After many months of being in limbo and not being able to operate, I am now pleased to announce that I will be opening my doors again on Tuesday 14th July!

I am sure many of you are feeling very much overdue for a massage or therapeutic treatment to help release some of the recent strange stresses and times that we have all been through.

Before making a booking, please read my NEW COVID-19 Related Policies Page, to make sure you understand the policies and fulfill the criteria necessary to be able to come for your treatment. You may also need to bring some extras with you such as a Face Mask (if you wish to wear one) and a Towel (if you need to shower in my Therapy Room).

If you have any queries, worries or want to discuss any treatments then please do not hesitate to call/text/whatsapp me on 07946 609429!

I look forward to seeing you again very soon... Andy :-) x

I have been reviewing how and when I sleep during the Lockdown break, and as a consequence, I have changed my opening hours. Essentially, on my late nights, I will now be closing 1 hour earlier. I will be closing at 9pm (rather than 10pm previously).

So this means that the Latest Starting Times for Appointments are now:

  • 8pm for 60 minute appointments

  • 7.30pm for 90 minute appointments

I have made this change so that I am getting more rest and going to bed earlier, so that I am starting each day as a better version of myself. This makes me more balanced and stronger to give you the best possible service! :-)

NEVER CARRY CASH? Pay more easily by Internet Bank Transfer!

Some of my clients never carry that much cash and are sometimes in a rush from work, etc, to get to their appointment on time and can find themselves stressed with no way of paying.

An easy solution to this situation is to pay for your treatment via Internet Bank Transfer. All you need initially are my Bank Sort Code and Account Number. Once you have used these to set me up as a Payee on your Internet Banking system, you can simply select my name from your list online to make the payment simply and easily before attending for your appointment.

Please make sure you text me to inform that you are paying via this method before any treatment, so I can ensure that the payment has been made.

PLEASE CONTACT ME to ask for my Bank Sort Code and Account Number if you wish to use this method of payment.

Keep the balance in your life with Equilibrium....

Massage is becoming an increasingly popular form of holistic and pro-active therapy, enjoyed by millions of people every day. It effectively reduces stress levels, stimulates the body's self-healing processes and helps replenish our vital energy, restoring equilibrium and balance. Enjoying a massage regularly (such as weekly or monthly) may help repair the body, relax and refresh the mind and enhance spirits, so that we are more able to face the challenges of life with a renewed sense of confidence and ease. If the pressures of life are not released through natural therapies, such as massage, then they can gradually have a more detrimental affect on the person as a whole.

Depending upon the choice and combination of massage techniques, the body can either be relaxed or stimulated, making it a useful and enjoyable form of therapy. Massage may alleviate stresses and strains on both the body and mind at once and the effects can often be felt quite instantly after a massage session.

People also use massage as an important complimentary therapy in helping to relieve various ailments and unwanted behaviours in their lives. Massage may help with many, including the following:

  • Anxiety and Depression: helps relieve the various symptoms of anxiety, depression and alleviate the psychological strain caused.
  • Insomnia and bad sleeping patterns: calms the racing mind down and makes the body feel naturally tired and ready for sleep.
  • Lack of concentration and short term memory: helps to calm the mind and senses, enabling the mind to operate in a more focused way.
  • Cutting down on Alcohol: as a compliment to cutting down alcohol consumption and counseling/support, massage may clear toxins from the body, aid restful sleep and alleviate depression.
  • Blood Pressure: can help to lower high blood pressure.
  • Painful areas that cannot be moved: may relieve strain on muscles and joints in the body and speed up their repair. Causes can be bad posture, awkward movement or minor accidents. Massage may also help prevent Repetitive Stress Injury.
