Heaven & Health has been in business since 2002 and was founded by Helen Berryman, RN, LMT. Our office is conveniently located in Wilmington near the intersection of South Dupont Road and Lancaster Avenue (Rt. 48).
What Makes Us Different
Heaven & Health is a genuinely unique massage practice. By definition, we are neither spa nor clinic. While we do provide medical massages and treat victims of auto accidents and workplace injuries, our patients are treated with the same warm nurturing care that our non-medical clients enjoy.
Each person is greeted on arrival by their therapist and the therapist provides care for their client during their entire visit. This care includes reception, assessment and, of course, the massage! Following the treatment, the therapist will provide water before processing payment and rescheduling the client as needed. We prefer this total client care approach rather than having a receptionist.
You will feel right at home from the moment you step into our reception. Our fireplace provides a cozy warmth during the winter months and no British business would be complete without a portrait of Queen Elizabeth reigning over the room! You also can’t miss our authentic red telephone booth and Royal Mail postbox when you drive into the carpark!
Our highest priority is ensuring that your massage is entirely customized to your individual needs and we want you all to leave Heaven & Health feeling you received exactly the massage experience you were hoping for.
