Chair massage has more to offer than simply relaxation. It is especially helpful in accessing the shoulders and neck for remedial work, as this case study from The International Journal of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork demonstrates. http://ijtmb.org/index.php/ijtmb/article/view/330/392

Probably not as much as we thought. https://www.theguardian.com

Covid and Massage

I am fully vaccinated and am very happy to be seeing clients and teaching again. I am performing lateral flow tests regularly to ensure I am not carrying the virus.
 
Due to the current Covid situation, I am continuing to follow safety precautions, including both of us wearing masks during your treatment and for now only working with vaccinated people, unless there you have a medical exemption. 


If you feel ill in any way prior to your appointment please contact me before attending. 

I hope we'll be able to relax some of these precautions soon but I don't feel the situation is stable enough yet.


Huge thanks to everyone for your help and understanding.
