Delighted to open the latest issue of the International Therapist Magazine and found that I am mentioned a couple of times!
Anne-Marie is a bronze health hero
I am delighted to have recently won a Bronze Health Hero Award. The Health Hero Award, run by Total Wellness Club, is achieved by gaining more than 10 customer reviews with an average score of more than 4.5 or more out of five.
Total Wellness Club director Neil Fellowes said: "Our work helps people see what works for their health, fitness and well-being. People see a therapist, go to a gym or buy a product online. They then leave reviews on our website. These reviews help other people make more informed decisions about their health.
"When a health provider, such as Rose Holistic Treatments, gains recognition from their clients, we like to recognise that. It shows that they are doing valuable work. This is why Rose Holistic Treatments own the Bronze Health Hero Award."
It is wonderful to receive such positive feedback. It's always rewarding to hear that clients feel confident about visiting me for massage and reflexology, that they value their visits highly, and that I help them feel relaxed. I'm also delighted that they rate the level of care they receive as exceptional.

Therapy support for Ben's mammoth marathon challenge
Two FHT members provided much needed therapy support to runner Ben Smith, as he completed a staggering 401 marathons in 401 days towards the end of 2016.
Annette Rainbow, MFHT, and Anne-Marie Rose, MFHT, both helped Ben with massage along the way, while he ran more than 10,000 miles to raise in excess of £300,000 for charities, Stonewall and Kidscape, and increase awareness of bullying.
'I massaged Ben after his 80th marathon in November 2015 in Oxford and after his 397th marathon in October 2016 in Salisbury. It was such a great day seeing Ben again and Kyle, who organised everything behind the scenes. Their drive and passion is so inspiring.'

'I was delighted to have offered Ben a massage when he was in Bath after his 373rd marathon. Ben said "A massive thank you to Anne-Marie for my relaxing massage tonight, almost fell asleep, lol. It was so nice."
