Well all this extra cleaning and what not means I have an extra bit of washing to do... not that I mind, atleast I don't have to wash it by hand.
So good to be back doing massage... my actual favorite place to be. :-)

The past fortnight I have been struggling with an invisible illness... one that not too many of you know about but since I was supposed to open my doors today and have had to postpone it due to my own health and having to manage my pain levels I feel as though I need to explain why I am not back doing what I love so very much.
I have struggled with this annoying invisible enemy for almost a decade now but some days it proves just too much for my body to handle and it shuts down.
So long story short I'll do my damndest to be back on my feet with my doors open on Monday.... but at this stage it's a wait and see . 🥰🥴🥰🥴🥰

Hi all my favorite people!
As you may have heard Level 2 starts on Thursday the 13th of May.
I have a pile of things that I have to introduce and implement into my practices.
So just bare with me while I try to figure out how to juggle all of these things.
I will be spending all day Tuesday/Wednesday calling and booking everyone back! 💜
With that in mind please remember
* I will be honoring appointments in order they were lost- it’s only fair those who lost their appointment 6 weeks ago to get priority over new bookings.
*I will probably be restricted to one client at a time.. which means I can only get three to five clients in one day when previously I could get 6-8
* I cannot work everyday all day but I will work overtime to get everyone feeling normal
* No additional people at your appointment (children, friends, etc)
* Just because I can’t get you in right away doesn’t mean I don’t care about you or want to see you!
I hate this as much as all of you. 😩
Please be patient
🖤 Can’t wait to hear what you did during quarantine 2020 🖤

Happy mothers day to all the Mums, Step Mums, Mums of Angel's, Mums of Furr Babies and all those Dads that have had to step up and do both roles.
What you all do for us doesn't go unrecognized.
Love you all ###

Mum is doing so much more right now.
Trying to juggle everything family, dinners, kids, cleaning more, helping with e-learning, at the same time, trying to make sense of life for everyone and still trying to keep a sense of stability.
SHOW MUM YOU CARE with a Gift Certificate

For those of you who don't know I too am a "human" and I also get struck down with niggly things like migraines.
The past 3 days I have been in bed with a Migraine that has caused me some unexpected trips to the bathroom.
So when I saw this clip I just had to share my wee giggle. :-)
Hope you are all doing very well in this stage of Level 3.
Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
We are massage therapists in a COVID world, life in plastic is fantastic! The imaginings of a massage...from a distance

With Mother's day just around the corner, why not get in touch with us to book her a relaxing massage or maybe she's more of a sauna gal.
Grab her a voucher so she can snag an appointment at a later date.

Hey guys and gals,
Just wanted you to know I miss you all... I can't believe, we are not going to see each other until atleast Mid-end of May.
Just remember, I will still be here once the "stay at home" has been lifted, to help you even more. Believe it or not chronic pain can become worse due to the stress we all are under.
So remember to drop your shoulders and have a few deep breaths, if you start to feel anxious. Maybe go for a walk around the block or just sit on the front porch and listen to the birds.

Thanks to all my lovely clients who have kept in touch with me over the past few weeks. I’ve appreciated how many of you have been asking how I am or how you can help me sustain my business while I remain closed.
If you’ve been thinking about vouchers, concession cards, and prepaid sessions, then now’s a great time to arrange them! Get in touch today, and I’ll have vouchers ready for pick-up once lockdown is over 😊
Both Massage an Infrared sauna vouchers are available.

Working from home has its perks...ish.
Sitting in comfort, wrapped up in my favorite blanket surrounded by my fur babies.
I was brushing up on some of my massage knowledge... right up until my cat Gandalf decided that it looked like a good place to sleep! 😅🤦♀️🐱🤦♀️🐶🤦♀️😅

➖ Life at Level 3 ➖
+++++ INDUSTRY UPDATE +++++
The following is extract has been taken directly from the recently updated COVID-19 website:
▪️𝙈𝙤𝙨𝙩, 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙗𝙪𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙚𝙨 𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙧𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙤𝙥𝙚𝙣 𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧 𝘼𝙡𝙚𝙧𝙩 𝙇𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙡 3.
Businesses cannot offer services which involve face-to-face contact or sustained close contact (e.g. hairdressing, massage, house cleaning, or door-to-door salespeople). This includes the Professional Beauty Industry.
▪️𝙒𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙬𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙗𝙪𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙚𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙞𝙣𝙫𝙤𝙡𝙫𝙚 𝙘𝙡𝙤𝙨𝙚 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙡 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙘𝙩 𝙗𝙚 𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙤𝙬𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙤 𝙤𝙥𝙚𝙣?
Right now, the risk of transmission from people providing services that require close personal contact (e.g. hairdressers, manicurists, beauticians, domestic cleaners, personal trainers, gymnasiums) is too great. These businesses can resume under Alert Level 2, with appropriate health measures in place.
▪️When will R & R Re-open?
Although the government has said Level 2 would be okay with extra precautions in place. I'm still iffy about opening doors until atleast level 1 and even then I will have to put extra measures in place to keep us all safe.

