I had the Zen Mama package. For the run up to my delivery date I always looked forward to the treatment and came away feeling relaxed and revitalised. I always then felt much better for the week after. As I got bigger lots of effort was made to ensure I was comfy and I couldn’t recommend more to pregnant ladies out there in need of some pre-baby relaxation. Great for sore backs and feet from carrying little bundles!

I had pregnancy massage and reflexology treatments. The whole experience was amazing. I didn’t have the easiest of pregnancies and the treatment i received definitely helped. The whole ambience is uber relaxing. So much so I went for a postnatal treatment and sent my darling daughter (who wasn’t sleeping very well at this time) straight to sleep. If I had to sum it up, One word…AMAZING.I would definitely recommend to my friends. I cant put into words how incredible you are as a therapist, confident and overall person. You made me feel very relaxed and that i coukd talk to you and open up. Wish i could come more often xx

The treatment room is beautiful, calming and relaxing. My treatments were heavenly. I had the Zen Mama. With a bad back and pregnant with an I.V.F. baby there was no way I was going to take any medication for my bad back, that could harm my baby. I then found Tania. With regular treatments my pregnancy went completely smooth and I found myself so relaxed afterwards. I recommend any pregnant lady to have this package. It was the one thing I looked forward too for me, and with Tania’s professional but friendly approach you cannot go wrong! As soon as I entered the therapy room I instantly felt relaxed. I need to rebook!! Xxx

The treatment room is lovely, warm & cosy. Makes you feel comfortable & relaxed, it’s also light & airy, you don’t feel cramped in. Always smells lovely. Light, refreshing & always makes me feels right at home! The zen mama package is perfect when pregnant. I’ve just had my 3rd one & I’m 8 months pregnant. Relaxes my muscles in my back & any aches or pains. Getting comfortable lying down is difficult at the size I am but I always am & find myself sometimes falling asleep! The reflexology helps the aches in my feet & makes them feel better. I am hoping it will help speed up my labour!! I would definitely recommend this treatment.
Kelly Rawlinson, Waterlooville
I came away from the treatment (Zen Mama), feeling very relaxed and stress free. This was due to the professional standard that you provided. You made me feel welcome and overall very relaxed. I thought you had a lovely calm way about you which made me feel at ease straight away and made me feel totally comfortable, I will definitely be returning.
Gemma Mallard, Havant
Lovely warm relaxing therapy room, lighting just right not too bright, smelt lovely, music was chilled when massage was being done. I went to Tania through recommendation from someone else. Tania is always most welcoming and helps you feel relaxed from start to finish. I have past Tania’s name on to others. Never had a massage before but was very comfortable with Tania’s service.
Would always have a chat whilst being massaged because otherwise I think I could have happily gone to sleep. Price is fair and a loyalty card is nice for the customer Thank you for the service you provided.
An incredible environment. From the moment you enter the cabin you are immediately calmed, relaxed and distanced from everything outside. Being so close to nature in the cabin style room, makes you feel very earthy and spiritual – from the patter of rain to the tweet of birds in spring. The decor is beautiful and feels very exotic. Every element the treatment room from the scent of calming oils and dimmed yet natural lighting really sets you up for a great experience. My treatments were incredible. I used Zenses for massages and reflexology throughout of pregnancies and have found it helped relieve all tensions in my back, hips and legs as I progress through to full term. Couldn’t recommend more highly!
Natalie Evans, Fareham
The Zen Garden room is a lovely relaxing space, a hidden oasis that I hadn’t expected to find. I found My treatments (reflexology), relaxing and insightful. Calm and welcoming environment with plenty of information about what I could expect and what I could do myself to help improve my general health and wellbeing, definitely recommend to a friend.
Sian Richards, Havant
I found the treatment room very relaxing and welcoming. It was warm and like a home from home surroundings. I found having reflexology very relaxing and helpful throughout my pregnancy. Worth every penny and gives you great peace of mind throughout pregnancy. My little girl (7months), is a very relaxed baby and I feel having a relaxing pregnancy helped.
