I believe in the benefits of aromatherapy and endeavor to educate my clients how to incorporate Aromatherapy into their everyday life as a pleasurable means to preventing illness. Stress is the underlying cause of 80% of all dis-ease. Aromatherapy is an excellent means to alleviate stress and provide comfort. My focus is to identify and address the "root cause" of ill health; not just the symptoms. I empower my clients to be more proactive in their own health care.
After suffering the pain of back injuries as a result of multiple car accidents, I was told that ongoing physical therapy was the only means to provide me any relief. I wasn't happy with that option and was later introduced to aromatherapy, which went a long way to provide pain relief, comfort and lifted of my spirits. As a new mom, aromatherapy was very helpful in helping me to provide comfort and care to my children. I believed that aromatherapy was the best kept secret to wellness ever. After reading as much as I could about the subject, I decided that I wanted to become a certified practitioner to share the wonderful healing benefits of aromatherapy with others in an effort to help them find relief too.
My aromatic journey has taken me to wonderful places around the world to enhance my education. I have been very fortunate to have studied with many world renown experts in aromatherapy and natural health. Let me use my expertise to help you achieve and sustain good health on a daily basis using nature's medicine.
