What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy has a long history it’s as old as mankind. For thousands of years essential oils have been used for therapeutic, medicinal and religious purposes. Through massage essential oils promote health and vitality by helping your body to heal itself naturally.
An Aromatherapy treatment is a combination of carefully chosen essential oils combined with a deeply relaxing, therapeutic massage to help ease painful muscles and joints, heal stress-related conditions and release general tensions.
What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are aromatic, mostly liquid substances, extracted from the roots, stems, leaves, bark or flowers of a plant. They hold the plant’s personality and all have a function e.g. repelling or attracting insects or helping with photosynthesis.
All the oils have many therapeutic benefits, e.g. anti spasmodic, sedating, balancing, revitalizing, strengthening and help to uplift the mood and spirits.
Aromatherapy helps to combine the many healing benefits of nature with a deeply relaxing massage; all mixes are uniquely put together for the individual.
