Wantage Massage

Holistic Aromatherapist for Women's Health

I completed my training as a Holistic Aromatherapist at the Tisserand Institute in London in 1994. Unfortunately, life took me in other directions but I returned to this profession later in life after a long hiatus, and plan to continue studying holistic health until my memory no longer works :-) Having recently been through the peri-menopause and menopause I truly understand the debilitating effect hormonal imbalance, stress and disturbed sleep patterns can have on us all and our emotional wellbeing, no matter what our age. 


Aromatherapy is not only about the olfactory system and smell - it’s also about the therapeutic properties of the oils when absorbed into the body via the skin. During an aromatherapy session, essential oils are mixed with a carrier oil and usually administered via massage using soft tissue manipulation to relax a specific area of the body or the whole body. The aroma of the oils and the absorption into the skin, together with the experience of a relaxing massage is a fantastic way to relieve stresses of everyday life, boost the immune system and generally help your body to combat infection, relax sore muscles, relieve skin problems among other things.

A note of interest - I completely lost my sense of smell in my early 30’s (and my sense of taste with it!). A devastating loss (or two losses), with doctors and specialists at the time telling me that I may never gain these senses back again. Thankfully after a year my sense of smell very slowly started to return (and with it I slowly started to be able to taste again). This was a life lesson in the importance of the impact our senses have on our health and happiness, and that we should never take these for granted.

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils in holistic treatments, tailored to you and your needs to alleviate and help support your physical and mental wellbeing.  Essential oils are natural oils extracted from plants, with each oil containing individual botanical and chemical properties.  Essential oils can be applied using various methods including, but not limited to, massage, bath oils, body oils, shower gels, inhalation.  Essential oils have been used for their therapeutic properties for many centuries.  My treatments are all carried out using Swedish massage, a relaxing, de-stressing massage technique to help with a variety of daily menopausal problems.
