Guidance for the latest lockdown from 5th November 2020

During this lockdown period, face-to-face treatment can take place if it is ‘essential to your health’. For those who aren’t able to receive in-person treatments, my online service is still operating, just call or email for an appointment.

My professional associations and insurance provider have suggested that my work can be defined as ‘health services’ in item 47, section 4 of the government legal guidelines for lockdown on their website (see below)

47. Dental services, opticians, audiology services, chiropody, chiropractors, osteopaths and other medical or health services, including services relating to mental health.

There have been a number of updates and changes since I reopened my practice on Tuesday 14th July including the latest lockdown. I have responded with protocols that align with these changes as they have occurred. All of these procedures are available to view via the links below. The full government guidelines I’m following are available here.

To book an appointment please email, call or text

If you are a new client, you’ll need to complete and return a consultation form. Existing clients will have already completed one of those. Moving forwards, all clients will need to complete an additional Consultation and Consent Form before each appointment, this contains specific COVID-19 screening questions and is completed online. In addition, consultations will take place by phone, Zoom or FaceTime within 24 hours before any face-to-face contact, this is to reduce contact time to the minimum. Step-by-step guidelines will be provided via email once you’ve booked so that you’re aware of what to expect when you attend. I am here to support and guide you and will do my best to ensure the process is as uncomplicated and smooth as possible.

My Risk Assessment is available here.

Further Client Information can be found here.

Watch the video to see the changes to expect when you attend your appointment.

The great news is that my treatment space lends itself perfectly to the current circumstances. No waiting room, an integral bathroom, laminated flooring, good ventilation etc. It’s very easy to clean and sanitise and I will be allowing 30 minutes between clients for this purpose.

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you soon.

And for those who aren’t able to receive face-to-face treatments, my online service is still operating, just call or email for an appointment.

I have just had an online session with Sally and would highly recommend it! I sought her help for knee pain, she was able to spot the problem and explain it to me. She led me through several exercises and a virtual self-treatment, which I didn’t know was possible but turned out to be really helpful thanks to her clear and soothing guidance. She even took the time to send me everything by email so I could keep practicing in my own time. It was almost like being in her treatment room, and by the end of the session I felt better both physically and mentally. Thank you for your help Sally, and for brightening up my day, as always!

“Giving connects two people, the giver and the receiver, and this connection gives birth to a new sense of belonging.”
– Deepak Chopra

Why not treat yourself?

I provide a range of massage and other complementary therapies that will bring you back in connection to yourself, the world and all that you love in your life. When you book a treatment with me, you are making a decision to take care of yourself and to honour your needs. You realise the importance of your body and mind and its natural well-being and recognise the desire to function at your fullest potential.

The therapies I offer may help relieve the effects of stress and other discomforts and help put you back together again. Together we can empower your body to liberate itself from the rigours of a busy life and an active lifestyle and restore your vitality.

“Sally is so good for my old bones!  I feel as if I have been ironed out mentally and physically after an appointment.  Just walking into the treatment room I find so relaxing and I leave walking six inches taller, feeling I can face the world again. 

Sally has a very special gift, indeed she is a very special person, who always manages to somehow make my body feel eighteen again!  Back pain disappears, knees bend again, and I really do feel so much better.”
– June Andrews

 Why not treat someone else

Why not show how much you care by buying a gift voucher for someone special in your life. These are available for each of the therapies I offer or you can choose a specific value and allow the recipient to choose the treatment.

I am happy to discuss treatment options with you before you book or at the time of your appointment. Alternatively, you can choose from the wide range of therapies I offer. 

Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork

With over 25 years of experience in massage and bodywork and over 35 years of experience in health care, you can be assured that I am committed to providing you with the best experience possible. Each session you book with me is carefully tailored to your needs at that time based upon the information you provide and my own observations; as such, each treatment is truly holistic and may include a variety of different bodywork techniques to achieve the desired outcome. These may include many forms of therapeutic, remedial and deep tissue massage, mobilisations and stretches, neuromuscular techniques, myofascial release work, the use of hot and/or cold stones, healing, breath work and relaxation techniques, Rhythm Mobility®, acupressure and trigger point work, soft tissue release, MET’s etc.

In all types of massage therapy, the intention is to relax the soft tissues, increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the massaged areas, warm them, and help the body to relax.

Massage may be found to bring relief from everyday aches, reduce stress, increase relaxation, address feelings of anxiety and tension, and aid general wellness. It can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries.

What happens during a treatment?

I usually book clients for 30 minutes to 1-hour sessions; the fee you pay is based upon the time taken for the massage itself, not the consultation time or any advice given after the treatment. We will discuss your symptoms, medical history and what you would like to gain from the treatment. The massage will be performed whilst you lie comfortably on my luxury couch, usually with oils but maybe without or through clothes at times. Depending upon time and your needs, the massage may include your whole body or be focused on chosen areas. Extended treatments can be arranged, the extra time allows for a more thorough treatment or for more combinations of therapies to be used. Communication is key and your wishes and preferences are paramount, so please let me know if you don’t like particular techniques or prefer a particular approach and always tell me during a session if you experience pain or discomfort.

Benefits of Massage

There are many anecdotal benefits of massage and my clients have reported so many over the many years I’ve been in practice. For some evidence-based benefits. Please visit here.
