The sessions will be offered twice a week on a drop-in or pre-booked basis on Wednesday and Friday 12:30–13:30


Candace is a certified practitioner of massage. She offers a neck, shoulder and upper back massage where the person would sit fully clothed at a table top head cradle and receive a 15-minute massage on these areas. Massage of the neck, shoulder and upper back has been shown to decrease stress and aid in general relaxation and wellbeing.