Stacey Triggs, Drayton
The Zen Garden room had total calmness, it just hits you when you walk in, I started to relax as soon as I walked in. I had Reflexology and reiki with Tania to help with relaxation and reduce stress. it really did make me feel so good inside, I felt relaxed, I had a clearer mind too. A total holistic experience
Alison Cloutman, Lee On The Solent
I heard about Tania through my midwife. The treatment room was beautiful, very tranquil. I would highly recommend pregnancy massage. My sessions were lovely and Tania is a lovely person, thank you
Stephanie Williamson, Portsmouth
Tucked away unexpectedly, the treatment room is calming and private and very comfortable. It is beautiful. My maternity reflexology treatment was amazing – it was absolutely wonderful right at the end of my pregnancy (I had four treatments booked in the last four weeks) and I actually ended up having a show a few hours after my third treatment. My little girl was born in just under 4 hours a few days later! So glad I booked it!!!
Faye Williams, Denmead
I found the Zen Garden room calming, peaceful, warm and tranquil. A professional area with soft lighting and relaxing aromas. I found my treatment (reflexology and reiki) to be professional, yet down to earth, relevant to own condition alongside being a real treat, time was taken to discuss findings and areas affected I found the whole experience very relaxing and helped with my own healing.
I have been having pregnancy reflexology for several weeks and have always left feeling very relaxed. Having my treatment definitely prepared me for labour. My treatment each week was a little time for me, away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I feel it definitely contributed to my short labour of 2hrs 40mins.
Nikki Willis, Waterlooville
The Zen Garden is absolutely beautiful and incredibly calming from the moment you walk in. My treatments were wonderful throughout my pregnancy, especially as it was summer and my feet were swollen. It also served as a time out from everything to fully relax.I think I fell asleep a few times! Definitely Highly professional but friendly and supportive experience. I will be booking in some post natal treatments and definitely recommending Zenses.
Alison Russell, Portsmouth
It was one of the most relaxing days of my entire pregnancy!
Bianca Vermeulen-Smith, Northend
The smells in the room are divine, the room is cosy and clean and built for comfort and relaxation. Treatments with Zenses are amazing. Extremely relaxing and get to the problem areas. The oils used are great. I love the opportunity to make time to spend at the Zenses cabin. It’s definitely makes you feel great!
Komal Helyer, Horndean
The Zen Garden treatment room was warm and inviting , nicely decorated. I felt very relaxed after my treatment (Full Body Massage & Facial Reflexology). Tania is always attentive, intuitive and takes pride in her work.
Rosemary Dubois, Bedhampton
I saw Tania for reflexology to bring on labour when I was 1 week overdue with baby no 2. Tania just put me at ease and I had a very relaxing treatment (nice atmosphere and a lovely “foot massage”). Plus it all worked! My baby was born 18 hours later and labour was very quick!
I also saw Tania twice for postnatal reflexology to help with getting hormones and various things back on track. Again the treatments were very relaxing and I felt in very good hands. Highly recommended!!!
Linda Smith, Portsmouth
I have had 3 reflexology treatments and a massage now from Zenses over the last few weeks and all have been very relaxing and Tania is a very talented lovely lady. Cannot wait for my treatment next week thank you x x
Had a lovely reflexology appointment on Thursday at 39 weeks pregnant, turns out I was in early stages of labour. Having mild cramps before I got to Zenses and during treatment.
Left at 2:30pm and had my baby boy in my arms by 6:40pm!! Labour had clearly started for me, but a wonderful relaxing treatment that put me in a very positive and relaxed mind set, with what went on to be a quick labour of 2hr 12mins!! Def think the relaxed state helped! Thank you!
I had a lovely pregnancy reflexology treatment in the hope that it would help kick start my labour at 10 days over due and it done just that, I started getting pains that evening and went into full labour the next day. Love the log cabin room very relaxing. Would recommend to anyone.
