Rosewood Health And Wellbeing was founded in 1994 by Marcella who saw an opportunity to bring Reflexology and Complementary Therapies to her hometown in Omagh. At this stage Marcella was already a gifted healer, so she was following on her journey as a healer. When she was half way through her first course in Reflexology her husband Brian renovated the garage to a waiting room, treatment room, small kitchen and bathroom. During Marcella’s training she built up her clients by doing over 800 pairs of feet free of charge!
After 6 months into practice, Marcella saw that a lot of her clients had foot problems. At that time Brian and Marcella had a grocery shop which was long hours of work so there wasn’t much time for courses. However, Brian decided to train as a chiropodist in Liverpool which caused a lot of upheaval in the family as there were also 3 small children to attend to.
After 3 years, Brian had finished his course at Liverpool and started his new journey in life as a qualified Chiropodist/Podiatrist. The business grew from strength to strength and in 2001 Marcella got pregnant with their 4th child which was a bit of a shock. They then decided to move to a bigger house (which didn’t happen). They tried to buy 90 Tamlaght Road (where they are now) however, that didn’t work out and a charity called inspire bought it and WAIT FOR IT… Not only did they call it Rosewood but they also used our colours which at that time – red and yellow.
Marcella and Brian were so devastated. However life went on and they both continued their practice from home. Whenever the last child was 14 they decided to move on and look for a premises.
