Hi, welcome to Pressure Sensitive.  My name is Tim Richardson and I am a BTEC Level 5 Soft Tissue Therapist.  I have recently relocated to Gloucestershire and will be relaunching my business early in 2022.  I help my clients with therapeutic treatments to reduce pain, improve movement and nurture relaxation.  I also offer colleague wellbeing services to local businesses.   If you want my advice, to book a treatment, enquire about corporate services or support for a sporting challenge, I'd love to hear from you.

Covid-19: The Return to Work

An equal mix of face to face and online treatment provision

We're back!  The UK government gave permission for "close contact businesses" to resume hands-on client work from July 13th.  Our professional associations and insurance companies have agreed on the safety protocols required to minimise the risk of virus transmission.  These safety protocols include:-

  • Advance Covid-19 screening of all clients

  • Additional screening on appointment day

  • Clients in "high risk" groups who have been shielding will need to seek GP consent

  • NB Clients who have had Covid-19 and were hospitalised or put on medication, I am not willing to treat you at the present time, I feel the risks associated with blood clotting are too high and needing more research.

  • Clients to wear face coverings throughout

  • Therapist to wear face mask & visor.

  • Clients and therapist to engage in hand washing / sanitising before and after

  • Full sanitisation of treatment room surfaces and equipment between clients

  • Clients to be escorted to and from reception to minimise surface contact in communal areas of the building.

  • Payments to be made using contactless technologies wherever possible


With the risk of future lockdowns very real, I intend to dedicate 3 days / week to face to face treatments and spend the rest of the week developing a broader range of online and B2B services e.g monthly memberships and live self-care workshops. 

For those people who continue to be unable or uncomfortable with accessing hands-on treatments, the online options can be found on my Telehealth page.  A socially distanced treatment / self-care session is also possible.
