We invited the author of lifestyle blog “A Literary Cocktail” to experience first hand all that we have to offer here at The Apothecary Salon and specifically our [Comfort Zone] Tranquillity Pro Sleep treatment. Read on to discover exactly what she thought of our unique and holistic treatment designed to relieve stress and aid nourishing and restorative sleep. We promise there’s no need for counting sheep…
My first thought when I entered The Apothecary Salon in Tickhill was ‘WOW’.
Picture it: It was a dark, rainy morning in Doncaster and I’d been invited to try out a treatment at a new salon in Tickhill. I’d lost my umbrella in the pub that weekend so as I ran for the bus I got drenched, and as I had never been to Tickhill before and have no sense of direction, I was pretty flustered by the time I actually arrived at the salon.
Situated in the heart of the charming village of Tickhill, The Apothecary Salon is a stunning, relaxing sanctuary from everyday life. It’s a haven, it’s a spa, and it’s possibly the most beautiful salon I’ve ever visited…

…I was there to try the Tranquillity Pro Sleep Massage, a unique treatment that, through the beneficial stimulation of three sensory pathways (smell, hearing and touch) helps the body to recover from stressful situations, the side effects of jetlag and improves the quality of rest and sleep….
…Using beautifully smelling [comfort zone] products, this massage uses a combination of touch along with the use of brushes (shown below) to stimulate the nerve fibres. This slow, repetitive motion promotes a state of peace and a profound release from the state of alertness. As you experience this heavenly treatment, hypnotic music is played, slowly lulling you into a state of ultimate relaxation.

… The massage lasted for around an hour, and as I laid happily in a dark, dreamy treatment room I was only sorry the massage didn’t last for longer! Luckily, Lindsey and the team welcome clients to stay as long as they’d like. I was politely informed to take my time after the treatment was over, and as I slowly roused myself out into the main part of the salon, I found a pot of Bluebird Tea waiting for me in the relaxation area – an area specifically for clients to use after or in-between treatments…
