Hi, I'm Lauren
I'm the hands behind hands on - quite literally, all the hands!
Massage Therapist, Office Administrator,
Stock Purchaser and Customer Service Officer, I get it all done with a big ol' smile and Hank, my boston terrier, by my side.
First and foremost, I’m a wife and Mum. My husband is a farmer with a property just south of Bencubbin in the Wheatbelt of WA; I’m a ‘wanna-be’ farmer and help out whenever I get the chance. I’m a semi-retired Mum as even though my children are grown and have left home, they’ll always be my babies ♥
It took me many years, and LOADS of different jobs to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. It was after 8 years of working in local government that I came to realise I wasn’t feeling fulfilled. In 2014 I bit the bullet and became a student again, studying massage with the intention of fitting my clients around my farming commitments. Since then my client base has grown along with my experience (at one stage when working in Merredin I found myself booked 6-8 weeks in advance!!). Nowadays, I find it tricky to fit in farming!
Its now safe to say that this is exactly what I want to be when I grow up! I love the work I do, I love the relationships I build, but most of all I love that I’m able to make a positive difference in my clients’ lives which gives me a huge feeling of fulfillment and a great deal of satisfaction.
Aside from needing the practical skills and theoretical knowledge to succeed at what I do, I sense it’s my ability to connect meaningfully with my clients that is my real gift. It’s something I really look forward to.
During the COVID 19 lockdown period during the second quarter of 2020 which put me out of work for some time, I decided that I needed to figure out a way to connect with my clients and find a way to continue doing what I love but be less reliant on only my skills in the therapy room. It was during that time I decided to expand my small giftware range to a much larger selection. So here I am with a website where you can browse the therapies that I offer, make bookings etc but also view my expanding range of beautiful, tasteful, quality retail products and gifts that you don’t even need to change out of your ‘jarmies’ or leave the house to purchase.
