testimonials

"Having already completed my Diploma of Reflexology at Nature Care, the Aromatherapy Course proved to be an excellent additional qualification - I use Aromatherapy in my Reflexology treatments and "vice versa". Our tutors were so knowledgeable and passionate about their subject. How could we not become enthused ourselves!"
