AN entrepreneur has turned a natural skill into a strategic business.

Helen Aiken founded massage firm The Little Calm Company after spotting a need to ease stress in the workplace.

Helen said: ‘Giving massages to colleagues really gave them a boost.

‘My husband worked in a stressful job and suffered from debilitating anxiety and we found that massage had an amazingly calming effect on him. Now I visit workplaces and events and offer seated, fully-clothed massage on a massage chair or at the desk.’

Helen’s mission is to combat stress within the office, reduce sickness rates and increase morale.
