Aromatherapy is the art of combining pure essential oils (natural plant extracts) for use in various therapeutic ways.
Most people will find that they enjoy very deep relaxation during the treatment and this, together with the actions of the essential oils, can be most beneficial for stress and emotionally related illnesses, such as muscle tension, headaches and anxiety.
After an initial consultation, the therapist will decide on the best combination of oils for the individual and how best to apply them. This can include:
- Therapeutic massage
- Inhalations and vapourisation
- Creams and lotions
