Aromatherapy is the name given to the use of essential oils in a therapeutic way and I offer back neck and shoulder and full body massages. An essential oil is the 100% natural fragrant essence that is extracted from the flowers, leaves, barks, roots and berries of a plant. When you peel an orange or crush a piece of rosemary between your fingers it is the essential oil that you are inhaling.
I will carry out a full consultation and select oils according to your information provided, how you are hoping to benefit from the treatment, medical conditions and any preference to types of smells you like for example blossom, citrus or woody. These oils will be blended together with carrier oil and applied to your skin where they will be absorbed quickly within the body.
The benefits of an aromatherapy massage are not only to work your muscles, tissues, sore sports and tension areas but to use the restorative properties of the essential oils to relax your body and bring your body and mind back into balance and harmony. As well as having effects on our emotions essential oils have many therapeutic properties and can assist with many ailments. A French perfumer discovered this when he burned his hand and on plunging it into a vat of lavender he noticed that his hand did not scar.

Pain relief, Relaxation of tired and stressed muscles, Improvement of blood and lymph circulation, Toxin removal, Improvement of skin texture, Intestinal and digestive problems, Stress and anxiety, ME, Fibromyalgia and many more conditions
