Following a career in education, Mary Dalgleish qualified as an aromatherapist at the Tisserand Institute of Holistic Aromatherapy in 1999 and later worked there as a tutor of anatomy and physiology, as well as a student mentor. Her aromatherapy studies sparked an interest in the holistic approach to health and well-being and she subsequently completed a variety of further training courses including reflexology, Indian head massage, natural face lift massage, Ayurvedic massage, ear candling and numerous CPD courses.

Having experienced the benefits of holistic therapies and healthy lifestyle choices in improving and maintaining her own health and well-being, Mary has always loved to share her passion for holistic therapies and healthy living with her clients and students. 

Mary holds a master's degree in education and has taught anatomy and physiology on complementary therapy courses for over 20 years. She has also taught continuing professional development courses in various massage modalities including natural face lift massage, Indian head massage, Ayurvedic facelift massage and Ayurvedic foot massage, and was a Commended Tutor of the Year in the FHT’s 2012 Excellence in Education Awards.

Mary has co-authored three books: ‘Indian Head Massage – the Essential Guide’; ‘Ear Candling – the Essential Guide’; and “KNOW YOUR BODY – The Essential Guide to Human Anatomy and Physiology” (book & workbook) in November 2020. She ran a busy private therapy practice in southwest London from 1999 to 2020 before moving to the Cotswolds in January 2021.  

Mary’s favourite quote is ‘Find a job that you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life’ - she vowed that one day she would feel this way about her work and can now honestly say that she does!

Mary is proud to be a member and senior fellow of the FHT and is honoured to represent the interests of holistic therapists as Vice President of the FHT's International Council of Holistic Therapists (ICHT).
