Hello. I’m Angela Wells and I’m an Aromatherapist and Massage Therapist. I’ve lived in the beautiful city of Edinburgh for 15 years. I graduated from Napier University with a BSc (Distinction) in Complementary Therapies in 2008. I have a background in healthcare, having worked as a nursing assistant before moving to Edinburgh. My passion is aromatherapy, and I am very interested in how essential oils can help those with mental health problems improve their wellbeing. In my spare time, I am a very creative person, enjoying needlework, miniature making (I’m lucky to have a rather large doll’s house!) arts and crafts. I can almost always be found with my head in a book too!
Hope’s Garden is an award winning aromatherapy clinic, offering clinical aromatherapy, aromatherapy massage and pregnancy massage. As well as treatments available to the general public, I also work with a number of agencies in the city.
The ethos of Hope’s Garden is that aromatherapy should be easily accessible across all sectors of society. To help fulfil this mission statement, I have developed links with agencies in the city who support vulnerable people or those with specific health needs and offer reduced cost treatments to their clients. I also came up with the idea of “Gifted Treatments”, which is essentially the massage version of the suspended coffee movement, and I beli
eve it to be one of the first schemes of its kind! Treatments are bought (at a reduced cost) by the public, which are then distributed to either individuals or charities, to those who for socio-economic reasons could not access aromatherapy. Beneficiaries have included homeless women, those recovering from drug and alcohol addiction and those for whom life is a struggle for a variety of reasons.
As well as the clinic treatments at Hope’s Garden, I also give talks on aromatherapy to community groups and demonstrate simple hand massage techniques/ essential oil use as a relaxation tool. I also
make beautiful home treatment products, so my clients can continue the benefits of their treatment at home. Hope’s Garden offers treatments to those with specific health issues and also to those who enjoy good health and simply want a relaxing, rejuvenating treatment.
