I have been taking my Mother to Holly for several years now, and have always been impressed with her kindness and compassion - she treats my elderly Mother with such loving care and makes her feel so very special every time. I find the location so peaceful, that I often just sit outside during Mom's treatments, enjoying the serenity of the area and, of course, all the happy birds flitting about the many feeders. Recently, Mom gave me a gift of 2 hours with Holly - anything I wanted. The hardest part was choosing from all the services offered. After much deliberation, I chose a 1 hour massage, and a 1 hour Reflexology Treatment. Wow! The massage was wonderful and, shall we say, just what the doctor ordered. I was putty in Holly's hands. The biggest surprise was the Reflexology Treatment (I picked it because I had never had professional reflexology done before and wanted to try it). I had no idea it would feel so good. I left feeling completely rejuvenated, and that night, slept like a baby - the first decent sleep in over a month. Holly has a definite gift - she likes making people feel wonderful, and does it so well. Kudos!!!!!!!
Set out for a drive up County Road 23 (Lyle Street), relishing in the beauty of the verdant farms, the rolling hills, the large pond you will pass. You begin to relax, just from the pastoral setting and the beautiful drive. Turn onto Eddystone Road, a pretty, winding road that will lead you to further relaxation. You arrive at the delightful house by the side of the road with its own studio towards the back. When you open the door, you are greeted by a welcoming, happy smile—a great big smile that welcomes you warmly! Holly is very pleased to see you and makes you feel immediately at home. She offers tea and cookies and then begins your treatment—a gentle, thoughtful, relaxing treatment, either quiet, if that’s your preference, or full of laughter and chatter, if you are comfortable with that. While you’re on her treatment “chair,” you can see how she’s decorated the room to be interesting and comforting. And the birds outside the window always provide wonderful entertainment! If this is your first treatment, you will recognize the beginning of a friendship. If you have come back or you come regularly, you’ll be aware of a growing friendship. Bring along your significant other—he or she is always welcome, gets to have tea and cookies too, and shares in the conversation—and the treatment too, if you like! Do yourself a favour, be good to yourself, and let Holly at Polished be good to you. Relax!
I recently experienced a Reflexology session with Holly. When I arrived at her tranquil setting and made my way to her quaint guest house where her Polished Spa is located, I was immediately comfortable and felt very much at ease. The sensation I experienced during my one hour session exceeded my expectations. Holly has a gentle manner and very effective approach to how she conducted our session. We started with a warm, relaxing foot bath followed by a hot cup of tea while I settled comfortably on the treatment table. With the soft music playing in the background Holly begins her Reflexology sequence.. one foot at a time. From start to finish I was able to "walk" with her as she moved through each area of the body -- surprisingly -- all of your "body parts" are neatly contained at the bottom of each of your feet !! I was amazed at how certain contact positions were so directly related to how I felt ! For example - the stiffness in one of my shoulders and my neck were clearly identified during the procedure ! .. I even felt relief from Holly gently working certain areas. Once the session was complete, I walked away feeling the same sensation that I experience when I have had a one hour full body massage -- I felt "chilled" and wanted to go home and have a nice hot Epsom salts bath :) I have had Reflexology in the past and felt that it was "ok".. but this time -- with Holly -- it felt amazing !! I would recommend going to Holly for Reflexology -- however -- I would also say that you should choose a day when you don't have to go to work following the session -- perhaps at the end of your day would be better timing -- that way you can fully relax once you arrive back home. I look forward to my next Reflexology session -- thanks Holly !! :)
I recently had the pleasure of spending a day at Polished with some of my girlfriends getting pampered. Holly transformed my nasty winter boot feet into pretty flip flop feet in one luxurious hour. The atmosphere of the spa cottage is so inviting and Holly is so much fun! I can't wait to go back for my Shellac manicure:) Do yourself a favour and book some pampering at Polished.

Just back from my second visit to Polished Spa and oh my! the experience was once again luxurious, completely personal, and relaxing. The scenery and view from the spa is so amazing. I never thought this type of experience could be offered without the high end spa price tag - such great value! It is great to go on your own or with a small group (2-4 people). I certainly know where I will be taking my mom for Mother's Day - win-win!
