Aromatherapy is a precious tool we can use to re-balance when we are out of synch and experiencing physical and mental dis-ease (out of ease) symptoms.Concentrated plant oils, known as essential oils, are applied in dilution using a gentle, relaxing full body massage.
Sky in the lake, will-o-the-wisp, astronaut, explorer, nature-lover… how to describe what I am, we are, inside? In the outside world, a mother of 3, with years of experience in ‘people care’. I offer a peaceful space tucked away in the little village of Horam, where you can drop off your aches and pains, and your worries, and enjoy a relaxing, and rejuvenating massage with a hand picked combination of essential oils. I’m fully trained as an aromatherapist and massage therapist, and love what I do.
As well as aromatherapy, I love to spend my time needle felting all sorts from organic wool. This hobby has come about because of the lockdown restrictions, so time that wouldn’t have otherwise been available, has appeared. There’s always an upside to things, and for me, this has been it! So now I’m setting up a part-time business hoping to sell my creations – some of which are scented with essential oils, and so fit extra well alongside my already blooming passion for natural scent.
Is Aromatherapy For Me?
Muscular Aches & Pains
Lack of Energy
Lack of Drive
A point is made of using essential oils and carrier oils that are from sustainable sources. and there are organic options which I would love to use all the time, but I give you the option as they do cost a bit more.
My towels are organic cotton and I use eco washing powders and ‘soap nuts’. My towels are finally steamed with a handheld steamer so you can be sure of excellent hygiene.
Minimising waste both at home and in my business is a factor I try to always take into account and effort and thought is going in to developing zero-waste products.
This pandemic has changed the way I work a little, and I now follow an especially strict hygiene routine, having taken an additional qualification in infection control especially tailored to our current situation. I wear a mask and eyewear during our time together but do not expect you to do the same, unless you want to.
Treatments At My Home
Massages at my home are at the bottom of the garden in my summerhouse. In fact , it’s not just a summerhouse at all as it’s heated with a radiator and fan heater when it’s at all nippy and has been lined with sheeps wool for additional insulation. If you would enjoy a massage with occasional animal conversations drifting past on the breeze – chickens next door and sheep in the field behind us – then my summerhouse is for you. I’ve had many comments about the lovely atmosphere that has built up in the room and how peaceful people find it there.
What Clients Are Saying
I have been a client of Anna's during the past year and visiting her is so much more than just for a massage. When I leave I feel that a part of me has been reset, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Anna always takes a comprehensive consultation, checking out physical and emotional distress and then selecting oils especially for you. Most recently, when I pulled a muscle in my back, Anna used Emotional Freedom Technique on me, I couldn't believe how effective it was! Also, if you are spiritually awake, Anna has a wealth of wisdom she is more than happy to share. Visiting Anna is an enlightening experience and once you've visited, you'll be counting down the days until you treat yourself again.
Lovely relaxing and healing atmosphere. Improvement in my physical well-being - have noticed healing and relief of muscle pain
Fantastic! I really loved it and felt so relaxed! I thought the whole experience was excellent!
Highly professional. Based on many previous massages, this treatment and was perfect and the oils chosen were just right for me!
Despite my initial reservations I couldn't fault the treatment in any way. I rate my experience as "Excellent" and my shoulder and neck pain was much relieved afterwards which surprised me. Slept well after the massage and had intense dreams which Anna had said might happen. I never normally remember any dreams.
I would not have improved anything. Anna is very professional and reassuring and was attentive when choosing the oils for me, which she talked through with me so I could understand their properties and why they would help me. During the treatment her touch was calming and comforting. Perfect!
The whole massage, from beginning to end, flowed seamlessly. I felt I was able to relax fully and trust Anna. The level of pressure of touch was a perfect balance of gentle yet firm. I say this as a qualified masseur of several different disciplines and with 20 years of experience.
I value the instinct and intuition shown as more important than the tissue manipulation. I found the treatment relaxing. As well as that I found it connected me to deep underlying issues which was most interesting.
Overall a 10/10!
All good! Would recommend Anna to friends and family."
