Aromatherapy uses the purest plant essence in the form of organic essential oils, which are extracts from various parts of plants, fruits, flowers, bark, roots, or resin. Essential oils contain dozens of powerful complex natural chemicals that have beneficial properties. Due to the diversity of essential oils and their individual therapeutic properties, the range of benefits and effects of Aromatherapy is wide ranging.
Aromatherapy treatments have both physiological and psychological effects. The combination of massage, medicinal and therapeutic qualities of the essential oils (molecules both inhaled [aroma] and absorbed through the skin) can soothe, revitalise, uplift the spirit, encourage positive thinking and boost the immune system enabling the body to heal itself.
An aromatherapy massage is a gentle, relaxing massage that uses the properties of the essential oils to bring about affect. Your therapist will tailor the blend of essential oils to suit your individual needs. An Aromatherapy massage lasts one hour and is available on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and on Saturday morning.
