If you have any symptoms of or have recently been suffering from nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, please call as soon as possible to re-book your massage for a later date.

Likewise, if you have any fever, chills, or fatigue potentially relating to cold or flu, it isn’t appropriate to have a massage for either of our interest.

Please take a common sense view on this and re-book your massage as soon as possible if you have any symptoms of illness. Try as much as you can to keep within the cancellation policy time-frames, this will need to be assessed on an individual basis. I keep the right to refuse to massage if you are sick.

Covid operating protocols have been relaxed. Surgical type IIR masks are now optional for clients and practitioners during treatment.

As always, each treatment situation should be risk assessed, if any of us feel that there is a need to use increased PPE or if we feel more comfortable doing so, then that should be respected.

Please bring any PPE you feel that you may need to use for any massage practice we do.

Please give me 48 hour notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment to get a full refund. To ensure I received a time sensitive message contact me on my number 07525 758 969. I am only able to check emails once a day.

I do understand that sometimes plans have to change. When you book an appointment  my time is reserved exclusively for you. As a small business, I really appreciate the minimum cancellation notice of 48 hours or 72 hours for Onsite & Event work . It gives me the opportunity to offer your space to another client, cancel rooms, etc and saves me from needing to charge you.

This being said, I really encourage and support you to be vigilant with your health . If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment  please let me know immediately and you will easily be able to reschedule.

I really appreciate your courtesy and understanding with this.

I appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. I look forward to working with you again soon.

Essential:

  • a drape to cover yourself during the treatment. I recommend a single flat sheet, extra large towel, thin fleece blanket, etc. It just needs to be large enough to cover you and soft enough for me to fold back to uncover the areas I will be working on. Your sheets, towels, and blankets may get a little marked from the massage oils used.  You may choose to designate specific items as your massage kit.

Optional:

  • a pair of shorts and a vest top so for the postural assessment (specially if you have booked an Remedial & Sports Massage).
  • any PPE you feel that you may need to use for any massage practice we do. Surgical type IIR masks are now optional for clients and practitioners during treatment.
  • drinking water and/or your favourite hot drink.
  • for added comfort you can bring a single fitted sheet to put underneath you.
  • you are also welcome to bring a blanket for warmth if you think you may need it (the room might be cooler than normal due to extra ventilation).
