Welcome to the latest issue and Happy New Year! It’s my first issue as the new editor and I’ve been absolutely loving working with the fabulous HTM team to bring you the first issue of 2014.
Since I’ve taken the reins from the former ed Jordan (who’s now to be found running the HTM website), I’ve got to know our great regular contributors, discovered some more talented and experienced writers, heard some inspiring stories from readers, tried out some gorgeous new products for healthy holistic living and working, and had an incredible treatment. All of this and more is squeezed into this issue of Holistic Therapist Magazine.
This New Year issue is all about new beginnings, refreshing your business and your life, embracing change and making 2014 your best year yet. As always, our remarkable team of regular contributors share their words of business wisdom. Rachel Fairweather writes about starting out and staying in business (page 24); life coach Mark Shields shares how to use the principles of teamwork for greater success (page 30); Jonathan Pollinger show you how to refresh your online profiles (page 14) while we also learn how to successfully launch a website in the new year (page 15); David Balens demonstrates how students and newly qualified therapists can safely develop their skills (page 26); Sandy Newbigging shares his teachings on making powerful and positive life changes (page 37); and Dr Stephen Hopwood brings you news of the “anti-cancer effect” for men of wholefood supplements (page 13).
We also celebrate Chinese New Year with features on using its symbolism to promote your business (page 16), as well as sharing tips on staying healthy this winter by using acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (page 54), Karen Watkins’ reveals her ABC of top detoxing foods (page 52), and Charlotte Palmer offers you a winter warming Eastern recipe to make to warm your cockles on chilly nights (age 53). We honour St Valentine’s Day with some beautiful alternative loving gifts (page 45); celebrate Mother’s Day with pampering products (page 42), our new mum’s diary (page 39) and Rosanna’s advice for safely getting back into exercise after birth (page 40), and show you how to make New Year’s Resolution’s work for you (64). The magazine is also packed with inspiring real-life case studies and an interview with a very well known actress, model and mum (page 66).
