About Christine

Christine Stephenson - Medical HerbalistI gained a degree in Herbal Medicine at the College of Phytotherapy (Herbal Medicine) in 2002 and have been practicing in West Wales since 2003. I am a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists – founded in 1864 and dedicated to ensuring that strict codes of ethics and practice are adhered to.  Members are required to participate in continued professional development.

Recently, I have trained as a Reflexologist, and have found this therapy to be very beneficial on its own and combined with herbal treatment  – see page heading Reflexology for further details.

I enjoy growing many medicinal and aromatic plants in my garden at Maesllyn – many of which I use to make infused oils, salves and creams for my herbal medicine and reflexology practice.
