At FHT we believe every workplace should be committed to supporting staff health and wellbeing, which is why we have launched our own wellbeing month to remind us all of the importance of good physical and mental health.
Throughout June we are promoting health and wellbeing initiatives at our head office to coincide with Massage at Work Week (3-9 June), Aromatherapy Awareness Week (10-16 June) and Healthy Eating Week (10-16 June).
Laura Thomson, FHT’s facilities and wellbeing executive, says, ‘It’s all about feeling better in yourself at work, home and all aspects of life. If we take our own health and wellbeing seriously, we are better placed to support others and more effective in everything we do. We should be looking after our health and wellbeing all year round but sometimes we need a gentle reminder.’
As the UK’s leading professional association for complementary, sports and beauty therapists, we are well aware of how beneficial therapies can be for improving health and wellbeing, which is why we have started our wellbeing month by offering some much-needed treatments to our hard-working staff.
We had the privilege of welcoming FHT member Donna Allain to our head office, who offered reflexology, reiki and massage treatments to very grateful members of the team.
After experiencing a treatment with Donna, Karen Young, FHT Editor and Communications Manager says, ‘As someone who tends to opt for a back or aromatherapy massage, I’d forgotten how much I enjoy reflexology. A really relaxing treatment from a lovely, professional therapist – thank you, Donna!’
We look forward to other wellbeing initiatives in the coming weeks, including an aromatherapy refresher talk, wellbeing bingo, healthy eating options and a walking club.
Look out for more wellbeing month updates across our social media channels.
Whether you are looking for a complementary, holistic beauty or sports therapist, you can rest assured that all of the FHT members listed on our Complementary Healthcare Therapist Register and FHT Directory are qualified and insured to practise.
