[WEBSITE] Winchester Holistics

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.

winchester-holistics1-300x225After 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.

Winchester Holistics

Winchester Holistics is a holistic myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, hotstone massage, stretching and reflexology service based in Winchester, Hampshire (UK), providing complementary therapies. The site was created under the banner of my business MyDesigna, we initially created a site for Reflexive Feet in early 2007, but decided that New Year 2009 was time for a fresh look. I discussed the needs of the site with Tina Hitchens, holistic therapy practitioner and owner of Winchester Holistics (which we decided to rebrand as Tina has developed a wider range of therapeutic skills than reflexology and hot stone massage, which was the initial business). I then redesigned the site, purchased the images from StockXPERT, researched and wrote up new content. There’s still a bit more to do, but this site is already SO much better than the previous one, we can polish it off as time goes on… and to be honest, is a website ever completely finished?!
