Our Story - The Restore Juice Co.
The Restore Juice Co. was founded in 2011 by two best friends, Joanne Willcox and Kendal Williams, who believe passionately in the huge benefits of juice cleansing.
Joanne, who has 30 years experience running a nutrition and colonic hydrotherapy business, pioneered the juice formulations whist running her Ultra Detox retreats in Chester with astonishing results.
Kendal, who has over 10 years' experience in the Health and Beauty Industry. Bringing then latest in nutrition, exercise and beauty treatments to her clients working with a number of 'blue-chip' brands.
And so The Restore Juice Company was born.
This passion was ignited following Joanne's own experiences after being hospitalised in Bombay, India with Malaria in 1989. Aged 23, Joanne was working as a cabin crew member for a Saudi Arabian airline and living in Bahrain. She remembers working a flight to Bombay and then waking on a men's ward in awful conditions. Far away from home, young, scared, very ill and without her parents by her side she had to trust the doctor caring for her when he said that she would make it through. During her slow recovery, Joanne was discharged to a nurse's home in Kerala. Here, she was introduced to a whole new healing process - she juiced, mediated, practised yoga and had her first colonic hydrotherapy treatment.
Joanne has trained in Nutrition, Dietetics, Anatomy and Physiology and is a fully qualified NLP practitioner and Mindfulness coach. She runs three successful colonic hydrotherapy clinics across Liverpool, Wirral and Chester. Joanne has certainly been a pioneer in her field. She has helped to heal and change the lives of thousands of people over the years (including many familiar faces) through colonic hydrotherapy, juice cleansing, nutritional and lifestyle advice. She has appeared on TV and has a bundle of publications to her name.
She says, 'Life should be lived incorporating calmness, well-being and joy every day. I hope after colonic, juicing, retreating at Restore or 3 days of Ultra Detox, you experience pleasure, well-being and you are enveloped in incredible healing for the rest of your life.'
During the 3 days of the Ultra Detox Juice Retreats, Joanne has treated and helped many clients. When asked what type of people? What are their needs? Why do they come? Joanne smiles and says ‘Where do I begin? I break it down into simple bullet points’:
- Removal of toxins
- Over weight
- Over-use of alcohol
- Drug miss-use
- Depression / Anxiety
- Pre-natal / Anti-natal
- Skin complaints
- Recovery from cancer
- Fluid retention
- Toxic environments
- Emotional well-being
- Hormone imbalance
- Thyroid problems
- No energy
- To feel revitalised
- To be rejuvenated
‘As colonic hydrotherapists, it’s our job to give clients vitality and restore digestive health. This is why we have started The Restore Juice Company Ltd. Over the years, clients’ demand for juices has increased tenfold. We are very often found juicing well into the early hours for clients who wish to continue with juicing after the Retreat has ended. Many clients ask for 3 day and 5 day juice programmes before important occasions to shed pounds. The public finally realises the time is now. They understand the importance of fruit and vegetables to promote digestive well-being and ultimately health. We have come to understand that in today’s over-hectic lifestyle to have a supply of fresh goodness delivered to your door with a click of a button is essential. So here we are.’
Our partnership, how it began in Joanne’s words;
Where there is a Yin there is a Yang. Kendal is my Yang, my calm, structured other half. A wealth of knowledge in the health industry managing some of the most exclusive health and country clubs in the world.
Her hard working work ethic and determination has seen her progress up the corporate ladder, changing the destiny of many world renowned spas. I have watched her source incredible products to provide only the best for club members, to make them feel the most valued clients and the most pampered and has given all spa visitors the experience of well-being and calmness. Her days are spent running spas and bringing new up to date luxury body treatments inspired by the sea and nature. An organised, structure and very creative, artistic lady, but above all else kind.
Over the years we have shared a love of juicing, colour, creating, healing, promoting well-being. We talk endlessly about juice, products and treatments and the fabulous results our clients have experienced.
We have a shared passion. I admired enormously all she had achieved in her career, a structured, organised, results driven approach. I think from afar she has admired my longevity in the business as a sole trader doing it all. So we joined forces and the adventure began.
We bring you, The Restore Juice Company. Together, plotting your next cleanse and journey of well-being.
