One night, many years ago, in the misty hills of Bantry, Janet awoke from a dream predicting a return to her homeland, where she would set up a Health Food shop to nurture the good people of Waterloo; by mid-2003, she had up and moved, found premises on St John's Road and was ready to roll. One problem though - a new shop, four school-age children and no staff....(or is that two problems....)
Then, as if by magic, along came Russ and Steph and the rest is history!
When the shop opened, we were told that we had little chance of survival ("A health food shop in Waterloo???") but here we are, 10 years later and still going from strength to strength, thanks to the support of our wonderful local community.
Over this time, we have become an award-winning centre of healthy living and healing. Our staff team has become well known for expertise and helpful advice.
The shop is highly acclaimed for wide range of quality health supplements, organic, vegan, vegetarian, raw and fair-trade products, natural bodycare and other aids to a healthy and planet friendly lifestyle.
Wherever possible, we deal with local, independent suppliers and even our biggest Wholesale supplier, Suma, is a Workers' Cooperative.
We also offer a range of complementary therapies, in our therapy room, which is available for hire to other therapists at a reasonable charge.We offer a range of therapies in our small but perfectly-formed therapy room.
We are home to the "Mind, Body & Spirit Library", a comprehensive collection of books numbering more than 1,500 on all matters spiritual and health related. Books can be borrowed from only 50p per month. All money raised goes to charity.
