Latest Coronavirus Advice

Following the government announcement regarding restrictions for parts of the North West of England and for other areas eg. Aberdeen and the potential impacts on businesses and close contact services, these local restrictions dont mean it is not CURRENTLY suggested or recommended that massage/soft tissue therapists refrain from work.

We urge all massage and soft tissue therapists to exercise caution.

Whilst the guidance is general, the situation is fluid. GCMT will continue to monitor the situation and update advice when situations change. In the meantime please refer to the following guidance as directed through the government website on Covid19.

To avoid member queries and uncertainty, referring to the parts of government guidance, GCMT asserts the following position:

  • "People can still come inside your home for specific purposes, such as when they're doing so as part of their work, including cleaners, formal childcare providers and repair workers ... and those providing care or assistance to a vulnerable person".
  • Can I go to work? People living inside and outside of these areas can continue to travel in and out for work.
