The general attitude is changing from seeing massage as a pampering luxury to a necessity in people’s hectic lifestyles, and it is becoming part of their regular health regime. That is why I have started a petition to get massage offered on the NHS, especially for musculoskeletal issues and pain management. As documented in the media lately; the over- subscription in the NHS of medication that too often has bad side effects, is ineffective and addictive, or the use of more invasive treatments like injections or operations are causing more problems than solutions and are costing both the NHS and society dearly. Many people are very reluctant to go for these medical options, but are given no natural or ‘hands-on’ alternatives if they go to their GP.” “As the NHS does not offer massage, people cannot claim massage on their health insurance, so the NHS’s practice thus has a wider impact on people’s health choices. Opening more people’s eyes to the efficacy of massage is my passion and also my ‘mission’ in life now, so I am trying in every way possible to get more signatures supporting my petition. Hopefully with more people power behind me I will eventually be able to change the attitudes in the NHS and enable more people to benefit from this effective treatment.” Moving forward, Tatina remains committed to driving change for massage therapists and continuing to offer clients the same exceptional level of support and service that they have come to rely upon. She achieved the ‘LUX Excellence Award for Sports Massage Therapy - London’ last year.
