Aromatherapy uses essential oils which are concentrated extracts derived from natural plants. As well as carrying the beautiful smells of the plants, these oils are powerful chemical liquids which contain many physical properties. For example lavender oil is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. The art of an aromatherapist is to blend a combination of oils to suit your body's physical needs but also taking into account the subtle psychological benefits each oil can bring. Did you know that eucalyptus oil can help you to gain clarity and move forward in life when you feel confused and bogged down? I aim to create a synergistic blend for each treatment which addresses your needs at that time, and of course which smells heavenly.


Aromatherapy treatments consist of massage or inhalation.



Your combination of essential oils is blended with selected carrier oils and massaged into the skin using gentle, soothing movements. Lymphatic drainage movements can be used to enhance the effects of the treatment.



Your blend of oils can be prepared to use at home as an inhalation for example in a burner or in the bath. In this way you can carry on with your treatments and benefit from the effects of essential oils in your own home.



Why choose Aromatherapy?


Aromatherapy Massage has the benefits of a soothing massage treatment with all the positive effects that brings to the skin, circulatory system and muscles. The properties of the essential oils also have the added benefit of helping to balancing the other body systems for example the nervous, immune and respiratory systems.


Inhalation of Aromatherapy oils has the benefit of being a portable treatment which you can used out and about as well as at home. A few drops of a blend of oils can be applied to a tissue to carry around during the day.




I have found Aromatherapy particularly useful for:

  •  Stress relief and the associated benefits
  • Gentle relief of long term muscle tension

  • Easing hormonal problems

  • An aid in the treatment of eczema and other skin conditions

  • Helps with the recovery from illness

  • Can be used as a tool for meditation practice



If you have not had aromatherapy before you will require a patch test at least 24 hours before your treatment to ensure no adverse skin reaction.
