An organic beauty brand has announced that the spa, by 7th Heaven Beauty, will give clients enjoying free facials and massages from a team of qualified beauty therapists the opportunity to relax, as cuddly animals from Greenwich Rabbit Rescue hop around the space.

The 7th Heaven brand is an approved Cruelty Free International and Vegetarian Standard trademark that champions animal welfare.

By opening in London, they want to pamper the bunnies just as much as people.

The Evening Standard reports that as well as pandering to the animals, 7th Heaven also plans to give hand and foot masks to people who drop in. Healthy snacks and drink will also be made available for clients to nibble on during their sessions.

The Bunny Spa is located on Shelton Street, beside Covent Garden tube and will open up from 10am between 12-14 March.

Metro.co.uk quoted 7th Heaven spokesman Steven Van Hemmen as saying the beauty brand loves both humans and animals, adding that the shop was the perfect way to combine the two.

He promised that the rabbits would be pampered with loads of food inside a huge run where they could interact with humans, something they love to do.

Anyone interested in booking an appointment should call in to the Shelton Shop as appointments will be available very much on a first come, first served basis.
