Overall Being

The next round of features on my blog are going to be not only business's that I LOVE but they are run by people that are awsome as well, to start this round off I want to introduce you to Lisa Kavenagh, a fabulous lady with awesome products and owner of OVERALL BEING..this is Lisa's story..

Overall Being has alot to offer the shopper from home. It is an online business which offers Personalised and Unique Gifts.

Overall Being was very different back when it started in 2003. It was started as a business offering a range of alternative & conventional Massage treatments to clients in their own home. Being a mother I needed flexibility and the ease of promoting my business without too much time away from my family. Having this online allows me to work from home around such.

I have a thirst for natural therapies and alternative ways. Hence why I have so many various
techniques that I can fall back on. I feel giving alittle of you to help others brings joy and hope for humanity as a whole. It creates fabulous good energy which is what Overall Being is.

My Logo is mainly of a Lotus Flower. I think its quite fitting for this business and the owners belief hence why it was chosen. The Lotus Flower is one of the most ancient and deepest symbols of our planet. It grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolises the purity of heart and mind. Which is how I came up with the name. It represents long life, health, honor and good luck. All of what I live by and what I try to bring into Overall Being to every customer that graces the front door. I treat each client as if it is my first and last.

I have studied quite a number of various techniques which allows me to offer many ways of treating oneself to my clients, family/friends. Being a mother now of four boys( Alexander 1996, Nicholas 1998, Samuel 2002, Jack 2008), I required a fair amount of flexibility and am terrific at multitasking. No job or order is too big, I love a challenge when someone comes and says do you or can you do this?!

Overall Being has been offering since 2003 various techniques of Reiki, Kundalini, Aromatherapy, Massage Parties, Crystal Therapy, Massage techniques and online Reiki Courses. Along with crystal jewellery.

When I became pregnant with our fourth son, I decided to take some “Hands on” time off. Putting my massage on hold for a moment, so I could enjoy being a new mum. Life certainly is busy, but so rewarding at the same time. I suffered unfortunately bad PND after having Jack which lead me to delve back into meditation and therapy to help heal my soul whilst using conventional methods as well.

Since having this time off it made me think about other ways of bringing joy into my life. Which is how Overall Being has grown to where it is today , offering various other products which some I outsource to other work at home businesses or have become a proud stockist for or some I hand make myself.

To have one place to visit on the web makes it extremely easy for people to help give memorable gifts to those they love. I now offer personalised and customised gifts for anyone seeking something of difference.

The fabric I use to make my quillows, blankets or cushions is imported and has been described as having hugs all around you when snuggled into one. Available in this are: quillows, cushions, pet beds and blankets of all sizes using the same fabric.

I love natural products. Products that I know what is in it. Putting things onto my skin with chemicals just diminishes the beauty eventually. I offer a range of Aromatherapy products aswell such as Blends, Colognes, Perfumes, Soaps, & Candles. I am also a proud stockist of Fresh Faced Skincare & Mineral Makeup. Which is a 100% Australian owned and made Natural product. But also Gaia.....the name speaks for itself .

Along with the above....there is also a range of jewellery which is all handmade. Using handmade
Kaolin beads, crystals and such which has been sourced from overseas. With the Crystal Bracelets I can also add Reiki Healing into each piece as an added special touch for the giver.

Digital Scrapbooking is also available at Overall Being, whereby I use the clients photos to create a everlasting leather bound album, filled with memories. These albums are perfect for the coffee table or as a gift to someone. There is many different sizes available and also have created a Digital Scrapbook page and had it printed onto a Canvas to hang on the wall. They are quite stunning and highly unique. Even creating Invitations, Place cards, Thank you cards, etc...I also now have Photo Gifts / Canvases / Albums available.

There is a Gift Ideas page on Overall Being which highlights suggestions for the shopper. To allow them to see what is available on a website as a quick guide makes the whole shopping experience and visit to us more memorable and unique.

That is where is versatility comes into it and allows me to offer clients to “create” their very own gift basket. Each Basket can be tailored to the individual and anything can be added to it.

Overall Being has been running like this for the past 12mths and will continue to do so. I think having somewhere like this on the web adds love.

There is also a gorgeous way of celebrating time together as people. Overall Being offers a Massage Boutique experience in the comfort of your own home. Offering many complimentary services to the host and discounts for the attendees. Perfect for hens nights/afternoons, Girl get togethers, baby showers and such.

So as you can see Overall Being is exactly what the name says, incorporating Lifes pleasures into one spot.

"Life is not about the moments we breathe, but the moments that take our breath away"
