Wow, we always intend to have a rest and not make too many changes at Espiritu, but I think that we love improving things just too much!
Thank you so much for embracing all the Autumn changes, we are so glad that you loved them! So what’s been happening?
Health and Wellbeing Hub
Our newest venture is to create a health and wellbeing hub at Espiritu, so that we can truly be a ‘one stop shop’ for all your needs. Sometimes you need a little more than a manicure or blow dry, so we have found the best specialists that we could for you!
Cryotherapy – the amazing power of cold can be used for pain relief, injuries and after strenuous exercise. It can even help with fat reduction, wrinkle reduction and but lifts, or more difficult problems like acne, psoriasis! (faster, pain free and more flexible areas than other options)!
Far Infrared – many of you will know how Far Infrared has helped Lisa to tackle her Lyme disease. Well, the cocoon is now back full time at the salon and ready to give you deep rest, energy, help you recover from over doing exercise/life or detox your systems. Lisa is also available for ‘Life Style’ consultations, to help you make big improvements in your life with simple changes.
Osteopathy – this is a holistic approach to injuries, back problems and postural issues. Mark can also help with medical acupuncture and ergonomics (how your work/activities might be affecting your problem)
Clinical Hypnotherapy – Saleema is a hypnotherapist with many years of experience, so she can help with the traditional weight loss and giving up smoking, as well as helping you to get over any blocks stopping you from moving forward in your life.
Coaching & Healing – Olwen is a gentle and intuitive healer and coach who can support you through difficult times in your life.
Most of you will have met our gorgeous Sophie by now, she has made such a difference to the salon, quietly beavering away in the background!
Sophie is now available for a ‘Junior Wash and Dry’ – this is for those days when you just need someone else to wash your hair for you! She is also available to do braids and ‘Style & Go’s’. I have no doubt she will be ready for blow drying within the next 2 months, which is really exciting.
We are hoping to create a team of apprentices during this year; as long as we can get more as wonderful as Sophie, that is!
Double room massage/facial – there is now a specific ‘double room’ service for the Bespoke Body Ritual or Absolute Deluxe Facial, that is £5 off per person when you share a room. Bonus!
Spa Club Tuesday – Our ‘Colour club Wednesday’ is so popular that we’ve created a ‘Spa Club Tuesday’ for you. Receive 50% off a facial when you book any massage. Such a fabulous deal, and you definitely deserve it!
Gentle Reminder: Cancellations & Booking Fees
Our cancellation policy has been in operation since October, but since having a receptionist, we have been able to implement it more easily. Please remember that we are just a small family run business, and that if affects our availability for other clients if you do not give us enough notice of your cancellation or change in appointments needed (obviously we are flexible where there are serious problems).
We have changed the text reminders for your appointments to go out 3 days before your appointment, to give you plenty of time to make adjustments; we so understand how easy it is to forget in the busy world that we live in!
So as a reminder here is the policy:
- Any services cancelled the day before will incur a 50% charge.
- Any services cancelled on the day (including removal of just some services from a multi-booking) will incur a 100% charge.
- Where there has been a late cancellation 3 times in the past, we will ask for a non-refundable booking fee of 50% to book your appointments going forwards.
- Long appointments over 2hrs or group booking will require a non-refundable booking fee of 50%
Our new Lash Lift, Individual Lashes and Environ facials have become so popular, that we will be training up more of the girls over the next 2 months. We are also looking to extend the reception cover to be full-time.
There will be loads more on the Aesthetic side and after the success of our ‘Hot and Cold’ open day for you to try the Cryotherapy and Far Infrared, we’ll have a ‘Health and Wellbeing’ open day for you to meet our visiting specialist. Keep your eye on our Facebook page for information.
There will also be lots of beauty tips and more activity on our Espiritu page; remember to set notifications to ‘first’ if you don’t want to miss any. Watch out for spontaneous offers when there are late cancellations and other short promotions!
I love spring, don’t you? Looking forward to seeing what the rest of 2017 will bring for us all.
