Coronavirus update - Tier 4 lockdown - restrictions are beginning to ease. The latest announcement on April 5th 2021 allows close-contact services such as hairdressers, nail salons and massage therapists to go back to work.

From Monday April 12th I will be able to offer face to face hands-on massage appointments.

Online zoom eHealth sessions (designed to complement hands-on sessions and include mobilisations, muscle tension release, acupressure, stretching and self care tips) are always available.

 

Nutrition consultations for weight management and sports nutrition are also available and can be held via video call such as zoom, microsoft teams, WhatsApp.

 

Protocols required for Covid-19 and everyone's safety apply as follows:

Prior to your appointment a C19 prescreening and GDPR form will need to be completed and returned. When you book an appointment a form will be automatically sent to you.

 

A consultation will be carried out via video platform. It is important to be visible as I will need to assess your range of movement. 

Payment should be made prior to the face to face appointment. Method of payment can be organised during the prescreening.

For the appointment:

Please wear a mask

Please bring your own drinking water, a pen and 2 large towels.

I will be wearing PPE - face mask, visor, apron.

Appointments will remain 45 minutes long. It is important to keep to time for client safety and allow the clinic room to be ventilated and cleaned between clients.  

 

Any aftercare advice will be communicated in detail over video platform such as zoom.

This page will be updated as and when more details are released.

Please stay safe and look after yourselves.

ABOUT ME

Hi,

  

I'm Mandy, founder of Green Banana Nutrition & Massage.

   

    The idea behind Green Banana was born out of my passion for health, sport and nutrition. As a sports enthusiast, I enjoy hockey, tennis, golf, running, yoga, skiing and catching the occasional wave! I have taken part in the London Marathon, open water swimming and triathlon. I have recently been selected for the England Masters hockey squad 2020.

  

My philosophy is to look after the body inside and out. This can range from simply eating more healthily to running a marathon or preparing for an event.

 

Pain can be very frustrating.  Whether you have an injury or a chronic pain condition, let me help you recover.

 

I am a Jing Method™ advanced clinical massage therapist, trained at the Jing School of Massage, qualified to treat a range of chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions. 

 

These include low back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, frozen shoulder, sports injuries, knee pain, ligament and tendon issues, whiplash, carpal tunnel, temporomandibular pain and many other ongoing injury or pain conditions.

 

The Jing Method™ is a partnership between you, the client, and me (your therapist) where we agree a treatment plan which focusses on decreasing your daily pain whilst improving your joint range of movement (ROM) and ability to carry out daily activities over 6 treatments. 

 

The techniques I use include fascial work, muscle trigger point therapy, acupressure point therapy, stretching and self care tailored to you.

 

I am passionate about health and your physical and emotional needs are central to my approach. I am committed to working alongside you to get the results you need.

I am a qualified nutritionist and sports nutritionist offering tailor made nutrition advice and support for you.

  

I work with individual clients and I have worked with Richmond Rugby club mens and women's teams and now work with the England Ladies O65s hockey team.

 

My Twickenham Body Health clinic room is in Strawberry Hill, Twickenham. I am able to treat people from my home too. I can carry out nutrition consultations over Zoom, WhatsApp and FaceTime.

 

I believe good nutrition and massage support the body and mind, giving you a happier and healthier quality of life 😊

I’ve had Mandy work on me several times now. Mandy is really quick to identify the problem knotty spots & knows just what to do to tackle them. She has a really calming manner and hands/ forearms that work magic, applying just the right, satisfying amount of pressure that you know it's doing good. Writing this now reminds me I need to book another session!
