New products The Bodywork Studio will be launching a range of fun soaps for children and quality bath products for grown ups. All soaps are free of SLS and SLES. The list of available products will be growing. The focus is on quality, hand made products.

Valentines Day Buy a 125g heart shaped soap for £3. Available to buy at your appointment or have one hand delivered in the Islington or Central London area. Details are available on The Bodywork Studio’s Facebook page, along with images, fragrance and colour options.

The flu vaccination: Tanja gets the flu vaccine every year in order to protect vulnerable members of the community (including clients and pregnant clients) from catching the virus from her. This is the reason why it is important for as many people as possible to get the flu jab. If you are not vulnerable, by getting the vaccination, you are helping someone who is by not catching the virus.

Home visit massage is available for women only. Prices start at £65 for 60 minutes, depending on your location. All other appointments take place at the therapy room on Upper Street, Islington.

Discount for People in the Performing Arts

There is one appointment slot available at a discount (£30 for 50 minutes) for actors, musicians and anyone working full time in the performing arts. This is at 5pm on Thursdays for a 50 minute sports massage. It’s the only time I am able to offer this discount. Please note, proof will be required of eligibility.

Payment by cash, credit or debit card or by PayPal.

Please note, missed appointments will be charged at the full price. If you have missed an appointment, I reserve the right to refuse future bookings from you, unless payment for the missed appointment has been made.


The Bodywork Studio is located in Canonbury Natural Health Centre on Upper Street, Islington, north London. It is near the Town Hall and between Gem restaurant and The Sampler Wine Merchant. Highbury & Islington station (Victoria Line, Rail and Overground) is 5 minutes away and Angel station (Northern Line) is about 15 minutes walk. There are buses from Angel if you prefer not to walk (bus numbers 4, 19, 30 and 43).
