Lindsey Sarah Wilson, originally from Doncaster, set up and ran her own natural health store selling health foods, vitamins, supplements and natural skin care products. Before selling the business Lindsey would deal with customers who complained of various health problems. She knew that certain massage techniques were known to help some of the issues that her customers were facing and realised that she could potentially give massages alongside offering nutritional advice. After selling the business in 2011 Lindsay moved to the north east and decided to pursue this idea by looking for massage courses in the area.
After an initial search Lindsey found that Newcastle College was the only provider that offered her the flexibility to study during the day for one day a week. This meant that she could study whilst her son was at school which would fit perfectly around her family commitments.
