SMT WILL BE CLOSING
FOR 2 WEEKS
OPENING HOURS WILL BE CHANGING
Due to recent new rules from the government regarding lockdown many massage therapists have had to close their doors however, some Sports Massage Therapists are still allowed to continue working . SMT will be closed for 2 weeks whilst a few changes are made. If you have an appointment booked with me for within the next 2 weeks I will unfortunately have to cancel it but am happy to reschedule for when I re-open if you would prefer. If you have a prepaid appointment booked, I am happy to refund you if you do not wish to reschedule.
How can I stay open?
The association that I am registered with (the SMA) has a strict list of accredited schools that graduates can register from. This ensures that every therapist registered with the SMA is of a certain quality and matches a certain criteria.
The qualification I hold is Level 5 which means it a degree equivalent qualification which includes study of pathological tissues and allows me to treat medical issues. As a result a number of associations have been able to add their Level 4 and Level 5 Sports Massage Therapists to the same category as Physiotherapists which allows me to continue to work.
I will be reducing the services I offer and will only be providing Sports Massage and Sports Massage for Pregnancy. The idea is that alongside other manual practitioners the work we do prevents people going to the doctors or the hospital and as a result this offsets the NHS.
Conditions which may indicate treatment
Unbearable pain levels
Inability to perform activities of daily living
Inability to sleep
Inability to work (frontline workers)
