About Me

Holistic Aromatherapy for Women's Health

CAM Aromatherapy - "CAM" for my initials, but I also like to joke that it stands for "Calm and Menopausal". 

 

Hello, my name is Catherine Anne Morris (MFHT) - I completed my training as a Holistic Aromatherapist at the Tisserand Institute in London in 1994 and have since become more and more passionate about holistic health and the use of natural products on the skin.

Aromatherapy is not only about smell - it’s also about the therapeutic properties of the oils. 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!). This was 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 and the impact our senses have on our health and happiness, and that we should never take these for granted.

I grew up in Africa and am passionate about nature, so look out for the odd wildlife/nature photo on my Facebook and Instagram pages. I also love to dance and have recently taken up ballet again, with a Royal Academy of Dance Silver Swans dance course, and I wouldn't give up my Pilates for the world.
