Covid-19 Salon Guidance and New Measures in Place


SAFETY GUIDANCE
After 3.5 months of being closed, we’re so happy to finally be able to open our doors to you again!
We’ve spent time rearranging the salon and putting procedures in place to provide a safe space for you to enjoy that much-needed ‘me time’ and some well-deserved relaxation. Our changes include one-way floor signage, hand sanitiser stations, extra cleaning, a cashless and contactless booking system, and visors to be worn by all staff. As the government guidelines change, we will continue to align with them accordingly.
Please be aware that you will need to bring your own mask to your appointment and our toilet facilities will be closed for the time being (except for emergencies). It is recommended you use your own toilet facilities prior to your appointment.
All therapists on the premises have undertaken updated safety training and will be on hand should you have any questions or concerns.
Please ensure you review the below guidance prior to your visit.
Thank you and see you soon!
Roman Beauty Team

1. Your Appointment & Payment:
* Please book your appointment online here
* No cash payments. You will be prompted to enter your card details on our private & secure booking system prior to your appointment so we can ensure a smooth cashless checkout at the end of your appointment.

2. Appointment Requirements:
* Please arrive on time and alone
* If you arrive early, please wait in your car so we can finish cleaning
* Wash / Sanitise hands on arrival
* Bring your own facemask
* Bring your own bottle of water if needed
* Only bring minimal items to your appointment (no watches)
* No toilet facilities (emergency only)
* Please do not use your phone whilst here
* Please fill out your Covid-19 Screening Form which is sent to you at time of booking or can be filled out here
*If you are a new client booking your first appointment, you will also need to fill out your client consultation form here
* Please cancel your appointment if you develop a cough, high temperature, fever, breathlessness, sore throat, loss of smell or taste of food, or have been in contact with anyone showing Covid-19 symptoms within the last 14 days.

3. Hand Sanitiser Stations
Are located at the entrance for you to use on arrival with a full 20 second guideline sheet for you to follow. We have also added complimentary hand cream for you to use, if you wish.
3. Physical Distancing
Please follow government guidelines and keep a safe distance from others. Recommended 2 metre where possible or 1 metre with PPE. As our therapists offer close up treatments less than 1 metre we are require to wear visors for all appointments where a clear screen is not in place.
4. One-way System
Please observe the one way system in place and avoid congregating where possible. One way markings are layed out on the floor.
5. Venue Cleaning & Hygiene
Our staff will be regularly cleaning and sanitising all surfaces inbetween each and every client. They will then wash their hands prior to starting your appointment and after each appointment. All towels are freshly layed out for each client and washed at the recommended temperature of 60 degrees. Massage and Facial products are decanted prior to your arrival, and any waxing items such as strips and sticks are disposed of at the end of your treatment. For intimate waxing, we always wear gloves and have a ‘no double dipping’ policy to maintain high hygiene standards.
6. Treatment Room & Reception Area.
All non-wipeable equipment / chairs have been removed from the salon, and wipeable plastic boxes are now offered for you to place any items or clothing. There is no longer a waiting area to reduce congestion. All magazines have been removed from the salon, and our product display will be ‘view but don’t touch’ only. Please speak with a member of staff if you would like your own product brochure or to try any product samples.
7. Appointment Cancellations
We have a strict cancellation policy in place which requires you to give a minimum of 24 hours notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment to avoid late cancellation fees. This Policy is still in place with the exception of developing Covid-19 symptoms or any other contagious symptoms within the 24hours prior to your appointment. We politely ask that you do not abuse our cancellation policy as I’m sure you understand a small business cannot run on empty appointments.

8. Track & Trace
Our online booking system requires you to enter your name & contact details. We are required to hold these details both for your appointment itself, and to be able to share them with the NHS track and trace teams if requested.
These measures are subject to change in line with Government guidance. If you have any suggestions or concerns, please speak to a member of the team while at the venue.

Top Superfoods

DO YOU KEEP REACHING FOR CHOCOLATE? CRISPS? OR ARE YOU JUST OVER-INDULGING IN GENERAL? 
JOIN MY LIVE VIDEO TONIGHT AT 7PM TO LEARN WHY YOU KEEP CRAVING THESE FOODS AND HOW TO STOP IMPULSIVE EATING.

