Earthflower Therapies is the practice of Emma Charlton ITHMA MIFPA. I'm a Clinical Aromatherapist, Massage Therapist & Reiki practitioner, working in Twickenham.
We are all individuals, therefore no two Earthflower Therapy treatments are the same. Aromatherapy blends, massage techniques and pressure are tailored to each client, making each visit a unique & holistic experience. Importantly, the client is always in control. This personalised approach allows clients to release and re-charge in the tranquil and supportive environment of the Earthflower Therapies clinic room.
Massage approaches vary, depending on the needs of each client. I may suggest techniques aimed specifically at releasing long-held patterns in the body's muscle and other tissues (myofascial release work). I will discuss the massage approach at the start of each treatment.
Aromatherapy Blending appointments are also available (without massage), where bespoke essential oil blends and treatment plans are designed, to support health and wellbeing.

Please visit my website for more information about how I work. In particular you might be intrigued by 'no hands' massage; this is not hands-off energy work, nor is it using elbows! My website explains more, or visit www.nohandsmassage.com. Feel free to email or phone me for more information or to ask any questions before you book. Please note that I always confirm first appointments by phone.
