Please read our COVID-19 Update, especially if you have received your COVID-19 vaccination recently. Continue to scan the QR Code at the front door before you come in, and contact us if you're unwell and need to reschedule. If you have travelled to Australia and were in Melbourne, or elsewhere in the Victoria state after 11 May, please ensure that you have followed the directive issued by the NZ Government and get a COVID-19 test if required. Please do NOT come in for massage if you have chosen not to follow the directive.
