I met with Emmy King aka Empathy Holistics at Boomerang in Bury. The meeting was arranged to see how we could support one another business. As we got chatting I chose to interview her to understand more about the business and then see how we could collaborate. Here the interview unfolds.
In 2006, yes that’s correct that is how long Empathy Holistics has been going, Emmy set up the business with the help of The Princess Trust. Emmy had always wanted to help people through relaxation and with treatments that were handmade products within a group session.
Emmy had previously worked with Neals Yards remedies in Manchester and had studies at the University of Salford with ‘Complimentary Medicine and Counselling. At a very young age of 24, Emmy suffered with an odd migraine attack and this was her turning point, why was she so stressed? Hence the beginning of relaxation sessions as an aromatherapist using oils was born, aka Empathy Holistics
Why is Empathy Holistics Unique?
It was mentioned that there are many relaxation sessions around these days for babies and toddlers but Emmy assured me that is no franchise, there is no branding rights as this business was built by her for her customers. Emmy personally tailors each session to suit the individuals and will adapt it at any point during, before or after the session for next time. Emmy asks her customers what is it they actually want and this is her unique selling point as the feedback from her customers has informed her she is on the right track. Her customers have told her that with some other relaxation sessions they were made to feel that they were “doing things all wrong with their child” or they were actually reduced to tears.
What is the Future for Empathy Holistics?
As of today Empathy Holistics has been running successfully for over 13 years and classes can currently be found at
– Boomerang in Bury
– Eddy Bears in Farnworth
– Chetham Farm Retreat on a Monday
Emmy wants to continue to provide a need for mums and whilst she won’t initially consider a franchise she realises how much this business has helped her and how it can help so many other mums with confidence, getting out of the house and of course extra income; so may consider offering training.
