Aromatherapy

What is it?

The use of aromatic herbs has been around for thousands of years and has been proven to help cleanse and heal both body and mind. Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils (extracted from plants) combined with massage. It is a very individual treatment and Angie blends only the finest base and aromatic oils for your specific needs following a free consultation.

What happens during an Aromatherapy Massage?

During the massage the client’s body remains fully covered apart from the head, face and the specific area which is being treated. This keeps the body temperature constant and also preserves dignity and privacy. The body is covered by means of towels and these can be adjusted to uncover different areas during the treatment and to re-cover the areas just completed.

Although this is generally a gentle massage, a firmer pressure can be applied to tone specific muscles which may have been overworked or damaged and Angie will consult with the client before and during the treatment.

Aromatherapy Massage – the Benefits

Aromatherapy massage has many benefits, but here are some of the most common: -

  • Relief from aches and pains
  • To relax contracted/tight muscles
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Relieve stiffness in joints
  • Tone up slack muscles
  • Help lose weight – when combined with diet
  • Create a feeling of well being and enhanced self-esteem
  • Relaxation

This is a marvellous treatment, not only to help everyday aches, pains, stresses and strains but also to pamper a dehydrated skin and relax overworked muscles with nourishing, rejuvenating and warmed oils.
