I am so happy that my little salon will be open again from the 12th April but there are strict rules I have to adhere to, as set out by the FHT:
1 – Maximum of 4 customers per day to allow for an hour’s ventilation between appointments. This changes if customers from the same household are having appointments on the same day/time period. This allows for the salon to be cleaned and ventilated for you.
2 – Please wear your face mask into the shop as this is an area when posties, delivery people come into. Once inside the salon, it is your choice if you keep your face mask on, the salon is cleaned, ventilated and only myself has access. I will be wearing both a face mask and shield along with an apron which is changed between customers.
3 – Gift vouchers will be valid until the 31st December 2021 regardless of when you received them but I am not issuing vouchers for now while I get through some of the vouchers in circulation.
4 – One thing I have learnt from this whole thing that it is important for me, as a therapist, to take time out for a daily walk, enjoy being outside so I will be taking “self care” breaks each week to boost my energy levels. This way I will be calm, energised for your treatments…hopefully!!
I have been contacting everyone who had their appointments cancelled and also the customers asking for an appointment but if you would like to book, please get in touch and I will do my best to get you in as soon as possible. I am very excited to see you and smell my oils again, the salon is cleaned and ready to welcome you back as I am xx
I am writing this with the rain hitting the window, I think i can definately say that summer has ended and we are in autumn. Some may think this is a sad time but autumn is a beautiful vibrant season which often gets overlooked as we get busy for Christmas. So lets revel in Autumn.
If it important to get prepare, spend as much time as possible in the daylight to stock up on vitamin D, this helps with your mood and general health.
Being outside is very beneficial for our lymphatic system too, we are more active which means that lymph is pumped around our body clearing toxins and bringing fresh lymphocytes to fight infections.
There are many ways to boost your lymphatic system
1… be active even if thats dancing, running, gardening, just moving
2… drink water. If you are hydrated, your body is more efficient. I am a fan of hot water as this is kinder to your digestive system and flushes away toxins better
3… skin brush. You can do this by hand in the morning on dry skin before your shower. Begin at your ankles and with a sweeping motion, move up to your head. This is stimulating your circulation which again helps to fight infections as it brings fresh nutritious blood to your organs and joints
4… Use aromatherapy in your home and workplace. Make it organic aromatherapy too as this is more therapeutic and grown without pesticides
Here are our suggestions:
“help me, i’m feeling under the weather” essential oil blend
Powerful antibacterial essential oils of Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Lavender and Tangerine will help clear sinuses, ease headaches and help to fight autumns coughs and colds
We like to add 2-3 drops in bowls of water and place around your home and home office to create a wonderful scent
5… The best treatments for autumn are:
Hopi ear candles which help to remove wax plugs which prevent your sinuses clearing naturally. You can also have the Sinus Massage which involves the ear candles, reflexology and a lymphatic facial massage
Warm Bamboo massage warms your muscles and eases toxins which make you feel achy so you move less. See our offer for October
Holistic Facial nourishes your skin plus we use “meridian tapping” to boost your energy.
Lymphatic drainage massage (and reflexology lymph drainage) is the perfect treatment to get your immune system at its best. If you struggle with seasonal coughs and colds, this is definately one for you. See our November offer
If you struggle with SAD, there are plenty of things to do now
1… make the most of getting outside
2…make a mood board for what you want to do in 2021
3…use aromatherapy to help relax you
“help me have mindful of calm” essential oil blend uses organic essential oils of Frankincense, Geranium Bourbon and Lavender to ease feelings of anxiety, stress and being over whelmed
So lets make this Autumn as vibrant as the colours and as scented as we can.