While in self-isolation, many of our ladies have been feeding back that they are eating more sugary foods than usual, that some have been reaching for chocolate, crisps or both every day! If you have found yourself doing the same, feeling guilty about it, knowing that it isn't doing your body any good right now, but still: you just cant stop, then I hear you!  For years, I have done exactly the same, adopting an 'all or nothing' attitude, either cutting things out completely or binge eating on junk food.  Finally at the start of this year I took the time to look at these cravings and what seemed like unstoppable behaviour, from an holistic angle (whats going on deep down that makes us have these urges) as it is only when we find the root cause can we find the solution. Tonight I share my findings with you; how I managed to stop craving chocolate, crisps and junk food and take control over my eating habits, but also how it interlinks with our own self care and self worth! Join me tonight for a live video at 7pm talking about our connection with food, cravings, and sugar cravings and how we stop the cravings by understanding them.
Click the link below now to join my private wellbeing hub on Facebook to ensure you are already added to the group in time for the Live video (if you cant make 7pm, you can catch up in the group on replay!)

The group also offers complimentary taster Meditation sessions, home pamper night tutorials and vidoes sharing knowlegde on various Holistic and  Wellbeing Topics.

In the meantime, we've listed 3 top superfoods below that you can add to your diet to help give your body the energy, vitamins & nutrients it needs.

You Are What You Eat

There is some truth to this old adage. Even if you have the best skincare and exercise routines, your appearance and health will suffer if you don't eat the right foods.
With the spring weather finally reaching us, many of us start thinking about having lighter meals rather than the rich, warming food we crave in the winter months.
But what should we be eating? Here at Roman Beauty, we've put together a list of some great superfoods you can try.


OATS
The days might be warmer but the mornings are still chilly. What better way to start your day than with a bowl of porridge or low-sugar homemade granola?
Oats are 100% wholegrain which means that all three layers of the grain - and all the original vitamins and minerals - are included too.
While cereals can be a mixture of ingredients and often packed full of sugar and preservatives, oats are simple, straightforward, and far healthier. They contain not only fibre but beta-glucan, a soluble fibre that can help lower cholesterol.
If neither porridge nor granola suits your tastes, then why not just sprinkle a handful of oats into your morning yogurt or over some fruit for breakfast?


SPINACH
Those of us of a certain age may remember Popeye the Sailor recommending spinach as a source of all his strength. While it might not give us bulging muscles, it's still a fantastic superfood.
The benefits of eating spinach are too numerous to list here, but of particular interest to Roman Beauty clients is the fact that spinach is an excellent source of vitamin A, which is beneficial for your skin. With these green leaves offering vitamin C and iron as well, eating spinach can help you feel great inside and look fabulous outside.



ALMONDS
These nuts are packed with a huge amount of nutrients as well as being high in healthy monounsaturated fats and vitamin E.
If you're on a diet then almonds make a great snack. Being low in carbs but high in fibre and protein, they'll make you feel full. One scientific study showed that those eating almonds lost more weight than those on a nut-free diet.
If you're going to snack on almonds, choose nuts that still retain their brown skin. This is because the best antioxidants in almonds are found in their skin. If you eat blanched almonds, you'll be missing out on all those valuable antioxidants which combat damage to your cells and help prevent aging, inflammation, and certain diseases like cancer.


LIVE VIDEOS ON FACEBOOK HUB

While in self-isolation, join us for a live video tonight at 7pm talking about our connection with food, cravings, and sugar cravings and how we stop the cravings by understanding them.
Join our private wellbeing hub on Facebook for taster sessions on Yoga, Meditation, and all Wellbeing related topics.

Enhancing Your Wellbeing at Home

Enhancing your Wellbeing at Home
FREE MEDITATION BELOW!

With all of us currently self-isolating at the moment, at Roman Beauty we have been using our creativity to come up with new and exciting ways we can bring relaxation, peace, and calm into your new home!

And so, our private (and free!) Roman Retreat Wellbeing Hub was born!




**Scroll to the bottom for your free 5-minute meditation to feel calm and relaxed**

Over the last week, we have been posting free daily mindfulness & meditation practises such as 'gratitude meditation,' 'flower meditation,' breath awareness,' and 'chime bell meditation' to help people practise mindfulness at home. We have also been posting guided beauty and pampering tutorials with step-by-step instructions and a follow along video of how you can:
**do your own scalp massage to increase blood flow to the hair to help reduce hair thinning and increase blood flow for healthy hair;
**do a facial massage which works over the pressure points in the face to release stress and tension;
**create a spa environment at home with candles, incense, relaxing music, and do-it-yourself pamper treatments.

