Lancaster Complementary Health Fair

Are you free on Saturday 14th March? Put the Lancaster Complementary Health Fair in your diary - its only £1.50 to come and look round! More details - including a list of the healing traditions and therapies represented can be found at -
The Lancaster Steiner School website

Please come and say hello if you are at all interested in the therapies I offer. :O)

Its an opportunity to meet me, have a chat, and find out a bit more about what I do or perhaps ask any questions you may have. Then perhaps you might like to try one of my taster sessions? As a treat in itself, or as a try-out to see if you'd like to come to me for a full treatment?

I'm still working out exactly what I'll be offering. Its a public space, and I want people to feel comfortable enough to really relax - so don't worry there won't be any stripping off needed! The sessions will be about 15 minutes, of which about 10 would be the actual treatment. I am currently thinking -

1. Arms and Hands, seated, perhaps using a mix of techniques from Swedish Massage, Aromatherapy Massage, AND Indian Head Massage, with a choice of Aromatherapy oil blends.
2. Feet, using the couch - either a foot rub, or some Reflexology.
3. Back - Indian Head Massage style (which is traditionally done fully clothed) either seated leaning forward onto the couch, or lying face down on the couch, if preferred.
4. Neck and Head - either Indian Head massage style, sat up.

I'll blog it up if I change my mind or pin it down more!

Welcome / Intro!

Welcome to the Holistyx blog! If you are visiting while there is still not much here to see yet, please bear with me as I find my way around. :O)

I've been speaking to Julia Russell about a Complementary Health Fair she and Karin Olsson are organising on behalf of, and as a fund raiser for, Lancaster Steiner School. They've held them at the Friends Meeting House before. There is a new venue this year of the Ashton Hall - the one round the back of the Town Hall not the Memorial Folly up at Williamsons Park like I initially thought! Its on Saturday 14th March, 10am-5pm, and there are going to be lots of different healing traditions and therapies represented there, taster sessions, talks, and a healthy cafe (the Steiner people do the best). I'm ringing Julia back in the morning to say YES I do want a table + chair and couch-space so I can offer tasters to people.

I am now thinking about everything I will need to take with me... good job I have a few weeks to get my head round it and a load of stuff printed... I'm not short of leaflets though, I had a thousand printed a few weeks ago - but I now need to get them stickered with my new location details and a few other bits of info that I now want to add on - like the URL of this blog!
