New at Studio 7!

It has been an age since my last newsletter so I hope you are well and the year is treating you to some lovely things. As quite a bit has happened in the last 7 months I thought it would be helpful to bring you up to date with what is new at Studio 7!

New at Studio 7

New at Studio 7! Advanced Raynor Massage Course
Brandon starting to inflict pain on me during the Advanced Course!

Advanced Raynor Massage Course: I attended the advanced course in May with Brandon Raynor himself and was blown away by the new skills I got to add to my toolbox. If you have seen me since May for a massage I have no doubt tried to tackle some of your tension with chop sticks (!) but I have also had a subtle shift in focus during my massages which has helped me give a better treatment (so I hope you agree!). Brandon has a ton of videos on YouTube so feel free to check them out!

Teaching: As well as my love of learning you will no doubt be aware I am passionate about teaching too and enjoy helping Dave Taylor teach Raynor Massage in Putney at regular intervals, Jan, Apr, May, Aug so far this year. We get great feedback from the students and I truly love watching people progress over the week(s) to fantastic hands on therapists. Roll on October!

Laundry: As you can imagine I get through a fair amount of laundry during a week and so I decided to switch my washing liquid to a slightly more environmentally friendly version, “Ecover”, which I am really pleased to say is doing a fabulous job with whites, towels and general oil! But before I turn into some cheesy advert for washing liquid I just wanted to let you know, I am always looking to reduce my impact on the environment and so I am always open to any new suggestions you might have.

Mindfulness: And lastly I am currently taking a 6 week course in mindfulness which is proving invaluable for me day to day and with Craniosacral clients too. As a few people have expressed an interest please take a look at Marcelle’s website, Brain Reframe, as she is an excellent teacher and solution focus hypnotherapist too!

I am sure I haven’t mentioned all that is new at Studio 7, but that is a little highlight! As we move into Autumn I hope you enjoy the change in season and I look forward to seeing you soon!

Health & happiness

  1. Yes that’s right Lori, you have not mentioned everything! Big shout out to Lori for her Deep Tissue Massages at Crystal Clear Retreats on the first weekend in September!! The feedback was really positive from our clients. Here is a review from one of then.

    “I had not previously had a Deep Tissue Massage so had a preconceived idea that it would be painful, a sort of “no pain, no gain” type attitude toward the opportunity, even though I had been assured that it would be a relaxing experience. Because I suffer with chronic pain, I was terrified, but Lori was amazing, she asked me what I felt able to do and she worked at a depth that was appropriate to my preference. We talked throughout the time that she was working on me, which was brilliant because she targeted the massage into the places that I needed it most and I just felt all of my tension fall away. I very quickly had total trust in her that I was in safe hands and she effectively loosened the muscles in my legs and back. It was very relaxing. Lori is friendly and sociable, very easy to get along with; I felt totally comfortable with her. I felt better able to cope with my day after having this wonderful experience” Lorna

    Here at Crystal Clear Retreats we do hope you can join us again Lori as you fitted in with our team so well providing a truly relaxing and friendly experience for our clients. Which is what we always aim to do.
