The Treatment Room
Pivotal to the plan for the A.S APOTHECARY shop was the decision to bring therapists to the space who would offer our clients the opportunity to both experience our products through massage and facials and also to have access to excellent wellbeing therapists who could improve health.
To this end we are delighted to introduce you to each of them:

Acupuncture First appointment £60 | Follow-up appointments £45 Facial rejuvenation (cosmetic acupuncture) £130 1.5 hour treatment - 12 treatments recommended
I have been specialising in women’s health, fertility, pregnancy and post-birth issues for 9 years. I use an integrative approach to health and well-being, using Acupuncture, Tuina ('twee-na' - Chinese massage therapy) as well as lifestyle and dietary advice in order to treat you as a whole, on a physical emotional and mental level. Acupuncture views the person as a landscape, mapping the mind and body: taking into account seemingly unrelated symptoms, health history and general constitution to create an in-depth Chinese Medicine pattern diagnosis and bespoke treatment plan - targeting the root of the problem whilst addressing the branch symptoms. Acupuncture is a wonderful tool for removing these ingrained patterns layer by layer bringing your body back into alignment and health.
Facial Rejuvenation is a gentle and natural anti-aging practice to enhance beauty and wellbeing. The treatment is used to encourage collagen production, soften lines and wrinkles, lift sagging, increase firmness and tone. Acupuncture also treats your bodies internal imbalances leaving you feeling completely rejuvenated and revitalised

Massage & Healing with Flowers 90 minutes | £75
Come for a beautiful healing massage that incorporates the Mexican traditions of using flowers over the body to bring positivity and return harmony. I offer a full body deep tissue massage using fresh flowers, flower oils and the organic wild crafted products from A.S Apothecary, which will bring warmth and energy, lightness and strength to your whole being. In addition I work with the flower essences and your treatment will incorporate finding a flower remedy specific to your needs right now. I have worked with the Mexican healing traditions for 14 years, beautiful strong healing methods with a deep connection to nature. I'm also an art therapist specialising in working with flowers and plants.
Bring a bunch of flowers you feel drawn to, and a white candle for your treatment.
TINA DEUBERT | 01273 477755
Bowen Therapy £50 | hour Half hour de-stress session £30
As well as Nutritional Therapy, which I practice at Tina's Kitchen, I am a Bowen Therapist. Bowen is a gentle, deeply relaxing treatment which uses rolling movements over places where tension builds up in the body. Think of a guitar - when a string is plucked the vibration travels along the string and into the body of the guitar itself. I see Bowen acting in a similar way - small, apparently insignificant moves travelling along muscles, tendons and connective tissue, releasing tension as it goes. The effects of Bowen are wide reaching - from a profound sense of relaxation and calm, to an easing of pain and a balancing of emotions and energy.
My personal experience of Bowen began when I had a slipped disc which had affected my walking for over three months, kept me in constant pain and consequent low mood. I genuinely thought I would never be able to do many things again. The most stunning effect of my first treatment was that I walked out of the room feeling and believing that I WOULD get better! My low mood started to lift and I felt a spring in my step. The treatment massively helped my pain and I would say was the cause of my complete recovery over time, and it also seemed to have an effect on my hormones (PMS vanished), my appetite (less sugar, wheat, caffeine cravings) and my overall sense of wellbeing.

Homeopathy One hour consultation £65 | Follow-up appointments £45
I am a woman of the woods, in love with nature, especially plants and trees. I love to dance and climb and to swim in wild places. I also love literature and film, especially animation. Homeopathy has been a lifelong passion for me, curing me of a life-limiting illness when I was a teenager and inspiring me to take seriously alternative medicines and healing naturally. I practice from home, as well as at A.S. APOTHECARY, and I am also a Consultant Homeopath at Helios Pharmacy in Tunbridge Wells. I work with people, and animals, from all walks of life including family groups. I work integrally, combining my practice of homeopathy with nutritional and dietary support, as well as using flower essences and herbal tinctures to support recovery. I have been a practicing buddhist most of my adult life and I think my friends would say that I am kind, insightful and determined, as well as both fun and serious in equal measure. I live in Lewes, have four children, like to cook and to relax in front of a fire with a good book or a radio play. My current ambition is to be a better gardner, and to keep responding creatively to the people and experiences that life brings my way. I studied Modern Languages at Oxford, went on to do an MA in Human Rights but after a brief misguided foray into International Relations, I trained in Contemporary Dance and then became a dance teacher for most of my career before training in homeopathy at South Downs School in Chichester. In my spare time, I run Rites of Passage Camps in Sussex woodlands for teenage girls. I look forward to welcoming you to the practice space at Amanda's Apothecary in Lewes.

