24/2/21 - All Change Soon!?
This is just a rough update on dates that change my working practices. Please note, these dates are the EARLIEST dates things may change and it's all dependant on how the preceding steps go and there are no hiccups, as this may delay start dates.
So....no earlier than:
March 29th - Outdoor exercise can resume. This I have to clarify if its under rule of 6..so at the very worst, private/small group Yoga can resume outdoors.
April 12th - Routine close contact/massage services can resume. Again the finer points on this as to what we can offer in the remit of Massage/Bodywork has yet to be defined.
May 17th - Indoor exercise can resume. This means Yoga classes will return in venue. Again notes on restrictions (ie social distancing) I am yet to iron out......
Hopefully all these things will happen without a hitch, but as discussed nothing is set in stone by these dates.
I understand government will give us some notice as the time gets near, so when I know we have a green light for a definite start date, all clients and students will be notified and the relevant bookings will be made. This is all to save confusion and disappointment and at least all can have certainty.
In the meantime, Massage Services for Emergency Appointments Only, Remote Consultations and Online Yoga will continue.....
Hope this helps! Lx
10/11/20 - Yoga Online & Massage for "Urgent only appointments" during lockdown 2
Further to the Government announcement and in line with Lockdown rules, Yoga Classes are now remote. 121, Small Group & general classes available via Zoom. The general class times run in line with venue classes.
Mondays: 9.30am - 11am
Thursdays: 7pm - 8.30pm
Fridays: 9.30am - 11am
Classes for the times listed above are £7, pre book and paid. Zoom is a free platform for you to use.
Massage services, in line with our awarding body guidance (FHT), are only permitted for urgent and emergency cases. For minor injuries, concerns and general issues, these are to be postponed until 2nd December. However you can be seen remotely should you need advice or a consultation.
This again will be reviewed on 2nd December, depending if there are any new restrictions that could affect us.
12/5/20 - Massage Services postponed until 4/7/20 earliest
Hope you are all doing well :)
Following the publishing of the Government document yesterday regarding the guidance of easing the restrictions of lockdown, it seems that all close proximity workers (Hairdressing, Beauty which includes Massage, and personal care) are, more than likely, to not return to service until 4/7/20 at the earliest, as falls under "Phase 3" of re opening.
My awarding body and insurer (FHT) have stipulated that it is still not appropriate to treat face to face at this time, after consulting the relevant guidance.
However they have released guidance on "Covid Secure"/ safe practice when returning to work, which I will be diligently following.
These guidelines are conditional and honestly depends on when we reach the third phase of easing restrictions.
BUT..... the silver lining from this is:
I am still running online group classes via Zoom :)
I am still running online 121s and small group in Yoga & Meditation :)
I am still offering online consultations :)
In short, I am still offering a good amount of services, to help all of you through this :)
WITH MORE TO COME :) WATCH THIS SPACE!
Much Love... Lucy x
3/4/20 - Updated Timetable and Details on the

After a fruitful week of online classes for the regular attendees of class, the online service can now be offered to the wider public, to aid people through the lock down due to Covid 19.

All can be found on the "Online Services" page of this website, including how to book, ways to pay etc.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: AMENDMENTS TO CLASSES/TREATMENTS REGARDING COVID 19 - UPDATED 22/3/20.
Well what a year a week has been! It has been harrowing for all concerned. I need to fill you in on changes in business practices.
YOGA: On Friday, both venues have now closed to limit spread of the out break. This means that for the time being, physical Yoga classes have stopped.
HOWEVER: Gary and I (and quite possibly our cats!) are working diligently towards setting up online Yoga Classes, both group and 121, to bring me and our community to your home. It will happen and aiming to be up and running by end of next week. I can help all needed to deal with the tech side, as and when it comes to it.
MEDITATION: I am also looking to set up meditation classes, both group and 121. I feel that we need "something to stabilise the boat"...and at this time, it is needed more now than ever. I am willing to listen to your needs on a 121 or group basis and design your meditation practice around it.
SOUND BATHS: I am also looking into online Sound Baths, to aid in your calm in this time. These will be up for purchase, for a small fee.
RESTORATIVE: Due to the close of venues, it's not possible at this time to run a physical Restorative at this time. But I am looking into a remote one to be held online. People booked on the restorative on the 29th March can have a refund, offset it to classes, or defer to the next restorative, both physical or virtual.
MASSAGE: Sadly due to guidelines from my awarding bodies, it is advised that treatments should cease. I shall contact my clients personally, to discuss.
I am here to serve you. This is what my vocation is all about. I want our community to continue and will do my utmost to continue my support to you all.
Lastly, I am slashing prices from my normal physical practice, to help make this viable for all within this crisis. We have all been hit hard by this...we can get through.
I am about, should you need me. Please do not hesitate to contact me through here, my website or by phone on 07904 276 018.
This too shall pass. Much Love Lx
IMPORTANT NOTICE: AMENDMENTS TO CLASSES/TREATMENTS REGARDING COVID 19.
In light of the recent pandemic, you have probably noticed attending classes or treatments, whether home visit or in clinic, that hygiene standards have to be raised an extra bar, to deter the potential spread of Covid 19. Here are just some minor changes, to make sure we all stay safe.
Us therapists and teachers are always making sure our hands are clean as it's the professional standard. But we would be most grateful if you can clean yours before treatment or class and just generally wash hands on a regular basis.
It will be advisable to bring your own mat to Yoga, but Yoga equipment will still be provided. At the end of every session, all equipment is sprayed down/cleaned with sanitizer, to halt the spread of infection. In regards to massage, the couches are cleaned after every session.
I kindly ask, if you present symptoms or generally feel unwell, please do not attend class or treatment. It may be over precaution, but at this point in time we cant afford to take risks! In that light, I wish you a speedy recovery should this happen ❤
Should I appear to present symptoms that could put you at risk, I shall self isolate as advised. I shall make every endeavor to keep you posted as soon as possible regarding this on both here and on my website www.relaxreviverestore.co.uk under the "News & Events" tab.
Likewise, if a venue has to shut down due to the pandemic, I shall also keep you posted. We are all trying to work to prevent either situation from happening.
⏰ Amendments are under review as the situation changes, therefore there may be minor changes to events, regardless of the remit (either Massage or Yoga). Ultimately I am aiming for as little disruption to the services that I provide, to offer you the best service possible within the current circumstances. This is with public health advice permitting.
I know that this pandemic is taxing a lot of people. I as all therapists are here to help and with stress levels high it is very much needed, but if we all work together, we can get through the other side of this with minimal disruption.
Much Love Lx
