"As a physiotherapist myself, I have always been so impressed with Polly’s ability to perform a really therapeutic massage that is still so relaxing, a combination that I have previously found very hard to find!! Polly treated me throughout my pregnancy she has excellent positioning, handling and massage technique for during this period of your life and I always felt in very safe hands. I can’t recommend Polly enough, I always leave her sessions feeling rejuvenated with a smile on my face."

"I am a mum who tries to keep fit by through boot camp. The result is constant aching muscles, tight calves and sore feet. I have been a client of Polly McDonald's for about 2 years and she is the kind of person that I think an Remedial Massage Therapist should be– qualified, genuine, friendly, peaceful, intuitive and a good listener. Simply by walking into the room I feel more comfortable. A regular monthly massage has been a great investment in my health - it is strong enough to be therapeutic for my inevitable boot camp injuries but gentle enough to be relaxing. After a treatment with Polly my muscles feel renewed, my mobility improves, I sleep like a baby and am back on track for morning training. If you have ever wanted to have a really good massage I can't recommend Polly highly enough."
"I see Polly regularly for a massage. As a busy mum of three young kids, I don't get much 'me time' but I've come to rely on massage as an essential part of my health and well being. The relaxation part is fantastic, just letting my mind wander for a blissful hour, but the physical benefits are even better. In conjunction with my physiotherapist, Polly has helped my treatment and recovery from various minor injuries, and helps keep my body fit enough to keep up with life, and the running I adore. Polly's knowledge and advice are so helpful, and her calm manner just makes you smile.
It's easy to relax when you're there because her studio is a sanctuary, equipped with everything you need to feel relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed. I love the deep muscle treatment that you get with a hot stone massage.
My favourite part of seeing Polly is the facials. Polly uses an amazing array of natural, soothing, quality products to create a luxurious experience. My husband knows that a gift voucher for a 'goddess package' with Polly is the best present he can give!
I react to lots of over fragranced products, but Polly only uses masks and cleansers that are gentle for sensitive skin. The rich, earthy aroma of her divine French clay face mask is an unmissable treat. The steam treatment is heavenly and you leave with skin feeling fresh and hydrated.
I've recommended Polly to lots of friends and family, as her grounded, joyful essence is contagious, and everyone is guaranteed to leave feeling calm, happy and relaxed."
"Polly is such an amazing Masseuse. She is extremely professional and caring, offering a very relaxing and pampering experience. Highly recommend her."
"As a working mother of two small children with a childhood back injuries, I need a wholistic practitioner who understands my stressful lifestyle and physical constraints!
Polly Mc Donald the owner of Wells St Bodyworks, fills this brief. Her practice not only focuses on my remedial massage needs, but provides me with practical professional advice on stress management through nutrition and exercise."

"I’m from an era when if you were injured on the sports field, you dusted yourself off and played on. My knees, in particular, have paid the price.
Over the past couple of years Polly’s treatments have kept me mobile and largely pain-free. And the big bonus is that the stress just drains away while you’re there on the table.
Polly is a wonderful person who has superlative skills. She provides a truly a relaxing and therapeutic experience in a lovely, peaceful environment. Highly recommended."
