Julie, what is your specialisation and how long have you been practising?
I have been practising as a massage therapist for four years now. I use a combination of deep tissue and sports massage techniques depending on the client’s specific needs.
When did you start working at Salus Wellness and what influenced your decision to work here?
I started working at Salus Wellness in November 2012. My husband met a former Director of Salus Wellness, at a networking event where he introduced the clinic.
I spoke with him soon after that and found him very warm, welcoming and reassuring. So, I decided to join the clinic and haven’t looked back since.
How many clients do you see in an average week?
I see 10 clients per week.
What is your general view of the facilities offered by Salus Wellness?
The facilities are very good. The rooms are clean, warm and fully equipped.
How did the help received from Salus Wellness in terms of running your business, sales, and marketing help to develop your business?
I have received valuable marketing advice for my business through the free monthly workshops hosted by Massimo Gaetani, Director of Salus Wellness Clinics.
What are your future plans at the clinic?
I plan to stay at Salus Wellness for the foreseeable future.
Would you recommend Salus Wellness to other practitioners?
Yes I would definitely recommend Salus Wellness to others.
What advice would you give to new practitioners?
Love what you do and be patient in growing your business.
Professional therapists from Salus Wellness volunteered their time and expertise at a charity event last week, during the celebration party that Brainbow organised for their first year in operation.
Brainbow is a partnership between three independent charities – Anna’s Hope, Camille’s Appeal and Tom’s Trust, working with Addenbrooke’s Hospital – to fund and provide a pioneering rehabilitation service in the East of England for children with brain tumour. The Brainbow service provides co-ordinated specialist neuro-rehabilitation (physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and clinical psychology) assessment and some treatment for children with brain tumours.
As part of their celebration, which was excellently organised in a beautiful park just outside Cambridge, Brainbow wanted to offer head and shoulder seated massage to help their attendees to release some stress and tension accumulated over time.
At Salus Wellness we love to be involved in these community events and we were very pleased, in this occasion, to be very busy from the very beginning to the last minute of the party. We are very thankful to both Elke Hausler and Julie Taylor-Allan for their precious contribution.
Last week Salus Wellness run another practitioners workshop aimed at helping practitioners in complementary health to build and grow their private practice. Workshops are organised as business clinics where practitioners have the opportunity of discussing new approaches to market their business they would like to try or what is currently not working in their practice that needs adjusting.
Using a coaching approach Massimo Gaetani, (in the picture above) managing director of Salus Wellness and professional business coach, facilitates the meeting and helps attendees to achieve results in a swift and effective way. Topic discussed during the latest workshop included:
- Marketing via social networks like Twitter and Facebook
- Keeping in touch with clients
- Monitoring client’s satisfaction
- Guidelines about pricing for sessions and packages
- How to ensure regular and returning clients
- Best way of getting consistent referrals
All practitioners’ workshops are free for practitioners at Salus Wellness but available to others for a fee; please get in touch with us if interested in more information.
Last Saturday 22 June 2013 PACT was running the traditional Summer Event and we at Salus Wellness run a charity day where members of the public had the opportunity of enjoying short taster sessions in massage, reflexology other treatments and accepted donations to be paid to PACT itself.
A total of 7 of our practitioners attended the event and offered their services to the local community; people treated during the day included 3 fire fighter which were officially attending the event with their fire engine parked in front of our premises. The day was a great success and we also managed to collect £87 in donation from nearly 20 member of the public. Salus Wellness has also donated 4 massages for a total value of nearly £200 to PACT’s blind auction and tombola.
