Aromatherapy, massage & reflexology
Please read on to find out more about the therapies I offer.
Massage Massage is an ancient and modern practice used throughout the world. It involves manipulating the soft tissues of the body and has been traditionally offered to encourage well being, relaxation, general health, aid recovery from injury and alleviate symptoms of disease. The massage I offer is a traditional Swedish massage which uses a combination of massage techniques using plain base oils such as almond, grapeseed or apricot oils.
Aromatherapy Aromatherapy massage uses aromatic natural plant oils (essential oils) chosen for their unique properties. The fragrant essential oils enhance the effect of the massage and are chosen according to their unique properties. After an initial consultation to find out more about your needs I will select oils to suit you and blend them into a vegetable base oil so they can be applied during the massage. The benefits of massage include: increased relaxation, release of tension, improved sleep, improved mood and increased well being.
Reflexology Reflexology is an ancient therapy based on the principle that all organs and systems in our bodies connect to specific reflex points on the feet or hands. More than just a foot massage the treatment involves a specialized thumb and finger massage working on the pressure points on your feet which correspond to all other areas of the body. The benefits of reflexology include increased relaxation, improved mood, release of tension, increased well being and improved sleep. This gentle therapy is ideally suited to both adults and children.
