At InstantCalmer, You’re in Safe Hands with Beccy
If you are visiting me at InstantCalmer for a treatment, or buying one of my massage gift vouchers for someone you love, you can rest assured that you are in safe hands. I am a fully qualified, registered aromatherapist with the IFPA, so you can lie back, calm your mind and let me work a little relaxation magic.
It is important to always choose a qualified massage therapist because, in rare cases, massage therapy delivered by an unqualified person can actually do more harm than good.
In the UK, the majority of complementary and alternative therapists are not regulated by the government, so you should only choose therapists who are members of reputable, independent or voluntary regulatory bodies which have clear standards for qualification, like IFPA.
IFPA (International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists)
This is one of the largest and most respected practitioner organisations around the world.
It is a registered charity, with the objective of promoting the well-being of the individual. Registered members of the organisation must follow a strong code of ethics and practice, which covers issues including client consent, client relationships, practitioner awareness, and guidance for working within the healthcare professions.
They also provide easy access to the latest research on aromatherapy, so I can make sure that my treatments are current and in accordance with the most recent guidelines.
Essential oils must be diluted and used properly. A qualified IFPA therapist has met the IFPA criteria for education and training, so they are thoroughly educated in the safe use of essential oils, especially for aromatherapy massage.
