We are proud to announce our support for Haven House Children's Hospice, one of six London children’s hospices which support children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families in London.
This charity offers specialist nursing and healthcare on-site at the hospice based in Woodford Green and also in the comfort of the children's own homes. In addition to medical services, the hospice also offers a wide range of additional activities including music therapy, yoga and physiotherapy - as well as creating fun environments in which children can simply have some fun with toys and playing with others.
Haven House also offers families a range of complementary therapies, such as facial massages and reflexology. These can help ease some of the strains that are so often felt by the parents and siblings of a child with a life-limiting condition. Issues such as stress and anxiety or loneliness are common.
The Massage Rooms has helped massage people better from all walks of life in the very same areas of London as covered by Haven House for over 10 years. As we have often said, real massage is about using touch and empathy together in harmony to help others feel better. Massage is of course a physical treatment but also, importantly, a therapy which can make a huge positive impact on mental health. Our therapists are chosen with these particular qualities in mind.
We are immensely happy to join the Haven House 100 Club. We pledge our support going forward and hope to contribute to helping some of the younger members of our respective communities. For anyone reading this and interested in also offering a contribution, you can visit our dedicated donation page at Haven House by clicking the 100 Club logo below.
Haven House Children's Hospice is based in Woodford Green and helps children from all over North London and North East London. Specifically the areas covered are: Barking and Dagenham, Barnet, City and Hackney, Enfield, Haringey, Havering, Islington, Redbridge, Waltham Forest, Newham as well as parts of Hertfordshire and West Essex. Many of the therapists on The Massage Rooms platform also live and work in these areas.
