A brand new massage studio conveniently located above the Age Exchange centre.
I am a qualified Raynor Massage Therapist. Raynor Massage originates from Australia and is a form of massage, which focuses on the muscular and subtle body energy systems. It has evolved by combining many massage traditions, including; Swedish, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue, Reflexology and Thai Massage.
Massage is an integral part of maintaining our health and wellbeing. When we devote time to looking after ourselves, we feel rejuvenated, healthy and rebalanced. I deeply believe massage has a positive ripple effect and, in our renewed state, enables us to radiate harmony to others.
Please join me for a free hand massage on 10 March. This is now a regular slot with a 20 mins free hand massage service every Tuesday between 2-4pm in the AE café.

Our Caring Together Service has re-opened for face-to-face groups. We know the people we support have had a difficult time with long periods of shielding and without the usual support and connections that they need. We have Covid secure guidelines in place to make sure we keep people safe as they return and groups are running on slightly smaller numbers. Restarting our groups is essential in helping people to rebuild connections and to engage in creative activity.
We accept new referrals, but it is essential to contact us on 0208 380 9105 or email Aga
