Aromatherapy massage involves the use of pure essential oils to help promote health and enhance well-being. It works on both physical and emotional levels, aiding relaxation, restoring balance and revitalising mind, body and spirit.
Aromatherapy can benefit the body in a number of ways. These benefits are not only brought about through the massage itself, but also by the direct effect the essential oils have on the body. The secret is to combine the right essential oils to suit the particular ailment that the recipient is suffering from.
Massage during aromatherapy treatments, further aids the absorption of oils into the body, helps improve skin condition and speeds up lymphatic drainage, eliminating excess toxins from the body, stimulating the body’s natural immunity, and helps relieve stress and tension to promote a feeling of general relaxation and well-being. Once the massage oil has been prepared, the most important thing is for the patient to feel relaxed, and enjoy!
A gentle soothing massage combined with a personal blend of pure essential oils that absorb deep into the skin to relieve the stresses of body and mind. The depth of the aromatherapy massage movements can be adapted to suit your needs.
I am a qualified Iyengar Yoga Teacher to Junior Intermediate Level 1 and have been teaching since 2003.

I have professional membership of the Iyengar Yoga Association (IYA UK), Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS) and the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (IFPA). I am also Membership Secretary of the Dorset and Hampshire Iyengar Yoga Institute (DHIYI).
I aspire to the yamas and niyamas of yoga and aim to live according to yoga philosophy. My joy is teaching people yoga, helping them discover the benefits of yoga and seeing the small improvements or ‘awakenings’ in everyday life.
Prior to teaching yoga, I taught aerobic exercise, modern jive dancing and have a wide experience in teaching and performing. I am also a trainer in inter-personal skills, presentation skills and communications. My practical experience and knowledge of exercise, dance and aromatherapy massage enables me to take a holistic approach to teaching and clients. My work in the fields of teaching, inter-personal skills training and in management, has offered me a full and varied career in a service industry.
