Aromatherapy

Chemical chains are different in each oil

We all know the power of fragrance. Aromatherapy can be evocative, bringing up memories of happy times, and even changing your mood to a more pleasant aspect. Did you know that essential oils can also have extremely therapeutic effects? In fact, aromatherapy can be so powerful it can aid bodily functions. Depending on the chosen oil or oils, the effects can:

  1. improve breathing problems
  2. relieve stress and anxiety
  3. stimulate the blood circulation
  4. alleviate pre-menstrual or menopausal symptoms
  5. calm digestive issues
  6. reduce pain
  7. help sleep disturbances
  8. support labour and birth
  9. soothe skin irritations

Obviously this list is not exhaustive…

Eucalyptus can be very powerful

Rose can be pleasant for some, but others dislike it

Because pure essential oils are so potent, it is important to recognise that aromatherapy can also cause problems if they are used without thoroughly trained guidance. For example, some oils are not to be used with children under 10, and some are to be avoided completely as they may affect the central nervous system and cause breathing difficulties in babies and children under 2 years of age (specifically eucalyptus comes to mind, but others also need cautions).

 

Mandarin and other citrus oils can be very uplifting

 

A full and thorough consultation is taken before any oils are tried, and you will be able to choose from a suitable selection.

I am also a fully qualified ITEC level 3 massage therapist. If you require a swedish massage without aromatherapy you can book this here.

My bespoke aromatherapy sessions will allow you to unwind and restore yourself fully. You can be assured of a quality, therapeutic treatment, safe in the knowledge that I am highly trained in Level 3 ITEC aromatherapy.
