Refer a Friend Promotion

How much do you enjoy your treatments?

Many of you recognise the benefits of coming regularly for Reiki or reflexology treatments, but how do you fancy just paying half price?

All I ask is that you ‘refer a friend’ ie recommend me to someone you know.  When you enjoy something as much as your relaxing treatment, it seems a kindness to share it with your friends.  And how about family or colleagues, parents from the school gate or a friend on Facebook.  Don’t worry if your friends aren’t local, Distance Reiki can be done wherever they live – I am currently working effectively with people who live 80 miles from where I am.  Find out more about Distance Reiki here.

We all come into contact with people who are stressed or need some time out, so please let them know how your Reiki or reflexology session helps you.  This year has been difficult for all of us in one way, shape or form.  It has brought out emotions in us that we didn’t expect and has challenged our coping mechanisms.  This in turn has upset our usual balance and equilibrium and made us look at things differently.  This is of course, not always a bad thing but it takes a little getting used to and sometimes we need some support.  The treatments I offer not only relax the body, but can also ease the mind and soothe the emotions.

So how does the refer a friend reward work?

  • Firstly pass my details on to your friend

COVID-19 Risk Assessment and Commitment

Following the announcement by the Government on Thursday 9th July, We are delighted that Medulla Holistic Therapies can start seeing clients face to face again for hands on treatments.COVID-19 risk assessment - staying covid secure  This COVID-19 Risk Assessment shows my commitment to keeping my clients and myself and family safe.

Obviously keeping you and us safe is of paramount importance and so there will be some changes to the way appointments and treatments are carried out.  This will include reduced chat time and increased PPE as well as a health questionnaire before each and every appointment.  I will ask you to not attend your appointment if you or any of your household have any of the COVID-19 symptoms, to wear your own face covering and put it on before entering the house and to take care not to touch anything before you enter the treatment room as a way of protecting us all.

Please read the Risk Assessment and Commitment below that I undertake to protect you and then please also read the new client protocol which advises what you and we should do to prevent the virus from spreading.

I have taken my guidance from the UK Reiki Federation as well as the Government’s website www.gov.uk

If you have any questions regarding my statements or changes to your treatment then please do contact me here.

I have removed the rugs, soft furnishings and many decorative items to ensure all surfaces in the treatment room are easy to clean and sanitise.
I will only be using the treatment couch (without the fabric cover) as it is easier to sanitise before and after each client. The small stool will also be included in this process.
The pillow coverings, blankets, flannels and towels will be changed and washed after each client.
I will wear a face covering, a visor and a disposable apron for all treatments.  I will wear gloves for Reiki but not reflexology.
I will wash my hands immediately before and after each treatment without touching anything between the sink and the treatment room and drying my hands on paper towel.
I have to keep your records and agree to share a few details with NHS Track and Trace if they contact me if one of my other clients develops symptoms.
I have a responsibility to inform the local health authority if you tell me that you develop symptoms within seven days of visiting my treatment room.
On the morning of each treatment I will text you a health questionnaire at around 8am, please copy and paste it into your reply with you answers.  I will not be able to see you if you have not done this.

Protocol for clients to ensure safer treatments

Following the announcement by the Government on Thursday 9th July, We are delighted that Medulla Holistic Therapies can start seeing clients face to face again for hands on treatments. picture of feet receiving reflexology This protocol for safer treatments sets out how we can do it.

And so we return to hands-on treatments again after the complete lockdown to control the spread of coronavirus, however the virus and COVID-19 has not gone away.  Obviously keeping you and us safe is of paramount importance and so there will be some changes to the way appointments and treatments are carried out.

Our protocol for safer treatments will include reduced chat time and increased PPE as well as a health questionnaire before each and every appointment.  I will ask you to not attend your appointment if you or any of your household have any of the COVID-19 symptoms, to wear your own face covering and put it on before entering the house and to take care not to touch anything before you enter the treatment room as a way of protecting us all.

Please read through this protocol which is based on guidance received from the Government, my insurers and governing bodies.

I have also created a document showing my risk assessment and the commitments I am undertaking to ensure the room, equipment and the treatment are as safe as they can be.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Please do not come if you or a member of your household has any of the symptoms of COVID-19.

(There will be no cancellation fee in this instance).

You must complete the health questions on the day of your appointment.

I will call you or text to you with these questions prior to each appointment.

Please put on your face covering before you come into the house.
Allow me to spray your hands with sanitiser as you arrive and as you leave.

I will be using Neal’s Yard Hand Defence (min. 70% alcohol and anti-bacterial essential oils)

Please try not to touch anything before you get in the treatment room.

Doors, kitchen surfaces or furniture – this is our home.

Please do not bring anything into the house.

No bag, no phone, no coat.

Where possible the consultation parts of your appointment will be carried out in the garden.

Or if this has to be done indoors will be much shorter.

You will be asked to leave shoes and keys by the door.

I will lock the door as usual for security.

Where possible please try to avoid using our bathroom.

Please go before you leave home.

Leave your diary/phone in the car.

We can arrange your next appointment in the car park or over the phone.

