Why choose aromatherapy?

Every treatment is different – in my treatments I draw from a variety of massage techniques and I do not use pre-blended oils. I create a bespoke synergistic blend from up to 71 different essential oils to suit each individual client’s physical and physiological needs on the day

Why choose massage?

Touch is one of the most crucial, yet often underrated, of the senses – all ages benefit from human touch. Massage has been shown to benefit the body on a number of levels because it relaxes and revitalises a weary or ailing body through a reassuring and caring touch. Many studies have proven that massage promotes state of mind and mood-altering serotonin and endorphins.  Endorphins are chemicals that affect development in children, as well as, improving emotional and physical well-being in adults. In addition, a massage can be an effective treatment for a range of physical problems and a wonderfully relaxing experience.

What should I expect in a treatment?

You have the choice of having a full body massage, which includes the back, neck and shoulders, legs and feet, arms and hands, abdomen and face or just a one of the selection. You will remove necessary clothing, lie down and the oils will be applied to your skin through massage. Towels will cover areas not being massaged. Bolsters and pillows will be used to make you as comfortable as possible.

How often should I have treatments?

It’s up to you how frequently you want to have treatments. Some individuals prefer a weekly massage and others a monthly one, or it may be a one off treat for a birthday. I will make a recommendation for a treatment plan in all cases and especially where there are on-going injuries and you have been referred by your doctor. There is no obligation.

How can aromatherapy help with injuries?

Essential oils are natural healing products. Many over-the-counter remedies for injuries, aches and pains are based on natural plant components (chemical constituents) and are synthetic copies. These copies often contain mineral oils which deprive the muscles and body of vital nutrients. Not good news for the sports pro, or amateur!

“In actuality, the oils exert much of their therapeutic effect through their pharmacological properties and their small molecular size, making them one of the few therapeutic agents to easily penetrate the bodily tissues.” -Dr. (rer. nat.) Kurt Schnaubelt, Director of the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy
