Emily Constantinidi

Emily holds a diploma in Essential Oil Science from Neal’s Yard Courses and is an Aromatherapist, registered with the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (IFPA).  She completed her training, along with training as a Dien Chan Zone Operator (a Facial Reflexology technique), while working for an artist, coordinating sculpture production and international exhibitions.  Aromatherapy continues to shift her life towards a different balance; making time and space for a more intuitive, present, grounded experience, after over a decade in the dynamic and exhilarating contemporary art world.

A De Beauvoir resident for over nine years, Emily is originally from Somerset and has always felt a deep connection to nature, and remembers exploring the world through aroma since early childhood.  Following a fascination of how things work, she embarked on a science education and holds a Master of Pharmacy.  However, the career path beyond wasn’t the right fit and she returned to study, and then work, in the arts.

Growing up, Emily first came into contact with holistic therapies in her early teens when struggling to overcome illness while competing in rowing at a high level.  She is hugely grateful for the support they offered her then, and since.  With her personal experience, combined with time within the NHS during her Pharmacy training, she has a strong sense of how a holistic approach can complement mainstream, allopathic care.

Emily is passionate about providing support for modern life; for those living in such a busy, intense – and sometimes disconnected – city as London.  Where appropriate, she works with individual clients to empower them with their own self-care beyond the therapeutic setting.  This may include the offer of simple rituals using personal blends of essential oils at home or on the go.  In the case of DCZ Facial Reflexology treatments, a personal, annotated map is drawn up at the end of each session to allow each client to continue at home, working over zones of the face with a fingertip or knuckle, to stimulate reflex points of a particular body system daily (for ideally 21 days), so continuing to promote balance and health beyond the one-to-one session.

Therapy offered –

Initial Aromatherapy sessions are 90 minutes and include a consultation (before bespoke blending and hands on treatment).  Follow up treatments of 60 or 90 minutes are available.  All pregnancy massage sessions are 90 minutes.

Bespoke essential oil blending

"Acupuncture during pregnancy was amazing… each trimester is a different… during the first I needed energy and help with the sickness, during the second I had a rash, during the third I was suffering from pelvic problems and insomnia and the extra weight... the personal, friendly and detailed individual approach was so beneficial to me. I feel like it paid a huge part in my well-being over the 9 months… thank you, Amelia.”

I had been suffering from a severe and unexplained break out of hives for over two weeks, when a friend recommended Stepping Stones to me. The hives had been so bad that they covered my face and body and I had been back and forth to the doctors with no luck; none of the medication they gave me worked and it was getting worse. When I came to Stepping Stones I had never had acupuncture before and didn't know what to expect. But the space was clean and relaxing and Amelia was very kind and welcoming and put me at ease straight away. After just one session at the multi-bed clinic the hives went down 50% by the following day, and then continued to consistently fade away over the next two days. I then had one more session, and the following day they were completely gone! I feel so happy and grateful to have found Stepping Stones and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Thanks so much Amelia.

I came to Stepping Stones after a long period of sleeplessness and general fatigue. After one session I already feel significantly energised and rejuvenated - my skin is glowing and I have slept better than I have in weeks! The clinic is serene and comfortable and the perfect place to enjoy treatment. I would highly recommend incorportating acupuncture at Stepping Stones into any plan to live a happy and healthy life

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all for the treatment (and warm welcomes and cups of tea) you've given me over the last few months.

I think that as is the case with many symptoms unease, brought about due to imbalances in the body, the signs and symptoms appear gradually and over a period of time, and likewise do not just tend disappear over night. Having said that I feel that the course of acupuncture I've received has been of great benefit, and there are subtle improvements and changes in my general wellbeing which I can say the treatment, at the very least, played some part in bringing about.

I was first attracted to the Stepping Stones project when my husband found the card in the church. The very cleverly designed card was telling me of affordable acupuncture, with the added bonus of being very near to my home. When I first phoned for an appointment I felt encouraged by the friendly voice of Amelia.

On my first visit Stacey interviewed me most sympathetically, I immediately felt safe. Although the space is rather small they create a comfortable atmosphere, the room is warm and privacy is always maintained with the use of towels and screens.

I have had many treatments, they are always helpful, and it is so nice to be able to complain about pain knowing they will be understanding and can offer relief. Once the needles are in place, privacy and comfort is ensured, the wonderful warming lamp and the quiet allows for deep relaxation.

I am happy to recommend Stepping Stones to anyone, I have already informed several friends.

I’d thought about acupuncture before, but had never been able to afford it. My experience here has been very positive – it’s inclusive and relaxed. The treatments are enjoyable and, over time, the process has made a definite difference in my life. The diet and lifestyle advice, which goes with the acupuncture itself, would also have been unavailable elsewhere, and support with my nutrition in particular has been really good in helping me make changes beyond the treatments.
