AROMATHERAPY

WHAT IS AROMATHERAPY AND HOW CAN IT HELP ME?

Aromatherapy is a natural holistic therapy, which combines the healing power of massage with the therapeutic properties of natural essential oils. It is successful in the treatment of many stress related conditions such as:
  • Chronic Tension
  • Disturbed Sleep
  • Sinus Pain
  • Tension Headaches
  • Muscular Pain
    and many other conditions

    The skin can easily absorb essential oils, with their many therapeutic properties and the essences are also inhaled to have an effect on the mind as well as the body.

    They can help ease sore muscles, dispel tension and restore well-being. They also help to alleviate the effects of stress, normalise blood pressure, relax the mind and sooth the skin.

    WHAT TO EXPECT AT AN AROMATHERAPY TREATMENT

    Before the start of your first treatment, a medical questionnaire will have to be compeleted, this will enable the most suitable essential oils to be chosen to suit your individual needs, these mixes can change with each treatment, depending on your presenting problems.

    After your consultation, you will be left alone to undress in privacy, down to your underwear, you will then lay on the treatment couch, covering yourself with a warm towel. During your treatment you will be fully covered with warm towels, with only the area being treated at that moment uncovered, I.e. arm, leg, back.

    On each visit, a blend of oils will be created specifically for you. Depending on your current problem, you will be given the option of purchasing creams, bath oils, shampoo with essential oils made up to your specific requirement to use at home e.g. if you suffer from stress you might find it beneficial to have a relaxing essential oil blend for your oil burner at home, or a essential oil blend for your bath water.

    After the first treatment you will be given an aftercare leaflet which you will be asked to read and consider.


    Many conditions benefit from regular treatments, and a treatment plan will be drawn up, e.g. chronic conditions would probably need 1 treatment per week for 4-6 weeks, lessening to fortnightly treatments, and eventually 1 per month to maintain bodily balance.

    HOLISTIC MASSAGE


    HOW CAN A MASSAGE HELP ME?

    Using the power of touch to calm, soothe and revitalize the body, massage eases aches and pains caused by stored tensions, improving tone and elasticity of muscles which is caused by an increased blood supply.

    Massage encourages the flow of blood and lymph which improves circulation and naturally helps eliminate toxins, leaving you feeling invigorated, yet relaxed.

    WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A TREATMENT

    As with Aromatherapy, at the first consultation a medical questionnaire will have to be completed, you will then be left alone to undress in privacy down to your underwear, you will then lay on the couch, covering yourself with a large warm towel, the treatment will then commence. The massage is carried out using a base oil, ie Sunflower, Peach Kernel, Almond oil etc.

    After the first treatment you will be given an aftercare leaflet which you will be asked to read and consider.

    HOW OFTEN?
    Depending on your specific problems, with acute problems weekly treatments could possibly be suggested, for approximately 4-6 weeks decreasing to fortnightly treatments, then top up treatments approx every 4 weeks. Of course many fit and healthy people have massages on a regular basis, you do not have to be unwell.
