About the author:
Mary Dalgleish has worked as a practising complementary health therapist since 1999.
After experiencing the power of complementary therapies in improving her own health and wellbeing, she studied Aromatherapy at the Tisserand Institute in London (where she later worked as a tutor and student mentor). After that first course, her interest in holistic healing was aroused and she went on to study a range of disciplines including Reflexology, Ear Candling, Ayurvedic Foot Massage, Natural Face Lift Massage and Indian Champissage (traditional head massage) with the late Narendra Mehta at the London Centre of Indian Champissage. She worked with Narendra Mehta for many years and still continues to teach courses on behalf of the London Centre of Indian Champissage.
Mary is a qualified and experienced teacher with a Master's Degree in Education. She was an "Excellence in Education" award winner in the FHT's 2012 awards.
Mary now uses her teaching skills in the field of complementary therapies teaching Anatomy & Physiology, Indian Head Massage, Facial Rejuvenation (Natural Face Lift Massage), Natural Facials, Ayurvedic Foot Massage and Ear Candling courses in the UK, Ireland and ofthen further afield. She also runs her private complementary therapy practice near Wimbledon in South West London.
Mary has co-written two books with her friend and colleague, Lesley Hart who is also an experienced complementary therapist and teacher. Their book "Ear Candling in Essence" previously published by Hodder Arnold, has now been completely revised and updated as "Ear Candling - The Essential Guide".
