My love of aromatherapy started as a child making rose petal perfume and mashing rowan berries in to pastes. As a teenager I used essential oils to help me revise for my exams. As an adult an aromatherapy massage helped me through a stressful but crucial OFSTED inspection. This aromatherapy massage was pivotal in my life. In 2006 I completed my training and started Revive, starting a new path as a professional rose petal blender !
I left a career in teaching in 2005 and undertook intensive training that included extensive studying with rigorous examination and qualification requirements at The Institute for Traditional Herbal Medicine at Regents College, London. I am professionally recognised by the International Federation for Professional Aromatherapists, a professional body that ensures the highest standards of professional practice and expertise.
I offer a specialist approach as a Clinical Aromatherapist with an Oriental Medicine approach to practice. Adopting an Oriental Medicine approach means that we treat the underlying cause of any health problem rather than just the symptoms. This involves choosing the most appropriate essential oils for you and blending them uniquely for you. This focus integrates a rebalancing of mind, body, and spirit that complements your well-being, helping you face whatever life brings, with serenity, inner peace and control, enabling you to get the most out of life
Achieving a healthy work, life balance is essential to our well-being, investing in ourselves through massage is one way of doing this, with this in mind I like to make sure you get the time, care and attention you need. To make sure this is achieved you will never be rushed at the end of your treatment. This way you can savour the sense of wellbeing, taking it with you to face life with renewed energy and vigour.
As part of my quality of service It’s not my policy to cram lots of people in for appointments, instead I choose to limit the number of people I see each day and each week. This way you are guaranteed the same quality of treatment whether you come first thing in the morning or last thing at night or at the start or end of the week. With guaranteed standards each treatment your body will feel the cumulative advantages of having more energy and less tension for longer.
To ensure quality in your treatments I choose to use the best quality organic essential oils and carrier oils. I know that these oils have not been tampered with, have no added harmful chemicals and are not cheaper fragrance oils that are synthetic copies of true essential oils. This way your body benefits from natural ingredients that will work with your body to boost your immune and circulatory giving you a natural energy to live life to the full.
The massage I offer focuses on relieving stress, tension and stiffness in the major muscle groups. I also concentrate on the meridians and acupressure points. This allows your natural energy to flow freely allowing you to get the most out of your life without stiffness, tension or pain.
All in all helping you feel more like a human being and less like a human doing.
