Welcome to our November 2019 Newsletter, with news on our upcoming Classes, WorkshopsTreatment Offers and other interesting articles.

As some of you may know, we will be closing on Friday 25th October for some building works and we are planning to re-open on Thursday 7th November, when our classes will be starting again.

There are a few changes to our timetable and instructors, with a new Yoga Foundations class with Belén Dakak on Thursday lunchtime; if you are new to Yoga or have done some before, but would like to get a better understanding of the basic yoga postures and breathing techniques, this class will be for you. The Beginners Pilates class on Thursday’s has been taken off the schedule for now, but may be back in January. Marina Stevenson will be taking on the 18:00 Pilates on Wednesday’s and Helen Majerus will be taking over the Friday Lotte Berk class from Rob.  To take advantage of our 10% early booking discount, please make sure you book and pay by Monday 4th November (full courses only).

Christmas will be here before we know it, which means we have to find Christmas Presents and Stocking Fillers. Don’t despair, Earthlife has our usual range of useful, nice smelling, relaxing products and treatments.

Pain, whether acute or chronic, effects millions of people in the UK, it cost the economy £10 billion year and is miserable and wearing for those suffering with these conditions. Our Acupuncturist, Andrea, (also a Massage Therapist, Reflexologist and Vertical Reflex Therapist) has developed a treatment system that uses a combination of these disciplines to enhance her treatments, called AcuReflexology. This combined technique can offer relief relatively quickly.

Another issue that affects many people are problems arising from Scars after injuries or operations. Once initial healing has finished in a scar it can be left feeling tight or have lumpy or hard sections; especially common if there was an infection during healing. There can also be loss of feeling or a pulling sensation in the areas nearby.  Amanda, one of our therapists has trained in ScarWork, which can help with both the appearance and restrictions a scar can cause.

Come and meet your local pregnancy and baby community at the first ever Barnes Birth & Baby Fair on Saturday 2nd November from 14:00-17:00.  Earthlife will be there with details of all Pre & Post Natal Treatments, Classes & Workshops on offer and Hand-knitted by Hilde will also be there with her lovely woolly knitted clothing for little ones.  Only £2 a ticket.  Hope to see you there!

Our treatment offer for November & December will be the amazing Hot Stone Massage, with £10 off. Massaging with hot stones will increase the benefits of the massage, as the therapist can work more deeply into the muscles; adding therapeutic and remedial effects to the massage.

As always, we are looking forward to seeing you at Earthlife soon.
