about us

Glow Health & Wellbeing was created by a group of holistic therapists on a mission to spread the word about the phenomenal benefits of natural healthcare. We have come together to share knowledge and information and to increase awareness of the many ways in which a natural approach to health and wellbeing can be implemented easily into our day-to-day lives. 

Melanie Higginbotham

Kinesiology & Energy Therapies

I am a Kinesiology Practitioner and am passionate about natural health and wellbeing, having experienced first hand the benefits of the incredible way in which it is possible to tap into the body's inner wisdom to bring about healing, balance and clarity through the use of Kinesiology.


It became clear to me that the potential for true health and healing is unlimited thanks to Kinesiology's ability to "talk" to the body and subconscious mind because they already hold all the answers we need. 


Most recently I qualified in the truly brilliant Integrated Healing Kinesiology system with Mathilda van Dyk, one of its creators. I am the first (and only) Integrated Healing Practitioner in Scotland and I am immensely honoured to be able to introduce this phenomenal work to this part of the world. 


Integrated Healing has allowed me to take my practice to a whole new level, and I am constantly amazed at the results clients achieve from working with this approach.   




Laurie Paterson

Reiki Master/Teacher & Holistic Therapist

My journey into the world of holistic therapies began over 15 years ago. I have always been drawn to the vibration of others and also healing modalities that can blend and meld with ours, to create balance and harmony for each of us that feel drawn to work and heal in this way.


I am a therapist who supports private clients, no matter what challenge or health condition they may have.


The first form of healing that I studied with Roisin Munn, and then practiced, was Reiki, which has developed and changed as years have gone by. I practice traditional Usui Reiki, Usui Holy Fire II Reiki, Usui Holy Fire II Karuna Reiki and Reiki Drumming.


Other modalities that I have studied over the years are Reflexology, Maternity Reflexology, Tibetan Reflexology, Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Thai Foot Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Hopi Ear Candling and Stress Management/Clinical Hypnosis. I have also trained as a Certificated Infant Massage Instructor, an Angel Healer and Crystal Healer.


Mary McPhillips

Reflexologist & Owner, Therapia

I come from a science background, with a degree in Biochemistry, and worked in various Glasgow hospitals for 15 years. My interest in yoga and Eastern philosophies led me to Reflexology which has been my passion for almost 30 years.


I am now teaching independently and offer a Diploma course in Reflexology for those wishing to practise.


Always believing in following my intuition inspired me to work with children and hold workshops  to 'plant seeds' in order for them to develop and explore the therapies to enhance their own inner life in a fun and natural way.


I own Therapia Holistics; a complementary practice based in Gourock. We offer a range of services including: Reflexology, Reflexology Certification, Children's Reflexology & Workshops, Happy Feet Club (ages 7 - 10 yrs.), Sports & Soft Tissue Massage, Shiatsu, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Counselling and Reiki. 



Tracey Gallacher

Owner, Acorn Foot Practice

I am Tracey Gallacher and started my journey caring for people back in 1991 when I first qualified as Foot Health Professional, this path felt right for me as I love having direct contact with people and helping them to feel better. I set up Acorn Foot Practice in 2011 in West Blackhall Street, Greenock.


My journey did not stop with treating just feet, however. I discovered an interest in holistic therapies and qualified in Reflexology in 1992 which stirred my enthusiasm to delve further into the world of holistic therapies and their benefits for my clients.


I went on to study and qualify in the Bowen Technique and then, most recently, the Emmett Technique. One of the benefits of this therapy is that it can be blended into many other existing therapies but also used as a stand alone therapy.  I am always blown away by the quick results and levels of change this light touch technique brings.
