Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy aims to treat the whole person by taking account not only of their physical state but also their emotions, helping to restore the harmony of mind, body and spirit.

Aromatherapy works with the properties of plants using their essential oils in a natural complimentary therapy which can help improve both physical and emotional well being
Aromatherapy is most effective in therapeutic massage often using relaxing or uplifting fragrances.

The main benefits of using essential oils are from the oils being absorbed by your skin or through your breathing.
The oils can have a physical effect by causing chemical changes in your body’s systems and a psychological effect when you inhale the fragrance, as the sense of smell has a direct route to the brain and can have immediate effect on your body.

The first evidence of the use of aromatic oils on the human body comes from the Ancient Egyptians who as for back as 3000BC extracted oils by a method of infusion.
Ancient Greece and Rome used aromatic oils for massage in their daily baths.

Aromatherapy was re-introduced into Britain in the 1950’s by Marguerite Maury, who developed specialised aromatherapy massage techniques and proposed the holistic approach of the “individual prescription” selecting and blending oils to suit the individual needs of the client.

Research into Aromatherapy still continues today.
