  • COVID-19 – We need your help

    Due to Covid-19, Massage Therapists are still not permitted to work. The date of 4th July had been given as the return to work – but the government pulled the rug at the last minute. We have no idea when we will be given the green light.

    If you have a mind, please write to your MP, and lobby to help get us back to work.

    We will be in touch with all current clients as soon as we are able to resume.
