Holistic Health Leicester’s COVID-19 statement regarding re-opening
New information will be highlighted in BOLD font.
Updated 6th July 2020.
At Holistic Health Leicester, I fully appreciate how much COVID-19 has impacted your life and that many of you are eager to return for your treatments. However, in order to support your health and wellbeing I have to follow the latest guidance from the UK government, NHS and other authorities. You would expect nothing less from me.
As you are no doubt aware, social distancing measures of 1 metre are still in place across the UK to try and limit the spread of COVID-19, as well as reduce the risk of it peaking again in the future. Which makes it impossible for me to carry out any treatment at this time.
Over the coming weeks and months, the government will be introducing a range of adjustments to the social distancing controls it currently has in place. These adjustments will happen in ‘steps’, each separated by a number of weeks, so that the government can closely monitor the effect of each adjustment.
The government has indicated in the recovery strategy document referred to above, that sectors such as personal care (including complimentary therapy clinics) will not be included in the sectors allowed to re-open 4 July, permission to re-open is subject to ‘the five tests’ and ‘further detailed scientific advice, provided closer to the time’. See “the five tests here” https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/pm-press-conference-statement-on-the-five-tests-28-may-2020
The Federation of Holistic Therapists to which I am a member have put together some recommendations that they believe will help to minimise the risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19. All of them require a huge amount of costly and time consuming preparation between each client entering the therapy room and the need for both you and I to wear PPE. I do not feel that the recommended use of PPE I am required to wear will result in a professional or relaxing treatment.
So, until I am able to resume the high standards of treatment and care you deserve I will remain closed.
I will update this statement and highlight new information in BOLD as it is obtained.
Please do all you can to keep yourselves and others safe.

Testimonial from our local Osteopath
Lisa is a highly professional therapist, able to offer a range of treatments to suit a wide variety of people . As a professional Osteopath, I know when the treatment I receive is likely to be effective and Lisa is one of the few people I am happy to visit, knowing that I will get a good deal of benefit. She has a relaxed and methodic way of working, which puts her clients at ease and this adds to her effectiveness as a therapist in an environment which is clean, hygienic and ideally suited to the session. I share many patients with Lisa, who find the combination of her treatments and mine to be beneficial to their overall wellbeing. I know that they, as I do, would recommend her unreservedly.
Les Cox - Osteopath
A Century ago no one could have imagined the dramatic advances in modern medicine through the decades. Modern medicine has found a cure for many of the most devastating diseases, it has wiped out the bubonic plague and small pox.
So, why if orthodox medicine is the key to our health are we turning our backs on it in droves. One answer is that with each life saving drug we learn that the side affects can sometimes be more debilitating to our lives than the symptoms they are actually designed to alleviate, another is that we no longer feel in control of our own fate.
We are fortunate today in that we have a choice in how natural we want to live our lives and treat our ailments - regaining some measure of control over our health by taking a different path or taking back some power by opting for a element of self-help. This is not to say that orthodox medicine is to be poo pooed, most drugs have their place in the world and have made dramatic changes in the way we live and continue to survive.
We therapists often refer to our treatments as "Alternative Therapies", Lisa MacKenzie prefers to change the terminology slightly to "Complementary or Holistic Therapies", terms that incorporate the idea that these more natural treatments can work along side orthodox medicines not instead of.
Increasingly, people are also trying gentle self-help therapies like Massage, Daoyin Tao® and Aromatherapy to prevent Stress and tension before it has even taken hold - Prevention is better than cure. When we require relief from long-term pain or illness and orthodox medicine fails, therapies such as Indian Head Massage, Reflexology and Reiki can be the key to deeper relaxation and balance of the mind, body & spirit.

Consultation also allows Lisa to establish your needs and the outcome she hopes to achieve from the treatment, Lisa will also use this opportunity to explain the benefits of the treatment, its effects, how long it will take, how often you may need to come, any after care advice to reinforce the treatment at home and devise a treatment plan specifically designed to suit you.
