Why The Apple tree?
It is said that an Apple a day keeps the Doctor away and there is a lot of truth to this old wives tale when you look in to the health benefits of the humble apple. However for us the name has further significance. Avalon, the ancient name for Glastonbury actually means ‘the Isle of Apples’, as the fruit was, and still is, grown here in abundance. Throughout history, especially by the Celts and the Druids, the apple has been seen as a fruit of health, creativity and transformation and it is these qualities that we seek to imbue in our therapy centre, here in the heart of apple country.
A Little History of How We Began!
Matt & Tamsin Fellows - Founders of Apple Tree Therapies
Matt was studying for his acupuncture exams and drinking a lot of coffee at the cafe Tamsin worked in. All those years ago they came up with an idea for a cafe with a treatment room on the side. A trip around the world and two children later this dream became a reality and 'The House of Tea & Chi' was born. The tea shop soon became a Glastonbury favorite, with many people coming to sample the healthy teas and enjoy the 'Chi' (energy) of Matt's acupuncture room. After a few years the constant stream of people meant that Matt was getting a lot busier with his acupuncture. However, unfortunately so was Tamsin, who was continually cooking and baking the food for the cafe. At the end of 2017 the tea shop was closed down so that Tamsin could spend more time with her children. The 'Chi' part of the business took over and three more treatment rooms were built where the cafe once was.
And so 'Apple Tree Therapies' was born. A purpose built centre, where a natural approach to healthcare is the main principle. Since then they have been joined by many dedicated therapists who continue to help this endeavor grow and flourish. The only downside is that Matt doesnt get to eat cake at work anymore...though that is probably good for his waist line!
