People come into our lives for a variety of reasons. Ashi Edwards is one person I’m very glad to have met. Let me explain the circumstances of our meeting.
Ashi Edwards: Helping and Healing
Ashi responded to Think Tasmania following our article about pet-friendly accommodation in Tasmania.
Ashi Edwards and husband Michael are new to Hobart and have just opened a clinic in their home in Sandy Bay called Sandy Bay Natural Therapies. They offer homeopathy, clinical reflexology, pregnancy reflexology and lifestyle advice.
These therapies are offered to both locals and tourists visiting Hobart and the pair work a multitude of hours to suit the needs of their clients. People may also want to learn simple techniques of reflexology; we can offer instruction while they stay in Hobart, either with us or at other accommodation.
On the premises, they are going to open self-contained accommodation called Sandy Bay Chalet. It will be an up-market accommodation offering for the travelling public, but in particular for those travelling with their pets on holiday: gorgeous dogs, bunnies and other small animals (excluding cats).
In addition they will be offering doggie day care for small dogs as their human parents go on day trips to see tourist attractions such as national parks. Michael and Ashi will provide great doggie day care with walks to the lovely beaches in Sandy Bay; supply home-made, hormone-free doggie treats and basically just spoil the dogs. They have two very spoiled doggy children of their own: Rockey and Lola.
Ashi then invited Think Tasmania to visit and experience a reflexology treatment while learning more about the business.
Meeting Ashi Edwards
I have since been to meet Ashi Edwards, and she is a dynamo! There’s so much to tell you all, I don’t know where to start. Let me break it down into parts…
Sandy Bay Chalet (the up-market, pet-friendly accommodation) is already looking superb. Due for completion in a few months, the final touches will include fabric sourced in India and a garden designed by Tino Carnivale.
Sandy Bay Natural Therapies will no doubt be a huge success. Ashi Edwards is clearly very accomplished and passionate about her work. From my own personal experience, it’s obvious she has extraordinary intuition when it comes to matters of health and well-being.
Hobart is so fortunate this couple arrived in Tasmania and plan to stay. After working for 10 years in London’s world-renowned Harley Street, and with 17 years experience in the natural health industry, Michael and Ashi moved to Australia. They spent several years searching other states for the climate and lifestyle they yearned. There’s no surprise to learn they’ve followed their dream to destination Tasmania.
Any pets in Doggie Day Care with Ashi Edwards will be spoiled rotten! After my reflexology treatment, I came home with some freshly-baked liver treats for my fur-baby… and wow! The pooch certainly did sit up and take notice!
There’s lots of information still to share about all these business ventures, but I must say that meeting Ashi Edwards is an experience itself. Despite an unreasonable share of personal challenges in her own life, she is still full of positive energy and community spirit. Although relative newcomers, Michael and Ashi already volunteer at the Hobart Dogs Home and support a community garden enterprise in Chigwell. They plan to live a self-sustainable lifestyle as they revamp their new property. They’re going to great lengths to ensure good health and well being for all who visit; a feng shui consultant has already assessed both the clinic and the chalet.
If a series of treatments at Sandy Bay Natural Therapies can generate half the motivation and enthusiasm for life that Ashi Edwards displays… look out world. I will soon be turbo-charged.
