After many years of hearing family and friends say "you should do this for a living", I decided to take the plunge and start North Star Complementary Therapies.
Why North Star?" I hear you say? Well before the modern age of radio, radar and satellite there was celestial navigation. Using the sun, moon, planets, and stars to guide your journey. Whilst the position of the moon, planets and stars constantly appear to move, there is one star that navigators reliably find time and time again to get their bearings and set their course - the North Star!
What does this have to do with complementary therapies? I believe these therapies can be your North Star. Our lives today are so busy and hectic, we push our minds and our bodies to their limits time and time again. As a result our bodies ache, our minds get in a twist, and our emotions become a whirl. We find we lose our way and don't always end up where we thought we would be. We need help to get ourselves back on track.
I believe complementary therapies play an important role in maintaining our sense of well being. A body in pain can fray tempers, cause feelings of frustration, despair and at times depression. Likewise, a mind in turmoil can cause pain in the body. It's all interconnected, one always affects the other. That is why it is important to treat you as a whole, not a series of symptoms. Massage, Aromatherapy, Reiki and Reflexology can help you to reconnect with your body and provide with space to settle your mind and emotions. It's a bit like pressing the reset button, encouraging your body & mind to heal itself.
I also believe the healing power of essential oils should be within everyone's grasp. That is why you will find the essential oils available in my shop are reasonably priced. This does not mean they are not quality oils. My essential oil supplier is a member of the Aromatherapy Trade Council, International Federation of Aromatherapists and International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists, and supplies over 5000 therapists and 40 training colleges in the UK.
