We're Open!

We are so excited to be open at long last. We know lots of you have been in a lot of pain through lockdown and have been patiently (or maybe not so patiently? ) waiting to be able to book in and get that so needed massage treatment - so we are really looking forward to being able to help you.

Online booking is up and running but as always we have other appointment times available too so give us a ring or email if you can't find a time to suit.

We've all been working hard to make sure we can keep you safe when you come for an appointment:

We are asking everyone who enters the building to clean their hands using the sanitiser which is now just inside the front door or wash their hands in the cloakroom on the way up to the reception area and to bring a mask with them.

We are limiting the number of people in reception at any one time. Please aim to arrive no more than a few minutes before your appointment time and come on your own.

We are airing the rooms and cleaning and disinfecting even more carefully between clients plus using extra wide and strong couch roll and wipeable surfaces.

We are asking you to re-schedule if you develop symptoms which could be COVID 19 or have been in contact with anyone who has - and we won't charge for last minute re-scheduling for this reason. We have an infra red thermometer so we can check your temperature from a distance when you arrive.

Our therapists have been busy studying and increasing their knowledge all through lockdown and are really enjoying being back. So now's the time to get yourself sorted - de-stressed, re-balanced, out of pain.

    " We measure how we feel by how we have always felt ... we could feel better...."

    "Many of us suffer from ‘nagging’ lower back pain that just won’t go away – and the answer isn’t painkillers or anti-inflammatory drugs. Instead, massage is so effective that a third say their pains disappeared or were much improved after 10 weeks of treatment.
    Researchers reckon that structural or relaxation massage is as effective as other non-drug therapies, such as acupuncture, exercise and yoga.
    In a study of 400 people with chronic lower back pain they had endured for at least three months, researchers from the Group Health Cooperative found that both types of massage were extremely effective compared with a ‘do nothing’ approach. Participants had a weekly massage for 10 weeks, by the end of which one third said the pain had gone completely or had improved. As a result, they were able to function better, and led more active lives, and were able to get to work every day.
