Business Profile: Holistic Harmony Omagh

Can you describe your business?

Holistic Harmony offers a range of holistic treatments, reflexology, reiki, integrated energy therapy (IET), natural lift facial massage and Indian head massage. I have workshops for anyone wanting to learn reiki/energy work and I started a fertility programme last February, which consists of a mixture of reflexology and energy work. So far it has had a success rate of 65 per-cent.

Why did you start your own business?

I have always had a passion for everything holistic, but I never imagined I could make a living from it. When I was offered redundancy in my previous employment, I took it, and decided to take a leap of faith and follow my heart.

What are the best things about running your own business?

The flexibility. I have a young family and it’s great to be able to work my own hours. Also, getting to do what I love. I whole heartedly love my job and the people I get to meet. I never know who is going to walk through the door and I have met some amazing people.

What are the main challenges facing the business? 

As it’s only me, I can only work so many hours and it’s disheartening not being able to try and help everyone. It can be hard sometimes to switch off and have a good home/work balance.

What advice would you give to someone starting a business? 

Work out what you want to do and just go for it. Plan what you are going to do and try to stick to that plan as much as possible. Some people will be rooting for you, some won’t. Don’t let that put you off. They are not you and only you are responsible for your life and the decisions you make. Follow your heart and just go for it. “If you believe, you will achieve.”

Can you describe your experience of running a business in three words or less?

Rewarding, exhausting, humbling.
