Aromatherapy aims to treat the whole person by helping to restore the harmony of mind, body and spirit. It works with the pure properties of plants, using their essential oils in a natural, complementary therapy which is said to help improve both physical and emotional well-being. It is often used in therapeutic massage (aromatherapy massage) with the benefit of relaxing or uplifting fragrances.
The full body aromatherapy massage lasts for 75 minutes, but if you have less time, there are 45 and 60 minute options. Allow approximately 10-15 minutes on top of these times to allow time for dressing/undressing and after care advice.
For your privacy, the therapist will leave the room while you undress and undress. If you need assistance, a large towel can be used to ensure your modesty.
I have an extensive range of essential oils and each of these have different therapeutic properties. There are plenty of aromas to choose from – as many oils share similar properties. After a full consultation, a number of essential oils are selected to suit your individual needs. These oils are then blended with a vegetable oil – known as a carrier oil, before being applied to the skin.
This therapy is suitable for most adults but there are certain conditions where you should avoid aromatherapy. To ensure the well-being of clients, all treatments begin with a consultation to enable me to make sure aromatherapy is right for you. In some instances your GP’s permission may be required before treatments can commence. Terms and conditions
