    • For the majority of people, a foot massage is bliss and if you are one of those people, look no further than Reflexology to rebalance, relax and revive you.

      But Reflexology is so much more than a foot massage. I have developed my own Reflexology treatment that combines stimulation of the reflex zones of your feet with relaxing massage and deep breathing. Treatments build intensity and efficacy with subsequent treatments but even one treatment can have a profound effect both mentally and physically. A Reflexology Treatment is approximately 60 minutes.

      * Treatments are given in my studio in Walton on Thames.  There is parking and a rail station nearby if taking public Transport. Full details are supplied in the booking process once you show your interest by adding this item to your cart above.

      Five is the magic number with regards to best effect so if you buy five treatments there is a lovely big discount!!

      People love to get a ‘diagnoses’ with Reflexology and the feet certainly do show a multitude of signals of what is healthy and unhealthy in your body but that is not the aim. The aim is to iron out imbalances, blockages and tensions leaving the feet, body and mind in a state of balanced bliss.

      * Payment is made as normal here and then Angelico will ascertain date for the treatment.  Should it not be possible to do this, a full, immediate repayment will be given.

    • By combining essential oils and base oils you can create any number of therapeutic products for yourself, your family and your friends. The possibilities are literally endless. For the creative people amongst us the lure of making something unique is powerful. This can be as simple as adding one essential oil to one carrier oil to make a brilliant moisturiser with none of the added nasties that can often cause problems in commercial products. Here are a few ways to get started, including some simple recipes for you to try out.

      Essential Oils
      Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts that each have different and overlapping properties. Some essential oils have contra indications or precautions that should be followed but so long as you follow the instructions on the bottle you will find that they are invaluable to your daily life. By combining different essential oils in a ‘blend’, you can create endless fragrances that can have both physiological and/or psychological effect. Except for in a few cases, they should not be used neat. Essential oils should be diluted, usually into base oils which are also known as carrier oils.

      Base Oils
      Base oils used to be just that - base oils - used mostly as a base for the more active essential oils and as a basic moisturiser. Now there are myriad base oils available to us and we are far more knowledgeable about what they are capable of. Base oils come in many different weights - some are thick and viscous, some are light and some are medium weight. Some are more easily absorbed by the skin than others. They can be antioxidant, antiviral, help to smooth fine lines or even help to regulate oil secretion.

    • I read somewhere that everybody should have three careers in their lives. I think I have had three so far and am about to embark on a fourth so I’m doing pretty well!

      I trained as a dancer and danced professionally until my first child was born. I really believed that I would just carry on dancing after she was born but we just didn’t like being away from each other. Being a dancer requires hours and hours of training, rehearsing and performing so I segued out of dancing and into aromatherapy where I created and consulted on many brands, one of which had a full ITEC Massage School in Richmond. I even made a bespoke perfume for royalty!

      I have written two and one third books! One on aromatherapy and a three way collaboration on massage for babies, both published by Ryland Peters and Small. I love writing and hope to do more. Arms Out Like Wings is my first story.

      Both aromatherapy and dance are still very much in my life. I go to ballet class regularly and I have this beautiful company called Angelico. Below is a demonstration of how to use my Angelico Serums by my daughter Megan.
