My name is Alison Beavan and I am a fully qualified and insured complementary therapist and a member of the Complementary Therapists Association. I decided to take a career change as I felt I needed to make some changes in my life and I wanted to do something worthwhile and to help other people. I had always had an interest in aromatherapy so I initially trained in aromatherapy massage as this is my passion and I love all the essential oils as they smell gorgeous and have many therapeutic benefits. Since then I have undertaken various other massage training courses, all with Jackie Hamilton School of Therapies in Norwich.
I used to do some freelance work for a company called My Personal Sanctuary where we would set up in holiday cabins and offered a variety of treatments, with them I trained in facials and body scrubs and undertook my manicure and pedicure training with Solis Beauty in Norwich. Due to my expanding business and client base I no longer have the time to work for them but it was work which I enjoyed and met some lovely people and was fantastic experience.
I also do some freelance work for various yoga holiday companies at a beautiful resort in West Lexham, Norfolk.
I love my job and I find it very rewarding, especially when I see the improvement I have made to someone’s life, even if it’s just taking away the pain for a little while.
