Self care in self isolation

Arguably, the best time to book yourself in for a soothing aromatherapy back, neck and shoulders massage is a time of great personal and global crisis. An hour for us to slip away from the world and the constant stream of news in favour of a warm cocoon of towels, deep breaths filled with essential oils and a pair of expert hands easing the knots in our shoulders…

Small, local businesses like Sammy Anne’s’ Holistic Therapies made the difficult decision to close indefinitely during the current COVID-19 outbreak to keep both staff and customers safe and well. A necessary and important decision as we all (well, most of us!) stay at home and hunker down for the forseeable.

We’re lucky to know firsthand how excellent and soothing Sammy Anne and her teams’ treatments are and count ourselves as regular customers. With the doors to their treatment rooms firmly shut, how can we support this small business and encourage self care in a time of self isolation?

We closed last week before gov announced it as it didn’t feel right anymore to put anyone at risk staff & clients.

Business owner Sammy understands that for some customers, massage is “essential”  for them both physically and emotionally. Closing their doors and stopping this much-loved service is incredibly hard for the whole team.


How can you support Sammy Anne’s Holistic Therapies during the Coronavirus outbreak?

Sammy and her team are currently promoting a special offer for NHS workers which asks customers to purhcase a £35 “goodwill” gift voucher which Sammy Anne’s will top up to make it a one hour treatment. (Treatments start from £40-£55).

You could also buy yourself, or a loved one a massage to use in future. This injection of cash, no matter how small, will help Sammy Anne’s retain their staff and keep this much-loved small business up and running until they can unlock the doors of their soothing treatment rooms again and start working their magic on the tension in all of our shoulders.
