National Massage Day

Friday 16th May is National Massage Day. The day has been created by Gill Tree who is founder of the UK’s leading massage school Essentials for Health, and this year launched her Manifesto for a Pro-Touch Society. National Massage Day is aimed at helping our society understand the positive effects of touch and massage.

Touch is instinctive and natural. It is part of human nature and yet we as a society remain inhibited. We also perceive massage as a luxury rather than a necessary treatment for a healthy lifestyle.

On National Massage Day, Friday 16th May 2014 at 3pm Gill Tree is inviting you to form a conga line of people on Westminster Bridge from St Thomas’ Hospital to The Houses of Parliament to bring awareness that touch is not something to be feared, not a luxury but a necessary part of preventative health care.
