A THERAPIST from Mansfield Woodhouse has come up with a business she says helped turn her life around while providing a relaxing service for the elderly and vulnerable.
Cathy Mumford runs Truly Relaxing, which offers a mobile aromatherapy and hand and foot massage service operating in the Mansfield Woodhouse area.
Cathy was made redundant in June this year and she faced the usual worries over bills and finding a new career.
But she explained the shock of losing her office-based job spurred her on to create a new living for herself.
“Massage was something I had done, as a hobby really, for friends and family,” she said. “Providing the service has always been at the back of my mind but because I had the job, I never had the time to pursue it.
“I found it difficult to suddenly be leaving my old job but now I feel like overall, things have turned out for the best.”
