Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy using essential oils to help maintain physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Clinical aromatherapists use plant-derived essential oils in order to address health issues for clients. Clients may use this for emotional or physical health needs. Different essential oils have differing properties which can include anti-inflammatory, antiviral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal effects.
Essential oils are also selected for their calming or stimulating effects for emotional wellbeing, and can have analgesic (painkilling) and antispasmodic (muscle relaxing) qualities in the body’s systems. They can be blended to suit the exact requirements of clients.
The clinical Aromatherapist carries out a thorough consultation to include clients’ general health, medical history and emotional wellbeing. Organic essential oils are chosen uniquely for the situation on the day, and used in a massage to stimulate your body’s self-healing ability.
Massage relieves stress, aids elimination of toxins, relaxes muscles, lifts tension, promotes deeper breathing and boosts circulation. Essential oils can enhance mood, increase energy, improve focus and boost immunity. Aromatherapy massage is especially beneficial for stress-related conditions.
