Where has this last year gone, since the previous Summer Newsletter?!…….. Here is this Summer 2021 Newsletter …….
I hope this post finds you and your families and friends well. An exhilarating ‘Freedom’ time for some, an anxious lifting of restrictions for others. I have to say, I ere on the cautious side of restrictions and will continue to practice in my clinic as I have done since lifting of lockdown 2020.
I want you, as a client visiting Holistic Therapy at Captain’s Den, to feel as ‘safe and comfortable’ as you can possibly be during a pandemic! If I feel confident that you are as safe as can be, then you will feel that confidence through my practice. Your time in clinic will be at a minimum with consultations continuing virtually. There is the ongoing routine of reporting a NEGATIVE Lateral Flow Test and replying to the Covid triage prior to your appointment. Wearing of a face mask, hand sanitising and temperature recording on entry to the clinic will continue.
To bring all the important information together, I have posted some links from previous blogs on this Summer 2021 Newsletter. For my regular clients, there is no change but a refresh of the information won’t harm! New clients and returning clients (post pandemic) will need to sign to acknowledge they have seen this information.
A healthy work life balance will always be good practise. While you sit at your desk reading this Summer 2021 Newsletter, be aware that your desk ergonomics are set up correctly for you! If you desk share, this check will need to be daily! Don’t be tempted to alter settings half way through the afternoon – It will be your posture that needs ‘resetting’! Take time to shuffle, move and even get up out of your chair to maintain a healthy working environment. Some stretching routines are available in my link here which I compiled from good sources back in February 2019! Incidentally, did you know that your seat in your vehicle needs to be ergonomically correct for good posture too! Check your seating before driving off! Oh and watch your posture when you are lifting, especially heavy items!
I qualified to KORE Therapy Consultant the day before we lockdown, Winter 2020. I have so many different options of treatment, ranging from Cupping, Amno Fu, Qi Gong, Tui Na Massage. These treatments are not for client personal choice but for necessity if your assessment warrants them! Let me explain through the Summer 2021 Newsletter; booking yourself in for a KORE Therapy session will start with a virtual consultation of your medical history and conditions of concern. You will be assessed in clinic and it is from the assessment, that certain treatments will be applied. Your KORE Therapy appointment is very much a bespoke session as your body receives exactly what it needs in terms of treatment to look for the root of the cause and not just treating symptoms! One example of treatment required is Cupping, which you can find further information at this link
I have recently received a new order of essential and carrier oils; the stock is back up and a good selection of aromas await you. (Don’t forget to renew your patch test if it is more than six months since your last aromatherapy massage! New clients will automatically require a patch test prior to their treatment appointment.) I have recently made a herb garden after hauling a couple of empty half whiskey barrels from Cornwall! (Marjoram to the right, going clockwise, chives, oregano, thyme, basil and lavender, which of course is a flower!)
I look forward to catching up with valued clients when they feel more confident to rebook and welcome new clients along the way. For those clients receiving regular treatment, stick with it, ‘KORE is Law’ and your body will relearn and rebalance itself!
