About Vortex Therapy


Aromatherapy and Massage

I have been working as a Massage Practitioner since 1990 (32 years). I trained in massage in 1990 with the Association of Massage Practitioners (AMP) in London; then I trained as an Aromatherapist (31 years).
In 1991. I started my Aromatherapy training with the London School of Aromatherapy (LSA) under the guidance of the Senior Tutor, Lotte Rose and Principal, Patricia Davis who wrote Aromatherapy An A-Z (a classic book!). I am qualified to use the title LLSA after my name (it means Licentiate of London School of Aromatherapy).


I also started my Reiki training in 1997 with the Chris Parkes Reiki School and became a Reiki Master in 1999 (23 years) and a Reiki Teacher in 2021.
