Telephone: 07827 975 440

Canonbury Natural Health Clinic is located close to Islington Town Hall. It is between Gem restaurant and The Sampler wine merchant. It is a five minute walk from Highbury Corner and near a bus stop for routes 4, 19, 30 and 43.


Home visits (for women only) are available on Sundays and during the week (apart from Mondays).
Because I offer home visits, I may not always be available for same day appointments at my therapy room, but do call me to check as I may be able to fit you in. Obviously, booking in advance is the best way to ensure you get an appointment.
Thursday evening appointments are always at my therapy room from 5pm to 9pm
Saturday appointments are always at my therapy room from 11am to 5pm
Appointments at my therapy room are available, depending on my availability, from Tuesday to Saturday.

Tanja Drayton, Massage Therapist at The Bodywork Studio in Islington

Tanja Drayton has 12 years of experience in Sports & Remedial Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and Pregnancy & Postnatal Massage and is qualified and insured. Tanja trained in the UK and is a member of the IPTI professional body as well as the Islington Chamber of Commerce. Tanja tailors your massage to ensure you get the massage you need, whether it's to ease discomfort and tension or to treat an injury. Your safety is important, especially now that so many complementary health practitioners have started offering pseudo-science in place of evidence-based therapies. At The Bodywork Studio, you will never be told to drink extra water after a massage, that massage releases toxins in your body or given a so-called healing therapy.

Discount for People Working in Performing Arts

If you are an actor or musician or have a full time job in the performing arts, I have one appointment slot a week that is available at a discounted price of £30. This is a 50 minute sports massage on Thursday evenings at 5pm. This is the only time I am able to offer this discount. Please note, proof will be required of eligibility.

Cancellation Policy

Please note there is a 24 hour policy for all cancellations or changes to your appointment. The Bodywork Studio reserves the right to charge full payment if this is not adhered to.

New Bath Products Range

You can buy soaps for children that have no nasty chemicals (they are SLS free, which means they do not contain sodium lauryl syphate). The soaps are vegetable glycerine based and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. You can also buy fizzy bath balls containing no SLS. They are 6cm in diameter (smaller than Lush's bath bombs). New products are being added to the range all the time. The latest is the Dinosaur Egg Fizzy Bath Ball, a 6cm bath ball with a little toy dinosaur in the centre. See the full range on Facebook.
