Aromatherapy Massage & Reiki
Massage with use of essential oils for each case. The massage includes an individualized evaluation, movement advice to continue after the session and oils to be used after treatment. We also offer aromatherapy workshops.
While doing a master on ‘Managing Women’s Organizations’ in the UK in 1992, one of the assessments was to find a way to deal with stress. I was walking along my neighbourhood and saw advertised a 6-weeks Aromatherapy massage course. I completed it and for 6 months I observed its effect on managing stress – and it worked! Some months later I started a Diploma in Aromatherapy and used the newly acquired techniques and knowledge almost everyday with my daughters who at the time were only one and five years old -as well as continuing to practice with friends and relatives. I had to travel regularly as part of my work in the field of human rights and it helped me a great deal to manage all the transitions. In this way I was also able to share my aromatherapy and massage practice with some of the organizations I worked with, in particular the women’s organizations. I run workshops in different countries and these days combine aromatherapy massage with life coaching and my work as a yoga teacher.
I prepare essential oils depending on the person and use the essential oils for thematic yoga classes. When running workshops I also create my own essential oils that link to the workshops (yoga and aromatherapy or basic aromatherapy massage)
Some qualifications in relation to Aromatherapy Massage include
One Year Diploma in Aromatherapy and Massage. Awarded by the Institute of Aromatherapy, London, UK (1999)
Foundation: Advanced Clinical Massage and Fascia I & II. Awarded by Jing Advance Training School, Brighton, UK (2017)
After working for some years in Aromatherapy, and after receiving Reiki myself several times, I decided to qualify as Reiki facilitator. I completed my training in 2002 and have practiced since then and also completed refresher courses in order to update my knowledge and techniques.
Something that has helped me a a great deal with Reiki is my daily meditation practice as well as my somatic work. I tend to combine Reiki with Aromatherapy massage and some of the fascia techniques and clinical massage I developed more recently (Jing Advanced Massage training).
