I’ve always been fascinated by the beautiful aromas of essential oils that I purchased in shops & markets. Initially I thought they were just lovely smelling substances, until curiosity as to what the fuss was all about led me to attend an introductory course in Aromatherapy, some 20 years ago. This experience was for me a light bulb moment! The insight into their therapeutic benefits made me see that there was more to life than my all consuming career in sales & marketing. Afterwards, I was determined to seek out a Practitioner qualification course, and become a Therapist in the field of Complementary Medicine.
Daily life took over as it does & I did nothing about fulfilling my passion. Then, the sudden & devastating death of my dear father was the wake up call I needed & in 1997 I qualified with a L5 Diploma at the “Institute for Traditional Herbal Medicine & Aromatherapy” in London.
For me it was the learning experience of a lifetime. The training approached clinical Aromatherapy & massage therapy as a comprehensive & integrated complete healing art. It gave a unique & dynamic blend of sound scientific & holistic, Western & Oriental therapeutic & diagnostic approaches. I learnt the complex make up / energetic effects of essential oils on our bodies & emotions; with the focus not only on treating symptoms, but addressing underlying energetic imbalances, which are at the root of any health problem.
Only The Best Will Do…
There I was given access to an essential oil supplier who provide the very best of nature’s wild-crafted & organic treasures from all over the world. Years on they are universally respected for meeting the needs of ethical & concerned customers, like myself, who want only 100% pure quality materials – without compromising by price.
The Journey Continues…
It was whilst attending a Post Graduate advanced therapeutic massage course in 1998, that I met an amazing woman, who later gave me my first experience of a Reiki Healing treatment. I didn’t know what to expect, but my first healing experience was a profound one.
A friend for life & later my Reiki Master / Teacher, who continues to inspire me with the principles of Reiki & who gave me the gifts of Reiki attunements at Level 1 & Practitioner Level 2.
With that came my determination to become a multi-discipline Therapist. I specialise in: Advanced Remedial & Acupressure Massage, Pregnancy Massage, advanced Holistic Reflexology & Spinal Reflexology, Prenatal/pregnancy/post natal Reflexology, Reflexology for childhood anxiety, Clinical Aromatherapy, Reiki & Infant Massage Instruction.
Years of personal development, have culminated in the realisation of my ultimate dream: to have my own purpose built venue, where I can run my Practice. An environment where clients can enjoy serenity comfort & tranquility: Tanzanite Blue Holistic Centre.
Why Tanzanite Blue? Well, I named my Practice after one of the most rare & beautiful crystals – Tanzanite – with its beautiful transmuting blue shades. This crystal is known to enhance intuition & spiritual awareness & brings harmony to the psyche.
