My name is Jo Soulsby , I’m a qualified Clinical Aromatherapist, Reiki Master and Complementary Health Practitioner based in Empingham, Rutland.

I treat both humans and dogs and believe both deserve and need at times a range of therapies to give strength to our daily lives and to enable us to ‘live life well’.

Human therapies take place in my beautiful purpose built treatment room in Empingham.

Canine (The Soulful Dog) in the future will be offered via home visits.

As a holistic therapist my main mission is to work towards treating the whole being to build a strong foundation to support a person’s daily life.

The Soulful treatment room

I qualified as a Clinical Aromatherapist and massage therapist in 2014 from the Institute of Traditional Herbal Medicine and Aromatherapy (ITHMA) based at Regents University in Regents Park, London. I am a full member of ‘The International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists’ (IFPA) and proud also to be a member of the Complementary and Natural Health care Council (CNHC)

Reiki is also a passion of mine and have been a practicing Reiki Master since 2013 and have gained a lot of benefit, guidance and inspiration from being a member of the UK Reiki Federation.

To support my personal spiritual development I also studied at the College of Psychic Studies in London for a number of years. Through this and my Reiki practice I’m keen to also help people balance the more subtle energies of their bodies in particular through Chakra clearing and balancing.

Supporting complementary therapies such as Indian Head Massage, Hopi Ear Candling and Natural Face Lift are also offered to help support my holistic approach.

The need to provide Canine healing came via my dog Jack as he began to develop and display a number of muscular and neurological conditions.

From there I’m now qualified as a Canine Merisha Massage Therapist and apply my Reiki practice to the canine world.

This year has led me to qualifying as A ‘Canine Herbal Choices Consultant’.

This combination of Canine therapies will launch officially as ‘The Soulful Dog’ in 2020.

2020 will also see the introduction of Soulful Workshops and Soulful Footsteps for both Humans and Dogs.

With all that in mind I’m looking forward to a new beginning with you, and most importantly helping you to Live Life Well

Useful Links and memberships

Being associated and an active member of key bodies and associations is very important to me as they not only give support, but incorporate guidelines & clear codes of conduct.

There is also the requirement to complete CPD (continuous professional development) on an annual basis.

From a client’s perspective they are there to instil confidence in the Therapist you are visiting.
