Piotr Duda
Holistic Therapist

Often known as the massage king in The Barn with people floating out of his treatment room and their shoulders dropped down. Until you had a treatment with Piotr you truly haven't had a massage!

Moving over from Poland 10 years ago and studying holistic therapy his talent comes completely naturally. Kelly actually employed him from just seeing him massage.

His nature is so calming and reassuring with tons of patient for his clients.
