Today is the 8 year anniversary of Holistyx moving in to the Christ Church vicarage at 1 East Road with Rvd Phil Hudd and his family.
I have always said I felt so blessed to find such a wonderful place to work from - I couldn't have asked for better. But all good things must come to an end.
Phil is shortly moving on from his position at Christ Church and out of the house. So Holistyx has needed to find a new home.
This week I got the keys to 604 Alston House, White Cross Business Park, Lancaster. Its a large room, with a sink, and big enough for me to divide up with curtains and have a waiting area, a consultation and treatment area, and a back storage and working area for myself.
Its very close to where I am now, right next to the canal between Quarry Road (think White Cross Pub) and South Road (opposite the Hospital).
My last day here with clients is in less than 2 weeks, on Tuesday 2nd July. I will be moving and getting all set up in the new place from Weds 3rd to Monday 8th and then first clients at my new premises are booked from Tuesday 9th July.
I am going through so many feelings, from sadness about so many things I have loved and will miss about this place, to excitement about a new, bigger place and new possibilities there.
Over the last 10 days I have worked my way one at a time down my list of people who contacted me when I was closed to new clients, giving them first chance to book in. Having done that I still have 2 spaces in May and 13 in June. So get in touch if you would like to book in with me.
A heads up - I am not sure how long I will be open to new clients - if I again start to get so booked up its difficult for my regulars to get appointments I will close again and go back to having a waiting list.
December is now fully booked and the first week of January is also not available (though 1 or 2 days may be added nearer the time) I would encourage ongoing clients who would like an appointment in early January to get yourself booked in now.
Some of my regular clients have missed getting an appointment in December, so I am doing a short closure to new clients to prioritise getting my ongoing clients booked in.
Wanting to book as someone who has been to me before? - I usually allow bookings up to 2 calendar months ahead. I am for a short time letting clients who have previously been to me stretch that by an extra week. Ie today, 12th Nov, you can book up to 19th Jan.
Wanting to book as a new client? - Please get in touch again on or after Thursday 22nd Nov, I am expecting to be ok to start adding new people in to my January diary from then. Hope that all makes sense. If in doubt, just ask!
