Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment using essential oils and hands on massage to relax and reset the body and mind.
Essential oils work in several ways. Firstly through our sense of smell which has a direct route to the limbric area of the brain, smells produce an emotional response and revives past memories. (Scent memory survives longer than visual memory.)
Before each treatment the oils chosen will be based on which will most benefit the client then checked with the clients scent memory to make sure it has pleasant connotations.
The second therapeutic quality of aromatherapy is the use of essential oils through the skin, accounting for 12% of our total body mass, massage is a pleasant and effective means of absorbing the benefits of the specifically tailored essential oils in your treatment.
