Brief explanation of the therapy
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils in a deeply relaxing, therapeutic, full body massage. A blend of essential oils is carefully selected to suit each individual’s needs. The treatment enhances the body’s natural healing abilities and helps eliminate toxins. Aromatherapy is an effective preventative treatment helping to balance mind, body and spirit.
Essential oils are extracted from flowers, herbs, spices, etc. They have a wide variety of healing properties. The essential oils are diluted in a carrier oil such as jojoba or wheatgerm oil.
What can the client expect at the appointment
To receive a deeply relaxing full body massage, wrapped in warm towels and blankets whilst drifting off to relaxing music (or silence if preferred!). After the treatment you will feel very relaxed and it is best to take the rest of the day gently if possible in order to obtain the full benefit of the treatment.
What happens in a session
The initial treatment includes a 15 minute consultation followed by a 1 hour full body massage. Follow up treatments last for one hour. Oils are selected for the client’s specific needs to enhance the treatment.

How many sessions should the client need before they see a result
Everyone is different and therefore responds uniquely to treatment. It also depends how long a condition has existed. There will be a feeling of relaxation and calm after the first treatment and physical aches and pains can start to improve after the first treatment. Benefits are increased with regular treatment even if every couple of months but benefits will be felt after a one-off treatment.
