On Saturday I finally had an appointment for my massage at the SanctuaryÂ in Cambridge.
This was a valentines treat for me from Geoff and could not have come at a better time, I have been trying to fit too many things into my days and had been suffering from anÂ annoying dullÂ headache all week 🙁
I arrived a good 30 mins early so I could relax in theÂ LavenderÂ room with a cup of herbal tea before my massage 🙂
I choose to have a deep tissue massage.
The massage itself was, for many reasons very interesting for me.
Firstly she massaged me using her forearms and fists which takes the strain off her hands/thumbs andÂ Â you get a deeper massage.
Secondly I was amazed at how bad my back and shoulders are, they are just full of huge knotts and of course these knotts could be the cause of my headaches. 🙁
Thirdly it confirmed to me that the next course I want to do is The Deep Tissue Massage.
A great gift from Geoff and although it was not very relaxing it was veryÂ enjoyable and taught me that I should practise what I preach !
( and NO I did not let on that I was a massage therapist )
It has been hard trying to build up my massage business this year and I lost a few clients who are struggling financially.
At the moment I have a few regular clients, in and around Kings Lynn and the rest dip in and out for treats, as and when they can afford it.
I would also like to build up my massage business in Cambridge too , where I have a few weekend clients.
Some times it feels like its never going to happen,I will never get that one extra client.
Then you get that one phone call or e-mail that makes it all worth while.
Amazingly someone has just booked and paid for 10 back massages as a Christmas gift for his mum, who lives in a village just outside of Kings Lynn.
That makes me realize that its all worth while and next year could be my year !
After Christmas I intend to do a leaflet drop, I have 200 of the above leaflets printed and ready to go 🙂
Do you have any suggestions on how I might grow my massage Business ????
If your struggling to find that special gift for the person that has everything.
Why not give them the gift of a massage and help them start the New Year off de-stressed and relaxed.
It could be the best Gift they ever receive.
My older clients especially like me as I always have time for a cup of tea and a chat 🙂
Vouchers available for Swedish body massage and Indian head massage.

I just read a blog post over at Murry Newlands.
His advice about blogging is blog about what you want.

Now its your turn…Â what do you want ???
Even at the age of 17 and 21 my boys like an advent calendar.
This year I dug out one they had as little boys and filled the days with a chocolate each.
Needless to say they were well pleased.
It just reminds me how much I have to do in the next 25 days
Yesterday I made my last batch of Jam for this year.
The Damsons had been a gift from someone at work.
They have been sat in the freezer just waiting for me to find time for Jam making.
My friend was pleased with her Jar of Jam and I must say it is rather delicious.
Lets hope I have time to make some Scones tomorrow to go with the Jam.
Next I have to find time to bake the Christmas cake 🙂
Over the past few weeks whilst doing my Swedish massage In Cambridge, UK I have been experimenting with a different massage oil, Pure virgin Coconut Oil
This oil is only liquid at room temperature’s over 24 degrees ,less than that and it solidifies.
So I have bought a baby bottle warmer to keep my oil liquid for when doing my mobile massages.
All my Cambridge massage clients have really liked this oil,so now not only do you get a wonderful massage but also a full body moisturising treatment too and at no extra cost!!.
Its also a great hair moisturiser so makes a fantastic oil to use for an Indian head massage,and of course its great for the face too, I’ve been using it for several months as a face cream :-).
From now on I shall be using Pure virgin coconut oil for all my massages in Cambridge, Kings Lynn and Downham Market.
After the disappointment of my cancelled Cambridge massage client.
Celebrity blogger Murry Newlands decided to step in and sample an Indian Head massage for himself.
Its a great way to ease tension and eye strain after sitting at a computer all day blogging.
No need to find the time to visit a salon either as I can come to you !!
