Winchester Holistics is a single-person holistic therapy business based in Winchester. The company required a small, friendly, small business website, which would not involve frequent updates. In 2006, we spent time in discussion as to content and structure, and used one of many free WordPress themes.
After discussions and research, I designed and structured a friendly small business website. We wanted to keep the site simple as Tina had no desire to update it, and I couldn’t guarantee being available when the site needed updating.
I studied at other ‘holistic practitioner’ sites so that I could recommend to Tina the kind of content that would be worthwhile, and also took on board the ideas she already had for what it would contain.
On paper I outlined how I thought the site would work, and then we purchased a domain name and web-hosting space from 1&1, I designed the site using Dreamweaver and images purchased from iStockphoto, and the site went live. I recommended to Tina a number of things that she could do to promote the site offline.
Following discussions site with Tina, we renamed the company in 2008 (from Reflexive feet to Winchester Holistics) to reflect the wider range of treatments she offers, and the design of the new site can be seen here. We’re completing a rework of the material, as Tina focuses more on myfascial release than the hotstones.
