Why do I do what I do?
I started Celgenics by accident – if anyone had told me 5 years ago what I would be doing now, I would have thought them mad! I’ve been a therapist for close on 20 years treating people with chronic health problems using a variety of different skills that I’ve built up over the years. I love helping people back to health and I love the different ways people choose to get better; this means that one person will prefer working with homeopathic remedies, another will want nutritional remedies, another will work with flower essences or aura soma oils and another will want a hands-on treatment such as the visionary Cranio Sacral work I do or Bowen Technique.
The story goes like this – one evening I had a client who lay on my treatment table and told me she was going shopping for a moisturiser on Saturday – she hated shopping for skincare as she was allergic to everything that contained parabens or petrochemicals. Being a Kinesiologist I was able to muscle test her for all the ingredients she couldn’t tolerate. I then went away, did my research into what type of cream would be best for her and finally made it. To my great delight, she loved it! She then asked me to make creams as Christmas presents for her sisters in Ireland, happily they too loved the creams.
If the homeopathic remedies and flower essences etc that I used in my practice worked by taking them orally, then they would work equally well if they were absorbed into the skin! After all, that’s how hormone patches work.
I experimented. My friends tried them and the feedback was very good.
My next light bulb moment – I saw that the energy I gave clients in my practice of love, peace and healing was something that could be infused into the water that goes into the creams.
If this stretches your imagination too far, it’s worth remembering that Creme de la Mer were the first company to work with energy – they infused their ingredients with sound and light frequencies and they still do so today. Creme de la Mer was founded by Max Huber, a NASA scientist. So it turned out I was unconsciously standing on the shoulders of a very respectable scientist.
My vision then, which remains today, is that I could send my creams out into the world carrying the message of love, peace and healing. That has always been my driving force and is the reason I continue to do what I do.
