My Name is Claire and I set up The Healing Hut because of my love for Holistic and Beauty therapy. I am a strong believer in the benefits of holistic therapy, positive thinking and making time for yourself. All the products I sell I am very passionate about, they are pure, organic, vegan and cruelty free. I believe skin care should be 100% natural and never tested on animals, animals are our friends and such beautiful energy on earth.
I am a Life coach and teacher in Meditation and yoga, I am qualified in Reiki, Crystal Therapy, Angelic, Shamanic and energy healing, Indian Head Massage, Thai Foot Massage, Hopi Ear Candling and Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Kundalini yoga. Ive also trained in beauty therapy and as a professional make up artist, Yumi lash lift and tint, Sienna x tanning and crystal facial enhancement.
13 years ago I was driving home one day when I suffered a seizure whilst at the wheel of my car, I was driving in the fast lane on the M3 motorway and a seizure came on from nowhere. I hadn't been unwell before so it was a shock, I had just had a baby girl and other than being tired and also feeling anxious and worried about my mum at the time who was incredibly ill with cancer I had no warning. At that moment my whole life changed immeasurably. Things could have been much, much worse were it not for the quick thinking of my husband, who controlled the car to the relative safety of the hard shoulder and subsequently, the skills of the emergency services, who between them saved my life.
The medical professionals think the hormones and tiredness from having a baby and stress and upset related to Mum's terrible illness brought the seizure on. It was obviously an extremely tough time, as I had never had a seizure before. Not only was it scary, it was devastating to lose one's memory and confidence. As a consequence of which, I also lost my independence, due to the anxiety of being alone. To top it all, my driving licence was revoked as I continued suffering seizures, until 8 years ago.
Since that terrible day its been a challenging journey for me over the years, having to cope with memory loss, lack of confidence and anxiety and having reoccurring seizures over the years. But I am now finally happy to say I have been seizure-free for 8 years and its been controlled on medication. Wow what a journey finding strength I never knew I had.
Epilepsy is such a grey area, so I am so grateful to be here and able to help others through my own experience. I have grown in confidence, which I believe is due to my holistic work and have set up my beautiful Healing Hut business, where I am working hard to inspire others and also help donate to several charities including, PETA, WWF, Mind, Shelter, Epilepsy Research UK, Cancer research and many more. I hope that together we can make this world a easier place to live.
My inspiration for creating The Healing Hut was borne out of my challenging journey with epilepsy and the emotional trauma of losing my beautiful Mum, whose fortitude during her long battle with cancer continues to inspire me to this day. My mum passed away at the age of 52 after battling cancer for 7 years. All my work is dedicated to the memory of my treasured Mum and always will be. I believe in natural products and therapies to help keep us strong.
Thank you for reading my story. I hope it inspires Others to believe that you can do what ever you want to do, I am living my dream now and love my job so much. I am very grateful x
