But for those who have experienced a connection with themselves...you will understand the happy anticipation I am experiencing today."
"...how incredible acupuncture could be when given by a therapist who is a pure channel for this ancient healing energy, who tells stories passed down from early Chinese practitioners, and who literally "comes alive" when giving a treatment."

This is the season of newness, of growth and emergence. Time to come out of hiding and shed layers, not just fabrics but stored fats that have been keeping our bodies warm throughout the cold Winter.
...with musical offerings from Haydn and Mozart to Giles Peterson and Eryka Badhu to @MrSuicideSheep, @relaxdaily, @NewbieNerdz and #Brighton's finest @FatboySlim, it is fair to say there is something for everyone.
What followed next was confusing, back-breaking, rewarding, tiring, repetitive, dirty, liberating, educational, scary and arduous...
#Project50 has delivered exactly what was needed....good, clean images that really represent the tranquility, space, functionality and essence of the studio
"I could have done without being sent from online pillar to digital post ... but in hindsight I have a system that performs to my exacting standards, looks the way I want it to and has already gleaned some "top-notch digital" nods"
Just what #Brighton needs....another fitness space!
It did cross my mind (time and time again) that the locality is saturated with health clubs, gyms, studios and centres all concerned with "your health and well-being" and why I should enter into this competitive landscape if all I would be offering is the same.
Answer; because bend.fit.mend isn't offering the same.
My intention was to create an environment that flexes and moulds to provide a comfortable, clean, intimate space that appeals to all types of people. In addition, to create a "menu" that affords choice.
In putting together the space, I have thought about other establishments, what appeals to me and what puts me off returning, however small the detail. In doing so bend.fit.mend ticks so many of my boxes that I am optimistic that it will get your "nod" too.
In fact, it is so comfortable that I have very nearly just fallen asleep on the foam floor, it is sanitary from the moment you enter the room (again, more foam - antibac hand cleanser) and is exceptionally quiet even though it is literally a stone's throw from Brighton station and bustling Queen's Road. Throw in soft lighting, fluffy towels and delicate aroma and the scene is set.
The most exciting thing of all is that every person who has visited so far, be it client, friend, media person, delivery chap and / or other has said very much the same... "what a great space!"
It has been quite a journey to get to here and rather than tell you of the heartaches, bloody fingers, aching back and (more than) occasional cussing now, I shall embellish those moments as and when a happy client comments on the individual parts that go to make up a rather sumptuous whole.
