Coco de Mer Pleasure No2 The Dual Vibrator

Our Place Always Pan
Learning a new recipe and creating a delicious dish can do wonders for your well-being and mental health. The sense of achievement can help raise your self-esteem and sharing your dish with loved ones encourages socialising.

Bed of Nails
A bed of nails has been used for centuries for healing and meditation. The pressure of the nails on the skin helps release endorphins into the body. Endorphins are the body’s happy hormone that helps us feel joy, energy, pain relief and oxytocin. The nails also help to reduce cellulite and increase blood flow, leaving you feeling relaxed and re-energised.
