Rebecca was brought up in a valley nestled in the Welsh hills. Her mother, an ex biology teacher, working in immunology research, helped to nurture her interest in nature and science. Surrounded as they were by forests and fields, it was second nature to use the plants around them as both a larder and medical cabinet combined.
Although, Rebecca’s love of nature has accompanied her throughout her life, it was not until 2004 that her interest in Aromatherapy and Massage truly came to the fore. Her scientific background stood her in good stead when she began her studies at the highly acclaimed New Zealand College of Massage, where an in–depth understanding of the underlying anatomy and physiology was essential to the application of a wide variety of therapeutic massage techniques. One of her tutors was an aromatherapist for the All Blacks; now, if the therapeutic effects of aromatherapy (or “that smelly stuff” as a male friend of hers’ put it) were enough to convince a bunch of testosterone filled blokes, then she was definitely interested in learning more.
