More about your instructor:

Shelley Monrad has her International Diplomas in Aromatherapy and Reflexology.
Her business Aromaflex began with her own babies as Shelley wanted to share her passion and interest in Aromatherapy to other mums and mums to be. Aroma means Aromatherapy and Flex means Reflexology. 28 years ago, essential oils were not commonly used in pregnancy. Having trained in the UK, she was taught what oils were safe and the application methods. Over the course of her own four pregnancies, Shelley discovered that there were some blends and synergies needed to enhance this process and to encourage safe delivery for both mother and baby. Also discovering how effective essential oils were in post-partum and the stories she heard from other new mums the journey they all had. Having a regular clientele base on Trafalgar Street, Nelson for over 23 years, Shelley has certainly helped a lot of women over these years, and has many great stories to tell of success within her safe practice of caring for mums and mums to be.
