Aromatherapy

Join Victoria for a deeply restorative, holistic Aromatherapy treatment. Sessions are tailored to suit your needs, combining premium essential oils and therapeutic massage techniques to help relieve tension, stress, anxiety and symptomatic issues arising from 21st century living! Holistic Aromatherapy aims to restore balance, vitality and promote emotional resilience and harmony of mind, body and spirit.

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the systematic external use of essential oils to improve physical and emotional well-being. It is an especially effective treatment for stress-related problems and a variety of chronic conditions. It can be used on any age.

Essential oils, extracted from plants, possess distinctive therapeutic properties, which can be utilised to improve health and prevent disease. They are chemically complex, and, like other herbal medicines, have effects on animal, including human animal, anatomy and physiology. They are aromatic, volatile substances extracted from a single botanical source by distillation or expression. Essential oils have been utilised in fragrances, flavours and medicines for thousands of years. There are some 400 essential oils extracted from plants all over the world. Some of the popular oils used in aromatherapy today include chamomile, lavender, rosemary and tea tree.

How can Aromatherapy Support you?

Aromatherapy can be particularly helpful in how we respond to stress. Each of us has our own areas of weakness, whether these be, for example, a tendency to digestive disturbance, disruption of the menstrual cycle, difficulty sleeping, or a tendency to headaches and migraines. And the complex chemistry of essential oils enables a more precise targeting than merely using their ability to help relax or energise.

Additionally, these oils, because of the link between smell and the ability to evoke memory, may have some even more profound, more mysterious effects. Many clients will find that they will respond in a far more personal way to an individual oil, or blend, than simply to its known effects due to the properties and actions of its chemistry

What happens in Victoria's aromatherapy session?

Victoria's approach to massage has profoundly changed since she trained as a craniosacral practitioner. She utilises stillness within a hands on session,with an instinct to see how a lighter touch may engage a client’s own body to become aware of unnecessary muscular tension. She is a practitioner for clients whose muscular tension may be emotional holding, rather than specific and local muscular injury, or acute postural or usage trauma.

Today is [Mother] Earth Day - thinking about the entire Earth and what we can do to ensure survival on this planet can feel daunting - but here are some local initiatives that can support you to support the Earth.

🌍 @growing_green_london - set up by local Mamas - amongst other things their focus is rewilding our local schools, you can support them by donating or volunteering - they have a second-hand clothes sale fundraiser this Sunday and an Open Garden event on 9th June - join them.

🌍 @heath_hands - supporting our beautiful Hampstead Heath, sustaining its biodiversity and protecting it for wildlife and humans to enjoy.

🌍 @nadiaswastechallenge - a local Mama who gives us her own experiences of modifying domestic habits to help support the Earth - giving realistic tips - follow her page.

🌍 @fair_well_london - tackle the plastic pollution crisis by removing plastic packaging from the final stage of the food distribution chain and solving the main problem with plastic-free shopping: inconvenience. They come to you, you just need to book and buy.

🌍 @kentishtownlibraryofthings - borrow items, such as drills, carpet cleaners, projectors - you don't have to buy them - sharing the things you won't use often is a simple action all of us can take to live more sustainably - they're based at Kentish Town Library.

🌍 @kentishtownvegbox - all their produce is organic or naturally grown and sourced from small-scale farms as close to London as possible.

These are just a few of the local initiatives supporting our environment, support them and use them - helping the Earth starts at home.

[This post is a re-working of our 2023 Earth Day post, but it's all just as relevant]

A warm re-introduction to Jasmin (Jazz) McGonigle @camdenbabywearing who's recently set up the wonderful resource of a sling and baby carrier library in our corner of London. 

Jazz is a mother to two beautiful girls, with one more on the way. Motherhood changed everything for her, as it does for many new mothers. Realising she couldn't return to her job, she found purpose in supporting other new parents on their journey. Discovering Baby-wearing was transformative, giving her the confidence to venture out with a less fussy baby. She knew she had found her calling. 

Seeing children being worn brings her immense joy. Jazz personally favours woven wraps and has delved into the world of different fabrics and tying techniques.

Now a qualified baby-wearing consultant, Jazz runs her own Sling Library, empowering others to experience the benefits of baby-wearing from pregnancy to toddlerhood. 

Volunteering with @wrapahug_sling_library in East London and attending their monthly Family meet-ups in Tower Hamlets brings her great fulfillment. However, as a local parent in North London, Jazz felt compelled to start something closer to home, leading to the creation of the Sling Library at Moon. 

She now offers monthly sling library sessions and home visits to support parents during the postpartum period. 

Jazz also participates in Moon's monthly 'New Parent Drop-in,' cherishing the supportive community it provides.

You can find out more about Jazz and the sling library via the link in our bio.

We will practice mindfulness and yoga with Spring baby animals, Spring bugs, and weather changes. 

Rainbow Kids & Family yoga classes are interactive, social, and all about connection. We will co-create the class together in a magical and playful way using lots of creativity sprinkled throughout the class.

We use games, partner and Acro yoga, stories, music, dancing, art, mindfulness and relaxation to bring yoga alive for children.
