Julie Nicholls knows all about the stresses and strains of running a business.

Her business is to help others overcome these problems. Called Natural Therapy, the potential of her firm has already been recognised by Livewire, the business organisation for young people sponsored by Shell.

Livewire has presented Julie, 25, with an award for the best new business in North Wiltshire.

Julie, a registered general nurse launched the business last autumn under the wing of Great Western enterprise- the Swindon-based small business help organisation.

She saw a gap in the market for remedial massage and realised many people needed help overcoming the pressures of modern business life, from stress to repetitive strain injury.

So far she has worked mainly on an individual basis but hopes soon to sign up with local firms to help employees. She is also going to work soon from the chiropractic clinic in Swindon Road, Stratton St. Margaret soon.

Belgian-born Julie had to submit her business plan to the Livewire judges before being entered for the award.

Remedial Massage, she says, has long been ignored as a way of relieving stress and helping conditions such as arthritis and back pain- as well as relaxing stressed-out business people.
