Aromatherapy Massage Treatments
Aromatherapy massage is a deeply relaxing form of massage using a medium of aromatic essential oils diluted in carrier oil. During our initial consultation I will establish conditions you want to be taken into account when selecting a massage oil, e.g. aches and pains, relaxing, uplifting etc. Over the years I have come up with a number of different blends to suit every occasion and these are now available as aromatherapy massage oils in my online shop.
Usually I will select one of these lovely massage oils, however if we decide on a different blend I will make that up for you. And of course if you come for massage regularly we can vary the blend we use according to how you feel on the day. This is an amazing way of discovering the wonderful world of aromatic essential oils and their therapeutic benefits.
The chosen blend will then be gently massaged into the body, so that the essential oils can be absorbed gradually to do their work. It is a deeply therapeutic experience, promoting both deep relaxation and the therapeutic effects of the essential oils, such as invigoration, comfort, decongestant, calming etc. A full treatment will focus on the whole body, however this can easily be customised according to your needs, for example you may just want a back massage, or a facial. Clients comment that they feel wonderfully relaxed afterwards and ready to face anything.
I offer the following Aromatherapy Massage treatments, which can be tailored to suit:
Full Aromatherapy Massage
One hour and twenty minutes of pure bliss and relaxation, covering the back, shoulders, neck, head, face, arms, legs, and feet. I will use a mix of carrier and essential oils, blended especially to meet your needs. For example Frankincense, Lime and Lavender to calm you, or Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, and Marjoram to relieve congestion and muscle tension.
Rejuvenating Facial Massage
Forty-five minutes of intensive treatment for the face, head, neck, and shoulders, starting with a ‘dry’ massage using movements that give you a natural face lift by smoothing wrinkles, reducing puffiness, and calming uneven skin tone. This is followed by an aromatherapy massage using a blend of carrier and essential oils that are gentle and deeply moisturising.
Upper Body Aromatherapy Massage
Escape the strains of everyday life during one hour of pure relaxation covering the back, shoulders, neck, head, face, and arms. I will use a mix of carrier and essential oils, blended especially to meet your needs. For example Ylang ylang, Grapefruit and Marjoram to relax you, or Patchouli, Lavender, and Bergamot to lift your mood.
