Description:
Brooke's Lounge, Holistic Care & Cafu00e9, will be offering a variety of services to help support and nurture people from all walks of life, with a large part of the business developed around the journey of Motherhood/ Parenthood. We will be creating a safe, inclusive, and comfortable environment for all, our staff have been carefully selected to ensure that customers feel that a personal rapport is made from their first visit to Brooke's and continues to grow from there onwards. As mentioned, Brooke's Lounge encompasses many holistic services within a premium and calm setting, the premises have been created to cater to all aspects of the business. When entering Brooke's Lounge holistic care and cafe via the automatic entrance doors our customer will be greeted by a friendly Front of House member located within the cafe area to the front of the building. We have worked extremely hard to ensure the aesthetics of the building are exciting and inviting to all, this will be reflected in both the wonderful team as well as the luxurious interiors. The cafe will be offering a brunch style menu with some exclusive specials utilising local produce, independent suppliers, and companies in the surrounding areas. We have made a very conscious choice to be as ethical and environmentally friendly as possible, offering a vegetarian and vegan menu options only. We have worked closely with a brilliant food consultant to create a unique and flavoursome menu which will cover all taste pallets. The menu will be updated and adapted to make the most of the seasonal produce from local suppliers, we will also be offering a variety of Coffees throughout the year working directly with the coffee farmers that do not have the widespread publicity and supplies like more mainstream manufacturers. We will be offering some of the products we use within the cafe to be purchased by customers to take home, alongside a brilliant variety of independent/ small business retail products that have been ethically sourced. To the right of the main counter in the cafe is a long corridor, first leading to the high spec wheelchair and buggy friendly toilet, there will be full baby changing facilities. Onwards from the toilet there is Beauty Therapy room, where our incredibly talented and experienced therapists will offer an array of massage, facials, tinting, waxing and reflexology. Brookes Lounge wants to encourage natural body image, body empowerment and self-care we have chosen treatments that will look after, replenish, and nurture the body itself rather than changing or enhancing its appearance. Services will also include specialised treatments/ massage for women who are pregnant alongside postnatal treatments, which is something that is lacking in the local area. Next to the beauty therapy room is the Counselling room, the company owner comes from a professional background of Counselling, with ten plus years of experience helped build and procure the idea of Brooke's Lounge. We will offer private counselling sessions and, in the future, we look to offer drop-ins/ crisis appointments as well as training for others looking to follow into the same profession. To the back of the building is the intimate studio space (8-10 people per session) for classes such as Yoga, Pilates, Fitness, Dance, Shibashi and Mindfulness. All class genres will cater for many age groups and abilities, alongside having specialised Mum/Dad and baby classes as well as pre and postnatal sessions. We will be offering classes throughout the day some starting at 06:30 am for those who work through the week and like to kick start their day with some good endorphins and later wind-down classes with the latest finishing at 21:00, we will be offering classes throughout the day also. Given the other aspects of the business we have been extremely conscious of the soundproofing needed to make the Counselling Room and Beauty Therapy room a quiet and serene setting while classes are in progress and the cafe is being operated. We have put in place all measures to ensure the sound does not travel to other rooms. The majority of classes such as yoga, pilates, shibashi and mindfulness use very light music (sounds of nature/ white noises) other classes such as fitness and dance will require more upbeat motivational music which will be kept to a reasonable volume level as well as being absorbed by the soundproofing that has been put in place. We will be offering various walk-ins and workshops with professionals in their selected fields, such as hypnobirthing, breastfeeding support, sling libraries, dula networking, home-schooling interaction days, alongside pop-up events for eco refill services and clothe swaps. Weekends especially Sundays we look to encourage families to use Brooke's Lounge as a venue for quality family time, we would also like to invite local artist and musicians to use the space to showcase their talents and music to create a fun and enjoyable environment for all. We hope to offer live music once or twice a month on Sundays.

Recorded Music Further Details:
We have been overly cautious to ensure that Brooke's Lounge is as soundproof as possible, due to the intimate and personal services we will be offering in both the counselling and therapy rooms, alongside the tranquil stting for classes in the studio. A large percentage of classes we offer will play very light background music (sounds of nature/white noise). We will be offering fitness classes pre and post work to cater those who work through the week as well as classes for young children and mum/dad with baby classes through the day, some of these classes may require some more upbeat music, but all sound pollution will be prevented via soundproofing within the building.