Facials Holistic 60 minute Facial using A.S. APOTHECARY products – £65
I am a holistic therapist and ‘green’ makeup artist offering natural organic facials, massage and make-up services. I’ve been working as a makeup artist in fashion and weddings for the past seven years. I am passionate about wellness and using natural, safe products with beautiful, quality ingredients which are free from toxins. I pride myself on having a calm, compassionate personality and a good listening ear, I really enjoy the element of making people feel happy and confident. I’m so grateful to do the thing I love, it doesn’t really feel like work at all!. Facials are my favourite treatment because they have so many benefits. They’re obviously brilliant for making your skin look great but they’re also incredibly relaxing and great for relieving stress. I believe that beauty is something that comes from the inside out. With this in mind, I approach my treatments with a holistic outlook and take into account the whole picture to help you achieve a natural, radiant glow and a balanced lifestyle. When I’m not working I love going for long walks in the countryside or having a ridiculously long bath!

Hot Stone Massage - £65/hour. Holistic Massage - £60/hour £75/90 minutes
I have been practising Holistic Massage since qualifying in 2001 with The College of Classical Massage, Brighton. I love to offer therapeutic massage to aid physical and emotional wellbeing and I have spent many years supporting people through touch on a variety of levels. I have worked at therapy centres in Brighton and Lewes, as well as at festivals, including the healing field at Glastonbury. I also practised massage at the Brighton Cancer Support Group and the Sussex MS Centre, Southwick. It was at a festival in the Ashdown Forest that I received my first Hot Stone Massage, which I absolutely loved and so I trained as a Hot Stones Fusion Massage therapist with Jing Advanced Massage and Training, Brighton, qualifying in 2004. This exquisite form of massage uses heated basalt stones to help ease tension and pain and also helps give a profound sense of well being, with the combination of heat, oil and touch. I am delighted to be able to use organic massage oil in my treatments, made by the A.S. APOTHECARY distillery team.

Holistic Massage, Reflexology, Zone Therapy, Crystal Therapy, Metamorphic Technique - £60/hour £75/90 minutes
I've been a holistic bodyworker for around 15 years. I trained extensively and qualified as a Spiritual Healer initially as a strong and ever developing foundation therapy and compliment to the physical therapies I offer. Massage Therapy and Reflexology/Zone Therapy soon followed as a more hands-on therapy route. Both of these physical therapies can be done anywhere on the body as the body has mirroring maps that can be accessed where needed. For instance Reflexology/Zone Therapy can be done on the feet, hands or face/head areas with a similar outcome and effect.
I see every body massage/ therapy as a very individual process and every session compliments the needs of the body at that moment. My approach has always involved a deep listening to how much the body needs at that time and a trusting of the body's own wisdom.
I have been trained to offer the Metamorphic Technique which is a very gentle and lighter touch technique. This is a gentle rubbing of the hands feet and head and encourages a deep "movement" to occur.
I can offer small "taster" treatments of this for those who are interested to discover more.

Aromatherapy Massage Full body aromatherapy massage using A.S. APOTHECARY products - £60/hour £75/90 minutes
I offer a deeply rejuvenating 90 minute full body Aromatherapy Massage treatment using ethically sourced organic and wild crafted essential oils. Therapeutic aromatherapy massage combines the profound benefit and nourishment of touch and therapeutic effect of the essential oils. I am fascinated with the unconscious transformative power of smell and deeply respect the power of essentials oils. I believe they can be understood more fully as ‘molecules of connection’, bridging our relationship between the natural world and the sensuality of being human. In a respectful, intimate and safe space I offer you the chance to pause and reconnect with your body and inner stillness. I work alongside the rich intelligence of the body, with a flowing rhythmic massage that brings balance to your whole being. I am also an advanced certified specialist in aromatherapy in pregnancy and menopause, and can help to a support a woman’s journey from conception to birth as well as easing the impact of hormonal changes in a woman’s later life cycles and seasons. I graduated from the widely respected Institute of Traditional Herbal Medicine and Aromatherapy (ITHMA, Regents University, London) in 2010, and later worked as a practitioner educator. I am a member of International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists. My integrated approach to wellbeing is strongly informed by my teaching practice in the therapeutic healing modalities of Aromatherapy, Massage, Hatha Yoga and my personal practise of 5Rhythms and movement meditation. I love walking my Lurcher dog Peggy Sioux along the coastal paths of the South Downs and building dens with my son.
