Based in Austin, TX, Deli Aroma grew from the insecurities and pain owner Fai Chan faced while fighting debilitating acne scars. Inspired from the results of treatment she had been using, she grew passionate about aromatherapy and its emotional/physical healing effects. “I was so determined to heal completely because I needed to go forward and pursue my dream,” she says. “I felt like I finally woke up. I learned aromatherapy because I wanted to create a future for myself. I developed a passion for it because I learned how effective it was in healing emotional issues. I gradually found that I had the talent to formulate the right products and essential oils to help people.”
Fai became a clinical member (and later a board member) of the world renowned Aromatherapy Association AIA (Alliance of International Aromatherapists). She counts among her mentors Andre Butje, and Gabriel Mojay, whose class on emotional issues and aromatherapy through the use of acupoints marked a turning point for her. Through this course, she refined her expertise and felt confident in her ability to handle cases with complicated emotional issues.
Based on a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) framework, with the synergistic effects of combining a therapeutic approach with chemistry, Fai’s remedies have proven very effective. “I take joy in knowing my clients personally, and am devoted to giving them personalized care,” she says. “I ask a lot of upfront questions and put a lot of time and effort into doing follow-ups as well. As a therapist, it’s always a joy to help people become free of constraints, free of restraints and free of limitations. People are not slaves to their ailments, physical or mental.”
