Why are we crowdfunding?
The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for them to survive. Together we can help them.
Crowdfunder are offering up their platform to allow all UK small businesses to pre-sell their services for cash now on a promise to redeem these at a later date and we are so grateful to them for this opportunity.
On Friday the 20th March we had to close our doors because of the restrictions put in place by the UK Government. All our attendee's favourite classes had to be cancelled, all our regular client's treatment sessions had to be cancelled and all our learner's practical training dates had to be cancelled for the foresessble future, understandable of course, as our priority was and is the safety of everyone :-)
Although the UK Government has annouced what appears to be a generous package of relief for the business community either that relief is not reaching businesses quickly enough or they do not qualify and in the meantime even though revenue has disappeared overnight overheads remain the same and need to be paid, things like rent, utilities, insurances and professional fees. This is not for us to pofit from a horrendous global situation but to simply cover our overheads until the storm passes :-)
As a businesses we are fighting back and using this incedible platform and opportunity to generate advanced sales of our services to ease the immediate pressure. Our aim is to be proactive and take matters into our own hands to ensure that our doors can reopen when safe to do, so that we can continue to provide essential therapeutic, stress management, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness and education services to our local communities and beyond.
As a small independent business owned and operated by Joanne and supporting a number of self employed therapists, facilitators and tutors who also consider us their home, we'll struggle to meet our outgoings if we suffer a prolonged period of closure.
Whilst we hope that this shutdown will not last for too long we are preparing for the reality that we may have to close for up to 12 weeks :-( or longer!. Because we work hands on, face to face and specialise in seeing clients who are battling chronic illness or are pregnant, and teaching and assessing learners we need to plan and prepare for worst case scenario, hence the action plan of crowdfunding and taking what services we can online in the coming weeks...
From the heart....
Here's a few thoughts about us from some of our clients and learners:
"I've never felt so good,I've had no pains or aches, not felt this good for 20 years + xxx" (Louise V)
"I recently attended the sound bath meditation class. Oh it was absolutely lovely, I really enjoyed it and submerged myself into the deepest meditation I’ve had to date. Great use of instruments and a lovely warm comfortable environment. Highly recommended. Thank you Jo" (Tracy B)
"If you would like to learn at a pace that suits your current life in a non-judgemental and tranquil environment you should look at booking your course here. Joanne Lee is the most encouraging, professional tutor and it is my pleasure to continue to grow on my Reiki journey with her guidance." (Marcia H)
"Just had a crystal facial, omg amazing. Just what was needed, Joanne is amazing talented. Thank you x" (Jayne Ann D)
"I recommend The Full Spectrum Centre for it all does, as I always get the well-being factor when I visit." (Bernadine H)
"My mantra is "You are never too late to learn" and The Full Spectrum Centre in Dukinfield will support and encourage you every step of the way! It is clear from the beginning that the tutors have passion and want you to reach top potential. I began my learning journey at the Full Spectrum Centre 3 years ago and have never looked back, I have grown so much as a student and graduate. The courses offered are in-depth, challenging and engaging! I recommend The Full Spectrum Centre 100% to anybody with aspirations to work in the industry. 5***** is an understatement! Bravo to The Full Spectrum Centre" (Vicky D)
"I cannot recommend highly enough. Before I came here I’d always wanted to treat myself to a massage but being a larger lady I felt a bit intimidated and too self conscious to try the usual beauty salons. I started here trying out reflexology to help with some aches and pains and haven’t looked back since. I now enjoy a monthly treat with Jo and have tried all sorts of treatments. Every experience is heavenly, the rooms are so relaxing and comfortable with mood lighting and soothing music and the staff are all down to earth friendly and very knowledgeable. I alternate my treatments now whether it be just for some me time, a pamper or a specific treatment for my pain relief. Whatever you need I can recommend you will be very well looked after and they have such a huge range on offer there is something to suit everyone. I’m so pleased I discovered The Full Spectrum Centre." (Michelle D)
"I found The Full Spectrum Centre at exactly the right time and over the years it’s become a staple in my life. I’ve been to meditation classes and found complete peace. I’ve had reflexology, massage, Indian head massage and facials here and it’s my go to place to feel better when my bones are aching or I need some relaxation." (Claire D)
