Aromatherapy is a massage treatment providing you with all the benefits of massage enhanced with the addition of essential oils.
What are essential oils?
Essential oils are highly concentrated oils extracted from plants. Essential oils affect the body in a number of ways
- absorbed into the skin when massaged on
- absorbed through the lungs when the molecules are inhaled
- the aromas stimulate certain areas of the brain triggering certain associations
I use only top quality essential oils from environmentally conscious suppliers and none of the products used are ever tested on animals.
During the consultation I create a shortlist of suitable oils based on your preferences and what conditions are to be treated. For example Black Pepper is useful for tight muscles and is very stimulating. Eucalyptus is excellent for relieving symptoms of sinus congestion. Lavender is excellent to promote relaxation.
Once we have selected some essential oils they are blended with a carrier oil. Next the oils are massaged onto the body using a variety of techniques.
Aromatherapy massage is traditionally very light and gentle however as I am trained in a number of massage techniques I can adapt the treatment to suit you. For example I can use stronger or deeper pressure if you prefer.
