If you sign up for our newsletters, or read the stories on this site, you might be asking who Ali is.
So here is a face behind the name.
I live on the Gold Coast, with two beautiful sons.
Ripple was a glimmer in my eye for a couple of years before I started it up here in 2005. Just me, one therapist on a mountain.
Because I have been extraordinarily lucky and met some amazing people along the way, it has grown pretty quickly.
But the reasons for me starting it, to have a balance between my work and life and to satisfy my need to make other people happy, are still the same.
Oh and a few people have asked if we are a franchise or run by a big multi national company?
Nope, Ripple is wholly owned by me but is run by a group of amazing women and men who love what we do.
I'm mostly the chick who does the email newsletters and gets to decide where we open next. The super women and men in Ripple (our therapists, booking ladies and regional reps) are the ones who make it all run smoothly.

Not so fond of those slick corporate pics
This was taken when we first started and we
did the markets on Mt Tamborine. Note the dark circles
from waking up far too early on a Sunday morning.
A customer is the most important visitor on our premises.
They are not dependent on us. We are dependent on them.
They are not an interruption of our work. They are the
purpose of it.
They are not an outsider to our business. They are a part of it.
We are not doing them a favour by serving them.
They are doing us a favour by giving us the opportunity to do so.
