Aromatherapy Massage

I am a fully qualified Aromatherapist with an additional qualification in Massage which I gained from Bristol School of Holistic Therapies.

 

In my Aromatherapy sessions I combine Traditional Massage techniques with my extensive training in the therapeutic use of essential oils. Studies have shown Aromatherapy to be successful in treating many physical and mental health symptoms, for example:


  • Muscle aches and pains

  • Arthritis

  • Frozen shoulder

  • Eczema

  • Psoriasis

  • Acne

  • Sinusitis

  • Digestive problems

  • Menstrual problems

  • Menopause

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Poor circulation

     

This list is by no means exhaustive; there are hundreds of essential oils with many therapeutic properties.

What is Aromatherapy Massage Treatment?

A first Aromatherapy session begins with a full health consultation, to ensure the right oils and any massage adaptations for you. This is your time to discuss everything you would like to gain from the treatment. A selection of appropriate oils will be provided for you to choose yourself and a blend will be made in a plant based carrier oil for your massage. The massage is usually light to medium pressure, but pressure can be adjusted to suit your preferences.

Essential oils don't just smell lovely, they are extracted from plants and resins, long known for their health benefits. Essential oil molecules are extremely small, so they are able to penetrate the dermal layer of the skin, reaching the blood vessels, where they circulate the body and target problem areas. When you inhale an essential oil, the molecules reach your central nervous system, resulting in feelings of calm or vitality, depending on your needs and the oil used.

Massage stimulates muscles and tendons, improving blood flow, loosening adhesions and releasing tension. When you have an Aromatherapy Massage, you are having a multi-sensory experience: a relaxing massage and the blissful scent of essential oils.

My Aromatherapy sessions can be adapted to suit your needs, including a bespoke oil blend tailored for you, and additional supports for your comfort during the massage. If you have any aches and pains or any other conditions that would benefit from further treatment, my sessions also include a free bottle of hand blended massage oil or lotion to take home with guidance.

Feel free to contact me to discuss your requirements and to make sure Aromatherapy is for you.
