ABOUT

A PASSION FOR WOMEN’S WELLBEING

Hi, I’m Nikki Wall.  Idunn’s Garden Therapies is an ongoing evolution of my practice as a complementary therapist with a passion for supporting women’s wellbeing.

As a woman, sister, mother and now grandmother, I know the importance of taking time for yourself, but also how crucial it is to access good support. This is why, since qualifying as a complimentary therapist, I have embarked on various professional development to ensure that I continue to improve upon the services I offer to you!

WHY IDUNN’S GARDEN?

Idunn is the keeper of the apples of immortality that keep the Norse gods young and in good health.  She is a goddess of Spring and rejuvenation, and the energy she brings forth is entirely in keeping with the work that I do!

And garden? I’m a lover of plants (surely all aromatherapists are?) with an interest in herbalism and an increasing desire to build upon using materials and products sourced from the land around me.  Whilst my studio is not (yet) an actual garden (a dream of mine!) the way in which I work is very much as a gardener of wellbeing.  No manicured, regimented lawns from me, rather a weaving together of a polyculture of therapies designed to work in harmony with supporting you to find your own path towards balance (homeostasis).