Loved it. Bit more pressure but I could have stayed there for hrs 🙂
Had the zen mama package. Loved it thank you felt so relaxed when I left
Had two lovely massages so far at The Zen Garden, both times felt welcoming, calming & above all just what I needed, the setting around you gives you a feel that your mind can wander away a midst your massage into a place of calm & total relaxation. Lovely experience.
Just been and had a zen mama massage and it was amazing feel so relaxed and baby defo loved it as won’t stop wriggling, will defiantly recommend, looking forward to my next appointment
Amy Mitchell, Havant
Thank you Tania for helping me feel better, it’s so clear that you are passionate about what you do and your caring and professional nature made me feel really at ease. I hope to see you again soon

Review from customer at The Natural Therapy Centre, Cosham
I’ve been seeing Tania since I was 25 weeks pregnant and I’m now ready to drop! Her treatments are amazing and have made me feel so relaxed! I’ve been loving “me time”. The new Zen Heaven package is an absolute must!!!!!
Leanne Simpson, Portsmouth
I highly recommend reiki …… Just had an hour of reiki …. Thank you Tania I feel grounded, positive and my mind is at ease…..bliss x
Cathy Cook, Portsmouth
I found Tania on the Baby Hampshire website and booked in for a Zen Mama, I had been suffering with a kidney urine infection. I also wanted to help reduce pain in my lower back and coccyx area. Tania is very friendly and made me feel thoroughly relaxed during my treatments, and found them very soothing as well as they helped reduce the pain. I would highly recommend Tania.
Lucy Shah, Warsash
I cannot recommend Tania enough, had a wonderful massage and reflexology at really short notice last week when I was feeling really tired and down in the dumps. She was welcoming, made me feel really relaxed and most importantly at 37+1 I have slept brilliantly every night since my treatment! Reasonably priced too!
Lou Earp, Hayling Island
I have suffered from a bad neck on and off for a long time. A regular back and neck massage with zenses made a huge difference in reducing my pain and discomfort, would definitely recommend.
Rachel Gosling, Porchester
Feeling fully relaxed after my amazing massage and reflexology, was lovely!! Thank you!!
Aideen Smith, Bedhampton
I had a Zen Mama massage on Friday. It was truly amazing. Thank you so much x
Gemma Lindsay, Cosham

Kirstie Clout, Southsea
I had a Zen Mama massage yesterday which was fabulous! Highly recommended and Tania is a lovely lady too! Xx
I had a Zen Mama post-birth full body massage today and it was wonderful. I’ve booked up again for next week! Thank you x
Thank you Tania for coming to my house and putting me in heaven for 1 and a half hours at 39 weeks pregnant. Massage and reflexology were fantastic. Got me nice and relaxed hopefully ready for home birth
Tina, Knowle Village
I started coming to Tania because of back pain and continued with treatment for relaxation throughout my pregnancy. I always feel relaxed after my treatment. Tania is very professional and knowledgeable about pregnancy and the treatments she offers, she satisfies any doubts I may have at the time.
Amazing, relaxing and absolute heaven xxx
I am a Nurse so struggle with stress at work causing tension in my neck and regular headaches. Having regular massages with Tania focusing on these areas have made my headaches easier to cope with. After my treatment I felt very relaxed both emotionally and physically. My mood was uplifted and I slept well after the treatment. My headaches and stress levels are reduced with regular treatments.
I feel comfortable talking to Tania about everyday life stresses and strains so my massage is centered and adapted especially for me. Nothing is too much trouble for Tania, offering advice for relaxing at home and in the comfort of her therapy room with an electric blanket for colder days. The choice of music helps your mind relax and slip away from normal life.
I have already recommended Tania, as I have never felt so comfortable having a massage as when I come to her. She is very well priced and I’m centre of the treatment and not just another customer. I like that Tania remembers previous conversations so she gives the personal touch to her service.
I have previously had a full body massage and chocolate indulgent pedicure which I can thoroughly recommend. Tania used chocolate massage oil during the massage so the smell of chocolate filled the room, finished off the luxury pedicure with hot chocolate and brownie on the side, made me feel very relaxed and uplifted by the endorphin’s released. Thank you Tania.
