Aromatherapy Massage

using only the purest organic essential oils

Aromatherapy is the art of blending natural plant derived essential oils to help restore health and balance to the body. An aromatherapy massage is a gentle, therapeutic massage that triggers the body's natural healing systems and is a truly holistic treatment that works on a person's physical, emotional and spiritual bodies.

The pure essence of aromatic plant oils - known as essential oils - have been used for more than 8000 years for their healing, cleansing and mood enhancing properties as well as for the pleasure of there fragrances. There are records of the ancient Egyptions and Greeks using plants and their aromatic oil for the treatment of illness and for ceremonial and religious purposes.

Essential oils can be used in many ways including topically to the skin via massage, inhalation, compresses and aromatic baths. As the skin is the largest surface area for the application of essential oils, it represents the most common way for absorbing essential oils into the bloodstream for therapeutic effect and this is done through massage.

Essential oils consist of tiny aromatic molecules that are readily absorbed via the skin. These therapeutic constituents next enter the bloodstream and are carried around the body where they can deliver their beneficial healing properties to the appropriate places. Whilst breathing, they enter the lungs and hit the senses, emotional and mental  parts of the brain via the nose and smell. Essential oils also work on a cellular level.

Aromatherapy oils can help prevent illness and alleviate symptoms and each seperate oil has a huge list of  medicinal properties. Because they are highly concentrated, only a small quantity of essential oil is required to bring about results. The art of aromatherapy lies in selecting and blending pure organic essential oils for their medicinal properties, which gives a unique individual treatment that will help each person and their therapeutic needs.

Maintaining our levels of health is the most important thing we can do, for without it we have nothing. The interactions and relationships with ourselves and others depend entirely on this and will influence our lives and everything we do. Aromatherapy can help to keep our physical, emotional and mental selves in a balanced and healthy state of being. Scientists and doctors have known for a long time that negative and positive emotions can change the complex chemistry of our bodies, and these changes can have a negative or positive effect on the immune system and all aspects of our health. The aim is to maintain balance in our health, which will prevent future illness and disharmony in the physical and emotional self.

What to expect from an aromatherapy treatment

When doing an aromatherapy treatment, I will take into account a person's medical history, emotional condition, general health and lifestyle, before planning a course of treatment. I will first take a medical consultation and leave you to undress and lay down, you will be covered with towels and at no point during the treatment will you be undignified. I will then select and blend an appropriate group of oils to use and offer them for you to smell.

An aromatherapy treatment takes one hour but longer treatments can be arranged. I only use the purest organic essential oils for aromatherapy treatments. Aromatherapy massage is a gentle massage but essential oils can be used alongside any treatment on request.

Ear acupuncture can be used together with  aromatherapy massage.

Sometimes I may ask you to talk to your GP before arranging a treatment. Always make sure that you avoid alcohol for at least 5 hours before a treatment. Drink lots of water after a treatment as this will help with the removal of toxins.
