Update From Sanity 29 June 2020
Unfortunately for the Holistic and Beauty Industry the Government has wrongly classified us as ‘massage parlours’, this has sent out an extremely insulting message to the 120,000 practitioners across 30,000 businesses who have qualified in the delivery of professional, hygienic and sterile environments from the day they open. We are not taking this decimation attempt to finish off our businesses and are currently petitioning and lobbying Parliament on this insult. We only have a week before the country opens again with many of us furious that our profession is being unfairly prevented from earning a living from the 4 July.
For the time being I am going to have to close my bookings due to the excessive workload in cancelling and rebooking, as it stands our Government has NOT provided a date in which we can open, this is creating a perfect storm for mental health practitioners who’s workload is significantly reduced by clients who turn to more holistic measures to deal with life’s challenges particularly after a pandemic lockdown.
Clients who feel as strongly as I about this insult can help by writing to our local MP Mohammad Yasin at – [email protected] and our Mayor Dave Hodgson at [email protected], any help would be greatly appreciated.
