Update – January 2021

All areas under Poole Borough Council are now in Tier 4. I am able to continue to offer treatment to support an identified mental or physical health condition or injury that is causing you pain or having an adverse impact on your mobility or your quality of life. For clients who do not have identifiable health needs I am still able to offer help and advice remotely so please do reach out.

Merry Christmas!

Well that’s a wrap for 2020! I hope you all have a happy and restful Christmas. I look forward to seeing all of my clients again in the new year, may 2021 be a happy, healthy and brighter year for all!

Update – December 2020

Now the 2nd National Lockdown has ended I am available to see both existing and new clients subject to the recomendation that treatment should continue to be “essential” or “medical”. Whether or not you feel your issue falls within this criteria, please feel free to get in touch to discuss how I can help. I will risk assess based on you as an individual and, even if we decide against a hands on treatment, I have a wealth of self care strategies I am more than happy to share with you.

Inevitably there will be changes to my working practice involving masks, contactless forms and payments to name a few things. I would be grateful you would read through the changes, as set out in this document, before you attend your next appointment. Illness If I feel ill …

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 20/03/2020 

I am so sad to report I will be suspending all appointments with immediate effect. 😢 The Massage Training Institute (MTI) can no longer reconcile Government advice on social distancing with the continued provision of massage services and indeed all therapies that involve touch and close proximity. As such the MTI have advised, unequivocally, the immediate suspension of all practices.  It breaks my heart to have to do this but it is for the greater good and I truly believe we will all come out of this situation stronger and more grateful for each other. This situation is temporary so for …

The advice remains the same that a person should self-isolate at home for seven days if they have a recent onset of a new continuous cough and/or a high temperature.  However, in addition, anyone living with someone who is self-isolating due to such an onset should now stay at home for at least 14 days …
