"Book a Rest today and change tomorrow."
A boutique salon offering client focussed, bespoke massage and beauty treatments in the heart of Brighton. Established in 2019, Rest is run by Ruth and Marta, passionate and experienced therapists with combined experience of 20 years working in massage and beauty therapy in the local area.
I am an independent fully insured massage therapist, registered with the Federation of Holistic Therapists and working in Brighton and Hove. I became interested in massage during a particularly stressful period at work and in my personal life. I found it amazing the effect that massage had on my body and mind, de-stressing and re-energising me. I want to share this experience with others.
After training in Swedish massage therapy in 2010, I then went on to explore other massage therapies including stone therapy and indian head massage. I’ve listed all my qualifications below. I love what I do and try to adapt my techniques to suit each individual rather than working to set routines.

The best wax I've had in Brighton & Hove! Marta is friendly, attentive and efficient. The salon has a lovely calm and relaxed vibe.
I have had hot stone massages with both Ruth & Marta and have thoroughly benefitted from the sessions. The salon is bright and clean and the therapy rooms are calming.
