Current situation – a return to hands on work, with modifications

Hurrah we’re back, just slightly different. The government has given the go ahead for “close contact” services such as massage work to restart and I am now taking bookings again.

There are of course changes to the way in which I’ll be working in order to ensure that I can continue to help you with your pain condition, or help you to deeply relax, while keeping both of us as safe as possible. I’ve listed these changes on a separate page (New Arrangements, above) and will talk you through them when you book an appointment so that you know what to expect. Of course I’m happy to have a chat about any concerns that anyone may have.

I understand that coming back for treatment doesn’t feel right for everyone right now – we’re all finding our way back into the world after lockdown and how we do it and the pace at which we do it is different for everyone. But please be assured, if you are thinking about getting some treatment, that I have gone beyond the requirements of the guidelines in some ways in order to ensure that I have mitigated the risks as far as I realistically can. Trust is an important element in giving and receiving massage treatment and I am honoured by the trust which my clients have put in me over the years to work with them to help them out of pain. I would never risk losing that trust by exposing anyone to harm which I could prevent and this has been the basis on which I have prepared my practice for returning to work.

Some comments from returning clients:

“So easy to forget just how important and beneficial the massage sessions with Sarah are. Just had the first one for a long time after lockdown. I should say, we know it in our minds somewhere but when you are back on the table the reality is something else. It’s ‘’Ahh yes, that was it’’, deep relaxation returns. Enjoyable experience plus positive effects, double win!”
