Wall of Celebration 2019
I got through a really horrible situation with a client which made me think a lot about whether I wanted to do what I do, and have turned it into an opportunity to make huge changes to my practice - and used that positive energy to make huge changes in my life.
I’m feeling more positive about everything than I have in many years. And yes, I want to do what I do!
I’d like to celebrate achieving Treatwell Top Rated for the second year running.
And also achieving Top 3 massage therapists in Harrogate by Three Best Rated.

I’m delighted to have been appointed to the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) profession specific board for Massage Therapy.
This means that I will play a role in shaping national policy and raising the profile of massage therapy in the UK.
I want to celebrate moving in the last year to a new area where I had to start from zero in building up my client list.
10 months in, I have several regular clients and a couple of really lovely success stories.
I'm doing 20-24 sessions per month and it's growing steadily all the time. 80% of my clients’ rebook on the day.
After 26 years of practicing holistic massage I’m now slowing down to 2 days per week. I have sold my clinic and will be a therapist once again. I have worked incredibly hard networking over the years and built up the reputation of holistic massage in my area of Worcestershire as a professional quality service. I worked closely with GPs, health visitors and many healthcare professionals.
My greatest achievements were becoming an MTI tutor and a well holistic health care tutor in many adult education establishments. I pioneered baby massage in antenatal groups long before it became popular. I provided onsite holistic massage to West Mercia Police for 5 years and gave Worcestershire an integrated holistic healthcare centre which I managed as well as practiced 5 days per week. My life as a holistic therapist is fun, rewarding and financially successful.
I would like to celebrate being one of the speakers at the inaugural Integrative Health Convention in London last October, where I was able to share knowledge as an MTI massage therapist on a holistic approach to massage with other complementary therapists and GPs. This led to Dr Toh Wong, one of the organisers, becoming the Keynote Speaker at our 2019 Conference, and Earle and I hosting a workshop on integrative health care.
I would like to celebrate, like Gerry, being a speaker at the Integrative Health Convention as well as influencing, on behalf of MTI, the recognition of complementary health at a parliamentary level.
