Aromatherapy and Remedial Massage

 

 

Aromatherapy massage

Experience bringing about deep relaxation and a sense of well-being. It is very relaxing and soothing and at the same time restores muscular tone increases the efficiency of the lymphatic system. Massage is a very effective way of allowing the body to start the healing process as toxic waste and excess fluid is eliminated and balance can be restored. Most people report and feeling of ‘lightness’ and clarity after treatment as this is a holistic therapy and treats mind, body and spirit.

 

Remedial Massage - holistic - therapeutic oils in combination

As a therapist I like to work in a way that is intuitive and may include other therapies and techniques where I feel they will enhance the Aromatherapy treatment. For example if  there are sore tight area's that require acupressure, skin rolling or a deep tissue form of massage (Remedial massage).  I will include this where I know that it will benefit you.

How Aromatherapy works

Essential oils smell delightful and have psychological as well as physical effects. When inhaled they effect the olfactory epithelium which contains about 20million nerve endings. The odour transmutes into a nerve message which is amplified by the olfactory bulb, it can then enter the limbic system in the brain. Oils effect the brain to produce the release of chemical messengers i.e. endorphins, serotonin and noradrenalin. When inhaled the oil molecules also pass through the lungs and into the bloodstream. The skin can also absorb essential oil because the molecules (no more than 30 carbon atoms) are small enough to pass into the interstitial fluid so they tonify the lymphatic system, decongest and improve circulation to bring relief from many conditions.  

Other applications Other ways of using essential oils include, steam inhalation, diffuser (with nebuliser), compresses and orally. In France doctors may prescribe them capsule form for internal use or as pesseries to treat conditions such as enlarged prostate.

Aromatic Alchemy

Many people know how to use essential oils for various ailments, but a skilled and well trained Aromatherapist knows their medicinal properties and chemical make up and is able to understand how they work, how to apply them and how to combine and mix them to the best effect. 

Conditions reported to benefit from aromatherapy:

Sinus, back pain, headaches, stress, depression, muscular aches and pains, skin problems, PMT, menopausal symptoms, lymphatic congestion, chest infections, yeast infections, catarrh, nervous tension, toothache - most aches (ie peppermint oil). Helpful for mental fatigue, exhaustion. Uplifting and helpful when studying for exams. Coughs, throat problems, dry skin, ulcers (skin) and so much more.  Aromatic oils are in 'essence' exquisite fragrance and soothing medicine that relax and uplift mind body and spirit!

To gain the best results, it is recommended that the client has a series of treatments as prescribed and then returns now and again for general maintenance.
