Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy helps to restore harmony of mind, body and spirit.

 

It works with the pure properties of plants, using their essential oils to help improve both physical and emotional well-being.  Aromatherapy oils can be used in a variety of ways—in the bath, in inhalations and in massage.

 

Aromatherapy massage

 

Aromatherapy is most effective when used with a therapeutic massage.  The essential oils are absorbed through the skin and through smell into the bloodstream where their restorative and healing properties begin to work, resulting in a positive state of health and well being.  Oils are chosen for their different therapeutic properties and are chosen for each person.  Aromatherapy may be particularly useful for :

 

  • Improving blood and lymph circulation
  • Increasing energy levels
  • The relief of stress and to aid  relaxation
  • Boosting the immune system
  • Relieving the symptoms of colds, aches and pains
  • PMS, menopausal symptoms
  • Digestive disorders
  • Skin problems
  • Insomnia
  • A general sense of well-being

 

A full aromatherapy massage usually lasts for about 75 minutes.  During the treatment you are covered with towels to ensure your modesty.  Following a consultation, essential oils are blended with a massage oil, such as sweet almond oil, and are applied using deep or relaxing massage movements as appropriate.
