Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils  from plants to benefit health and well being.  Essential oils have various health benefits, depending on which plant they come from.  Unlike many alternative therapies, aromatherapy has a basis in science. It’s well established that the chemical components of the oils have beneficial properties.  In fact, some oils are used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals. However, as with all alternative therapies, how effective they are varies from person to person.  In general though, depending on the oils used, aromatherapy massage can help to:

  • Reduce tension in muscles
  • Soothe aching muscles
  • Promote a feeling of calm and well being
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Encourage healing of muscle damage
  • Invigorate the body and mind
  • Aid relaxation and sleep
  • Improve skin tone and encourage healthy skin cell renewal
  • Assist lymphatic drainage
  • Boost the immune system

Aromatherapy massage oil blends

Blending oils that complement each other increases the benefits. I have a range of  aromatherapy massage blends that I can use in my treatments.  This is an optional extra – massage with plain oil is also very beneficial.  If you would like an aromatherapy massage, then you can choose from the following blends:

  • Relax – Bergamot, frankincense, clary sage & rose absolute
  • Unwind – Lavender, orange, frankincense, palmarosa & sandalwood
  • Muscle ease – Lemon, eucalyptus, ginger & marjoram
  • Sweet dreams – Lavender, cedarwood, ylang ylang & lemon verbena
  • Anti-anxiety – Bergamot, lavender & ylang ylang
  • Refresh & focus – Eucalyptus, bergamot, lavender & lemon
