It was a rainy August morning almost 10 years ago, when I set out at 7.30am in my old Ford Focus with massage table in the boot, to drive from Leeds to Boroughbridge and treat my first client as a full-time massage therapist.
I was so happy to be finally doing what I’d dreamed of doing for many years, that even the fact I only earned £50 that day after deducting fuel and commission didn’t put me off. I just KNEW that this was my purpose, and I’d be doing this profession for the rest of my life.
Roll on 10 years, and the dream just keeps getting better and better! We now have 3 clinics based in Leeds, Barnsley and Holmfirth, and have seen over 2500 clients with issues ranging from Sciatica, Frozen shoulders, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis elbow, Whiplash Injuries, knee and hip issues, Neck Pain, Migraines, Persistent muscle tightness, Restless Legs, TMJ Jaw pain and many other conditions. Most of our clients have had a reduction in their pain levels, or in a lot of cases become pain free, without the need for medication. We have even had some clients who no longer needed surgery after having treatment with us, which is so rewarding for us and our clients.
Increased range of Therapies and Treatments
Over the years, I have been on numerous training courses to increase my knowledge and skill set with some of the worlds leading teachers in Myofascial Release and Muscle Activation Therapy, which has enabled me to deliver truly unique therapies to our clients based on their own specific journey. This has also led to me being employed by numerous Professional Football clubs and junior football academies, to assess and treat players of all ages, and educate them how to prolong their careers by implementing simple body work strategies that improve performance and reduce injuries.
I have also built a team of amazing therapists to cover all aspects of Holistic health and treatment, so that our clients know that from the initial consultation, right through to rehabilitation, we have everything covered. We have a top-class Physiotherapist who will diagnose symptoms and advise which treatment will be best suited for your needs, a team of massage therapists to deliver those treatments, and a Strength & Rehabilitation specialist to make sure your body is balanced and firing correctly so that you stay pain and injury free.
It’s a big achievement to last in business for 10 years, and even more so considering the upheaval all businesses went through over the last 3 years of Covid and lockdowns, so to say we are proud of where we are now would be a huge understatement. We are already planning for our next 10 years and beyond to make sure we are delivering consistent treatments to our clients, and providing the best possible service we can.
Plans for the Future
Going forward we are expanding into the corporate wellbeing sector, offering our amazing treatments in the workplace to reduce stress and improve moral and productivity. There are plans to host Wellbeing retreats towards the end of the year, and we are looking to launch an online platform that will have information and programmes for everyone to do, ranging from stretch routines while sat at your desk, to training programmes for elite level athletes. We are always looking to improve and expand the level of service to our clients, as you can see from what we have achieved over the last 10 years, and that will continue for as long as clients come to see us.
Finally, I’d like to say a huge thank you to all our clients who come to see us, experience the amazing treatments we do, and then tell anyone and everyone they meet about what we do. Your word-of-mouth referrals are our main revenue source, and the best recommendations any business can have, so thank you all again for your amazing support.
Here’s to the next 10 years……………………………
