COVID19 Pandemic

Crisis & Massage Practice

We are clearly navigating our way through uncharted territory as we adapt our lifestyles accordingly to cope with the COVID19 pandemic crisis. 
 
The Government has formally requested Massage Therapists to temporarily stop practicing in the interests of Public Health, to reduce the spread of the virus into the wider population. 
 
Professional Therapists have an ethical duty of care to comply with this perfectly reasonable request, until Emergency Social Distancing and Isolation Directives have been lifted. 
 
I very much regret not being able to offer clients a massage service at this stressful time and hope people can understand that this step has not been taken lightly. 
 
Hairdressers,  Beautician’s and Massage Therapists come under the Scottish Government’s Phase Three of the Roadmap out of lockdown. 
 
They are provisionally earmarked to reopen in August 2020, if all goes to plan.
 
A number of clients have contacted me during the crisis concerning Stress Management and Relaxation issues.
 
I remain willing to offer a listening ear and some free informal support via Telephone,  Text, WhatsApp or Email to anyone in need,  so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you feel I can be of assistance. 
 
I will be in contact with regular clients and update this page once I  am able to resume offering a service. 
 
In the meantime, do take great care of yourself,  and those around you, and try to remain strong, positive and safe.
 
Kind Regards,
Jim Liddle
Registered Massage & Relaxation Therapist
