Essential oils have been used for centuries, by many different cultures.  There is an ancient history of the use of plants as medicines as well as within cosmetics and perfumes.  Tree bark, roots, leaves, petals and flowers are just some of the elements of plants where essences can be obtained from.  When taken from plants, the essences are pure and very strong and this is the reason that only 1 or 2 drops of an essential oil are put into a blend, mixed with a carrier oil, like almond or grapeseed oil.

FHT-Accredited Pregnancy Massage Training at Cheltenham School of Complementary Therapy & Beauty May 14th and 15th, 2018 It’s difficult for massage therapists to decide what training they would like to invest in as there’s just so many courses out there to choose from.  Some massage therapists decided to treat pregnant clients without additional specialist training. As long as therapists are insured, this is ok, although we would like to think that specialist pregnancy massage training gives qualified therapists an edge of knowledge and expertise that the client will respect. I think most of us are finding that clients are more discerning than ever and in my own therapy I have […]

Some theorists say that crystal deposits (waste from cells) settle around nerve endings and when these are cleared the body works more effectively.
