Aromatherapy is the use of 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 treatment:
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.
An Aromatherapy treatment has lots of long fluid movements. As required by the client, additional pressure can be incorporated with some Deep Tissue techniques. The treatment can also include an Aromatherapy Facial Massage if requested by the client (clients should arrive make-up free if they select this option).
Aromatherapy Facial Massages should not be confused with salon based facials. The Aromatherapy Facial Massage contains more Massage techniques and helps to reduce tension in the face, particularly in the Cheeks and Jaw. This might help Bruxism (Teeth Grinding), as well as increasing blood flow beneath the skin and relaxing the tissues.
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, Sweet Almond 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.
