COVID – 19

Please refrain from massage therapy if you are feeling unwell with coughs, shortness of breath and exhibiting signs and symptoms of tiredness, body aches, chills and fever. Please contact your General Practitioner (GP) by phone AHEAD of your visit or phone the Healthline dedicated to Covid – 19 at 0800 358 5453

We will get through by staying calm, rational, not touching our eyes and nose, coughing and sneezing into our elbows, washing our hands with soap and placing ourselves in isolation in accordance with the guidelines at health.govt.nz
