I’m fortunate to have grown up in a household which embraced both natural (“alternative”) medicine as well as conventional medicine. Vibrational / energy healing has long been an area of interest to me, and I devoured the many books my father had collected on topics from colour therapy through to homoeopathy and enjoyed sitting in on workshops held at home.
Essential oils are among the first things I started embracing on the road to looking after my health more proactively and naturally, back in 2003.
After ending up in a career in IT by default rather than it being an area I particularly wanted to work in, an experience with using Sound Therapy to completely cure tinnitus I’d had for 12 years led me to start considering training more seriously in natural therapies. I devoured knowledge and completed qualifications in a variety of modalities, eventually launching my own natural health centre, Totally Sound Health. I discovered that running a company wasn’t my joy, and I’ve since closed the centre to focus on the aspects that I’m passionate about.
I now primarily focus on providing workshops to pass on the knowledge I’ve gained to others, though I do still see the occasional client by appointment. I’ve taken a break from offering workshops face-to-face while I work on moving these online (thanks covid!). Watch this space!
Here’s a few other health products and services I love:
- Butterfly TENS machine from ZoeTech – designed for period pain (and on researching options, this seemed the easiest to use), I’ve been using one regularly for muscular pain.
- Plan to Eat: Meal planning made easy! I store my recipes here, and it helps adjust quantities as needed and work out shopping lists.
