Aromatherapy is the use of organic essences from aromatic plants and flowers and can be traced back as far as 3500BC, the priestesses of Egyptian temples were burning Frankincense to clear the mind. The Romans used essential oils for massage and aromatic herbs within the home.

The essences or Essential Oils as they are more widely known are extracted from a variety of plants.


Every essential oil has its own unique healing properties and fragrance. Several essences can be used in combination to promote healing on various levels, Physical, Mental and Emotional.


The essential oils work in two ways, firstly when using them in conjunction with massage they are absorbed through the skin and secondly through the inhalation of the aroma.


Essential Oils can be used in many ways such as Massage, Bathing, Compress and Inhalation and can help most ailments. Massage especially is used widely in Hospices and for terminally ill patients. It has been reported by the media that the use of massage therapy helps the patients to cope with the stresses of long-term illness.


Many ailments are found to materialise from emotional traumas. For example if someone is suffering from arthritis, Rosemary, Juniper or Chamomile may be considered to help the Physical aspects of the condition. The person's feelings would also be taken into account; are they suffering from resentment or anger about their condition. If this were the case then different oils would be chosen to help with these psychological aspects or combined in the synergy.


Correct and proper use of Essential Oils helps to promote a more balanced body and reduces the risk of succumbing to everyday illness and stress. They can also help to promote the ability to cope with potentially difficult situations and events.


Aromatherapy can also stimulate the immune system thereby helping to avoid the 'Run-Down' feeling that can often lead to colds and flu.

MASSAGE


Massage is the therapeutic use of the sense of touch, either by oneself or by another. Touching is not just therapeutic but is necessary for a normal happy life. Instinctively we touch or rub a painful area to give relief and we also hug each other for comfort and affection. Massage in itself is a very relaxing experience. You can use various mediums such as baby oil, powder, body lotion and of course Essential Oils combined with carrier oil. Massage is applied directly to the body using various hand movements ensuring contact is maintained at all times. By combining Massage with the use of Essential oils you are getting the benefit of both therapies in one session.


WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A THERAPY SESSION



A full case history will be taken before any treatment takes place and you will be asked questions about your current health. This enables the practitioner to ensure that the correct essential oils can be selected for your therapy session. It is generally a good idea to have a bath or shower prior to your massage. This allows the essential oils time to be absorbed totally before your usual cleansing routine. During the treatment body privacy will be respected at all times.

 
Afterwards


You will be encouraged to drink plenty of water to help to cleanse and re-hydrate the body. Try not to do anything too strenuous after the treatment – it is best to be able to go home and relax after any treatment session.

Further visits


These will be discussed with you, and will largely depend on your condition and how you feel the best way to continue is.
