Tell me a little about yourself in a few brief sentences.
I am 46 and have been married to Pete for nearly 20 years. We have 15 year old twin boys and a 12 year old daughter. I qualified as a Physiotherapist from Birmingham in 1993. I enjoy traveling, amateur dramatics, horse riding and writing.
When did you start your business and what was your inspiration for doing so?
2006 Having left the NHS when I had my children, I was ready to start using my brain again when my daughter started playgroup. So I began Holisticare 2 mornings a week from home and it gradually grew from then.

Tell us a little about your business and why people should use it?
Holisticare specialises in Myofascial Release – a safe, gentle, hands-on treatment that works with your body to untangle the restrictions that cause pain, tension and inflammation.
Treatment during pregnancy allows space for the baby to position themselves correctly for a normal delivery, and can relieve symptoms such as pain and stiffness.
Treatment after delivery helps your body to recover from the birth and supports you in caring for your new baby.
Treatment for your baby ensures that as they grow they are not compensating for any restrictions the occurred during birth. It is also very effective in helping colic, head shape changes and many other conditions.
What is your favourite plant/flower and why?
Japanese Maple – interesting leaves, beautiful colours, different every time you look at it
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Playing Words with Friends
What would you invent for new parents?
A second pair of hands
Anything new coming up that we should know about?
We are taking bookings for the next Free Yourself Hour – a series of six 1 hour classes that focus on your body and mind and teach you how to work with them instead of against them.