Planning for return to hands on treatments!

This is still very much dependant on the Government’s advice nearer the time, but hairdressers have been advised that they may be able to start to return to hands on treatments from 4th July.  As therapists, we have a similar or even smaller amount of contact with our clients, and our guiding organisations are advising us to prepare for the same.

Things, however, will obviously be done very differently.

The UK Reiki Federation and Guild of Holistic Therapists have already sent out guidance of steps we can start preparing towards and will send out more as the Government issues it.   From the information I  have received so far, I am running risk assessments on my treatment room and practices.  From this I am creating a protocol that will work for me, for my clients and at the same time aim to keep us as safe as possible.

In the meantime there are a couple of things you can do to help us both get treatment room ready:

  • Let me know you’d like to be one of the first on my appointment list
  • If possible purchase or make a face covering.  I will have a supply of a multi-layer fabric masks that will be washed after each client.  

I have been busy too and have done a course and achieved Covid-19 certification in understand how the virus is spread and infection control generally.

As soon as I know when I will be able to start seeing clients I will contact those on this list first to book your appointments.  I will also send out the new protocol to you, it is likely to include steps such as

  • cleaning of furniture, equipment, door handles etc,
  • length of time between clients to allow for thorough cleaning,
  • PPE to be worn by me and my clients,
  • reducing fabric coverings on couch and chair to make surfaces easier to clean,
  • what clients can and cannot touch (where possible)
  • checking on recent health/Covid-19 symptoms at time of booking and prior to appointment

This will definitely be a different way of working but at least I should soon be able to return to hands on treatments and welcome you back again.

Reflexology, Reiki

Treatments are changing temporarily.

As we try to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, I like many other have taken the decision to cease hands-on treatments for the time being.  I am following government guidelines and will look forward to resuming normal service when it is deemed safe to do so.

Long time coming

However I am introducing some things that have been at the back of my mind for a long time, and now seems like a prudent time to bring out into the daylight.  As a Holistic Therapist, working with the whole person, I feel I must find ways to share the energy work I do with you and offer relief and release from the confusion, uncertainty and possible distress of the current situation.  Please feel free to share this email with friends, family, work colleagues or people in your community who would benefit from the contact and energy.

Meditation Group

As many of you will remember I used to run regular meditation groups in Thurleigh and Northampton but as people’s lives have become busier they became less and less able to commit to regular sessions.  I have often considered creating a way of doing this online and the current situation has really made look into the logistics of this.  It is more important than ever for people to be able to access the beautiful power of meditation and the ability, with practice, that it has for helping us deal with difficult or stressful situations.

So I am delighted to launch my new meditation group – Medulla Meditation Group (there is a Facebook group of this name too) where you will be able to find details of the live sessions I will be holding on Zoom.  Don’t worry if you’ve never used Zoom before, I will post a link up on the events page of this website and also on the Facebook group and you can just click it or copy and paste into your browser.  There is an app that you can download but if you prefer not to then you can use it straight from the web page.  As usual, if you have any questions or queries then please get in touch.

From next week I will run two half-hour sessions a week – on a Monday lunchtime and a Thursday evening, unfortunately I will not be able to provide tea and cake as I did with my previous, but perhaps you can have your own ready and we can still share the same vibe and conversations we used to have around the table, after our online practice.

This week (w/c 23rd March) I have been offering the groups for free whilst trialing software to run the live sessions on but after that will ask for an exchange of £5 per session (if however you are also self-employed or have lost your job or income especially in recent days then please do let me know, as I don’t want anyone to miss out, particularly when you need it the most).

I will publicise them as events on the Events page here on my website and also on my Facebook Page Medulla Holistic Therapies, so if you do not already follow me, please do so and to help me spread the word.  Please would you be kind enough to share the events on your timelines, to friends, on groups or pages?  I truly believe that these sessions will be beneficial to all but particularly to those who are self-isolating or are struggling with limited social contact.  You may well be aware of people in this situation in your village or workplace who are not aware of me and what I do, so please share the details to as many people as you can.

Distance Reiki

With more of us going into self-isolation; a calming, healing energy therapy is a wonderful way to ease the strain and loneliness as well as help us deal with the emotional aspects of our current situation.

Thankfully, Reiki does not only have to be done in the hands-on manner; as an energy, it can easily be sent across any distance.  From one side of the room to the other or across countries and continents, the effects of distance Reiki can be as relaxing and healing as when you’re having warm hands laid upon you.

No, it’s not the same as going to a beautiful treatment room, with lovely music and aromatherpay oils for a face to face treatment, but it can still be very soothing and equally effective.

Distance Reiki is like a concentrated version so sessions do not need to be as long and so I am now offering a 30 minutes session for an exchange of £20.

We would make an appointment and I would ask you to make yourself comfortable for that time either sitting or lying down and not to be disturbed.  We can connect by phone, facetime, Whatsapp video or some equivalent to do the consultation part, then keep the connection whilst you get comfortable and relax and I send the Reiki to you.  I will talk you into a relaxed state as I always do and afterwards we will review your experience, just like in the treatment room.
