Government has this week asked massage therapists to wait a bit longer until we can offer our hands-on treatments safely, effectively (and legally!), as our work is extremely close contact. Covid-19 still poses a real risk to health, especially to the most vulnerable, and as frustrating as this situation is, our priority must be to enhance our clients’ heath (and protect our own) and certainly not undermine it.
There is currently no date for a return to hands-on work, but I will of course keep you informed. When I re-open fully, I will be following the Government and professional guidelines to ensure that your treatments are as safe, effective and relaxing as possible.
Pre-book your next treatment
I have a waiting list of people to contact once I know when I can resume hands-on work, please let me know if you would like to be added. firstname.lastname@example.org
Still here to support you
Most of us will be getting some aches and pains due to a different routine, workspace and stress. Usually you’d go straight to your massage therapist, right?! But until I can return to work normally, here are a few ways that I can continue to support you:
ONE-TO-ONE PRIVATE SESSIONS
- Self-treating your aches, pains & injuries;
- Simple breathing & meditation exercises for stress and anxiety
- Seated partner massage – I can teach someone else in your household
- Super stretches for desk bunnies or couch potatoes
You will get a video, phone or even doorstep consultation and assessment of your needs, plus supervised self-massage, stretch and relaxation techniques. First consultation is FREE. Additional time is a suggested donation £20 per 30 minutes, or whatever you can afford if you have lost or have a low income.
Please do contact me email@example.com if you need some support or even just for a friendly chat – I am happy to listen.
GROUP SESSIONS FOR WORK TEAMS etc
If you work as part of a team (or have a group of friends or family that might be interested), then take a look at our new online well-being programme, aimed at supporting people’s physical and mental health during these testing times. In collaboration with my friend and mindfulness coach Priya Khan, we are offering guided mindfulness, stretching and self-massage sessions. For more info, just contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your kind messages of support have kept me going over the past few months. I am looking forward to seeing you all again in person sooner rather than later I hope!
