Increased cancellations and an increase in abnormal skin reactions are being seen in salons and clinics.

January 23, 2023

Since the middle of 2022, APAN has recorded an alarming rate of persistent and progressive increase in cancellations reported by salons and clinics across all states.

Additionally, businesses are also perplexed at the rise in skin inflammation, rashes, dry and reactive skin conditions, as well as an increase in symptoms of fatigue from many of their clients. 

This is causing a great deal of stress as well as business disruption for many business owners.

So, is there a solution?

We are pleased to report that business owners and practitioners who have accessed APAN’s COVID SKIN MANIFESTATIONS AND SOLUTIONS KIT are relieved to finally gain a better understanding of the contributing factors through reliable evidence-based information.  

The 68-page document provides credible information based on a review of over 80 studies that investigated the common bodily systemic changes that many are experiencing as a result of the whole COVID environment.

Additionally, in Section 2 of the document businesses are able to access simple strategies on how to support their clients, families, and friends on their journey to recovery.

“It’s not just the clients, many of the business owners we are speaking with are personally experiencing fatigue, brain fog, hair loss, poor sleep, aches and pains and other symptoms that are associated with COVID long-haul,” Tina Viney said. 

This is not the time to ignore these symptoms and hope they will go away, as studies confirm that up to 75% of people who have experienced COVID will experience these symptoms, it is therefore important that businesses and their staff access this information so that they can provide a new level of hope and support to their clients.

The COVID SKIN MANIFESTATIONS AND SOLUTIONS is also supported with a video presented by Professor Laurence Walsh, and it can be accessed for a fee of $495.  It will also be soon available as a study course. 

I am eternally grateful to APAN for the incredible wealth of information available in this kit.  It answered many questions and we immediately added new protocols on how to support our clients in areas where we previously did not know how to address them. 

This information has also helped us build trust and accelerate our clients’ respect for our knowledge in supporting them at this time. This kit is a must for all business owners. Jane Lewis – Advanced Skin Therapies, WA
