Natural Therapies Joins Growing Wellness Hub In Fortune Street Narrogin

Published on Wednesday, 25 November 2020 at 1:55:08 PM

Nestled in Church Square on Fortune Street, Narrogin, among other therapists of differing disciplines, is Maria Knott’s “Narrogin Natural Therapies”. 

Maria had no idea how quickly her business would expand to meet the demand she has experienced since taking on one of the premises in the Square, forcing her take on more floor space, employ a full time receptionist come trainee therapist and calling on other specialists to meet demand. Qualified remedial masseuse Maria said “They are coming from everywhere.  My business just seems to be expanding through word of mouth. I have sports people who come in and go home and tell their family, and farmers from all over the region who need relief from their heavy work and go back and tell their mates and they seem to just keep coming. When I started, I thought I was just going to have a few clients to keep just me alone busy”.

When you walk into Maria’s premises, you are instantly engaged by the heady aromas of essential oils that are used in her therapies, which include a variety of massage types including aromatherapy, Swedish, pregnancy and remedial. In an adjoining room, pilates therapy machines have been installed, where she assists in rehabilitation, ideal for both recovering patients and strengthening for seniors.

“I have also started a salt room. Salt room therapy is ideal for people with skin and lung conditions – my own boy has asthma and salt therapy provides him with much relief” said Maria. “I have big ideas on where else this business can go, but I’m trying to stick to my core business plan in the first instance.”

The Shire President, Leigh Ballard, and the Narrogin Chamber of Commerce Chairperson, Bill O’Neill, visited Narrogin Natural Therapies to wish Maria every success in her new and growing business and acknowledged her confidence in Narrogin’s and wider district’s community. Maria was presented with a Chamber welcome pack and the Shire presented local produce, all wrapped up in the Shire of Narrogin ‘Love the Life’ calico shopping bag.

Shire President Leigh Ballard said “Narrogin is certainly growing in the business sector offering new services to Narrogin and the greater district who are enthusiastically getting behind the new businesses in town. It’s really important to continue to look local and buy local first to continue to attract new and expand existing businesses and to make our CBD vibrant, interesting and welcoming”.