Kerry McManus, North End
Initially I was unsure about the treatments as this is my first pregnancy and I was unsure of benefits/ how it would differ to normal treatments I have had in the past but no other concerns. I had heard reflexology can possible reduce labour time and also for relaxation and, as the pregnancy progressed to ease any aches or pains I may develop. I thoroughly enjoyed all treatments and they certainly helped my back pains (the massage). I felt very relaxed and calm. The whole experience is very enjoyable – Tanya makes every effort she can to make sure I am comfortable – even by putting an electric blanket on her treatment bed when it was very cold so that it was as warm and relaxing as possible. She remembers little details about her clients that make you feel cared about and she is very easy to talk to. She gives excellent advice to support aches and pains during pregnancy without being pushy. It is clear she is very passionate about her job and her clients and this personal touch is why I wouldn’t ever hesitate to recommend her.The benefits about receiving a massage from Tania, Specialist for pregnancy, Personal touch with positions/ laying down/sitting depending on ease and comfort levels for client, Atmosphere – colour scheme, comfort of treatment table etc.
Thank you for everything so far and I look forward to my next appointment!
V. Hill, Southsea
I had Pregnancy Massage to help get rid of shoulder pain and to relax during my pregnancy. The treatment was very relaxing and helped. Tania I would recommend to other’s, she is lovely, warm welcoming and very friendly.
C Hayes, Southbourne
I started using Zenses Holistic Therapies in January, after being let down by another therapist. I was pregnant when Tania first started treating me with Reflexology. I was aware of the benefits that Reflexology can give when you are pregnant. It can help reduce labour times as well as induce it, as well as relax you too.I have continued to receive treatments after the birth of my daughter in April 2012, as a weekly treat for myself after looking after a very busy family, as well as for post natal recovery, helping with hormonal imbalances.I can highly recommend Tania as she makes you feel at ease as she treats you
Debbie Stroud, Southsea
Firstly… Thank you! My first Reiki treatment!
I was a little sceptical before this treatment, but I can honestly say I will be booking more! A Heart Attack a few weeks ago left me full of frustration, worry and depression… You made me feel totally at peace and beyond relaxed! Just for a little while, felt that there were no worries, and a have regained a positiveness that was missing! Thank you again Tania!
A few years ago I damaged a cervical and lumbar vertebrae falling off a building. I’ve always had a relentless dull ache in both neck or back, and a lot of deferred pain in other areas, pain that I resigned myself to having to simply put up with.
I had a neck and back massage from Tania, and all I can say is Wow! I never imagined I would feel an immediate effect! My fiancée and I have been planning our wedding so as well as the back / neck pain I’ve been extremely stressed!
After my massage, I not only felt extremely calm, relaxed and refreshed, but that relentless ache was no more! I understand that this won’t last indefinitely, but I will be returning to see Tania on a regular basis!
There are a lot of people, who claim to be able to give a professional and effective massage, but this lady is the real deal! I would highly recommend her. I’ve become a firm believer in Holistic therapies.
Thank you Tania”
Glenn Alexander, Havant
I receive thorough, attentive, lovely Reflexology treatments from Tania. She is supportive, encouraging and allows me my own space to take in the results of the treatments. She is a good listener and communicator, which, in my view, enhances the experience even more. I am grateful to receive her special touch and recommend her fully
Noelia Romani, Hayling Island (fellow reflexologist)
Thanks for the excellent full body massage, afterwards I felt so relaxed. The Reiki that was also offered has brought my poor and weary body to life. Once again thanks,Regards
I Have received several reflexology treatments from Tania and found them to be extremely relaxing and therapeutic. I would highly recommend Tania as a holistic therapist due to her confident, capable and sensitive nature.
Pauline Fletcher, Hayling Island (fellow reflexologist)
Tania is very confident, approachable therapist with passion and enthusiasm for the treatment and the clients. During my reflexology treatment I felt very relaxed, and would definitely have treatment by Tania in the future.
