Aromatherapy Massage uses the beneficial effects of aroma while receiving a massage. Pure essential oils are used to relax, balance and work on the muscles. It also increases blood circulation and encourages the removal of toxins in the body. This type of massage involves, long, deep strokes and is perfect for muscles aches or ‘tightness’ in the body, although the pressure may be adjusted to the needs of the client. The client and therapist will both decide on which essential oils should be used for the treatment.
A 30 min Aromatherapy massage session will involve a brief consultation and a back, shoulder and neck massage. A one hour full-body massage will involve a consultation and a massage on the back, shoulders, neck, legs and arms. If a one hour session is required to concentrate on one particular area of the body e.g the back, then this may be discussed prior to the treatment.
