*Popular days/hours (peak hours are often late afternoons and weekends, especially Saturdays, half terms etc.) sell out very quickly therefore we cannot guarantee availability on the day or if you leave it too late to pre-book.
It is easiest for us to accommodate you during off-peak hours, which are typically in the mornings and mid-week.
Can I choose a therapist?
If you have a preferred therapist please feel free to request that person.
Can I ask the therapist to adapt the treatment?
All aspects of a treatment can usually be modified to your taste: amount of light, kind of music (if any), room temperature and whether or not you choose to have a conversation or enjoy the treatment in silence. If you want the therapist to massage harder or be gentler, let them know. Also, feel free to ask questions. Your therapist will appreciate knowing your thoughts and clarifying any issues you may have.
Do I at any point have to remove all of my clothes in front of anyone?
It’s never required that you are unclothed in front of anyone. Our therapists will leave the treatment room while you get under the sheet on the massage bed. Therapists will keep you covered at all times except for the area of the body they are massaging. They will also leave the treatment room before you get up from the treatment bed.
Should I eat before a treatment?
Try not to eat a heavy meal for at least an hour before a treatment and avoid the consumption of alcohol on the day of a treatment. Drink plenty of water before and after.

Medical conditions & allergies
Should you or your guest/party have any medical conditions, which may prevent you from having treatments, we advise you to speak to your GP and bring a Doctor’s note with you.
If you are pregnant we will not perform a Full Body Massage or Exfoliation at any stage of your pregnancy. If your spa day includes a Full Body Massage we will do our best to give you a suitable alternative.
Whilst pregnant you cannot use the sauna, Jacuzzi and similar heated leisure facilities because of the risks of overheating, dehydration and fainting. When you use a sauna, spa pool, hot tub or steam room, your body cannot lose heat effectively by sweating. Your body’s core temperature therefore rises. It is possible that a significant rise in your core temperature may affect your unborn baby’s development.
If you are currently undergoing any form of treatment for cancer then a doctor’s note must be produced prior to treatment. If the doctor is happy for you to receive treatment then his/her note should be attached to the therapist consultation form and then the relevant treatment can be carried out.
If you have diabetes you only require a doctor’s note for treatments if the condition is not under control by either diet or insulin.
If you have Epilepsy and have had a seizure within the last 18 months we would require a doctor’s note to proceed with treatments, if your last seizure was over 18 months ago there are no contraindications to the type of treatments you can receive but we would not use essential oils in treatments.
High Blood Pressure
If you suffer from high blood pressure we cannot perform abdominal massage, if your high blood pressure is controlled by medication we can proceed without a doctor’s note, if not we require a doctor’s note to perform the treatment.
If you have asthma you can enjoy all of our treatments without a doctor’s note. If required please ensure you carry your inhaler on your spa day.
If you have MS we cannot massage during the acute or flare-up stage but can proceed with massage between flares or stages with a doctor’s note.
Greenwoods Hotel and Spa etiquette
When using the pool and fitness suite appropriate clothing and footwear must be worn.
In the pool area placing towels and robes on sun loungers to reserve them is not permitted.
In the pool area please shower before using and between facilities.
Please remember to return bath robes and towels to Spa Reception before leaving. If you fail to return your robes you will be charged £25 per robe.
All our guests are here to relax so we kindly ask our guests to respect and not to disturb others. We kindly request that voice levels are kept to a minimum to preserve the sense of tranquillity.
At all times please be respectful to Greenwoods Hotel and Spa staff and ask for help if needed. Disrespectful behaviour will not be tolerated.
Due to legislation introduced in 2007, Greenwoods Hotel and Spa operates a no smoking policy in all areas of the hotel, spa and grounds with the exception of a smoking area. Please ask for the location of this at Main Reception.
Please ensure you abide by Greenwoods Hotel and Spa rules during your visit.
