Thank you to all of you who have assisted me on the journey, for without you ALL, I wouldnt have a shot at making this happen. Another day of being proud to be a Southlander and a Kiwi. ❤
500 people came through our door today at Aurora College's gymnasium. Everyone's Smiles, Hugs, Laughter, Thankfulness and Happy Tears summed up this beautiful Sunday afternoon.
Event #11 will be held on Sunday 28th Feb 2021.
hello everyone hope you all are keeping safe and well during this lock down. As you're well aware were in level 4 and as for human movement massage, don't know when i will be reopening for business. will have to wait till monday next week to hear from PM about the outcome. Prior to the lock down i was very excited to go out to Bluff to support the kaupapa of Awarua whanau services at tri whanau and offer my sports massage services to all tangata - competitors and supporters.
Nonetheless, once we are out of level 4 and down to level 2 (somewhere down the line) i will reopen and take on clients once more. Be kind, be safe and remember He waka ake noa "we're all in this together"
