Reason for Sale: This is NOT a fire sale! People constantly comment how I've got a "great little business" and "you are so lucky". Whilst the fulfilment is still there from helping people live better lives it is time to further my training and follow my passion as a Bowen Therapist including studying to become a teacher in the technique. Over the past 3-5 years as the business has grown further I have found myself spending too much time in the manager role rather than the bowen therapist role.
About the Business: First and foremost Island Healing was created to help people fix their aches and pains and maintain health and wellbeing. We believe that keeping yourself well is far smarter than recovering from being sick. Island Healing is a great investment because it is an established business (12 years). It has had one owner who started it from a blank canvas so all the blood, sweat and tears of the early years has been done for you. A new owner simply needs to keep doing what has been done and similar results can be had. In saying that further growth is certainly attainable and as mentioned previously it currently operates at 60-70% capacity and is profitable at that rate. Improve on that operating percentage and further profit would be garnered.
History: I did the Kokoda track in 2003 and required treatment afterwards on my shoulder blade. Stumbling upon Bowen Therapy and due to the amazing results I just knew I had to learn this technique. So I started this business from a blank canvas in September, 2005 with a vision of multi-disciplinary clinic. Spending 6 months and $100,000 on the internal fit-out. Early days it was a challenging, yet fulfilling business. While local clientele is the businesses bread and butter, the tourism side has grown significantly over the years.
