YOUR HEALTH EXPO @ HAWKES BAY HOSPITAL!
Lotus Holistic Centre was invited to the Hawkes Bay Hosptial (DHB) brand new event - "Your Health Expo". It included stalls from all sorts of providers from Sport HB, 'It's Not OK', Cancer Society and LOTUS! We were pleasantly surprised when we were bombarded with admin staff, nurses, lab technicians, HR managers, physios, psychiatrists, and many other staff members from the Hawke's Bay hospital to receive complimentary hand massages.
This was a great opportunity for us to let our District Health workers about the benefits of massage, naturopathy, and natural remedies - and hopefully make a positive difference in the way they provide care for our people.
The massages were greatly receieved by the expo attendees (in fact, many of them were running back to their stations and insisting that their colleagues go and see the Lotus Holistic Centre stall)!
We look forward to next years expo, and have been asked by the organisers to bring a lot more massage therapists (and naturopaths), which will most certainly be doing - with bells on!!
MASSAGE AWARENESS WEEK!
Busy Hawke's Bay shoppers got an unexpected chance to slow down and take a weight off over the weekend, thanks to free massages being offered by the Hastings-based Lotus Holistic Centre and Body Bliss. More than 100 people took the chance to get a free massage while they shopped at The Warehouse and the Bay Plaza in Hastings. The massages were offered for free as part of Massage New Zealand Awareness Week.
Many people experienced massage for their first time, and plenty of children gave it a go, too. One happy customer, Andres from Hastings, said "I feel so much better", and will be heading to Lotus Holistic Centre to get some more regular massage therapy.
Lotus Holistic Centre business manager Cathy Allan was thrilled with the turnout from the public, and their willingness to try receiving a massage. She said her organisation was particularly interested in raising awareness of the benefits of massage. "We are trying to make people aware of how beneficial massage can be, especially those with postural stress due to working at a computer all day, lifting heavy things often (including children), or just from the pressures of life," Ms Allan said. Every year, Massage New Zealand has a different theme for their awareness week. This year the focus is on anxiety/stress, and how massage can help in releasing tight muscles that result in poor posture and additional physical problems if the issue is not dealt with. Lotus Holistic Centre is currently enrolling students for their 2015 full time and part time massage courses. "Getting a massage almost every day for a year is a great way of studying, if you ask me!" Ms Allan said.
