OPEN DAY INVITE: SAT JULY 8th to new world-class Treatment Centre in Essex





Local award winning business launches new Treatment Centre in Essex to cope with demand in business.

Patients travel across the world to come for the life-changing treatment

  • 14m people living with pain in the UK

  • In 2016, 31m working days were lost due to back, neck and muscle problems

  • Transformational yet to date undiscovered treatment Myofascial Release provided by the specialist therapists at Holisticare, gives dramatic and long lasting results to patients who suffer from conditions ranging from PTSD, anxiety, chronic pain, sports injuries, pregnancy and palliative care

Archant Uttlesford Business Award Winner, Holisticare, is giving a helping hand (by the means of a £1660 cheque) to St Clare Hospice and is hosting an Open Day on Saturday 8th July from 3pm till 5pm.

Holisticare was a finalist for Small Business of the Year category and the Winner of the Judges' Award which is awarded to the business that the Judges of all the awards feel show great potential for 2017 and is "One to watch". The award was presented by Dunmow Broadcast and Saffron Walden Reporter's very own Essex Editor Will Lodge. Holisticare is a centre of excellence in Myofascial Release which can change the lives of people who think they can't be helped, in a safe, caring, relaxing and expert environment.

At the Open Day Holisticare will be displaying the award. There will also be a display of every entry of their recent "Helping Hands" Art Competition in aid of St Clare Hospice and the winners and placed entrants will receive their prizes and certificates. Holisticare owner, Nikki Robinson, will present St Clare with a large cheque as a result of three months of fundraising including the art competition and a Quiz Night.

Nikki said, "I was delighted that we were finalists in the Small Business of the Year award. It has been a very busy and exciting year at Holisticare, expanding our team and moving into larger premises with more treatment rooms and in-house studio for group treatments, classes and hire. We continue to add to our expertise with regular training and even this week we have a therapist going to the USA for a two week course. We are excited to win the Judges' Award because it means our passion for our specialism is being recognised. We know we are good at helping people reduce pain, tension and inflammation, making a positive impact on our patients' lives, and with our expansion we are now able to treat more people and really are one to watch. We would love to hear from people who want to know more about Myofascial Release Treatment and our Open Day is the perfect opportunity to talk to us."

Holisticare chose to support St Clare with a "helping hand" as part of the St Clare £50 Challenge and raised a very healthy £1660. Both St Clare Hospice and Holisticare treat many people from the Uttlesford area and beyond.
