May/Jun – Emotions; He-motions…and Breathe
|You probably know by now that we have had to temporarily close our salon doors due to the global Coronavirus crisis. We want to say a massive thank you to all of the support and well-wishes you have sent our way in recent times. Knowing that we have such amazing clients is keeping our spirits up and it is truly appreciated! Of course during this time there is sadness, there is anger and frustration which we all feel through this odd journey. Acknowledging and living through these feelings, letting them be and run their course is all we can do, but in order to move forward we can try to practice gratitude. Being thankful for the fine weather that has made lockdown somewhat easier, for the dose of Vitamin D from the sunshine. For the time to reflect and focus, to strengthen family bonds. As lockdown eases and we gradually filter back into society and into each others lives, we must also not lose sight of things that improved in our lives during this time and how we can keep some semblance of them going as our days pick up and get busier.|
WHEN WILL YOU REOPEN? You may have heard in the news of similar industries (physiotherapy, osteopathy etc) having July as a potential opening month. We do not fall under the same governing bodies as these therapies, so we are still waiting for instructions on when we can legally open. Please bear with us as we wait to hear, we intend to open as soon as is viable. Behind the scenes we are getting systems in place so the centre can operate safely and productively. You will notice some small changes when you return to the centre which are precautionary, within guidelines and which we are taking seriously. We need to protect you and ourselves especially as our treatments are majority contact treatments.
PLEDGE FOR A FUTURE TREATMENTMany of you have asked if there is anything you can do to help, so we wanted to let you know that you can support us by buying a voucher for a future treatment at the centre which can be redeemed when we reopen. You can also send that salon voucher to someone else and this will show them you’re supporting your local business too!Doing this will really help towards covering some costs for the duration of this crisis, helping to keep our business healthy whilst we can’t carry out treatments.
DONATE TOWARDS TREATMENTS FOR NHS WORKERS
We are also raising funds so we can give NHS workers a free treatment when we reopen our doors. We usually give 10% off treatments to all NHS workers, but this time we would like to do more. We have received messages from those working in the NHS and carers -they are feeling the pressure, both mentally and physically, looking after patients and their own family. So far we have raised £180, which will enable 5 people to benefit from a massage. If you would like to donate….any amount is fine, (seriously, every little bit helps) then please follow the link below. DONATE TO NHS FUND
