It has never been more important for us to take care of our health and well being, and to manage and relieve the stress in our lives, and the impact that this has on our mind, body and spirit.

In order to keep you and me as safe as possible, but still be able to receive the wonderful benefits of aromatherapy, it will be necessary for us to follow the guidelines very carefully.

My practice remains open, and I continue to follow safety guidelines to protect my clients as well as myself and my family. They may well change according to the circumstances, in which case I will amend them accordingly. Although the government guidelines have now eased, it is evident that the pandemic is very much still with us, and at present my own health and safety procedures have not changed.

I have received both vaccinations and a booster. I carry out a lateral flow test prior to each appointment, and ask my clients to do the same, if possible.

Clients will be asked to observe the safety guidelines throughout their visit: this includes the wearing of masks, and using hand sanitizer/hand washing. 

A consultation will take place by phone or video link prior to the appointment: as part of this consultation, I will talk through the safety guidelines, and check that it is safe for you to come for your appointment. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions, and to let me know if you are unable to comply with any of the guidelines for any reason (for example, if you are exempt from wearing a mask for medical reasons). Face to face consultations may be possible in a socially distanced manner in fine weather.

I will wear a face mask throughout the appointment, and will wash and sanitise my hands carefully prior to the massage. Appointments will be more limited to allow deep cleaning to take place between appointments. Ventilation of the room will be carried out between each appointment.

As usual, all bedding will be washed for every client.

Online consulatations for self care and self massage are available for clients who are shielding or unable to come to appointments. Please see my treatment page for details.

If any client has had, or been in contact with anyone who has had Covid-19 symptoms, will not be able to have treatment until they have had two negative lateral flow tests). Treatment will also not be possible for anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19 (with or without symptoms), until it is deemed safe for them to do so.

Any clients who are unsure whether it is safe for them to receive aromatherapy treatment due to medical reasons, will be asked to gain  the permission of their doctor before proceeding.

A full risk assessment is available on request.

With many thanks for your cooperation, stay safe, Liz

“I felt the whole experience was a two way process. It was good to be given different options for oils and then talk through the benefits of combinations. It really felt as if it was tailored to my exact needs. I was impressed by the level of knowledge of my therapist, and she was able to communicate it very well to me.”

“The blend smelled lovely, and was comforting, warming, exactly what I needed for my calf strain.”

“After the massage, the pain had virtually disappeared. This was my first ever massage and I was really impressed by the results.”

“I feel relaxed, less tense, muscles feel freer, head and shoulders feel lighter, and I feel more accepting and patient”.

“It was a very holistic experience”.

“The whole experience has been wonderful. Liz has a very confident and soothing touch. Her touch is firm and vey enjoyable. The choice of music also reflects the calming atmosphere. The warmth of the soft towels and ambience of the room is another lovely touch.”

“I particularly enjoyed the back, head and foot massages. Afterwards I felt much more relaxed and very comforted, and I felt very comfortable and safe throughout the treatment. The communication during the consultation was good and I liked being involved in the choice of oils. It was relaxing, calming and made me feel happy.”

 “I particularly liked the fact that you made sure I was warm, by covering the parts of me that weren’t being massaged, and that you discussed the choice of oils with me.”

"Thanks for all the wonderful relaxing aromatherapy sessions. it really has helped me a lot, especially with you being such a good listener as well. in the early days when I was really anxious and stressed, I probably really bent your ear, so thanks!"

"You really helped me with my leg - got me back to walking again!"

"That was a fascinating talk, thank you."

"I really enjoyed your talk, so interesting!"

"I just wanted to send a brief note of thanks for your very kind time and expertise you shared at our monthly team meeting in York on Thursday. It was a fascinating talk, masterfully squeezed into the short 30 minute window we had available. The team enjoyed the session and found the information incredibly helpful so I wouldn’t be surprised if you get some follow-up queries."

“Many thanks for the massage oil mix, I really like the aroma of the oils you mixed for me, I found them very subtle, probably because I’ve been using neat lavender oil on my pillow but now I have used them a few nights the aromas are becoming more apparent and I do seem to be having more settled nights, I still wake throughout the night but that is the discomfort in my legs but I do go back to sleep now, a huge improvement . Thank you.”