Sorry for being so quiet of late guys and gals, just haven't really wanted to be anywhere near technology and negative news these past few days.
This is what I have been up to... making Jam from my blackberries, doing some gardening and just the general decluttering my owl collection, along with starting a puzzle.
What have you been doing to fill in your extra time around the house?
#keepingbusyathome #southlandnz #gettingoutside #homemadejam #mentalhealthmatters
It really sucks having to close my doors but it will only be for a short while 🤞
What have you been doing to pass the time?
Other than having a blinky migraine trying to manifest yesterday and today, I've managed to do a wee bit of gardening and chopped up some firewood.
What have you been doing?
#makingthemostofit #screwyoucovid19 #keepinghealthy #gettingoutside #thankfulfortheweather☀️ #southlandmassagetherapist #southlandnz #keepingactive
Due to the current covid-19 outbreak
I will be closing my doors for the next wee while to keep my clients and myself safe, thank you for your understanding.
I will be in touch to help reschedule any appointments asap.
My sincere apologies but our health needs to come first.
#lookingaftereachother💜💙 #thisisserious #covid_19 #keepcalmandwashyourhands
Coronavirus - Covid19 😷
As we have this nasty virus circulating I'd like to assure you of my hygiene and health and safety procedures.
As a massage therapist, I wash my hands before and after every treatment and after each client I come in contact with.
I have a strict procedure with sanitising, disinfecting and sterilising all implements I use after every client.
I wipe down all surfaces in my clinic, not just my table.
I change the towels on my treatment table after every client and these get washed and sterilised by me every weekend.
These are just a few of our procedures I have always had in place to ensure the cleanliness of my work environment.
If you have had any illness symptoms in the last 14 days or traveled to one of the highly infected countries please reschedule your appointment.
Please note that if I become unwell I will be taking serious action, this may involve moving your appointments and if serious I may have to close the clinic for the 14days.
Please stay safe and keep well.
Thank you 🙏 😊
your massage therapist,
#keepinghealthy #washyourhands #keepsouthlandhealthy

Saw this today on @sunlightensaunas page and I absolutely love it!
So true, self care is so very important.
If one doesnt make time now to look after themselves, we'll be forced to make time later.

Did you know getting a massage is thirsty work?
(Arguably for both the client AND the therapist, hehe).
By working your muscles this gets fluid pumping out of the soft tissue and into your circulatory system, where it heads toward your kidneys... to your bladder... and into the clinic loo!
Also, when your muscles are tight there is constriction in those areas, which inhibits the body's ability to flush out this waste. And, since tight muscles are probably what prompted you to make a massage appointment in the first place, chances are you’ve got some compromised circulation happening, right?!
Massage relaxes the tension, releasing the circulatory pathways and allowing nitrogenous metabolic waste to dump into the system. Drinking provides your kidneys with the water they need to effectively eliminate the newly liberated waste.
So - what's the most important thing after a massage?
Listen to your massage therapist & celebrate your newly liberated waste with a tall glass of H2O.

Hello my lovely clients!
I know how important it is to feel at your best, which is why my appointments fill up so fast! While I do my best to accommodate each and every one of you, I just want to let you know that my appointments ARE snapped up quick, and there is often a 4-7 working day wait before I can see you.
Thank you for understanding, and feel free to make your next booking through the Facebook booking service, Text or Facebook Messenger! :)

Please be super careful out there today guys... this is not even 5kms from my home.
Stay safe and look out for your neighbors, these waters may cut off a number of elderly from their home help. Please I'm begging you, check in on them.

MASSAGE Helps Recovery
Been more active than normal?
I get it.
Doing extra activity is great for your health
BUT if your body isn’t ready for it, the
result can be sore, tight muscles.
Even getting out of bed in the morning or doing head checks while driving can cause pain.
Any of this sound familiar?
Luckily massage can help. It helps muscles recover more quickly, improves flexibility
AND it makes you FEEL GREAT.
BOOK NOW for a massage so you can
get back to feeling your best.

With the first day of school for 2020 today (for some) I heard the parents sighing with relief this morning 🤣😂🤣😂🤣
Now it's time for you to get some rest and a bit of TLC.
Give us a PM, text or call to arrange some much needed "you" time.

Time and time again, I get asked, "how often should I book a massage?" or "other than feeling good/better...are there actually any benefits of getting a massage?"
Well, today I am going to spell some of the benefits out. Research shows that massage is highly effective when it comes to managing:
• High blood pressure
• Anxiety & stress
• Muscle soreness
• Chronic fatigue symptoms from the likes of Fibromyalgia and EDS
•And much much more
Touch deprivation is at an all-time high in this day and age, and given that massage is physical touch, it can alleviate a multitude of different symptoms to support you on your wellness journey.
