Aromatherapy is the art and science of using therapeutic essential oils in order to promote and maintain physical and emotional health and wellbeing.
Professional Aromatherapists are skilled and highly trained health practitioners who possess an extensive knowledge of up to 100 different essential oils and know the best method of application to ensure safe, effective treatment outcomes which are tailored to individual needs.
Essential oils are dynamic and chemically complex substances, which all possess a vibrant quality and distinctive fragrance. Pure essential oils can be up to 70 times more concentrated than the original plant source and absorption into the bloodstream commences within a fraction of a second of application.
Aromatherapy massage is designed to maximise the benefits of essential oils by using a combination of different movements and techniques such as lymphatic drainage which facilities and assists the elimination of toxins, and Swedish massage techniques that improve circulation, increase mobility and reduce pain.
Working on many levels simultaneously, Aromatherapy massage is very relaxing and eases stress and tension in the body and mind. It promotes healthy sleep patterns and can be extremely effective in treating emotional imbalance, including depression.
The unique and complex combination of chemicals in the individual essential oils are transported throughout the body via the bloodstream, enhancing the body’s own healing mechanisms and then eliminated without leaving harmful residue or creating unwelcome side effects.
