Alison MacColl, BSc Comp Therapies (Aromatherapy), T.A.Th., Cert.Teaching, Fragrance Consultant at Complement Your Health
Lecturer, Trainer & Complementary Therapist, Member of the Thermo-Auricular Association, Certified Infant Massage Instructor
Alison became interested in complementary therapies in 1994 following a course of aromatherapy treatments to help her relax and unwind after a stressful period working in the City of London. She then decided to learn this wonderful therapy for herself.
She undertook professional studies learning how the body works, together with therapeutic massage followed by aromatherapy which enabled Alison to safely prescribe and blend essential oils at regular clinics. Reiki, Hot Stone Massage, Indian Head Massage and Hydrotherm Massage qualifications (to name but a few) followed.
Complement Your Health was launched in summer 2002 and two years later Alison graduated BSc with distinction in Complementary Therapies (Aromatherapy) from Napier University. Following her love for creating bespoke blends she studied perfumery as part of her degree course and introduced bespoke perfume design to her clients.
Alison has delivered Aromatherapy, Indian Head Massage and Therapeutic Massage training courses for private schools, colleges and individuals and is the Thermo Auricular Therapy (“T.A.Th.”) Senior Tutor in Scotland. She is a Certified Infant Massage Instructor with the IAIM and has been delivering baby massage courses since 2010. She is a member of CThA, the leading professional association representing Complementary Therapists in the UK.
Alison became a mum in 2012 and balances the time between her regular aromatherapy clinics, baby massage courses and perfume making events. She also spends time with her children and dogs (who all love massage!).
