Since a young age, I’ve been a natural healer, but growing up I shied away from it. My first career was a qualified childcare worker. I worked all across the board, from toddlers to teenagers! Although I loved my work, I always knew that there was something else out there for me. Several years ago, I made a life-changing decision; I wanted to pursue my dreams and become a holistic therapist. It took a lot of hard work and dedication, but I managed to get there in the end. I am extremely happy with where I am now in my life and I absolutely love bringing joy and healing into other people’s lives via the art of massage therapy and aromatherapy.
Communication is key. I need to know what you're feeling, experiencing and what you're looking to gain in order to best help you. In turn, I will explain the treatment and what you can expect to gain from it.
Massage therapy and aromatherapy are tools to help heal. Whether it's stress, illness or simply to pamper yourself, the benefits of massage can be life changing. I would be honored to take that journey with you.
I only use certified organic essential oils in all of my treatments. The main reason I use only certified organic essential oil is that it gives me the peace of mind and the guarantee that the essential oil is of the purest quality.
Organic means that the products have no hidden synthetic ingredients, do not contain genetically modified organisms (GMO's) and the manufacturing facilities have passed certification inspections. Organic farmers work to create a balanced and sustainable farming system and have a concern for the future of the land on which they farm.
Organic farming produces herbs and plants that are free of pesticides, herbicides and their residues. Extracting essential oils from modified or chemically treated plants can produce essential oil with traces of these elements and less than pure results. To be truly effective, essential oils must be absolutely pure and 100% natural. Non organic, synthetic, adulterated or improperly distilled oils, although less expensive, will not provide the same desirable effects and may even have adverse effects. Without knowing the source, non organic essential oils may contain many neutral and unnatural additives.
Another important feature of using organic plants is that the plants grow freely without the aid of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Some of the important constituents found in plants are naturally produced by the plant to protect itself from pests and other environmental stressors. Many of these defense mechanisms they produce are the essential oils themselves! In light of this, it can be argued that chemical and pesticide-aided plants need not be as self reliant and may not produce the same constituents. In addition, organic soil has been shown to provide more nutrients to the plant, and much is being written in the press about the vitality of organic plants.
Organic farming is gentler on the environment, encourages a diverse habitat for birds and animals, protects the quality of water, provides a safer workplace for farmers and produces plants that offer the natural full spectrum of healing constituents. Organic farming encourages farmers to take an active role in the quality of their crops and farmers are rewarded with premium prices for their crops.
