I'm looking for somewhere in London where I can book a proper massage as a birthday present for my 6yo daughter.

Somewhere "naice".

Can anyone suggest anywhere?

That's not middle class; it's deranged.

Nah, middle class would be a massage for the 6 year old's pony.

I think you might have an issue with finding someone insured to massage a child...

Do children stay still long enough?

Not a middle class question, but a stupid one.

Hhahhahhahha very funny. No one in Their right mind would massage a child.

That's not middle class, it's stupidity

Why is that middle class? The chavviest person I know dies this sort of thing with her daughter.

I agree it's doubtful anyone would massage a child anyway.

Don't know Polly, you could try SS? They might take an interest hmm

Agree, that's not middle class. It's just odd.

She's a minor so most places wouldn't do it. I wouldn't. (Beauty therapist) although you can book pamper parties where they do hair, manicure/pedicure.

BeaufortBelle Thu 03-Mar-16 18:51:23

I think there might be people who live under the famous bridges who's do it.

pollyandme Thu 03-Mar-16 18:51:42

Deranged? Oh. I honestly thought it was just horribly pretentious.

Yes, she's 6. She's always loved massages - since a baby. I give her back rubs often and she loves them, but as I'm a single working mum of two they don't last very long and frankly I'm shit at it.

So I thought a proper back massage would be a lovely birthday present for her - followed by tea just her and I for once.

We don't have a pony. [Breathes proper, working class sigh of relief.]

Yeah, good luck with that OP grin

pollyandme Thu 03-Mar-16 18:53:13

Is it weird? Really?

ExplodingCarrots Thu 03-Mar-16 18:53:58

I'm a massage therapist. All places I've worked have had a 16+ policy .

ExplodingCarrots Thu 03-Mar-16 18:54:32

I think it's a bit strange op, sorry

The woman I go to at neals yard does massage for children - I think it's a lovely idea and my 6 yr old DS would love it! Best to just ring a few and ask.

LonnyVonnyWilsonFrickett Thu 03-Mar-16 18:54:59

Beauty therapists aren't insured for children under 14 or 16. Which was the tactic I used to wrestle the local beauty parlour's massage voucher out of DS hands when he won it in the school raffle...

Try a yoga group, or mindfulness for kids?

Wheresthattomoibabber Thu 03-Mar-16 18:55:37

Neals yard in Bristol btw. Think it depends on the type of massage.

Yes a massage for a little girl is slightly weird no place would offer pamper sessions like that I don't think
