Health & Beauty Club

Posted by on in Uncategorized

January saw the launch of the On The Bench Health & Beauty Club and I'm proud to say it was a big success!

What's the big idea?

I have established the club as a way of sharing information and products relating to health, beauty and wellbeing with my clients through a free 90-minute interactive seminar. Each event also includes a workshop relevant to that month's theme. The Club allows you to find out more about specific topics, sample products and discuss different themes with like-minded individuals.

Winter Wellness

Our January meeting covered the subject of Winter Wellness. We discussed natural alternatives to cold and flu treatments, supporting the immune system with a healthy diet, the importance of Essential Fatty Acids for general health as well as their role in healthy skin and looked at some Essential Oils to lift our spirits through the dark and dingy winter months.

We also enjoyed some pampering with a Winter Skin Survival Workshop which involved each guest giving themselves a nourishing facial treatment using products which help combat the harsh conditions our skin has to deal with in these cold, wet and windy months. Everyone left looking radiant and feedback included a guest describing the evening as "a very uplifting experience" and another saying it was, "just what I needed in this miserable weather". Each guest went away with a free product sample to review for the next session.

It's Not Too Late!

If you missed January's club and feel you would like to know more, you can still book your own Winter Wellness Workshop with me. Just gather a few of your friends and family together and I will come and present the workshop, including the pamper session, in the comfort of your own home. Alternatively, you may book to attend at On The Bench's premises (subject to availability). To find out more, please call 01329 280944 or drop me an e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

What's Next?

The date is set for this month's club: Wednesday 26th February at On The Bench. Due to demand, I am offering 3 sessions throughout the day - 10am, 4pm and 7pm. As space is limited, booking is essential so please call 01329 280944 or e-mail sam@on-the-bench and let me know which time you would like to book in for and if you will be bringing a friend.

This month's theme is "Everything's Coming Up Roses!" We will explore the amazing healing properties of Wild Rose and Rosehips, the therapeutic properties of Rose and enjoy a deeply nourishing Wild Rose Beauty Balm Facial and learning some of the many other uses for this wonderful multi-purpose product. Rose is a popular scent and as a result is a popular choice when choosing gifts for Mother's Day (30th March). A discount will be available on the night for products ordered so it's a great opportunity to find the perfect gift!

Can't Make it?

If that date doesn't suit you, then why not book your own event for you and your friends and let me come to you! Please contact me for more information and availability.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Happy New Year!

Posted by on in Uncategorized

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy, healthy, peaceful and prosperous New Year and thank you for your continued support throughout 2013!

Reflecting on 2013

It has been a great year for On The Bench starting with the move to Fareham in February, seeing the addition of Holistic Facials to the treatment list and ending with me completing my Foundation Level training in Systematic Kinesiology and achieving my goal to reach Team Leader status as an Independent Consultant for Neal's Yard. And it's been a fantastically busy year in the clinic too with many new clients added to the ranks of the loyal customers who have stuck with me through the years. Thank you again!

Looking Forward to 2014

The New Year is already looking rosy with plenty of pre-bookings in the diary and more courses lined up to develop my existing therapies and hopefully add a few new skills to the list! My Neal's Yard team is growing which means if you would like to book a Pamper Event I now have additional consultants available giving greater flexibility on dates. Please contact me for more information on 01329 280944 or visit my Neal's Yard website.

Price Rise

After 6 years, I have finally had to put my prices up by a small amount. Please look out for the newsletter with full details and the website will be updated very shortly too.

Once again, Happy New Year to you all and I look forward to seeing you in 2014.
