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 my new year prices here on my website, 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.)

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? 

How Far Ahead Can I Book You?

Over the last year or so, I have been taking bookings up to a maximum of 3 calendar months ahead. I've decided to rein that in a bit.

From 1st April, I will open up my diary for bookings for the month of June.
From 1st May, I will open up my diary for bookings for the month of July.

So at the beginning of each month you can schedule 3 full months ahead with me. But then as we go through each month, it will just be to the end of that month + two months.

Not having my schedule fixed so far in advance will allow me a little more flexibility as opportunities come along. It will be fairer for those clients who don't know their schedule or when they want to come so far ahead. Plus it should reduce the amount of rescheduling needed as peoples plans change.

I hope this will work out better for most of us.

Short Notice Appointments: When You Get a Cancellation - Will You Let Me Know?

Due to people needing to cancel or reschedule, appointments are occasionally available at short notice. I keep a waiting list of people who have asked to be informed if something comes up. Do let me know if you would like to be added to it, and by all means any brief notes to add on which days and times you would, or would not, be interested in. Even though there are often several people on the list, as they all have different availability it is still worthwhile to be added if you are interested in short notice appointments.
