Flowers for therapy - 'Food for the body and flowers for the soul'

It is now official, after much research flowers and plants have been proved to enhance the working and living environment. We all function better if there are plants and flowers in our room.
Flowers for therapy sessions aim to help and relax clients who are ill, hospitalised or just fed up and feeling low. Working in either your home or place of treatment or recovery a 1 or 2 hour session working with flowers will contribute to a better feeling of well being and lift the spirit.

We are available for a one off session or a regular therapy programme. Demonstration or hands on sessions how ever you feel on the day.
