Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is based on the ancient art of healing through the use of essential oils and massage.

Essential Oils

Essential Oils are pure aromatic essences which have been distilled or extracted from various flowers, herbs, spices, trees and fruit.

The oils are highly concentrated in this form and have specific healing properties.

Mixing the Oils

After consultation, and in accordance with the needs of the individual, particular essential oils are chosen and mixed in a base or carrier oil allowing for safe dilution and maximum absorption of the oil and its beneficial properties.

How Aromatherapy Works

Once prepared the oil is then carefully massaged onto the skin.

The powerful aroma stimulates ones sense of smell which in turn has a direct effect on the mind and nervous system which can be stimulating, balancing and uplifting.

The properties of the oils are also gained from the absorption of the oil through the skin into the blood stream. The essences, once absorbed, circulate to the various internal organs and systems of the body they are associated with.

The benefits of the oils combined with the quality of massage create this uniquely relaxing and pleasant form of holistic therapy.

Aromatherapy improves general health by encouraging the body's natural healing activities. Having a direct effect on the mind and body, Aromatherapy is equally beneficial as a relaxing massage or for specific medical conditions.
