Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being, it can be the trigger for memories or emotions.

The inhaled aroma from these "essential" oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing.  A form of alternative medicine, aromatherapy is gaining momentum.  It is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function.  There are a wide number of essential oils available, each with its own healing properties. 

 

How Does it work? 

"An aromatherapy blend can be thought of as a "symphony in scent". Essential oils like Lemon, Tangerine and Bergamot supply ephemeral "top notes" similar to the top notes created by flutes, violin, or silver bells. Cedarwood and Sandalwood essential oils are deep and resonant.  They can supply the "base note" quality, similar to base notes supplied by the base, drum, tuba, or cello in an orchestra. Other essential oils, like Ginger and Rosemary, are considered to be "middle notes" and they help to form the body of the composition. 

Thoughtful and intuitive blending of essential oil fragrances, informed by aromatherapy science and tradition, can result in new, unique, and inspiring blends that soothe and satisfy mind and body on the deepest levels. 

Aromatherapy treatments have both physiological and psychological effects. The combination of massage and the medicinal and therapeutic qualities of the essential oils (molecules both inhaled [aroma] and absorbed through the skin) can soothe, re-vitalise, uplift the spirit, encourage positive thinking and boost the immune system enabling the body to heal itself.

 

Physiological Benefits – Aromatherapy massage can:

Enhance lymphatic drainage, this helps reduce fluid retention and prevent oedema, induce a feeling of deep relaxation in the body, stimulate the body's natural immune system, increase the oxygen and nutrient supply to the tissues by increasing the blood circulation to help increase energy levels as blockages and congestion in the nerves are eased.

 

Psychological Benefits – Aromatherapy massage can:

promote a general state of well-being

calm and soothe the mind

help to reduce nervous tension

help to lift the mood and reduce feelings of depression

 

Aromatherapy Massage

Your modesty will be respected at all times.  You will be covered with towels which will be strategically rolled back to allow an area of the body to be massaged.  I / we will leave the room to allow privacy when you are getting changed.

 

We offer Aromatherapy Workshops <Link>

Would you like to share some time learning about the amazing properties of the essential oils we use?  Create your very own lotion, cream or room spray?

We are obliged by professional membership and "ethics" to conduct a Face to Face consultation in order to discuss contraindications and determine the best fragrance blend for your by process of oil selection.

 

We offer Aromatherapy blends of:-  Cocoa Butters, Creams, Lotions, Massage Oils & Room Sprays.  We still need to carry out a blending consultation in order to ensure the product is made to best suit you / your needs. The oils are FAB in the bath to add some luxury to your bath, the creams for general hand / foot use.  We suggest they have around a 3 to 4 month life once blended into the carrier products.  We can create the same blends again within the 3 to 4 month period, however, we suggest a review after this as it will help us determine change, this too is an educational process.

 

Before arrival we request / suggest you be freshly showered / bathed, this is to ensure you are able to keep the oils on your body for longer when you return home, you will not need to shower or bathe again before bed.  For the massage, we have disposable tanning briefs available, or we suggest older briefs be worn, if you feel more comfortable you may wear shorts too. 

 

Please wear what you are comfortable in, (please avoid nylon or silken clothing) as this can generate static electricity. We will discuss any adjustment of clothing to accommodate Hot~Stones placement, access etc with you. 

We will always discuss the 'Contact Contract' to ensure we are happy to proceed with the massage.

 

We suggest wearing older clothes for after as the oils may lightly stain clothing etc.  We use towels to cover your body, your modesty will be respected at all times.
