Charity Trek Update

Hi massage fans!

You may remember me telling you that I was due to be taking part in a charity trek challenge in Peru this October.

Sadly, but not unexpectedly, the trek has been postponed until April 2021.

I was very disappointed when I found out, but looking on the bright side it means I have an extra six months to fundraise for the charity.

If you would like to donate to the cause please follow the link to my JustGiving page…

I am fundraising for WaterAid. This charity provides clean and safe water sources and sanitation to areas that are currently without. This is a basic human right and even more important in the light of current events, when the importance of hand washing has been highlighted so much. I’d be so grateful of any donation, no matter how big or small, every little helps.

Thank you

Good News!

Good News! Last night we got the government go ahead to resume massage therapy!

I am still awaiting official guidelines from the MTI, and so I shall be taking appointments from Monday 27th July onwards to allow sufficient time to implement the required safety procedures.

As with everything else, there may need to be some changes to the way massage appointments are carried out. I shall update everyone further when I know more details.

In the meantime, if you would like to book an appointment please contact me with your preferred time and day and we can go from there.

Raising money for WaterAid

On 17th October 2020 I will be flying to Peru to spend 5 days trekking through the Andes mountains.

It will involve long days of trekking up very steep inclines at a high altitude, with very early morning starts and then camping overnight.

I am doing this to raise £4,000 for the charity WaterAid.

WaterAid is a charity aiming to provide clean water and decent toilets to everyone. Something that a lot of people take for granted, something that should be a normal part of daily life for everyone, everywhere. But, unfortunately at the moment it isn’t.

I would be most grateful if you could spare some money to sponsor me for taking part in this event, and helping the charity to achieve their goal of giving everyone clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

Thank you

Pressure

Everyone is different and everyone likes a different amount of pressure during their massage.

This is why I check in with clients regarding the pressure during their treatment.

If the pressure isn’t enough or if it’s too much please speak up and let me know. Everyone is different and everyone has a different pain threshold, I can’t read your mind so I won’t know how much pressure you like, unless you tell me.

I won’t be offended, in fact I’ll be pleased if you ask for a different pressure during your treatment, because it means I have a chance to do something about it. Rather than you leaving dissatisfied.

I don’t want you to lie on the massage table in pain, I don’t want you to lie there wishing for more pressure, I want you to have the best massage possible. And that involves a small amount of feedback from you! Otherwise I’ll be none the wiser.

Reiki

I have been attuned to Reiki level 1 and 2 and so am available to give Reiki treatments to clients.

Reiki is a Japanese word, roughly translated as the flow of the universal energy.

This energy is channelled through me for the client’s use. Reiki energy will go wherever it is needed and so is a holistic treatment, meaning it can be useful for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs.
