Our massage service with Jen Wood is available through our clubs and family sessions at The Yard Edinburgh for everyone over the age of eight. Massage is offered to parents and carers during family sessions, and to young people during clubs. Parents and carers can email us to book ahead.

All club sessions are drop-in and available to everyone over the age of eight who has completed a therapies consent form.

Jen is a trained massage and hypnotherapist offering relaxing foot, head, neck and shoulder massage. Jen practices a wide range of massage therapies including Reflexology, Shiatsu/Acupressure and Indian Head Massage, and is passionate about helping people deal with the stress in their lives. Jen has undergone the same checks as our staff and volunteers to work with children and vulnerable groups.

There is no charge for therapies at The Yard. A playworker may be able to supervise your child if you are having a massage during family session - please just ask a member of our play team staff. Unfortunately, we cannot offer this service during quiet sessions.
