About us

I Love Aromatherapy!

Simply Aroma Colchester
I started training in 2006 where I gained my Diploma in Aromatherapy with BSY. I did my practical training with the lovely Issy who can be found here in Chelmsford and I have never looked back.

I love the feeling that people always leave a massage treatment more relaxed than when they arrived.

Being lucky enough to have spent a good part of the last decade travelling the globe, it has widened my experience and healing capacity no end.

I spent 2 months in Bali over 2 years and broadened my skill set to include Indonesian Balinese Massage, Hot Stone Therapy, Indian Head Massage, Reiki and SKN-RG Rejuvenating Facials.

I have also had the pleasure of working a few days a month with the wonderful acupuncture and holistic clinic, Ipswich Suffolk until I went off on my travels. and in 2016 at Natural Springs Retreat in South-west Turkey, where guests receive healing massage listening to the restorative sounds of the waterfall.


Sadly during 2017 I had to rethink my business due to issues with my wrists and hands,  as of December 2017 I retired from hands-on therapies.  However I am now able to offer an animal whispering service alongside health and wellbeing support and sessions as a qualified Animal Communicator and Holistic Therapist for animals. You can visit my Talk To All Animals website here.

We are based in Colchester, Essex and we offer a range of relaxing massage treatments to women, children and men of all ages. I have worked with the infirm and terminally ill which is hugely rewarding and I have worked with adults with learning disabilities.


The power of healing touch is incredible and people still underestimate how great massage is for the body, not only as a pampering treatment or a response to feeling very stressed, it is hugely beneficial to receive regular treatments to proactively promote wellbeing in the body.


Please note this is an holistic treatment only.

"I left Ruths feeling a lot better than when I arrived, she had the gift of being able to make me relax and be still with myself. I saw swirling colours and feel amazing"

“Before the treatment my legs were tight due to fitness training and my shoulders felt tense as I work in an office. After the treatment I felt loose, relaxed and refreshed. The massage reduced the tight feeling in my legs meaning that fitness training was easier and I was less likely to obtain an injury and it really loosened (not sure if that’s a word) my shoulders, which made me aware of my posture at home and at work. I really enjoyed having my stomach massaged as this is an area which is usually never massaged. Overall the experience was extremely relaxing and the effects were also surprisingly long lasting”
