Aromatherapy is an ancient practice stemming back some thousands of years. It is an art and science of utilising aromatic essential oils to aid health and well-being. These essential oils are collected from plant material; flowers, seeds, roots, tree bark are just some of the materials essential oils are collected from. The essential oils have therapuetic properties that aid many ailments, help with nourishing our mind and body, and lift our spirits.

I believe that as the worlds health care systems come under ever greater pressure, and the medicines to treat illness become ever more expensive, and that their side-effects can and do cause more harm than good, that a new way of treating illness and disease is to be found in the old and ancient ways of the past, referred to by some as 'quackery' . I have a vision, a dream, of helping as many of my fellow human beings, people around the world, through this medium of Udemy, to learn and empower themselves with holistic therapy tools that can aid the healing of mind, body and Spirit; this is truly liberating and taking back responsibility of our own health, well-being and gives us more choices. I believe our physical ailments are our soul crying out to be heard, to be healed - we are provided early warning signs and we must learn how to hear and interpret these. What you learn here is life changing, liberating and a pathway to empowerment.
It was the late 1990s when Deborah began her journey of the healing arts. She took studies in Swedish Body Massage, Aromatherapy, Indian head massage, Reflexology, Hot stone therapy, Hopi ear candling, and many more courses.

Deborah loves nature and in her spare time will record videos of local natural habitats and upload these into the Reiki support group she has created to supplement student experience; there is often distance healing too.
Deborah digressed into nursing which provided many, many opportunities for learning and although this was not her path found Reiki to be deeply calming and supportive for elderly people with Dementias, and people with mental illness type issues. Deborah has worked with traumatised souls infusing Reiki into her time with them.