Join our private wellbeing group here to access our FREE classes:
 

We have had such a great response on the group and there are currently 70 lovely ladies in our wellbeing hub community. See what some of them say after doing our short meditations:

"Thanks for doing these Laura, I'm grateful you're helping us all stay calm and happy during lockdown :) xx"

"That was really helpful... thank you! Woke up feeling pretty glum today and you've made me feel loads better. Really appreciate it. Will be watching it again (uninterrupted!) later this evening xxx"

"Thanks Laura really relaxing :-)"

"That was my first time meditating. I feel very relaxed and calm and ready to start my day. Thank you, I will be back."

Mindfulness at Work

Mindfulness to Stay Peaceful & Calm at Work
The days are starting to get lighter and a little warmer. But work can still feel like a grind, especially if we're inside all day.
For those of us who work at a computer, we can get back, neck, and head pain from bad posture. If you work in an office as well, it's unlikely that you'll be getting a full daily dose of Vitamin D from sunlight.
A little bit of meditation can help our bodies and our minds - and it's so easy to do, many of us can even do it at work! Even if you can't find the time to carry out a full meditative exercise, try smaller changes: after a fraught meeting or phone call, take a moment before you launch back into work to bring your focus to the breath, taking a few deeper breaths in to the body, and allowing yourself to fully relax on each out breath.  Thinking about all the things in your life that are good and that you are grateful for also helps take the focus back on to positive feeling thoughts.


Workplace meditation
There are plenty of ways to meditate without even moving from your desk.
To start off with, just close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing for 60 seconds. Make sure you've turned off the phone and silenced all notifications on your computer. Concentrate on your breath coming in through your nose, filling up your lungs. Hold it for a moment then gently exhale.
If it doesn't feel comfortable for you to close your eyes in the workplace, it is possible to meditate with your eyes open. Just pick a spot that is clear of distractions (so, perhaps, a plant or a spot on a wall) and focus on that instead.


Go for a walk
Those of us who work office hours inside a building are going to miss out on a decent daily dose of sunlight and Vitamin D. As such, when the weather is fine, take the opportunity to go for a walk. If you feel that the outdoors makes you particularly restful, you could even combine your walk with a spot of meditation in a park or on a quiet bench somewhere.
Alternatively, if you find it hard to relax in the bustle of city life, try downloading some nature sounds - the sea, waterfalls, birdsong - and listening to the tracks as you walk along or rest.


Ask for a guided mindfulness practice as part of your Roman Beauty treatment
Sometimes it's hard to relax and feel calm during your working hours, but Roman Beauty can help. We offer a variety of massages and holistic treatments that are especially tailored to meet your needs on the day, and also incorporate mindfulness practices as and when we feel you would benefit from it, or you can request a meditation at the start of your appointment, which your therapist will verbally guide you through to help you relax and shut off from the outside world or from an overthinking mind. Book an afternoon or evening appointment to have a relaxing end to a stressful day, or try a lunchtime appointment to get a well-deserved break during a long working day.

We are offering you £10 off any 1 hour Massage in March & April.

Are you a tired mum? Mother's Day Pamper Sessions

Are you a tired mum? Mother's Day Pamper Sessions
Are you a mum with small kids or teenagers?
Are you feeling really tired or exhausted?
Is it starting to manifest physically with aches and pains?
Would you like some time to switch off, to feel nice and relaxed for an hour where you don't have to think about anything or do anything?
Would you just like to feel a bit more like yourself again?


Genuine Mum Feedback
Our mum clients have given us the following feedback that a massage with us has:
*helped to lift their mood
*helped them feel more calm
*allowed them to relax and have time to feel like them again
*and their headaches have got less


Fitting in with your family
If, on an evening, you're rushing around trying to get tea ready and putting the kids to bed - don't worry. We offer plenty of daytime availability as we know it gives you more flexibility in the daytime to find childcare (maybe do a swap with a friend or relative where one of you looks after the kids whilst the other has a massage?)
*have a morning or afternoon appointment so you actually have the rest of the day to feel awake and enjoy the benefits from your massage.
*no trying to battle through traffic to get to us on an evening!


Treat yourself - or your own mum!

It's important for all mothers to carve out some me-time away from their families. But grandparents often do a lot of childcare too for busy working couples.
So, if your mum has been pretty spectacular this year in helping you out, why not treat her a Roman Beauty massage to say thank you for all her help and support?

We are offering you £10 off any 1 hour Massage in March & April.
(offer is available for daytime appointments between 10.30am-4.30am only).
