As the pandemic remains these are the hygiene measures I am taking to minimise risk of transmission.
I have been vaccinated against C-19.
I will continue to wear a face covering during treatments.
Clients having craniosacral therapy need to wear a face covering unless they are exempt for medical reasons.
Paper used on the treatment table is disposable and changed between clients.
Clients having facials will bring their own face cloths and sponges, or buy some from me. I will return these at the end of the treatment for you to take home and launder and bring with you next time. If you purchase them from me the cloths and sponges cost £3.00
The window in my treatment room will remain open for ventilation. The heating system at High Beech House is very good and I will make sure the room is always warm enough for you.
Some clients like to be covered during a treatment. I have light blankets which you can use but you are welcome to bring your own if you wish.
I am no longer able to offer you drinking water, please bring your own.
Hand sanitiser is available, and all surfaces including product containers are cleaned with antiviral cleaning products between clients.
To protect my other clients, myself and prevent the spread of Covid in the community I politely request that you do not attend if you feel unwell and think you may have Covid, have tested positive for Covid or know you have been in contact within the last 14 days with someone who has Covid-19.
I am pleased to tell you that close contact services will be permitted in the Loughton area from the 2nd December 2020 so I will be able to do facials again with safety precautions in place. Unless there is a change to the local restrictions which mean I can't do treatments, these are the days I will be open during the festive period.

I will have all the usual safety precautions in place. Please wear a face covering or mask when you visit and remember all the usual rules apply so if you have had a high temperature, new continuous cough, have lost your sense of taste or smell or know you have been in contact with someone who has C-19 please cancel your appointment.
I have implemented new hygiene measures:
You may be aware that beauty and complementary therapists have not been allowed to resume treatments on the 4th of July. As I fall into this category, unfortunately I am unable to take bookings at present.
I am obviously eager to return to the treatment room and will be doing so as soon as the Government says it is possible.
When a date has been confirmed concerning the lifting of restrictions, I will contact everyone on my mailing list but in the meantime please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.
I will post a blog with an opening date when I have permission to start treatments again.
Thank you and hope to see you soon.
The good news is that I will be able to return to the treatment room from 4th of July. However, as much as I would love to resume treatments as before, infection from COVID-19 is still a threat, so I have had to make changes to the way I work.
Your health and wellbeing is of the utmost importance to me. I am a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists and Craniosacral Therapy Association and I have been guided by their advice on how I can carry out treatments safely, without putting your health at risk.
This means I will not be offering facial treatments when I start back initially. I will be reviewing this on a regular basis.
I will no longer charge a cancellation fee. If you feel unwell the day before, or on the day of your treatment, or know you have been in contact with someone who is infected with COVID-19, please cancel your appointment. I will obviously do the same.
All payments are to be made by card. I will no longer accept cash or cheques. Prices will remain the same with a low-cost clinic for craniosacral therapy twice a month.
Safety and Hygiene
I will be wearing a mask or face shield. Please do not be offended by this and feel free to do the same if you wish.
The treatment table will be covered with a disposable semi fabric cover and paper placed on top. The couch will be wiped down with disinfectant in between customers.
Hand sanitiser will be available for your use in the treatment room. Please use this when you arrive.
I will allocate time in between treatments to ventilate the treatment room, disinfect communal surfaces and replace disposable hygiene equipment.
If you prefer to limit your contact with other people, if you arrive on time you will not have to wait in the communal waiting area.
Water – Please bring your own water to drink as I will not be able to offer you water.
I hope you will bear with me and that I will be able to return to doing facials again soon.
I am currently in good health, however, following advice from the government on trying to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, I have taken the decision to stop doing treatments from Saturday 21 March for two weeks – until Saturday 4 April.
Then, depending on the advice we are being given, the spread of the virus and my own health, I may begin treatments again.
As I am sure you understand, no one knows how things will unfold so I feel this is the best option under the circumstances.
I will let you know as soon as I can when I am going to be doing treatments again.
Please feel free to contact me by text, email or phone or check this blog page for the latest updates.
The 14th to the 20th of October is Craniosacral Therapy Awareness Week.
I think the best way to learn about the therapy is to have a treatment!
If you have not experienced craniosacral therapy why not give it a try?
I will be offering taster treatments, free of charge on Sunday 20th October from 10am at my treatment room in Loughton as my own way of spreading awareness of the therapy.
I will be booking slots for the treatments, please contact me for further information or to book a place.
How many of us actively look in the mirror and love everything about the reflection staring back? From eye bags and wrinkles, to greying and dull hair, almost everyone has a ‘problem area’ which they would love to resolve. But who wrote the book on beauty? There isn’t a set of regulations which states we have to look a certain way or conform to a stereotype which others find attractive. It’s our flaws which make us individual and it’s our differences which make us beautiful. And do you know the number one way to look good – by being body confident and appreciating the skin you’re in.
“Someone once said ‘The greatest challenge in life is finding out who you are, the second greatest is being happy with what you find,’” says Dawn Thein, holistic therapist and owner of Dawn’s Holistic Therapy based in Loughton. “I believe this is the key to real confidence,” she concludes.
