Although I have been a complementary therapist for some years now, many of you will know that this summer I have had to carry out a number of changes, mainly in relation to rebranding my business. With effect from July of this year I am now trading under the name Penelope Morrison Complementary Therapies.
At first, the thought of starting my marketing and branding afresh was quite daunting, especially as it was a decision that was made for me. However, during the summer I have come to realise that this is a wonderful opportunity and have spent the last couple of months working with Sharon at Bee Spotted who has designed my new logo and is working on my new website, business cards etc and has the patience of a saint. I hope you love it as much as I do. The support and encouragement I have had from family, colleagues, friends and clients has been overwhelming.
I am hoping that my new website will be launched later this month, maybe even in time for World Reflexology Week (which runs from 21 – 27 September). The aim of the week is to promote reflexology; to show the many benefits from having a reflexology treatment. As the Association of Reflexologists have chosen the theme for this year as “Healthy Ageing” , and as it is also World Alzheimers month in September, I will be donating £10 from every treatment I do during World Reflexology Week to www.alzheimers.org.uk. Alzheimers is a condition that so many of us have been affected by or know someone who has. Contact me to book an appointment.
I have also spent the summer knitting and crocheting hats for Innocent Smoothies – keeping my fingers nimble to do reflexology treatments. It may appear to be a strange summer activity to some but has all been in aid of Age UK with 25p donated for every bottle sold helping older people stay healthy over the winter months. Take a look at the Big Knit site for more info and how you can join the knitters. I will shortly be sharing some photos of my progress so far on my Facebook page.
As well as my new website, facebook page etc, I have lots of other exciting things coming up in addition to all my existing treatments and workshops. I am looking forward to sharing news, events and my thoughts in a monthly blog – so watch this space.
