The Bodywork Studio is based at:

Room Two, Canonbury Natural Health Clinic
265 Upper Street
Islington N1 2UQ

You can also book a home visit in the London area (women only). For home visits, a comfortable massage cushion set is placed on your bed. This has a face hole so you can lie face down and it can also accommodate your bump, if you are pregnant.


You can book appointments with Tanja Drayton at the Upper Street location on:

Mondays and Fridays: 5pm to 8pm
Tuesdays to Fridays: 12pm to 5pm
Saturdays: 12pm to 6pm
Sundays: 12pm to 6pm

Home visit appointments are available Tuesday to Friday and on Sundays during the daytime and evenings. Prices for home visits in the Islington area are at the full price on the Prices page. If you live further away, there may be an extra charge.

To book an appointment or for more information, please contact Tanja on 07827 975 440, or send a text or email tanja.drayton@gmail.com.

I am a strong believer in science. My work is grounded in the study of anatomy and physiology, not “healing” or “energy balancing”. There are some massage myths that get rehashed by complementary therapists, for example, that it detoxes you or that you need to drink lots of water after a massage. Neither of these are necessarily true. I am working on a project to try to debunk some of the bad science and educate people about how their bodies work. If you are a professional in the healthcare field and would like to be involved or want more information, please contact me.
