Aromatherapy Massage is exactly what the name implies. It is massage with aroma (essential oils). The essential oils are selected by the therapist based on the type of treatment you want and the information given in your consultation such as your skin type, medical history, health condition etc. The oils are absorbed into the body and enter the bloodstream and lymphatic system. The massage often brings a state of deep relaxation along with the inhalation of the scents from the essential oils which combined bring a sense of well being.
Essential oils have different properties and may provide relief from a number of symptoms such as:
* muscular pain/tension (e.g back, neck, shoulders) * digestive problems * stress
* anxiety * depression * skin care * circulation problems * fatigue * headaches/migraines
* hormonal problems * sleep problems * general well being
As massage releases toxins back into the system it is important to drink plenty of water following a treatment to aid the process of elimination. It is also important to rest and relax after a treatment and note any changes or reactions experienced before coming for your next treatment.
HOT STONE MASSAGE THERAPY
Through applying warm, smooth stones to key areas of the body we can penetrate heat into the deeper layers of muscles, we also use gentle massage techniques with the stones to work through tenstion and relieve pain as well as careful stone placement on targeted areas or trigger points. The heat is a comfortable temperature and is always checked with the client before starting. This a deeply relaxing therapy which may provide some clients who suffer with ongoing aches pains relief for some time after.
INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
This a ancient form of massage therapy which has been practised for thousands of years. Using massage and stretching techniqies we are able to release tension from the head, neck,shoulders and face as well as toxins leaving you with a feeling of wellbeing and relaxation.This therapy may be particularly beneficial for people who sufer with tension headaches, neck pain or migraines as well as anxiety and depression.
SPORTS/ DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
This is a firmer treatment aimed for people requiring a massage which gets to work on the deeper layer of muscles for more chronic muscle tension. Not just for people who are in sports; many people who suffer with tight muscles and knots or ongoing back, neck or shoulder issues benefit from a regular sports massage.
