Open under the current protection framework for Covid-19

At Balance, I am open and operating under the current government protection framework (traffic light system) to manage the risk of Covid-19 in our communities.

As a customer, you will be required to present your 'My Vaccine Pass' on arrival to your session. This will allow me to work during Green, Orange and Red (with public health requirements in place).

To help ensure your safety and to allow us to operate at the requirements for this framework, I am putting into place these measures:

  • Please scan in or sign in on entry
  • Hand sanitiser available for your use at reception
  • Please keep a 2m distance in the waiting area
  • Immune and anti-septic essential oil spray used to clear rooms before and after each client
  • Daily cleaning of door handles, handrails, surfaces and bathrooms
  • Head rest covers are sprayed with immune essential oils to help protect you and changed between clients
  • Rigorous hand washing procedures before and after each treatment
  • Clean towels and blankets for your comfort and protection. I add tea tree essential oil in with each hot wash
  • I will only work when feeling healthy and well
  • If feeling unwell at all (ie. sore throat, fever, cold, cough) I will stay at home and let you know in advance of your appointment, and ask you to do the same
  • My Vaccine Pass - at the start of your session I will ask to sight your vaccine pass and make a note for my records.
  • For you - masks are recommended but not required. This is your choice, however for massage I find it's impractical to wear a mask during your treatment, as they reduce breathing capacity and the relaxation effects of the massage.
  • For me - during Green and Orange - it's up to you if you'd like me to wear a mask during your treatment. During Red - as a practitioner, I am required to wear a mask.
  • I am leaving 30 minutes between clients to air the room and spray, clean surfaces  for your protection
  • For un-vaccinated clients, I don't as yet know how I can support you for an in-person session whilst we are in Orange or Red. However, I am available for online Zoom sessions if you are interested in Emotional Release Therapy. Please do get in contact directly to register your interest and I'll keep in touch regarding any updates on providing in-person sessions for you in the future.
  • I offer an non-prejudice, loving and safe space for all people

He aha te huarahi ~ I runga, I te tika, te pono, me te aroha

What is the pathway ~ it is doing what is right with integrity and compassion

May we all stay safe and be well

Nature Sense

Connect to yourself in nature with a guided exploration through the senses to help ground, connect to the earth and the elements.

Massage therapy & Bodywork

I invite you to receive all that you need to replenish your body, mind and spirit. My massage therapy style is intuitive, gentle, strong and deeply nourishing. Relaxing therapeutic massage can support the body to come back to a state of wholeness and wellbeing.

This is your time to deeply let go and connect back to yourself.

I work from a lovely quiet studio located at Balance, Buxton Square, upstairs in the Farmers Arcade, Nelson Central. It's easy to park and close to all amenities.

Marcia is amazing! I have had lots of massage and body work done in the past and she rates up there with the best!
