Every year Brighton’s own Jing Advanced Massage Training creates an outdoor massage and yoga extravaganza to raise money for a local charity. This year the day will raise funds for Brighton’s Domestic Abuse charity – Rise.

Our Vision: Freedom from abuse and violence

Our Mission:

Bi-sexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI), children, young people and families who have been impacted by domestic and sexual abuse and violence.

Our values:

Ø Respect- RISE values the individual, their experience and their opinions. RISE reinforces their sense of self-worth and recognizes their strengths and freedoms.
Ø Independence- RISE fosters a sense of personal responsibility in people, giving them the confidence to make their own decisions to live their lives free from domestic violence

Ø Equality- RISE ensures that services are developed to meet the needs of all people using its service, regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, disability, religion and class.

RISE believes that freedom from abuse and violence is a basic human right.

We are committed to our mission and work to ensure that individuals and communities understand and act to end abuse against women, children and young people.

Please note for massages

  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your booking, so we can ensure smooth changeovers.
  • Unfortunately we cannot provide a changing room for massage treatments therefore we ask that clients to please remember that this is a community clinic, up to 30 people are being treated at the same time in the same room. Our therapists are highly trained professionals who will do everything to maintain each clients modesty.
  • This is a fundraiser so once you have paid the funds for the massage, it goes into the big campaign pot and we cannot give you the money back.
  • If you can’t come for the massage, you can either send a friend, or let us know as soon as you can and latest 48 hours in advance, so we can open the slot to somebody else.

Can’t join us? Please share our social media posts and emails to others who might also contribute; we would love that! Are you a Jing therapist who can’t join us on the day but wants to be a part of this massive charity outreach day? Watch this space for how you can help from your own clinics…
