Aromatic Heart Chakra Massage to Anchor Emotions

Aromatic Heat Chakra Massage is a simple technique that can be carried out anywhere, anytime. It is a wonderful tool that all Aromatherapists can have “in their pocket” to help anyone anytime.

It is designed to help the therapist help their client (or friend) during times of great stress or emotional upset. It brings huge comfort to the receiver and is very rewarding to give.

Christine developed this over time as she worked with clients who were:

  • Grieving the loss of a loved one
  • Teenagers unable to put words to the feelings
  • Clients who needed help easing the pressure of mental stress

It is beautiful, it is simple, it is a joy to give.

After a life altering car crash in 1993 Christine took her interests in holistic living and complementary health more seriously. Following her successful corporate career she retrained as an Aromatherapy, Massage and Reiki tutor.

Graduating in 1997 with qualifications from Shirley Price Aromatherapy, ITEC and IFPA she began to see clients, and trained her first students shortly thereafter.

As her school grew, she founded Obus School and Wellness centre in Co. Kildare in 2005. Running a world class therapeutic clinic, inviting exciting international experts to teach, and expanding the range of professional diplomas and CPD courses on offer was the focus of this new space.

Whilst running Obus Academy and Wellness Centre Christine has continued to teach at a number of prestigious national and international venues including: Taiwan, China, USA and Malta.

Christine continues to nurture her students and inspire her team of tutors to do new research and write exciting new courses for the Obus program. Christine is currently working on the 2023-2024 schedule of courses and it promises to be a very exciting year ahead.

Christine is the Principal of Obus Academy and is currently the Chair person of IFPA.

Obus Academy offers an IFPA accredited, in person, Aromatherapy Diploma which runs every year from October to September.
