Professional aromatherapist

My Story

When I was seven years old, headaches were a constant occurrence that seemed to have no explicable cause.

One night, suffering more acutely than usual, my father sat beside me and began to massage my temples gently and rhythmically. To this day I can recall the heavenly relief of this soothing application, surprised by the lightness and tenderness of his touch. Not only did this alleviate the pain and accompanying nausea, but I fell into a deep and blissful sleep, waking the next morning feeling totally refreshed and alive.

For this reason I have named my service "Alivio", which is actually the Spanish word for 'relief', neatly echoing my mother's Colombian heritage, while honouring my English father's healing capacity.

The art and power of massage has long since captivated me and after receiving positive feedback over the years, I decided to qualify professionally and to pass on the wonderful restorative effects of this therapeutic craft.

Create a serene sanctuary where individuals can escape the stresses of daily life, reconnect with their inner selves, and experience the transformative power of massage applications and natural essential oils.

Strive to provide personalised aromatherapy massage treatments that go beyond mere relaxation aiming to enhance physical, mental, and emotional balance.

Use the skills I have acquired (with the help of continuous learning & development) coupled with the therapeutic properties of carefully selected essential oils to promote a profound sense of harmony vitality and wellbeing. 


An account of the journey so far:


To achieve the certificated standard required by the Federation of Holistic Therapists, I completed a one year qualification programme at the double award-winning Brighton Holistics therapy training centre.

This included over 80 live case studies, an intensive anatomy and physiology course and the development of a researched Aromatherapy Bible comprising over 35 essential oils and carrier oils.

Tutor's quote:

"I honestly cannot tell you what an impressive Aromatherapy bible this is. It is by far the best one I have ever marked"
