WHAT IS AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE?

Aromatherapy is a form of massage therapy which uses the medicinal properties found in essential oils derived from plants.  Aromatherapy massage uses only the aromas extracted from plants and distilled into essential oil which possess a multitude of therapeutic uses. 

 

Uses can be physically, mentally and emotionally beneficial.

 

Typically aromatherapy massage techniques are slow and rhythmic. Ideal for promoting a state of deep relaxation.

HISTORY OF AROMATHERAPY

Aromatic plants and oils have been used for thousands of years.  Literature in both China and India dating from more than 2000 years ago discuss their therapeutic application.  Later evidence demonstrates extensive usage in many ancient cultures - Egypt, Greece, Persia and Rome.  

 

This holistic therapy enhances the body’s own healing ability and inspires the body, mind and spirit to achieve a perfect balance.

Each essential oil interacts with the body’s chemistry after being absorbed during your massage.  This, in turn, provides the therapeutic properties of the oils to the body thereby enhancing mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.

 

Specific oils are selected carefully for you following a detailed consultation.  These are added to the carrier oil (grapeseed or avocado for example) and used for your massage treatment. 

 

Dietary and Lifestyle advice may be given. Benefits of regular treatment are cumulative and preventative.

HOW CAN AROMATHERAPY BENEFIT ME?

TENSION

Whether mental or physical, we all suffer from it - given our 24/7 lifestyles and our overuse of technology.  Massage is brilliant at relieving tight muscles and promoting relaxation. It all helps to get a good night’s sleep. 

JOINT/MUSCLE PAIN

Whether we live a sedentary lifestyle, sit at a screen or drive a lot - poor posture is common.  Sore neck, shoulders and back are often ignored. Keeping a regular preventative massage in your life will make a huge difference to your wellbeing.

FLEXIBILITY

Aromatherapy stimulates blood and lymph circulation.  This nourishes your muscles and joint and removes unwanted toxins and fluids.  Regular use makes you feel brighter and more supple. Oils selected can be either relaxing or stimulating.

SLEEPING & RELAXATION

Slow rhythmic strokes bring about a relaxing semi-hypnotic feeling that has a more favourable effect on the nervous system than tranquilizers and sleeping pills - and have none of the detrimental side effects.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHO WOULD BENEFIT?

Anyone, young or old, active and inactive would benefit as it offers many benefits physically, mentally and emotionally, irrespective of your current condition.

IS AROMATHERAPY RELAXING?

Typically, yes.  You may want more stimulating oils which can be energising in their effect.  You decide the degree of pressure you want and this dictates how relaxing or energising you find your treatment.  

IS AROMATHERAPY SAFE?

Certain oils would be avoided to suit the condition and temperament of the client.  This will be identified during your consultation. For example, if you are pregnant, suffer from high blood pressure or have epilepsy it is important that you tell your practitioner.
