Return trip to Cowal

One of the benefits of being a self employed therapist is that you get to choose where and when you are available to work.

The back bone of my practice is based at Woodland Herbs, a clinic and shop in the west end of Glasgow. I also see clients at Life Medicine, a practice set up by a few colleagues and myself in the south side of Glasgow.  One day a month I attend a local university to provide on-site shiatsu for staff. The rest of the time I spend attending home visits in and around Glasgow for clients who cannot make it to one of the clinics for health reasons.  I like the balance of venues as it provides a bit of variety to how I spend my time as well as enabling me to reach more people.

Now usually I keep my home visits limited to Glasgow.  However, a friend and colleague with whom I swap treatments with was looking for some shiatsu in support of her recovery from recent surgery. So for the time being one afternoon a week my time is taken on a return trip by ferry across the Clyde estuary to the Cowal peninsula.
