Apollo Massage Therapy is opening a temporary shop in Yate Shopping Centre for the next couple of months to promote its name and services.
As from the end of November Apollo which is owned Chloe Creed, a former health care worker, will be operating out of 18 North Walk where it will be offering sports massage therapy and first aid training.
Andrew Lowrey, Yate Shopping Centre Manager: “I met Chloe at a recent Sodbury & Yate Business Association meeting where she approached me about use of a vacant unit to help her business. We are always willing to help local businesses and organisations if possible whether it is promoting their business or the services they offer.”
Chloe Creed: “I currently operate a mobile service visiting homes or workplaces specialising in sports, pregnancy and cancer massage but I want to increase the general awareness of my services.
“One of the key messages I am trying to get over is that sports massage is not just for active sports people but can be used to address many day-to-day health issues and can be far more beneficial than many people appreciate.
“In addition, from my previous experience, I will be offering either onsite or offsite first aid training to businesses and organisations.”
Yate Shopping Centre is asset managed by Ellandi and the property management is headed by Cushman & Wakefield.
Fantastic news - not only do we have one new Chair - we have two!
