Aromatherapy massage is a form of gentle massage using essential oils for physical and emotional well being. Essential oils are powerful extracts from flowers, herbs, spices, grasses, resins or bark and are utilised for their medicinal properties. The therapeutic value of essential oils has been recognised since ancient Egyptian times and they have been used in many different cultures.
The oils are chosen very carefully with you and are diluted into a carrier oil such as almond oil or grapeseed oil, taking into account any contraindications .The bespoke blend is then massaged into your skin using traditional massage techniques together with lymphatic drainage techniques and acupressure leaving you calm and relaxed.
I specialise in treating clients who would prefer a more gentle massage such as the elderly, frail, individuals with chronic health conditions such as cancer or those suffering with pain. I also provide pregnancy and postnatal gentle aromatherapy massage.
A full consultation will be taken at your first appointment, this will enable me to to choose the best essential oils for you. Future treatments will include a mini consultation to enable me to choose the most suitable essential oils for you.
During your massage your privacy will be protected at all times, you will be covered in towels and only the areas being worked on at any given time will be uncovered.
