October Newsletter

The trees are in their autumn beauty, The woodland paths are dry, Under the October twilight the water Mirrors a still sky.

River Holistic October Newsletter

Wow… this has to be one of my favorite months.  It’s a time for change and beauty, which is so fitting for us here at River Holistic.  We have transformed our centre into a beautiful tranquil space just for you.  We closed our doors for a week at the beginning of September to let our new chapter here at the Centre unfold.  We can’t wait for you to come in and experience the transformation.
We will be holding an open evening next month, so you can come in and meet the amazing team of therapists and teachers who I have the honour of calling my Holistic Family.  If you are interested in getting an exclusive invite to this then please give us a call and we will put your name down on the VIP list.  All will be revealed soon.
As always, I am so grateful to everyone for making this Centre the tranquil space it is today.
Look forward to seeing you all real soon,
Claire
