Portrait No 32 – Jacqueline, Holistic Healer and Spiritual Artist

As you will already know this project is all about people that have turned a hobby or passion into a career. For Jacqueline her business is much more than a passion, its a spiritual journey that she feels is only at the beginning. She’s very open to where that journey may lead her and she brims with passion and enthusiasm when she talks about the varied but interlinked strands of her business.

As well being a recently qualified Reiki Master Jacqueline offers various forms of holistic therapy, including aromatherapy and crystal healing, from her studio in a lovely old building in Rossendale and is soon to be offering meditation classes. As if all that doesn’t keep her busy enough she is also a talented spiritual artist. As well as paintings she showed me some beautiful works in textile.

Although Jacqueline’s business seems to consist of quite diverse strands they are all underpinned and connected by her strong spiritual beliefs and I can’t wait to see where her journey will take her !

Jacqueline’s business is Semple Angelic – her website can be found here and she can be found on Twitter as @Sempleangelic.

Portrait No 15 – Tracy, holistic therapist

Tracy is the second of the three lovely ladies I met in Bollington recently. Lots of the people I have met for this project have undergone a fairly dramatic career change but on the surface Tracy’s seems the most drastic, from genetic research scientist to holistic therapist. Once Tracy explains her research and the ethos of her new business you actually realise that there is a very strong connection with both aimed at improving health and wellbeing.

Tracy treated us all to a mini head and shoulder massage and it was an amazingly relaxing experience, we may have been sitting in an artist’s studio but I was so relaxed I could have nodded off even with the others chatting around me !

Having been made redundant late last year Tracy made the decision to pursue what had previous been a passion, she has such a calm and soothing manner and warm personality that is easy believe she was destined to be a holistic therapist.

Tracy’s business is Top to Toe Treatments and she can be found on Facebook.
