    Moving 

    This week is all about moving!

    We spent an extremely hot Bank Holiday weekend moving out of the old centre and studio and into the new and we’ve settled quickly into our new home. We’ve had some lovely comments from patients who’ve been to see us this week and we also now know we’re storm-proof after the torrential rain on Friday afternoon!

    There are four treatment rooms instead of the previous three and the studio is in-house instead of “across the way”. The rooms are all being given new names with a link to Sedona in Arizona which has one of the first John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach treatment and teaching centres. It is also a place where various American Indian tribes lived, such as the Yavapai and Apache, so the names are symbolic.

    The studio is named Buffalo which symbolises adaptability, strength, stability, provision and blessing. The treatment rooms are called Bear, Eagle, Horse and Wolf.
    Can you guess which treatment room belongs to which therapist from the symbol meanings?
    Bear: protector, courage, physical strength
    Eagle: Nearer to the creator, courage, wisdom, strength, messenger
    Horse: Grounded power of the earth with the whispers of wisdom found in spirit winds
    Wolf: Great warrior, guardian, creator, safety, manifest well-being.
    The door signs are in production so you’ll be able to check if you were right in the next couple of weeks!

    The whole centre is on the ground floor and is fully wheelchair, buggy and walking aid friendly. We have plenty of parking in front and to the side of the building, again fully accessible. We think it feels comfortingly familiar with a fresh, brighter, more spacious atmosphere.

    As before the studio is available for hire and as it’s now contained within our centre it has easier access to the toilet facilities, hot and cold water and is fully accessible.

    We’re sure you’ll like the environment in the new Holisticare Centre so why not book an appointment and let us help you get moving too.

    Helping Hands for St Clare Hospice 

    Holisticare is participating in St Clare Hospice’s £50 Challenge. The event runs from April to June and the aim is to turn £50 into as much as we can with all money going to St Clare. We share many of the values of the Hospice and both Holisticare and St Clare provide fantastic, compassionate care and support for our patients.

    “So what is Holisticare Helping Hands?”
    It’s your chance to get creative and support a great charity at the same time by entering our competition – and it’s easy! As myofascial release practitioners our hands are the tools we use every day to provide effective and gentle therapy for our patients so our competition is based around the theme of Helping Hands. There are 4 age categories, Pre-school, Primary, Secondary and Over 16s, and there is a prize for the winner of each category.

    “What do I do and how do I enter?”
    Simply draw round your hand on a piece of paper (or print out and use our template – email info@holisticare so we can send it to you) then decorate the hand however you like! Put your details on the back of the picture and send or bring it to us with a minimum donation of £1. We need your full name, age category, email address and phone number and if you are entering as part of an organisation put that on too. It is perfect if you’re looking for an activity to do with your children or grandchildren. It’s also a chance to have an impromptu “fun at work day” with your colleagues, encourage people in your local organisations such as sports clubs, WI, Church or youth club or why not enlist some friends in the pub to decorate hands over a glass of wine! Ask at Reception if you would like template copies.

    “What happens then?”
    The entries will be judged by local artist, Paulene Brakespear. She will pick a prize winner from each category who will be announced at the Holisticare Quiz Night. We felt it would be great to have a physical representation of the helping hand that every competition contributor is giving to the Hospice so entries will be used to create a special piece of artwork. This will be donated to the Hospice and they plan to auction it to raise even more funds.

    “Quiz Night? You didn’t mention a Quiz Night.”
    Our Quiz Night is on Friday 30th June in Hatfield Broad Oak Village Hall, CM22 7HN. Tickets are £8 per person if you book in advance or £10 on the night. We strongly advise that you pre-book as we are expecting to be full! Teams are a maximum of 8 people – please confirm team numbers when booking. There will be a licensed bar and you may bring your own nibbles. There will be a raffle with great prizes including a Holisticare treatment voucher, an Indian meal, a bottle of brandy, chocolates and much more. Tickets are £1 a strip. If you can’t make the quiz you can still join in the raffle by buying tickets from Holisticare Reception.

    “Great! Is there any other way I can help?”
    Yes! First, spread the word about the Helping Hands Competition. The more entries we have, the better the final artwork will be. Second, all donations of raffle prizes are greatly appreciated – more prizes = more winners! Third, buy some raffle tickets. Lastly, we have St Clare collection boxes in Holisticare Reception and will be taking them round and about and to the Quiz too. Please give as generously as you can and if you see a Holisticare member of staff off duty we will be happy to take your competition entries, donations and raffle prizes for you.

    Call 01279 718331 to book your treatment and maintenance appointments, Free Yourself Hour or Intensive Treatment Programme and our new Bump to Baby Classes, beginning on Thursday 20th April, to help you prepare your body for your baby’s birth.
