For all existing and new clients.

As we approach a gradual easing in lockdown, I am following closely, guidelines issued by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the General Council for Soft Tissue Therapies (GCMT) and the Association for Biodynamic Massage Therapists (ABMT) in relation to preparing for practice. Currently, we have been advised to start carrying out risk assessments and to consider precautions needed in order to ensure safe practice.

What COVID-19 has highlighted is the preciousness of touch and unlike so many other therapies, it is irreplaceable and cannot be substituted. Warmth, softness and responsiveness of touch by a human to another speaks to so many aspects of what it is to be whole. I look forward to a time when this is again possible.

Until we can resume direct touch, you can still benefit from experiencing the following from me:

A 20 to 30 minutes on-line session to teach/ facilitate you to learn how to give yourself a mindful self-massage. This will be delivered via Zoom on a 1:1 basis. The self-massage will be limited to: Hands, arms, shoulders, chest, solar plexus, lower back, neck, head, face, feet, legs. A health questionnaire will need to be completed prior to each session. The fee for the online session will be £20.00.

The 20 to 30 minute session will enable you to enjoy more fully, Biodynamic Massage Therapy when I am up and running again because Biodynamic is all about ‘contactful’ touch and learning what this means is what the online sessions can give us.
