Massage: Aromatherapy & More
Aromatherapy literally means a treatment using scents. It has been around for thousands of years and Hippocrates is said to have been a fan! It is perhaps the most popular complementary therapy and as such is often seen working alongside traditional medicine in hospitals and care homes. Essential oils are used which are derived from plants/flowers/fruits and are always 100% natural. The oils can then be inhaled, or a few drops added to a bath or perhaps most commonly used during massage.
Our full range of massage styles available includes:
- Deep Tissue, Sports & Remedial Massage
- Hot Stone Massage
- Indian Head Massage
- Japanese Face Massage
What does an Aromatherapy session involve?
Your Aromatherapist will ask you some questions about your general health and well-being in order to decide which oils will be right for you. Your chosen essential oils will be blended with a base or carrier oil so that they are safe to use on the skin. The process of massaging the oils works on many levels, you have the beneficial effects of a massage whilst the therapeutic essential oils do their work and are absorbed by the body. The oils can also stimulate the sense of smell which may aid relaxation or perk you up accordingly.
Who would benefit from an Aromatherapy massage?
Aromatherapy is a most enjoyable treatment and may be enjoyed by all. Most experience a sense of well-being and it may be very comforting and reassuring. In this way it is a good stress buster and may help restore balance in body and mind. Each oil has its own special properties; eucalyptus for example is good for when you are run-down, or have a cold and lavender is very calming and relaxing, which in medical trials has even been known to lower blood pressure. It is also a safe treatment suitable for all ages, helping to enhance the quality of your life.
