MY TRUTH, MY PATH…
Leading Spa’s Natural Evolution
I feel fortunate because I’ve always managed to do the work I love.
As a child growing up in Yorkshire I worked with horses, seeing to their needs, treating their minor injuries and whenever I had free time (between school and the horses) I roamed the wild, magical Yorkshire moors collecting bilberries, wild flowers and, to my mother’s utter dismay, frog spawn.
At the time, of course, I had no idea I was dabbling with what would become my life’s work – touch, bio-chemistry, natural elements – but it was a wonderful and exciting way to discover the natural world: the essence of plants, the potency of earth matter, the healing power of touch.
For me, it was an intriguing mystery. A mystery waiting to be solved.
Years later, while attending a post graduate course in Holistic Aromatherapy, I began putting all those pieces together. I understood that all of us were the sum total of what we inherent, what we think about and what we eat and those became my foundational tenets …the cornerstones of ‘my truth and my path.’
That was more than forty years ago and I am still on that path, putting pieces together, still very much in love with the work I do.
ASTECC speaks to our potential as practitioners and as an industry.
Equal parts art and science It is a path and a journey…but never a destination.
We keep learning and growing.
That’s our nature.

“Anne Bramham is one of the shining lights of the spa world. Her expertise, authenticity and commitment is unlike anybody else’s. She is a very important part of what we do.”James Bermingham
To touch, empower, nurture and inspire.
To communicate thru touch and natural elements, the life affirming potential of spa’s organic gifts.
With our clients, the practitioners we engage and the guests we serve, we live these values:
– Creating an environment of trust and transparency rooted in integrity and respect.
– Mindful of the body’s terrain and the health of our planet, we recognize our elemental connection.
