Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils extracted from plants for medicinal purposes. It is a natural holistic therapy, which combines the healing power of massage with the therapeutic properties of essential oils. Essential oils can be easily absorbed by the skin, and the essences are also inhaled during the treatment to work on the mind and body. Aromatherapy can help ease sore muscles, dispel tension and restore well-being. It also helps to alleviate the effects of stress.
As a holistic therapy, Aromatherapy Massage (ARM) is designed to treat your overall needs, not just one symptom. The therapist will first take a full medical history and details of your lifestyle to ensure you get the right treatment. Then a blend of 2 – 3 essential oils will be prepared to suit your individual needs.The therapist will usually test the oils on your skin first to check for allergies or sensitivities.
Full body massage is carried out using gentle massaging techniques to apply the oils. It is also possible to massage part of the body, for example, back and shoulders, depending on the individual’s needs.
