Hello everyone, as a Beauty Salon we’re disappointed by the latest government advice that we must remain closed for the moment. As ever, your safety and ours is top priority and we will never jeopardise that by going against government advice. We are reviewing our operating procedures to ensure the safety of all our clients and staff. We will adhere to government guidelines and will reopen when we can safely do so together.

Hopefully not too long now and we will keep you all informed as soon as we have further information. Thank you for your continued patience and loyalty. Stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Corona Virus Update

It is with a very sad heart that we have taken the decision to ‘temporarily’ close Sanctuary House as from the end of play today Saturday 21st March 2020.
Our first and foremost responsibility is to ensure we are doing as much as we can to look after the wellbeing and health of our clients, family and staff. Based on the guidelines from the government and World Health Organisation we know that the best way of controlling and eventually eliminating this dreadful virus is to self-isolate
This is probably the most worrying and uncertain times many of us have ever experienced, except for war times that our older generation lived through. It is scary to read about the daily rise in people having the virus, the number of deaths and people’s jobs and income being affected. It is certainly a time for all of us to pull together and help each other in whatever way we can.

We will continue to keep you updated via @sanctuaryhouse3 and will be providing tips on relaxation and various other bits of info that hopefully, will be useful and help people to feel a bit better. Indeed, we would encourage and love to hear from you about how you are coping, what questions you might have, helpful tips that you can share with all of us.

We would also like to reassure everyone who has a gift voucher that we will honour these and will extend the expiry date accordingly.

For clients who use our products, we can deliver these to your home. Leigh can send out your favourite skincare and makeup items, candles, pro-biotics etc. Julia will be happy to advise her clients on what oils are best for certain conditions and make up a special blend that you can use at home. Carlene can prepare bespoke hypnotherapy scripts for lots of different issues, anxiety, relaxation, slimming etc which can either be downloaded or sent to you in CD format.
Is there a favourite nail colour that you love when you have your nails done? then just ask Christine our in-house nail expert to source this for you. Annie our wonderful hairdresser can provide hair advice and products that you can use at home. Paul our in-house medium will be providing Skype and telephone readings.

If you have any queries or would like to place an order you can do so via our FB @sanctuaryhouse3 website www.sanctuaryhouse.co.uk or email info@sanctuaryhouse.co.uk or alternatively, call 0191 257 7774 and the appropriate member of our team will be delighted to help you in any way that they can.

Once we know it is safe to re-open we are going to celebrate and will be letting you know about some fantastic offers and packages.

To all our lovely clients and friends, please stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Lots of Love from

Leigh, Julia, Christine, Annie, Anne-Marie, Kirsten and Carlene


Make yourself at home at Sanctuary House

Whether you can spare just half an hour, or you can stretch to the luxury of a full day pamper, we want all our clients to leave us feeling they have had a chance to relax and benefit from the special atmosphere here at Sanctuary House.


What our customers say

  • "I thought that I would conceive baby number two as quickly as my first but after nearly a year of trying I was feeling disheartened. As a doctor myself, I knew that statistically it was likely to happen given more time, but in the mean time I decided to try alternative, non intrusive options (and ones that would relax me in the process!) I had one treatment of reflexology at Sanctuary House after the recommendation from my friend. It was a very relaxing, enjoyable hour and I felt wonderful afterwards. 2 weeks after this treatment I also fell pregnant! What I liked about Julia is that nothing felt 'over the top', no promises were made and no pressure was put on me in any way. I felt like she genuinely wanted me to relax and she had such a gentle and kind manner. I would recommend reflexology to anyone!"


  • "Julia is amazing. I'm a scientist at heart and truly believe reflexology is a science we don't fully understand yet (mainly due to a lack of funding in this area of research). Julia was recommended by a friend, who fell pregnant with Julia's help (Julia was recommended to her by a friend who fell pregnant after seeing Julia!). So, after a year of struggling, my friend and I went to see Julia and very shortly afterwards, we both fell pregnant. I have since referred friends (all very different stories), all have become pregnant. I have seen Julia at 39 weeks also and my digestive problems have improved remarkably. If I didn't fall pregnant, I would have benefited hugely from Julia's help still. Her reflexology produces such a feeling of well being, calmness and clarity. Reflexology will, one day,  be prescribed by doctors. I hope to continue to see Julia, she is magic!" - Kamal, Newcastle.
