Juice and well-being studios, Tree on Stodman Street, Newark, encourages zest for healing
A one-stop studio encouraging a zest for well-being and internal healing has officially opened to the people of Newark.
Described by its owner as a destination missing from the high street and just what people need following the pandemic, Tree Juice Bar and Wellbeing Studios — on Stodman Street — is a space where you can relax, take five minutes and re-charge.
Owner Abigail Baird, a holistic and massage therapist with ten years' experience, has partnered with her mum Wendy Baird — the familiar face of Carriages Café — for the venture, and are assisted by their lovely team in the juice bar.
Things are taken care of in the juice bar while Abigail deals with of the healing side of the business in the rooms upstairs, filled with aromas that could literally soothe the soul.
"This is magical space where I perform my therapies but it is also designed for any type of well-being practitioner to come on in and hire the space," said Abigail.
"We've got a good range of rooms for one-on-one therapies to having ten clients in one room, whatever your desire is really — from counselling and massage to Reiki and sand baths, we just want to bring a sense of well-being to Newark.
"The pandemic has impacted everyone's well-being somehow and after that time we believe everyone deserves a slice of what we've got in store for them."
Abigail performs anything from a back massage, hot stones and warm bamboo to fire cupping and Indian head or pregnancy massage. Plus, all treatments are accompanied by a foot ritual and consultation.
Tree is free from any unnatural beauty treatments and therefore offers a natural facelift and Gua Sha — a traditional Chinese practice.
There is also a thermal sauna coming soon, which you can experience on its own or add on to your treatment.
"Tree is the tree of well-being," said Wendy. "We are planting a tree — a place to breathe and grow."
Wendy explained the four Bs as far as taking containers away from the juice bar are concerned.
"You can either bring your own, buy one of ours, borrow one — you can rent it and pay £3.50 with the hope they will use it again and come back — or bin it, but people will have to pay a 20p premium.
"It's a little bit different but we're hoping it will work and we can extend it to the juices as well as the coffees, and then maybe salads as well."
Aiming to be as environmentally friendly as possible, Tree has also asked the council for a compost bin for its fruit and veg scraps as Wendy's one is already full.
