Aromatherapy

This form of massage is a very safe and relaxing therapy, using specifically selected essential oils to suit the individual’s needs at that time, whether spiritual, emotional, mental or physical.¬†

Essential oils are thought to be the ‘essence’ or ‘life-force’ of plants and they are carried around the body in the blood stream and lymphatic system. They have active qualities which can be tailored to your needs; some oils stimulate detoxification in the body and are excellent for cellulite, others increase mental focus, whilst others can help to deeply relax and calm the nervous system and mind.

With an Aromatherapy Massage you can choose either a relaxation massage to help you to switch off from a busy schedule, or a deep tissue massage, which is more stimulating and designed to increase circulation and release ‘knots’ in the back and shoulders. Indian Head Massage is also incorporated if desired which can help to release tension and help relax the whole body.

Acupressure Facials, using aromatherapy oils are a great way to impact the body as a whole. Certain  acupressure points on the face correspond to specific areas and internal organs of the body. By gently yet powerfully acting on these points, you can release toxins which can give a relaxed, lifted and radiant look to the face and also help to relax, calm, yet focus the mind and stimulate circulation within the body.

Acupressure Facials can also be added to an Aromatherapy Massage and along with an Indian Head Massage, can provide you with a completely rejuvenating treatment.

Massage with essential oils may help to:

  • Reduce anxiety
  • Relieve stress
  • Relieve muscular aches, pains and fatigue
  • Improve blood and lymphatic circulation, detox and cleanse the system
  • Induce relaxation and that ‘feel-good factor’ through release of endorphins in the brain
  • Invigorate as well as relax depending on oil choice
  • Boost the immune system
  • Improve skin tone
