Jo Harris – Remedial Massage Therapist
Hi, I am a prenatal & remedial massage therapist, aromatherapist, baby massage and yoga instructor, kid’s yoga instructor and a HypnoBirthing instructor.
I have always been interested in doing things naturally and thus became passionate about essential oils and massage for health and wellbeing. In 2006, I received my first professional qualifications in both aromatherapy and in massage. A couple of years later, I had the chance to study a course on integrating essential oils and pregnancy and this quickly led to an interest and love of working with pregnant women and babies.
After completing my remedial massage diploma, I then studied a diploma in prenatal massage. As a compliment to prenatal massage, I also studied baby massage and baby yoga and then starting giving workshops to parents and grandparents as well as massage workshops to couples, so partners could lovingly massage the mother-to-be during labour.
In 2009, with my own pregnancy, I experienced the great efficacy of the birth preparation program HypnoBirthing® and became a HypnoBirthing® instructor. In the meantime, I have completed professional development courses in aromatherapy, including aromatherapy and children. I have attained reiki level II and I love seeing the benefits this gives people. I integrate aromatherapy and different styles of massage as well as reiki, if need be, for my prenatal & postnatal massage sessions. I utilise essential oils, acupressure points and other techniques for induction massages.
I devote my spare time to my daughter and to making natural skincare and aromatherapy products for my brand AromaZen naturals.
