All of your massage questions answered.


Our address is: 20A Nun Street, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 5AQ

Body & Mind Massage is located on the first, second and third floors within a Grade II Listed Building on Nun Street. We have our own entrance at street level, immediately next to "Forever Long" hair salon. We are 2 doors down from "Wilko".

BY CAR: There is on street parking available on Nun Street but it is limited (4 spaces) and is limited to 1 hour maximum and £2.30 per hour. More appropriate parking is available nearby on Clayton Street which you can pay for up to 3 hours at £1.20 per hour. Alternatively, you can park in "The Gate" multi story car park (5 minutes walk) or Grainger Town multi story car park (NE1 4DP, 10 minutes walk). The multi storey car parks are free after 5pm. During the day, the multi storey carparks are more cost effective than the on-street parking, but also slightly further away.

BY BUS: The nearest hubs are at Central Station and Monument.

BY METRO: We are 2 minutes walk from Monument Metro Station.

BY TRAIN: We are 10 minutes walk from Central Station.

Nothing special, but try to avoid alcohol for 24 hours before, and avoid eating a big meal on the 2-3 hours before your massage

If you are a first-time visitor to Body and Mind, you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire covering medical history. This is for your safety, and to allow us to best tailor your treatment to your needs

We can provide pregnancy massage. If you are in your first trimester it is not recommended to have a body massage, although it can be done safely. Massage can be beneficial after the first trimester, and you should consult your GP in any case.

Most of the treatments we provide require application of oil. This can be aromatic or odour-less (your choice). You should remove clothing to a level with which you are comfortable. You will be asked to leave your underwear on. In any case, you’ll be covered at all times with a towel from upper thigh to waist.

No. Your masseuse will show you to your treatment room and then leave you in private to undress. They will knock before re-entering.

When you make a reservation, we make sure that a room is prepared and a therapist is available. If you do need to cancel your appointment, please let us know as soon as you can. If you made an online booking you will have paid for your massage in full – if you make sure we get at least 24 hours’ notice of a cancellation or rescheduling then we will refund you (and we like to think we are reasonable in other circumstances!)

Yes! We currently have vouchers for a “massage of your choice” designed as a perfect gift. Just drop in to buy one, or we can arrange postage

It is completely up to you! If you do, you can be assured that your therapist(s) will keep 100% of the tip.
