CLINICAL AROMATHERAPIST Sonya is absolutely passionate about the natural healing properties of essential oils and their ability to promote health and wellbeing, on both a physical and psychological level. Sonya completed a certificate of aromatherapy in 2001 and then a diploma of clinical aromatherapy and massage in 2004. She is also a registered nurse and practising midwife, a certified pregnancy massage therapist, a certified infant massage instructor and mother of two girls. Sonya is an accredited professional member of IAAMA (International Aromatherapy & Aromatic Medicine Association) and keeps up to date with current research and trends.
Based on her experience and particular interest in women and children she set up her company Mother Nurture to focus on personalised, natural care of mothers, mothers to be and their families primarily with the use of aromatherapy and massage. Sonya feels essential oils were a valuable (maybe even essential!) adjunct in enhancing her own wellbeing during two pregnancies and births, and for getting through just about every day since! Aromatherapy is an integral part of daily life for Sonya’s family and she loves being able to empower mums to care for themselves and soothe their children with aromatic treatments.
Sonya offers the following treatment options at MAMA:-
Aromatherapy Consultation (30mins) A thorough consultation is taken to determine your physical and psychological health to ensure essential oil treatments can be prescribed specific to your needs. Consultation is recommended, but not necessary, prior to massage to maximise effects of the treatment. Alternatively, there are some instances that may be conducive to consultation and prescription of aromatherapy treatments other than massage, e.g. morning sickness, skin disorders, emotional issues, babies & children.
Aromatherapy Massage (60mins or 45mins) More than a massage, this nurturing, aromatic treatment will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Time is precious these days. Sonya encourages you to really disconnect from the world with a combination of essential oils and massage specific to your needs.
Sonya is available for consultations on Mondays and Wednesdays at MAMA Kensington.visit www.mothernurture.net.au for more information on Sonya's practice
