I first became interested in Complementary therapies in 1986 when I had regular massage to keep me well as a newly qualified teacher.
After studying various styles of massage I became qualified in Aromatherapy, followed by a Clinical Aromatherapy course which looked more deeply into the biochemistry and environmental issues of essential oils.
I continued my studies with courses in Acupressure, Oriental Bodywork and Ayurvedic studies, also courses in Deep Tissue Release, Sports Remedial massage, Ayurvedic Indian Head Massage, Hot and Cold Stones, Lymph Drainage and Pregnancy Massage.
I felt I also wanted to work more diagnostically and learnt Touch for Health, followed by Kinesiology up to Level 6. To support the emotional health I took Emotional Freedom Technique up to Level 2.
I also wanted to work more with Energy and Healing and took courses in Subtle Aromatherapy, Auric Massage, Reiki up to Level 3 and then a 2 year Therapeutic Healing course and then a final postgraduate year in Crystal Healing.
I believe Touch is important in our society and that we are searching for ways to help ourselves feel balanced physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
We are living in very exciting times where we have access to a vast array of knowledge which is being re-discovered and applied in various ways. I feel this is wonderful when applied with love, acceptance and intuition. My aim is to do this.
