Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy and Essential Oils  have been used for thousands of years with the aim of improving a person's health and wellbeing.

Aromatherapy can:

  • Calm and relax.
  • De-stress.
  • Soothe and balance.
  • Stimulate and refresh.
  • Energise and uplift.
  • Help maintain healthy joints and muscles.
  • Revive both mind and body.
  • Be part of maintaining  health and wellbeing.

 

Each essential oil has its own character and aroma with a variety of properties and benefits which are unique to itself. I am trained to discuss and mix these oils to find the perfect blend for what you need at this moment.

Massage is one of the best ways to enjoy Aromatherapy because you not only receive the therapeutic properties of the essential oils, but you also get the  benefits of the massage itself. The essential oils are absorbed through the skin and when brought together with the revitalising effects of Massage, stimulate all of the organs in the body, the skin, muscles, nerves and glands. The increased circulation of the blood and lymph flow also assists with the clearing away of body toxins.

The oils are also absorbed through the nose and sense of smell. There are approximately 10 million smell receptors located at the top of the nasal cavity and are directly connected to the part of the brain called the Limbic System, which helps to control heart rate, blood pressure and emotional responses. Smell can trigger powerful emotional responses which can both calm, relax or energise and stimulate. 

What to expect:

On your first visit I will ask some general questions about medical history, lifestyle and health but it is important I know:

  • If you are or think you might be pregnant
  • If you have any medical conditions and are receiving any treatment or medication
  • If you have recently had an injury or operation
  • If you are allergic to anything, particularly skin allergies
  • If have any broken skin, sores or rashes
  • If you have a fever or infection
  • if there is a scent/smell you do not like

     

    Avoid alcohol both before and after the treatment and drink plenty of water or herbal teas afterwards . Try to allow some time to wind down and enjoy the therapeutic effects of the Aromatherapy massage treatment.

    Please do not bath or shower for 6 to 8 hours after the treatment or use other products on the skin. This gives the oils time to penetrate the skin.

    Do not sunbathe, or use sunbeds for 24 hours as some oils are phototoxic and can make the skin sensitive to burning.
