The massage was great Mandy, and being able to do it from home is certainly a selling point !

Mandy provided nutritional advice and support on my challenge to become an Ironman. I highlighted nutrition as being the biggest single obstacle and worked with Mandy to devise a nutrition plan to meet the demands of my training and aid my recovery. I never felt nutritionally depleted during the event which was amazing and I attribute this fully to Mandy’s expert advice. Thank you very much.

Fantastic massage from Mandy. She sorted out all my knots, aches and pains, leaving me feeling relaxed and ready to face the world!   Highly recommended

Coronavirus

The health and safety of my clients is my priority whilst concerns over coronavirus (Covid-19) are high.

 

Appointments are now available at Twickenham Body Health, Room 1, Faith Hair and Beauty. I have carried out a risk assessment of the new clinic and precautions are in place to mitigate the transmission of Covid-19 and to keep you safe when you come for an appointment.

Things will be different. All will be explained clearly during the consultation process. In brief though:

Once you have booked your appointment the consultation for massage and covid-19 prescreening will take place over the phone or online prior to your appointment. 

  • Consultation and Covid prescreening forms (click on buttons below) need to be signed and emailed by return 

  • allow 15-30 minutes for prescreening

 

When you attend your appointment health and safety precautions will be in place to keep us all safe.

 

Attending a face to face appointment (45 minutes) please follow these steps:

 

  • Please wear a face mask

  • Please wash your hands prior to your appointment or on arrival for at least 20 seconds

  • Hand washing facilities and hand sanitiser will be available

  • Your temperature will be taken when you arrive

  • Try to avoid touching anything unnecessarily

  • Catch coughs and sneezes in tissues, bin them, then wash your hands for 20 seconds

  • If you become unwell during an appointment inform me immediately

  • Please bring your own water and pen (I am not permitted to offer you water at the moment)

  • Payment in advance will be necessary - PayPal.me or bank transfer

  • Follow up and aftercare advice will take place over the phone or online 15-30 minutes

 

Time will be allowed for thorough cleaning and airing before and after each client. Contact with others minimised. All linens and towels will be replaced for each client. I will be wearing a face shield for your protection.

New ways for all of us to get used to.

 

If you feel unwell, develop a cough or fever, or have been diagnosed with coronavirus or been asked to self isolate after your prescreening and before your appointment please let me know so I can reschedule your appointment. 

Do not come to your appointment. I am happy to rearrange your appointment. 

 

If you cannot attend or wish to reschedule for another reason please call me as soon as possible, on: 07747 722 171 

 

Consultations for Nutrition, Self Care and Stretching, Pain or Injury Management can be held via a media platform such as Zoom, to suit you.

Call me to schedule an appointment : 07747 722 171 or email me : mandy.greenbanana@gmail.com 

 

This situation is still very fluid. I am keeping up to date and following the guidelines set out by the UK Government, World Health Organisation and Public Health England and BBC News and my professional associations.

 

Many thanks, keep safe and well and stay positive and if possible help those less fortunate than you in this uncertain time.

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.

  

It can be frustrating if you get an injury during training, to hit the wall while taking part in an event or simply not fit into your favourite jeans!

  

My philosophy is to look after the body inside and out and as such, I help clients achieve their ambitions. This can range from simply eating more healthily to running a marathon or preparing for an event.

I trained in Sports Massage Therapy at St Marys, Twickenham, and continue to develop my skills and knowledge with the Jing school of Advanced Massage training. I am a Jing Method™ advanced clinical massage therapist qualified to treat a range of chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions. These include lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, frozen shoulder, sports injuries, knee pain, ligament and tendon issues, whiplash, carpal tunnel and many other ongoing injury or pain conditions.The Jing Method™ is a partnership between you, the client, and me (your therapist) where a treatment plan is designed to increase your mobility, agility, and joint range of motion (ROM), whilst focussing on decreasing your daily pain over 1-6 treatments. The techniques I use include fascial work, trigger point therapy, acupressure, stretching and tailored self care.

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

  

 I have worked with Richmond Rugby club mens and womens teams and now work with the England Ladies O65s hockey team. 

My main base is in Twickenham but I also travel to clients within a 10 mile radius (please call for further information).

  

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

  

Mandy

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!
