As you know, we are huge supporters of Inspirational Women in Business. Through the articles we write, we have been extremely fortunate to meet some exceptional women, and to have women reach out to us to talk about their own journeys.
One such lady is Ellen Coleman-Wallace.
About five minutes outside the beautiful town of Cashel, Ellen’s business is tucked away to the side of her house in a little cabin, beautifully decked out with wooden floors, soft furnishings and lighting, with aromas that lift your senses.
This is Healing Hands Holistics, a business that finally came into being three years ago while Ellen was on maternity leave with her second son Donnacha.
Ellen is a beautifully soft-spoken lady, who has such an aura of serenity about her. She is incredibly self-deprecating, crediting her husband Kevin as being her rock, with his unwavering support and positivity, and great business acumen.
Behind every great woman, is a great man!
Ellen started out working in the beauty industry over 10 years ago. She gained a lot of training and experience working with Aisling Health & Beauty in Thurles, where they also paid for Ellen to begin her Reiki training.
As much as she enjoyed her work, Ellen felt she wanted to take it to another level – for her clients to not just feel good on the outside, but on the inside as well, physically and mentally.
After gaining her Reiki qualification in 2006 and Reflexology in 2009, Ellen started to develop the idea of combining beauty and holistic treatments, to provide a complete therapy to her clients.
She spent a long time sourcing the perfect products to compliment her treatments, to blend with the ethos of Healing Hands. Finally, in 2017, Ellen found Holos, a 100% organic, Irish range created and produced in Wexford by Niamh Hogan.
This range is truly devine – it is little wonder they are picking up awards left, right and centre! The anti-ageing oil is a client favourite, along with the Love Your Skin gift set. These combined with Ellen’s magical hands give clients a truly heavenly experience.
And a lot of thought has gone into developing Ellen’s treatments.
The 2 hour Walk In, Float Out which combines a full-body Swedish massage, the Holos radiance facial and a scalp massage.
The Complete Sinus Clear, another 2 hour treatment involving ear candling, Indian head massage and reflexology.
Ellen loves to connect with her clients, to release blockages or focus on areas of concern, sometimes without them even realising! As Ellen says herself, this has been a huge year for women across the board.
It is so important to find that life balance, to not become overwhelmed by pressures, and to find a natural way to cope with that.
In the meantime, there are big things on the way for Healing Hands Holistics!
