Aromatherapy Massage (pre blended)
A rebalancing therapy that uses pre blended oils to suit your needs and applied using a carefully selected range of light to medium massage techniques.
Aromatherapy is thousands of years old with origins in ancient Egypt, India and the Far East. This deceptively simple therapy has been used for centuries. Modern aromatherapy helps to reduce stress and tension; improve mood; aid relaxation and sleep; or promote a feeling of alertness and invigoration.
The oil is then applied with a rebalancing massage incorporating techniques such as muscle release, and stroking. During your treatment the oils are absorbed into the body where they go to work.
As the oils warm and vaporise you inhale you can really appreciate the aromatic balance of your blend. As you breathe in and smell the oils they begin to affect the limbic area of the brain. As this is the part that is related to our emotions and memory an aromatherapy massage treatment also gently engages the mind.
Aromatherapy massage is a truly holistic experience.
And as an added bonus: The oils stay with you after the treatment itself ends!
Your massage will take place in a warm, quiet, comfortable room. Prior to your massage you will be asked a few general health questions to ensure your safety and discuss your desired outcomes. Your answers may suggest the areas of your body on which to focus the massage.
You will be properly and respectfully covered by towels at all times for your warmth and security. As the massage progresses the work may become deeper and more specific to your needs. We always encourage an open dialogue between Client and Therapist to ensure the best possible care.
For a full body massage it is best to undress down to your underwear but please don't worry as you will be covered at all times and only the part being massaged will be uncovered.
You should always make sure you are comfortable during your massage. At any time you can move to make yourself more comfortable and relaxed. Some people like to talk whilst others like to close their eyes or fall asleep. You can also ask questions at any time.
