I am sooo excited. And, needless to say, slightly nervous about the move to the seaside ON FRIDAY!!!!
But, it's going to be great and we should be set up for treatments from next week in Littlehampton so get in touch if you want to get booked in by the sea.
I'm looking forward to exploring the area with some river and seafront running, dog walks, open water swimming and hopefully getting signed up with a local triathlon club as well as getting things up and on track.
I'll be offline for a while whilst the move happens (currently the only sea I am dealing with is a sea of boxes) but feel free to give me a call on 07725 334604.
The clock is ticking on my move to the seaside!!
Appointments can be booked online and with me for Didcot appointments until the end of June. From the end of June Didcot appointments will need to be booked via me on a first come first served basis for my commute up here for the first weekend of the month (Saturday and Sunday appointments). First weekend at a new venue in Didcot will be 6th and 7th July 2019.
From July appointments will be available at my studio which is being relocated to Littlehampton, West Sussex and I will also be offering treatments at other venues TBC.
Get in touch for more details or to book your appointment.
What's stopping you from treating yourself to feeling better?
Nights are drawing in and the studio is heaven scent with lovely NEOM candles and oils, why not come and try a bit of sensory heaven?
Treatments here are tailored to getting you feeling better, whether you're out of action from sports due to injury, getting cranky with the kids because you've got a sore back, or you just simply need to take time out to feel relaxed and revived.
Daytime and evening appointments can be booked online at www.charlottelattinmassage.com so you can get yourself booked in now, without even leaving your seat.
So go on, book yourself in and love yourself and live your best life.
New gift vouchers are on their way soon too so come and have a look or get in touch if you know someone who needs a bit of TLC or timeout.
Spread the love!
Well it will be as of tomorrow when the air conditioning is here!
It has been pretty warm the last couple of weeks and we've been feeling it in the studio. It is useful to carry out massage in the warm as it does help muscles to loosen off easily and can assist in treatments BUT maybe it's been a bit too warm out there in the studio - thanks for those who have put up with the heat in the evenings recently and you can now look forward to a more comfortable massage.
It can be difficult to train in this weather so take it easy if you're still out running/cycling etc. Try to avoid the hottest heat of the day and make sure that you warm up and cool down, even though it is warm out, in order to avoid straining any muscles.
Whilst muscles are loose in this weather it can also lead to issues such as swelling/oedema and to dehydration so make sure you are taking on enough water and being aware of your body and how it reacts to the heat.
With the impact of the heat on those tired feet that are now often in flip-flops, this month's offer is a free foot massage as part of all holistic treatments - just quote code #hotfeet when you book in!
Enjoy the sunshine and keep a look out for next month's offer (it's a good one for those who want a facial with their massage).
So this is perhaps an odd post but I've made the decision to come off social media.
Is this a crazy decision based on the fact that I am a small business and we are constantly told that we NEED to be on social media? I'm not sure but I'm giving it a go.
I often talk about not liking our reliance on social media and technology and I'm usually pretty negative about it. I have carried out some research (yes, the geeky psychologist side is coming through) and just don't think it's that great for us.
In line with my goal to make small changes that make me feel like I am following the values that I think are important I thought I had better give this a go...I'll keep you updated but here are some of the reasons:
1. I kind of like people - REAL people that I can interact with. Whilst I like to see what people are up to I do bemoan the lack of proper communication, both inside the home and outside.
2. It's bad for the brain. This is backed up by many studies but I know I can't concentrate easily when I've been flicking from one thing to the next without really paying attention.
3. I have seen quite a few physical issues caused by overuse of neck muscles (looking down) and the old scrolling down can lead to wrist pain.
4. I'd quite like to feel that the time I have is used INTENTIONALLY...how many hours have you lost to mindless drifting online?!
5. I don't want my kids to be on social media all the time. This is a big one and probably the real driver. It's not great for attention and I'm not sure the filters on life are helpful to those growing up. I know this is our life now but I for one want to cut down my reliance on it and be able to say it without feeling too hypocritical!
I'm not suggesting you guys do this and it may turn out to be hard - I'll let you know - but if you can't get hold of me in the usual way this is why (I haven't mass blocked you!)
I do still want to see you all and welcome new clients so feel free to share my email address and website details if you know someone who 'kneads' (haha) a massage or constantly complains of aches and pains.
