Uplifting and refreshing aromatherapy massage

Aromatherapy is the controlled use of essential oils by different methods, e.g. massage, compression, inhalation or baths, to enhance the wellbeing of the mind, body and spirit. It uses pure essences extracted from flowers and plants which may have a therapeutic effect in preventing problems and treating common ailments. The essential oils have many different properties and, as research has shown, can be stimulants, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, calming, soothing and uplifting. An aromatherapy massage may have the ability to influence the emotions and help physical symptoms and a special blend of essential oils will be agreed with you to address symptoms or mood on that day. The massage will then begin with all parts of the body not being worked on covered by a towel.

How it can help: An aromatherapy massage is a wonderfully soothing and relaxing treatment and an ideal antidote to stress related conditions. Concentrating on long strokes which move in sequence over the body it can leave the receiver feeling calm, relaxed and refreshed. Specific oils may help with particular ailments including muscle aches, skin problems, indigestion, asthma, insomnia, anxiety and depression. It is recommended that you leave the oils on overnight, if possible, to gain the maximum benefits from the therapeutic properties of the oils.
