Therapy can turn into family affair
Because Bowen therapy is relatively unheard-of a lot of people aren’t aware of it, don’t know what to expect and have tried various other therapies that haven’t helped with their condition or problem in the past. Often they may approach it with a degree of scepticism. However, the results speak for themselves and my business has grown from recommendations and word of mouth from clients. Often I begin by treating a baby for colic then treat the dad for a frozen shoulder, then the auntie for sciatica and it really becomes a family affair.
Have faith in yourself and your product. Be prepared to be fully committed, put in long hours and work hard and how important it is to have a good website and Facebook page. and worked and alongside my partner, raised a family here and made so many new friends and connections since I moved to Rutherglen and then Cambuslang almost 12 years ago. And now I am blessed to have started a business in a place that I love and have the support of local people.
That if you work hard you can achieve your goals and to have faith in yourself and what you do.
My ambition is to have a thriving, successful business with happy and pain-free clients. I hope that my business grows from strength to strength and in five years that Bowen therapy achieves the recognition it deserves.

Numbers gameChartered accountant Gwen Blair me for assistance because I am close to where they live or work.“I love working with people and helping them to achieve their business goals, whilst ensuring that all the necessary compliance work is dealt with along the way.“I spend about half my week in the office and the other half out and about meeting and speaking to clients.”Gwen insists on keeping up to date with her professional development in the ever-changing accounting and tax systems environment.“Being your own boss brings with it a lot of flexibility but if you do not put in the effort and hard work, you’ll have nothing to show for it,”she insisted.For anyone starting out in business Gwen’s top tips are: be organised, plan your workflow and stick to it; join lots of networking groups; and work hard but ensure you have a good work-life balance and proper downtime to avoid burning out.“I thoroughly enjoy working for myself,”said Gwen, who has lived in Rutherglen for 12 years.“I have always had a passion for numbers and problem solving. My degree is in maths and physics so if I wasn’t an accountant I would still want to be involved in some area of maths and science.”www.lamontblairca.co.uk
