MASSAGE therapists are preparing to reopen as soon as next week for those stressed out residents longing for a massage.
After some confusion as to whether Tammy's Thai Massage could open its doors, co-owner Robert Baliva said the two stores will be back to business with slight restrictions in place of course.
Temperature testing, a standard coronavirus questionnaire and contact tracing will now be the routine for every person booked in for a massage, he said.
Mr Baliva said his employees will wear masks and the same for client depending on the type of massage.
He said the massage therapists have completed the state's coronavirus prevention test in preparation of returning to work on Monday.
"They will have the knowledge on how to do massages that are in line with the health and safety standards," he said.
Beauty services, nail salons and tattoo parlours are still in the dark about when it's back to businesses.
Although Wagga's The Style Bar has reopened its hair services, the lights are still off in its beauty room much to the dismay of its regulars.
Hairstylist Jacqe Sunderland said the business was prepared return all services once the state government gives the green light, which will be news that will see the phones "going off the hook".
She said employees were already turning down many requests for beauty treatments.
Despite high demand, Ms Sunderland said there will be less appointments available to stay in line with distancing guidelines.

"When beauty services come back it is about sanitising everything that's possible before a person comes in," she said.
"So one client at a time and no extra services and limiting it to two people in the salon every time," she said.
Ms Sunderland said they want clients to download the Covidsafe app to help the salon's employees. She said contact tracing will continue to ensure the safety of everyone coming in and out of the business.
"Just as long as everyone respects that we have to follow that through with all these rules in place and then we can all get our treatments done, which will be good," she said.
