Meet the Team


~ Bethlehem Health & Tea Girls ~

Jo Douglas 


Hi I am Jo Douglas and I became the owner of the Bethlehem Health & Tea Store in August 2019. My retail career started as a Pharmacy Technician when I left school and led to over 20 years’ experience working in various pharmacies and herbal and homeopathic dispensaries.  Over this time I have also trained in Shiatsu, Reiki, Massage, Flower Essences and gained a Diploma in Homeopathy. While raising my children who are now 12 and 14, I worked from home for many years seeing clients at “The Natural Therapy Clinic”. I am a firm believer in preventative health and love having the opportunity for the sharing of knowledge that comes from being in a retail environment every day.
