Aromatherapy is a gentle healing art using massage and scented essential oils derived from aromatic plants and trees. Aromatherapy helps to relieve physical and psychological discomfort and to promote health of body and serenity of mind. The foundations of aromatherapy date back thousands of years and the use of essential oils one thousand years ago. Aromatherapy was used by ancient civilisations such as Egypt, China, India, Italy and Greece.
Aromatherapy massage makes use of long, flowing strokes to promote relaxation and facilitate the absorption of essential oils by the skin.
Each essential oil has different healing properties – some calm and some energise. The oils are chosen to therapeutically treat the emotional disorders of the Client through the olfactory glands.
During Aromatherapy, when the oils are inhaled, a chemical message is sent to the brain which triggers a certain emotional response.
The combination of massage, medicinal and the therapeutic qualities of the essential oils (molecules both inhaled and absorbed through the skin) can soothe, revitalise, uplift the spirit, encourage positive thinking and boost the immune system to enable the body to heal itself.
