When combined with essential oils in HOLISTIC AROMATHERAPY TREATMENT, the benefits of holistic massage are multiplied many times over.
Essential oils – distilled from fresh plant material – have the capacity to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms as well as having specific therapeutic properties unique to each plant.
For thousands of years plant substances have been used to heal and nurture both the body and the mind. Today, in our increasingly hectic lives, the holistic use of essential oils combined with therapeutic massage can play a part in alleviating a wide range of physical and emotional problems and is an excellent way of reducing stress, thus promoting and maintaining health and well being and enhancing our lives.
Taking an individual’s overall health into consideration, a skilled Aromatherapist will be able to select an oil or blend of oils uniquely appropriate to their needs at the point in time of their treatment.
We adopt a holistic approach to aromatherapy: taking into account such aspects as the overall health and well-being as well as the physical picture, we create blends of essential oils and base oils specifically tailored to each individual treatment
The selected oils will be used in a massage treatment, which may be entirely relaxing or may also address specific musculoskeletal problems using sports massage techniques if this is needed.
