Covid-19 TTmassage UPDATE
Hoping now things are back to normal, we still have Covid precautions in place but now back and fully operational, Welcome back!
We are only taking bookings via our online booking system, ready for opening on the 12th of April.
We shall re-open online bookings from April the 1st 2021
Hoping that we can re-open from April 12 2021 under Step 2 of the government roadmap
We will start to re-open booking on the day
Regrettably, Suffolk will enter Tier 4 from 26/12/2020 as a result we can no longer operate any massage service from this date until further notice. So sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and do hope we can operate soon once this new wave of covid gets under control.
We are scheduled to re-open on the 2nd of December - extract from government site:
In all tiers, the following businesses and venues can remain open:
personal care and close contact services such as hairdressers and barbers, beauty salons, tattoo parlours, nail salons, spas and beauty services, massage parlours and tanning salons
For now, Suffolk I believe is in Tier 2 status and we will still adhere to all Covid-19 precautions and safety measures.
Unfortunately, we are closed due to the national UK lockdown for November and hoping to re-open on the 2nd of December, we will hopefully re-open booking closer to the time.
We have also suspended all pre-pay and vouchers purchases for now.
We have now got our contact tracing Covid-19 poster, this is used to check-in using your COVID-19 track and trace app.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the app "helps us to find more people who are at risk of having the virus" that human contact tracers are unable to find.
"Everybody who downloads the app will be helping to protect themselves, helping to protect their loved ones, helping to protect their community because the more people who download it, the more effective it will be,"

The app cannot:
use your GPS location or track where you have been
be used to check or monitor if you’re self-isolating
be used by law enforcement to identify or track you
see personal information on your phone, such as your messages, address book or your phone contacts
In preparation for phase three of re-opening spa businesses, I have now attended a web course to prevent COVID-19.
We are fully operational, although with a restricted menu to offer based on government guidelines. We will continue to monitor the government advice but feel this is the new norm for a few months yet.
We cannot offer any facial massage service in accordance with government guidelines, please note we have adhered to all guidelines including
Avoiding skin to skin contact and wearing gloves
More frequent cleaning
For myself to wear a face visor and mask
Hand sanitizers available for use
Will be also keeping records of clients and share these with NHS Test and Trace where requested, to help identify people who may have been exposed to the virus.
Full details here - https://www.gov.uk/…/beauty-salons-set-to-reopen-for-some-s…
And clients who come to our premises to have treatment are fully aware of these guidelines and are happy with all the safety precautions we have taken if you do not agree with the above please do not book with us.
And also if you or someone in your household has been diagnosed with Covid19 or showing symptoms of it please also do not book.
update - 9/7/2020
GREAT NEWS Oliver Dowden (Culture Secretary - Government) said that beauticians, tanning salons, spas, and other close contact services can resume from Monday (July 13).
So fingers crossed, we can re-open then!!
But will adhere to guidelines post Covid-19 lockdown.
