What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy uses highly concentrated extracts from plants, called essential oils, which are generally produced by steam or steam and water distilling the plant material. The essential oils have specific properties, so, for example, some oils have antimicrobial actions against specific pathogens, some have analgesic properties, some are sedating, some stimulating. The common method of use in this country is via massage, applying the essential oils, diluted in a vegetable carrier oil, but a practitioner may also advise on their use in other ways, for example, as inhalations for respiratory conditions, or applied in creams for skin conditions,
How Can It Help Me?
Aromatherapy is arguably one of the most ‘feel-good’, stress relieving therapies around, combining the powerful emotional effect of massage, and the physiological benefits of massage with the use of the essential oils, and the ability for aroma to evoke memory, and affect mood.
Stress has profound effects on physical and emotional health, as the various hormones and neurotransmitters produced in acute or chronic stress have wide reaching effects. The combination of a therapy like massage which ‘feels good’ – that is, is de-stressing, with essential oils carefully chosen to address specific physical or emotional presentations is a powerful one
I charge £60 for a session, which lasts 90 minutes. The massage itself lasts around 65-70 minutes and time is allocated for a consultation and choosing of the blend.
