What to expect during a treatment
At the beginning of the first treatment I would need to take any relevant information about your current state of health and wellbeing. From the information gathered, I will be able to blend essential oils that are suited to you on that particular day. It is important that the scent of the blend chosen is one that you like, so you will be asked to participate in choosing oils. Once you are happy with the blend it can be combined with a carrier oil to create the perfect massage oil for you. Each treatment thereafter, I will ask if there have been any changes to your health and again we would choose oils to suit you.
I will leave you to get undressed at the beginning of all treatments.
There are two massage options available; Back, Neck and Shoulders (half hour) or Full Body Massage (one hour)
Back Neck and Shoulders
You will need to remove clothes to your waist and loosening your skirt or trousers, and I will use a towel to protect your clothing from any oils.
The removal of all clothes (except underwear or shorts) will be required and a towel will be provided to cover you. You will need to be able to initially lie face down, but I will ask you to turn over halfway through the treatment and I will ensure a towel will cover you at all times.
Once the massage begins I will ask if the pressure is ok, if at any time during the massage you feel that the pressure needs to change, just let me know and it can be adjusted.
At the end of the treatment you will be offered a glass of water and then left to gently get up and to get dressed.
Benefits of Aromatherapy Massage
There are many benefits to having an Aromatherapy massage; some of the Essential Oils are absorbed into your skin and bloodstream during a massage but much of the essential oils are inhaled and absorbed through the mouth and nose combining physiological and psychological interaction on the body. Skin conditions can be improved as certain essential oils have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and Cytophylactic (tissue regenerator) properties.
Other benefits include:
· Relaxes tired muscles
· Stimulates blood circulation
· Relieves tension headaches
· Reduces blood pressure
· Boosts immune, respiratory and circulatory systems
...and much more
