Gillian says …. My interest in health and wellbeing started with an early career in traditional medical support and in clinical research. I recognise the value of integrated and complementary practice and feel that a holistic approach to managing health, nutrition and beauty issues is paramount for overall good health and increased morale.
During consultation, clients often find that they have hidden emotional issues which have affected their physical health. They are surprised that a course of therapy, followed by a maintenance programme, can ease these issues and clear the way forward for a brighter future.
As a huge advocate of drinking aloe vera myself, I advise others to promote a daily healthy lifestyle. Clients find that aloe vera can improve an illness or injury, aid physical mobility, increase energy levels, boost the immune system, alleviate IBS, improve skin conditions, ease stress levels and increase feelings of calm and elation.
Gillian says …. 1. An older gentleman, who had suffered many years of ear wax issues and occasional tinnitus (he had previously had painful ear syringing and been advised this was not a regular option). He was suffering with continual daily ear discomfort which increased on holiday flights with the air pressure changes.
Despite being initially very sceptical of thermal auricular therapy (ear candling), he came initially for a couple of treatments ‘just to see how it worked’. On the second treatment, a huge amount of wax was shifted and he was amazed at how much easier his ears felt and after another couple of treatments his tinnitus had completely gone!
He now has regular treatments every 4-6 weeks, to fit around his many holidays, with great success for his ears and relaxation levels.
Gillian says …. 2. A mother, recently having given birth to her daughter, was feeling low with post natal depression. Her partner contacted me for advice and was sure she would love a makeup lesson.
She arrived for her lesson with trepidation, as she usually did not wear makeup and had no prior knowledge of its correct application but so wanted a boost! I relaxed her with a consultation and she felt at ease knowing that her lesson was with natural products and that my advice, on this occasion, was for ‘day-time’ makeup.
I showed her every stage of application, choosing her most suitable colours and keeping it simple to follow so that she could apply her makeup in the correct manner later – she was also interested to know how to tweak it for a subtle evening look.
She loved her new image, thought the aloe vera makeup was fabulous and went home with a beaming smile!
