Due to Covid 19 I am not currently offering massage therapies, but I hope to return to massage during 2021. I am able to offer advice with regard to supporting individual self care needs with Aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy is a deeply therapeutic treatment using specific plant extracts, known as essential oils, to promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Essential oils are powerful extracts from flowers, herbs, spices, grasses, resins or bark which stimulate our olfactory senses and can positively affect the way we respond to stress and illness. Essential oils can facilitate a feeling of deep relaxation, whilst balancing emotions and bringing feelings of calm during times of stress and creating a sense of energy and uplift when we are feeling low.
I work with over 70 different organic essential oils, thus ensuring that each individual clients needs are being met. The oils are mixed with a carrier oil and are massaged into your skin using traditional massage techniques together with lymphatic drainage techniques and acupressure leaving you calm and relaxed. I am able to combine if required deep tissue massage to target areas of muscular tension. Aromatherapy can provide support for many conditions such as the menopause and hormonal issues, stress, anxiety, depression, muscular aches and pains, arthritis, rheumatism and cancer. The analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties of essential oils combined with massage are soothing and can help to relieve aches and pains whilst providing a boost to the immune system.
Essential oils can be applied in a variety of ways apart from massage including ointments, lotions, baths and inhalations. They can also be used in a burner or diffuser at home to motivate, uplift or calm. Combining the benefits of essential oils with those of therapeutic massage offers a wonderful opportunity to relax, unwind and de-stress.
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.
