In the art of aromatherapy essential oils are applied in a variety of ways including massage, ointments, lotions, baths and inhalations. Their holistic application is geared towards the needs of the individual. Aromatherapists know that each individual requires a unique blend of essences.
Combining the benefits of essential oils with those of therapeutic massage produces a deeply pleasurable yet highly effective way of healing. Together they enhance the circulation of blood and lymph, relax and tone tense, tired muscles, improve nervous conductivity, and promote an overall sense of well-being.
In our increasingly stressful, often impersonal world, massage is being rediscovered as a thoroughly renewing, non-invasive form of communication through touch
who can benefit?
Aromatherapy can be of benefit to everyone-whether their health is good or requires improvement. It is excellent for helping to relieve a wide range of stress-related disorders. These include headache, insomnia, indigestion, irritable bowel, inflammatory skin conditions and pre-menstrual tension, to name but a few.
The movement of essential oils through the body, together with therapeutic massage, encourages lymphatic drainage, mobilises toxins, and can assist with obesity, cellulitis and water retention. Many soothing, anti-inflammatory essential oils help to relieve the aches and pains associated with rheumatism and arthritis.
During aromatherapy massage the aroma of the essences calms the mind and fortifies the nervous system. The psychologically balancing effect of the treatment allows us to use our vital energy positively. Relaxed and refreshed, we are able to face life's challenges with a renewed sense of confidence and ease.
