From DANI O’CONNOR of Therapies with Dani…

A campaign organised by Massage Warehouse means massage, physical and complementary therapists – such as Therapies with Dani in Goodwick – are donating treatments to NHS workers after Covid-19.

Massage and complementary therapists across the UK – including Therapies With Dani, Goodwick – have come together for #MassageTherapistsTogether, a campaign to donate free treatments after Covid-19 to say thank you to our NHS heroes. From 1 September NHS frontline workers will be able to register for a free treatment of their choice with a therapist in their local area.

Complementary therapists from Edinburgh to Exeter are signing up to donate free treatments. From massage to reflexology to reiki, NHS workers can use an interactive map to find a therapist near them. It’s easy to use – they only need to type in their postcode to find therapists nearby who are kindly donating treatments. Currently, more than 1,200 therapists have signed up to donate up to five free treatments each, donating more than 5,000 free treatments, an incredible offer.

Professional organisations, such as the Federation of Holistic Therapies (FHT) and the General Council for Soft Tissue Therapies (GCMT) are both backing the campaign and helping organiser Massage Warehouse spread the word. As a result, the campaign has been well received by both the public and the complementary therapy industry as a whole.

Dani O’Connor said: “It just feels good to be able to give something back to the hard workers of our NHS… and my small way of saying thank you and reminding they are appreciated so much. It feels great to be part of such a massive national campaign to give thanks to our frontline. Having treated NHS staff through the years, I know what a stressful time they have and how badly then need a bit of TLC, so having this opportunity to give back is wonderful and speak all thanks to Massage Warehouse for enabling it to happen.”

As therapists themselves, the team at Massage Warehouse were touched by the heartfelt displays of public gratitude and felt inspired to use their skills to give something tangible back as a thank you to our NHS workers for their incredible sacrifices during the pandemic.

Greg Coughlan, founder of Massage Warehouse, adds: “There are countless stories about life on the frontlines of Covid-19 and the NHS staff working tirelessly to turn the tide. We are all aware the pressure staff are under is immense, and of the physical and mental stress this will have on their long-term health. We wanted to do our bit to help. The #MassageTherapistsTogether campaign will provide a fantastic opportunity for NHS Frontline workers to experience a free treatment while being repaid (at least a little) for their hard work and dedication as our nation’s unsung heroes.”

During the 30-day campaign, NHS doctors and nurses can contact a therapist to book their free treatment. Therapists may not return to work straight away so the treatment does not have to take place in the 30 days, but in order to take advantage of this offer, NHS workers will need to contact their local therapist during the campaign period. Massage Warehouse is the matchmaker and facilitator of the campaign. Any complementary therapy treatments will be provided by trained therapists, who will be responsible for delivery of the treatment. NHS workers will need to show their NHS ID to claim the free treatment.
