Sports Massage Therapy is now seen as an essential health care service and can remain open throughout the second lockdown.
This is a huge move for the industry as the past 20 years Sports Massage has been seen as a ‘spa’ service and segregated from our follow Physio’s and Osteopaths. Now Sports Therapists of a Level 4 or Level 5 qualification are seen on the same level and are able to remain open for the second Covid19 Lockdown for healthcare purposes.
To remain Covid Secure and keep in line with government guidelines there are some new measures that must be put into place.
