Aromatherapy is the systematic use of essential oils in holistic treatments to improve emotional, physical and mental well-being".
Aromatherapy massage consist of blending therapeutic-grade essential oils in pure vegetable oils such as grape seed or almond and applying them directly on the body by manipulating the soft tissue. Essential oils have a unique ability to penetrate cell membranes and diffuse throughout the blood. Some of the essential oils are anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic or analgesic. The fragrance of essential oils may be calming and sedating, helping to overcome anxiety or hyperactivity. Essential oils may also combat infectious disease by killing viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens.
Basil, marjoram, pine, wintergreen, cypress or lemongrass may help to relax aching muscles, cramps, sprains, spasms, improve and support circulation, strengthen connective tissues and ligaments, tendonitis, osteoporosis, arthritis, rheumatism, bone or joint discomfort.
As part of your first treatment a full consultation is essential to ascertain your medical history, your general state of health and how you are feeling at the time. This will contribute towards the selection of an individual blend of essential oils to meet your needs.
