CPD and Not quite Open!

Unfortunately Soft Tissue Therapy and Sports Massage didn’t quite make the cut in the list of other industries that are allowed to operate from 4th July – Boris clearly hasn’t had a treatment to know that the role plays an important part in healthcare. Our small but united band are lobbying the Government hard to…

Coronavirus Update – New Policies

Dear Clients, As you know, due to the coronavirus pandemic, I am unable to provide treatments as dictated by the Government and my governing bodies. I am hoping that restrictions will ease in July.
