Welcome to Les Âmes Fleurs!
By Sonia Blondeau, author
This book tells the story of Catherine Maranzana, a graduate nurse who initiated the entry of aromatherapy into the medical structures of Civil Hospitals in Colmar, in France, on scientific bases and under the control of hospital medical authorities and academics. The book relates the origins of Catherine, while, from her childhood, she was raised in the depths of a hamlet by her great-grandfather which teaches her the love of nature and the power of plants, and watches over on She until she became a hospital nurse with cancer patients. She tells how she fought to obtain the right to introduce treatment from aromatherapy to relieve patients, in addition to conventional medical therapy. These are new clinical applications. The subject is chanted by numerous testimonies and practical examples, authentic and experienced and punctuated by very useful information in the use of family aromatherapy. The book will interest the general public as much (for testimonies) and enthusiasts of family aromatherapy (for the practical part), as health professionals who are increasingly opening up to "complementary" medical methods. Always active, Catherine Maranzana is one of the first health professionals to officially use, since 2009, aromatherapy in her medical and scientific practice in the hospital. Holder of several prizes for her work on clinical scientific aromatherapy in hospital, including the prestigious "Annual Prize of the Gattefossé Foundation" in 2015, she was a teacher at the Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Strasbourg (France) and practitioner from cabinet to olfactotherapy.
