A New Year, A New You!

Changing Your Life by Changing Your Self 



Thank God January is behind us.  Now we can be more hopeful for better weather since we are getting closer to Spring.  It's amazing how we take mother nature for granted.  It's only when it's not so nice that we respect and give attention.  Anyway, it's all good because it makes us come straight to attention and take note of what really counts.   


Please be careful when walking in to Healthy Living.  Although our landlord, Island Properties really do a great job with shoveling, plowing and keeping the area safe, mother nature will always win by doing it's thing longer than any man's handy work.  There's plenty of parking in the back too.


Please keep your eyes peeled for Healthy Living Therapeutic Spa in the News onChannel 12 News on February 9, 8am to 12pm .  On friday January 28 Mary Mucci, host of an alternative health segment came over and interviewed me and one of our guests on CranioSacral Therapy.  It was pretty exciting and interesting.  I greatly appreciate all the clients that had scheduled appointments that day and their cooperation during the whole day.  Without your cooperation, we would not have been able to both shoot the segment and give you your treatments.  Amazing how what seems to be chaos can flow effortlessly and harmoniously when there is a unity of focus.  Thank you all.


Spa Membership

Members are really enjoying  our unique spa membership.   Everyone loves coming back again and again for just $59.99 during the month and snow birds love the flexibility to be able to suspend membership while  they're away. A big favorite is the 15% discount that can be used on services outside membership pricing as is the free session when reward points accumulate like an avalanche after just three personal referrals!  Life is good for the all natural health lover at Healthy Living Therapeutic Spa.


Something new you will be seeing on your email appointment confirmations and reminders is that a 24 hour notice cancellation is required to avoid a charge.  Everyone is really good with this, but we have had appointments made that become no shows.


Also, please read your receipts  and confirmation emails carefully and let us know ASAP  if any adjustments need to be made. 

Know your billing date and let us know of any changes to your membership before that date. 


Your membership experience is valuable,  We welcome your suggestions and ideas because we can always be better.

Dear friends and supporters of Healthy Living Therapeutic Spa,


Thank You so very much for being our customer, for being understanding, for being helpful, for being friendly in all the time I have known you.  The last few years have been particularly challenging business wise and I am grateful to still be here, available to all those with weary bodies and souls.  I especially am thankful for your support of my efforts in this life I have chosen for myself.  One can never be great alone or accomplish big goals alone, so thank you.  Whether you believe or not, you helped me.  A smile or a pat on the back, even one word of encouragement can change the most horrible feelings of doom.  


I have great hopes for the future and wish you all to receive even greater kindness and support than I have these past years.  2011 is yet another opportunity to grow in goodness, personal and professional achievement and Healthy Living Therapeutic Spa is here to help you while you brace yourself during the sometimes unavoidable bumps in the road.


With deepest gratitude,


Your devoted therapist, Yamil
