Our Therapists



Yarek has been interested and passionate about holistic approach to health since his childhood. He grew up with intimate contact with nature in the beautiful countryside in central Poland. He believes that these early influential years provided him with an incredibly rich experience that resulted in his later quests.

Yarek’s entire life is a journey and an exploration of human purpose, interconnectedness and holistic awareness. Yarek learned that our health can only be viewed from the holistic perspective. Our body, mind and spirit are one and additionally we are all connected to our environment. Thus, while treating someone the practitioner should take into consideration all the above aspects. Massage affects our health positively but also heals us on deeper level through the process of being accepted and cared for. In that way, the physical and emotional space that has been created allows us to unwind and let go of any emotional and mental blocks.

Yarek is a fully insured and professionally trained massage therapist to the internationally certified level. He uses a number of techniques while performing Swedish, Advanced Deep Tissue, and Indian Head Massage. Each session is individually tailored to the needs of a client and further adjusted as the process of healing takes place.


Ola strongly believes in the healing potential of massage therapy; in particular, its ability to reduce recovery time, prevent injuries and maximize performance. She spent her childhood, teens and part of her adulthood as a volleyball player. The first serious injury, just before important competition and a very positive body response to rehabilitation – that was the beginning of her adventure...

Ola holds a university degree in Physiotherapy, and also is fully qualified in Sport and Remedial Massage Therapy. She is also experienced in Lymphatic Drainage, Swedish and Advance Deep Tissue Massage, Kinesiology, and Reflexology. Ola’s mission is to support her clients in achieving a life balance through personal wellness. She works from the holistic perspective, always remembering about the mind/body connection. She mindfully focuses on injury, rehabilitation and prevention, always with a great compassion.

Ola identifies herself with Hippocrates’s words – it’s always better to prevent than treat. She also strongly believes that movement can replace medication, however there is no medication that can replace the movement. Ola works with her clients to find success in movement and self-care, and facilitates an enriching journey of becoming more conscious, functional, and healthy in their body and mind.


Ja Young first trained and practiced as a massage therapist in Australia where she was living for many years. She had also worked in London in a Chinese medicine clinic before moving to Edinburgh.

Ja Young grew up in South Korea, where massage therapy is highly regarded and valued. In Korea a good health is seen as a proper balance of Um-Yang (like Chinese Yin-Yang), good and balanced energy flow in the body. Ja Young views the mind and body as interdependent of one another, therefore perceives emotions and thought processes as strongly related to the body physical health.

Because of her holistic view to human health, Ja Young trained in Swedish Massage, Soft Relaxing Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Reflexology, Pressure Points Massage, Face and Head Massage, and Reiki.

In her free time, Ja Young enjoys travelling and art.

Testimonials

"I received an advanced deep tissue massage from the therapist (Yarek) and am very pleased with the outcome. My shoulders were all knotted and tense from weeks of guitar playing and carrying heavy instruments during the festival. Also I had moved house in June and never treated the problem since then!

Thank you very much for the professional way you handled my treatment, from the entry and basic form-filling, to the soft music and pleasing ambience, to eventually winding down with a drink of water before I left.

I accept the recommendations from the therapist that I will have an ongoing problem with the shoulder area (considering I carry all my tension there) and will definitely return for follow-up maintenance treatment.

Very affordable.

Very professional.

Thank you very much" - Zita


"The guy that does the massages, Jarek, is a brilliant masseur. I've been taking deals in a lot of places to try and find a good person and I've finally found the place to go!

The shop is located at Portland Place, very close to Ocean Terminal and right next to the 22 so handy for bus travellers like myself. The place has a comfy couch to sit on while you wait for your appointment, and Jarek makes you feel very at home!

I have no idea what kind of massage I get but every time I go it's excellent. I think he changes it up to suit my aches and pains, but he can do straight Swedish, sports etc also. What is not to love about that? Definitely recommended on price, value and quality for sure.

Go for the great massages and great banter." - Claire
