All I need you to provide space for me to set up my Massage Table and be able to move around it. I need about a 9ft by 5ft space and somewhere to wash my hands.

I will provide the towels and the massage wax.

For a massage, you only need to wear your underpants.

Even if you are only having a back massage, I will need access to your lower back, so will need to lower your underwear to the top of your bottom and it’s difficult to do that if you leave your trousers on.

If you are having a Remedial massage then you’ll need to wear shorts and a vest top for the postural assessment.

I use songbird Liquiwax which is a blend of beeswax and olive oil. It is nut free and leaves your skin feeling lovely and soft, but not oily. It gives me a good grip so I can work deeper into the muscles if needed. I also have a vegan massage wax if you’d prefer. If you have any allergies please let me know. I have a couple of different scents or unscented for you to choose from.

No, I cover Keynsham and the surrounding area. By this, I mean up to 30 minutes drive from Keynsham. This covers Bristol, Bath, South Glos and parts of Somerset.

If you’re not sure if your area is covered, please feel free to contact me.

Yes, I massage people of any gender.

This depends on what the skin condition is.

If the skin is broken, it is not advisable to have a massage as it may be aggravated by the oil. If the skin condition is contagious then, unfortunately, I can’t provide a massage.

The best thing to do is to ask me before you book your massage and I’ll let you know whether or not I can provide a massage, so please get in contact.

I have a Level 5 qualification in Remedial and Sports massage, a Level 3 in swedish massage and CPD qualifications in Pregnancy massage, Indian Head Massage and Seated chair massage.

I have invested in a good quality table that can take 500lbs / 267kg / 35 stone, so I am able to massage the vast majority of people.

No. Once we’ve discussed what kind of massage you want and areas you’d like me to focus on or avoid I will leave the room to wash my hands.

This is when you undress and get on the table under the towel.

I ensure that my massage table is cleaned before and after every client. Each client has a clean set of table linens (no covering up used linens with couch roll). I wear a face mask and an apron. I have received both vaccinations. I wash my hands and forearms before and after every massage. I take regular lateral flow tests. I ask all clients to complete a covid questionnaire prior to their appointment and ask that if anyone in the house has symptoms that the appointment is rearranged.
