Frequently Asked Questions
Your Questions, Answered
What should I expect from my first session?
Your inital visit we will spend getting to know each other. It is very important that your therapist and yourself understand what you are looking for support with. We will review your health and medical history, which includes illnesses, injuries, and allergies., You do not need to “bare your soul” to her, but you should let her know the kind of relief you are asking and whether you are on medications or not.
After the chat, we will decide on the best form of treatment you will receive based on your initial conversation or from the form you are asked to fill out. She will then discuss to you what the treatment she feels that is best suited for you.
How will I feel after experiencing aromatherapy?
Everyone is different. This is why we offer a personalized wellness scan to review which essential oils your body would benefit from.
At the very least, coming away from an aromatherapy session, you can expect to feel more relaxed than you were before the session. The essential oils used in our sessions do have a frequency that will help soothe achy muscles, minds and spirits.
Aromatherapy is a gentle, non-invasive form of holistic therapy you will most likely thoroughly enjoy.
Do you help treat terminal or chronic illness?
Essential Oils are very volatile compounds that have many benefits to ailments of any type. For centuries these essential oils have been studied by many physicians and scientists to provide proof of the effectiveness of each. Based on our clients, essential oils can help you to cope by reducing symptoms such as pain, stress and anxiety.
Do you diagnose?
As a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist, we never diagnose. With aromatherapy we are not trying to replace
medical attention, just to compliment it.

Covid-19 Safety Measures
What are our clinic precautions?
CLEANING AND SANITIZING: I am very aware of all areas that require sanitizing before and after any client appointment. I also follow within the scope of what Health Canada approved for COVID-19 to use around high touch surface areas.
Hand washing is a must. Masks will be worn the entire duration of the service.
SCREENING: Clients will need to complete a screening 24-48 hours prior to any services booked. I only see a maximum of 2 - 3 clients per day to minimize the clinic use during high pandemic numbers.
"Okay! Where to begin... thank you Cedars Wellness Clinic / Joyce Ioannou ... from the day I met her she has a presents so inviting it makes you have to know her! And her clinic just makes you feel right at home and the smells of her aromatherapy just put you into such a relaxing state. The vibes are pure and you feel at ease being there. I've been seeing Joyce now for 3 weeks or so, and since seeing her I'm on my path to good health. And I feel I've found the perfect person to help me get there. Last week I ended up in the hospital with Trigeminal Neuralgia, and right away Joyce was there talking me through it, and MADE sure I came to see her when I returned home. The care she has for people truly is remarkable, I've never met someone in health care who cares as much as she does. I started having continuous ticks and twitches in my face/around my eye that began to cause me a lot of discomfort and tightness and of course she did her magic last night and it has already subsided incredibly. I was shocked that after 15 minutes or so of her continually working on the nerves that it relaxed my face to the point it only twitches every so often now! It's so much more tolerable after seeing her. Obviously it's not gone and there is no way of physically eliminating it, but to have the relief without taking prescription drugs that are very hard on your body is just amazing to me, I do not even take Advil so to have a natural way of reducing the pain and everything else that has come with what's going on with me health wise I am so bless and beyond thrilled to be in Joyce's care! Thank you so much, your truly amazing.........amazing foot soaks and a reflexology appointment. If you haven't been I would 100% recommend even just a consultation with her! She discovers things you'd be surprised about. Thanks Joyce, see you tomorrow!"
