New Prices From 1st Oct 2017

I usually raise my prices each year on the 1st January. It was suggested to me recently that this is a terrible time to put prices up. Many people have spent a lot of money on presents, and on celebrating Christmas, New Year and/or other Festivities and are going into the coldest time of year low on funds.

So I am changing when I put my prices up, to the 1st of October.

My new prices will be:

As previously, the same prices will apply based on the length of the session (including consultation and treatment) regardless of what treatment option you choose.

Re-decorated Therapy Room

I am very excited to share with you, photographs and video of my newly redecorated therapy room. :)

Redecoration thanks to my landlord Rev Phil Hudd who hosts Holistyx in his home, the vicarage at 1 East Road, Lancaster LA1 3EE.

Photography and Video by my partner, Chris Up Front.

​I really hope everyone likes the new look. So far, I am very happy to say, I have had lots of positive reactions and feedback.  :)

If you come for an appointment and I don't ask you what you think of my newly decorated room - it doesn't mean I don't want to know what you think!

Its because - I have decided I don't want to put you on the spot by asking! In case you don't like it or aren't keen - and aren't comfortable to say so. That would detract from your appointment time being about YOU and your comfort and relaxation.

So... if you'd like to comment when you see it, I absolutely want to hear your thoughts. :)

Gift Vouchers

Gift vouchers are available. 

3/4 hour voucher = £28

1 hour voucher = £35​

hour and a 1/4 voucher = £43​

hour and a half ​ voucher = £50​

Gift vouchers were previously valid for 12 weeks (just under 3 months). This hasn't felt long enough for a while now, as I am usually fully booked for 5-6 weeks and for Saturdays or evenings its often longer. So they are now valid for 4 months.

​​If you w​ould like a gift voucher ​please ​get in touch. Its easiest for me by email - that way as I send you some questions and you can type in the answers. Or if you prefer you can phone me on 07888 692803. We can arrange payment by cash, cheque, PayPal, or direct bank transfer.

To guarantee arrival for Christmas ​(or Hannakah) ​through the post, please contact me ASAP and at the latest by next Monday 19th Dec

What you get:

- the voucher, valid for 4 months, with issue date and expiry date completed.

- A compliments slip with my schedule and a 'to' and 'from'. This may also be personalised with an added message from you if you wish.

- a leaflet with information about the range of services and options available and their different benefits.

- a leaflet with Advice and Care Information for Before, During and After Massage, and where appropriate, a leaflet with Advice and Care Information for Before, During and After Reflexology.

- A 'reminder' service - if I haven't been contacted to book in within 1 month, I contact the recipient myself.

Going Towards 2017... New Prices

I am fully booked up to the end of this year, and I am booking into January. From the 5th of December I will start taking bookings for February. So, I decided rather than wait till Jan 1st to put up my new year prices it would make more sense to do it now as that is the price that anyone booking me from now on will be paying. So all prices on my website are now 2017 prices.

(NB if there is a cancellation and you get an appointment in 2016, you will of course be charged 2016 prices.)

The full price lists for all the different treatment options are given on my Price List page, and on the pages about particular treatment types, eg Swedish Massage, Reflexology, etc.

As I am continuing to charge by time, rather than by what I do in the time - e.g. if you have an hour of Indian head massage it costs the same as an hour of Reflexology - here's a handy sum up of the difference between my 2016 and 2017 prices.

However, please note that hour and 3/4 sessions are no longer offered for new clients. I am including the prices here for benefit of regular clients I have agreed to continue this option for.

Also, half hour sessions are not available for a first appointment (which is why they are not included in my price lists). Please enquire after your first session if you are interested in half hour sessions.

A Parting Gift from my Loyalty Card Scheme

In July I decided to stop using loyalty cards. At that point I stopped giving out loyalty cards to new clients. I didn't want to suddenly take it away when people were expecting and looking forward to an upcoming discounted or free session, so I emailed my mailing list and gave 3 months notice. That 3 months is now up! No more stamps will be given.

I am giving you another 2 months to use the stamps you already have on your card - to the end of this year. To be as fair and as simple as possible, each stamp now has a value of 5%. Any remaining stamps on your card will be traded in at the value of 5% off per stamp at your next session with me.

In most cases this increases the value of the stamps on your card. Eg if you have 8 stamps, which were worth 25% off, that is now 8 x 5% =40% off. 12 stamps, which were worth half price, are now 12 x 5% = 60% off. A bit of a parting gift from my loyalty scheme.

When Is Your Next Available Appointment?

I am usually fully booked up to around 5-7 weeks in advance. Book well in advance to avoid disappointment, particularly for those who need evening or weekend appointments. If you are only looking for a same day or next day appointment, this is highly unlikely to be available.

Please also see Short Notice Appointments: If you get a cancellation will you let me know?
