An Aromatherapy Massage is a massage with pure essential oils which are blended to your needs for therapeutic purposes. The oils are derived from aromatic plants, herbs and trees and are extracted via distillation, expression or solvent extraction from plant matter (leaves, flowers, twigs, bark or roots).
The oils used in these treatments are not pre-blended. They are selected, and freshly blended for each individual client at the start of each treatment.
Benefits of Essential Oils:
Some essential oils are antiseptic such as Lemon & Tea Tree, whilst others are Anti-inflammatory such as Yarrow & Geranium. Chamomile is an anti-histamine and so useful for Hayfever, whilst Black Pepper and Ginger are warming oils which are useful for muscular aches where is no inflammation. Other oils are uplifting (citrus oils & Melissa), whilst others have more sedative properties such as Valerian or Vetiver. Essential oils can also support the respiratory and immune system and can also be used for skin conditions and sleep disorders.
The fastest way for the oils to be absorbed into the body is through inhalation. Oils are also easily absorbed through the skin and into the blood stream.
What to expect from an Aromatherapy Massage treatment:
As a form of Massage Therapy, the treatment is holistic, massage based and carried out following an in-depth consultation. Essential Oils are then selected and blended based on each clients’ needs following the consultation.
Essential Oil Quality:
All essential oils used are sourced from high quality suppliers and where possible Organic and certified Organic by the Soil Association. High quality oils are used to ensure that you receive the maximum benefit of plants grown in the most suitable climates and environmental landscapes without dilution with other lower quality oils.
Essential Oils are blended with Carrier Oils which could include some of the following subject to skin type and consultation: Sesame Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Olive Oil and Peach Kernal Oil. The carrier oils also have great benefits to the skin and can be anti inflammatory and moisturising.
Client comfort is taken seriously at The Holistic Therapy Rooms. Back Massages can be carried out in a seated position where required.
