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.
