Aromatherapy combines the beneficial effects of a light massage with the delightful aroma of essential oils.
It is a wonderful occasional indulgence but can also be used to treat a very wide range of ailments.
Each plant oil has particular actions and benefits we can make use of as they also have an affinity with specific organs or areas of the body.
After a detailed, confidential consultation a synergy of oils is chosen to treat your particular problem. At each visit progress will be assessed and new oils selected.
The essential oils are diluted with a 'carrier' oil and smoothed onto the skin using long gentle strokes and while you deeply relax, the oils find their way to their target area to carry out their beneficial actions.
As well as having useful physical effects essential oils also have mood and emotion enhancing capabilities. They can profoundly affect our hormones - the chemical messengers for all the body systems - which get unbalanced when we get stressed!
This is how this very enjoyable treatment system gently brings back harmony, health and vitality.
Aromatherapy treatment for a specific problem needs to be carried out weekly, between 4 to 6 treatments are usually recommended.
I may also offer you oils to use at home in the bath or shower which will help to support your treatment between sessions.
