sanctum celebrates our first birthday!

Come the 20th of October we are so very pleased to celebrating sanctum's very first birthday!!!
It is hard to believe that 12 months have gone by - it feels like it was only yesterday that we opened our doors.
Looking back it has been a big journey - one that we have thoroughly enjoyed. 
We are growing and evolving, changing and moving ahead.
And none of this would have been possible without the support of our wonderful Clients and the small, dedicated Team we have been blessed with.
As for me, I still genuinely love walking through the door every morning and I give sanctum a pat on the wall and a "sleep tight" every night.
Our challenge for October, was how to best celebrate this anniversary?
In the end, we decided to keep it simple......

Every Client who visits us during the month of October will go into a draw to win a 3.5 hour Spa Package - this includes:
a 90 minute Hot Stone Treatment, light Refreshments, a Full Body Exfoliation & Body Wrap and an Aromatic Spa Facial 
Refer a new Client to us and receive a further 2 entries into the draw! 
Make sure they let us know who referred them.
Do help us celebrate this milestone for our little business!

Therapist Clinic - Aromatherapy

Sandra Cahill is a local Therapist who is looking to complete her qualifications in Aromatherapy.  To do so, she needs to fulfil a certain amount of Clinic Hours in order to be signed off.  Here at sanctum that's just what we are trying to help her achieve.
We love our industry - and because we do, we look for ways to give back to it in some way.  One big way we do this is with training.  Training means that we are giving our Therapists the best chance to grow and improve their skills (and careers) and our Clients benefit as well, by being cared for by passionate, skilled and knowlegeable Therapists.
Sandra wasn't known to us before she asked for our help with her Clinic Hours - but we saw an opportunity to help someone in our industry get a foot in the door.
Sandra's challenge was finding a clinic that could take on a student as well as employ another Therapist with Aromatherapy Qualifications.
Luckily, she found us!
Over the next few months we will be offering a truly great value deal with Sandra.
If you have ever wondered about Aromatherapy - a term that is thrown about quite readily nowdays - then this is the best opportunity that you will ever get to experience this holistic therapy.
For only $25 you will receive:
A 15 minute Client Consultation
A 60 minute Full Body Aromatherapy Massage Treatment
A personalised blend of Essential Oils to take home

Help us help Sandra onto the next stage of her career!
Call now on 6333 8833 or email us here, to make an appointment or for more information on dates and times.

Thank you and a Closing Date for sanctum

Thank you to all the very lovely ladies who took advantage of our Flash Sale on Thursday.  Feedback was very positive and we hope that you all loved how your skin felt after our Aromatic Spa Facials with Jess.
Actually, to be honest, you were helping us out by taking advantage of the sale.
With our inhouse training for all our different treatments and services, we like to give our Therapists some good hands on experience before we start booking them up.  Jess got to hone her skills and is now looking forward to her next Facial Client!
The next Flash Sale won't be far away so keep an eye out!  We're thinking Reflexology this time!!

sanctum will be closed this Saturday 24th due to outside Teaching commitments.  We will reopen as normal as of Tuesday 27th with Sam at the helm.

Product Focus - Husk

Husk has been a favourite for us since way back in 2005. 
While building a Day Spa for Fernwood Womens Health Club just outside of Brisbane, we brought this range of tea's and homewares on board in the retail section.  So when we were creating sanctum and were looking at the ranges we'd like to sell, we knew just where to start!
Husk is an Australian Company based in Melbourne. 
They are quite well known for their stunning shopfronts (like here and here) and earthy, eco-savvy ranges of clothing and homewares.
At sanctum we chose to stock their lovely range of herbal teas (which we offer each Client after their treatments with us) and a selection of their hand turned ceramics.
Our current selection of tea includes:
lemon scented tea tree with hawthorn berries - fresh, uplifting and very tasty!
liquorice, peppermint and chamomile - bright, easy on the tummy and with just a hint of sweetness thanks to the liquorice
lavender, chamomile and hawthorn berries - relaxing, soothing and just right for before bed time for a great nights sleep
cinnamon, cloves, lychee berries, cardamon, ginger, purple marshmallow flowers and lemon balm - lots to love in this warming, herbaceous blend - great hot or cold
Green Lapacho
a smooth blend of green tea with a hint of vanilla
These are available in either a 50g tea box or a herbal tea multipack that is great value with five different teas plus an infuser.
To make tea time even better we also have available a selection of beautiful tea pots and tea cups.  These are made by a ceramicist for Husk and are truly beautiful to look and and to use.
So think of Husk, next time you are thinking of your next 'cuppa' or visiting us here at sanctum.
