Blog Posts

al Covo is a prestigious, private and peaceful massage, waxing, trimming and tidying and well-being suite in the heart of Southampton with 2 hours free parking. You will be the only guest here as this is a personal business, without salon frontage, that is open by appointment only, Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm and occasionally at weekends. Treatments, training and products are offered by me, Steve, at the suite or at your own venue. The philosophy is simple... Relax and love your body! I offer free 20 minute consultations on arrival at your first visit, over the phone or via email.

I look forward to treating you! Steve

Born in Worcestershire, and educated to second (Masters) degree in Geography, Steve worked in a corporate company before being inspired more fully into well-being from travels to the Eastern and Tropical countries of the Philippines, India, Kenya, the Maldives, Mauritius and Mozambique.

Having worked at Chewton Glen Hotel in the New Forest, I am now happily living with a partner above my own treatment, product and training suite in Southampton, Hampshire. I continue to build my holistic therapy portfolio, currently studying Homoeopathy, and creating my own range of natural herbal and aromatherapy products, practicing Tantra, Ayurveda, Hatha and Jnana Yoga.

I gained an understanding of spas, treatments and clients along my way, and have developed this into my own practice, al Covo, to which I welcome you warmly. I pride myself on al Covo's warmth, peaceful aura, hygiene and thoroughness.
