“I have put everything I know into my products. My intention is that they bring relief, healing, soothing, relaxation and thereby, transform. I use the finest ingredients available in aromatherapy-infused formulas. These products cannot be duplicated and stand alone in their effectiveness. I created them to enhance your quality of life!’ ~Helen Cummings, Principal Rehabilitation Massage Therapist and Teacher.
