What is Aromatherapy Massage?
Aromatherapy Massage combines the use of aromatherapy oils chosen specifically for each client with a gentle and meditative massage treatment in order to improve mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. Essential oils are extracted from plants and retain all of the plant’s therapeutic properties. Each essential oil has different constituents and oils can be selected to benefit the individual.
What are the Benefits of Aromatherapy Massage?
From my experience, clients who come to me for aromatherapy massage are generally needing a more relaxing massage that can help with stress, anxiety and depression. Other benefits of using aromatherapy oils in massage are:
- Back pain
- Premenstrual tension
- Digestive disorders
- Morning sickness
- Soothe pregnancy niggles
I am very selective of which aromatherapy products I use within my massage practice and after many years of trying different brands and products, I always go back to Neal's Yard essential oils and Songbird naturals massage wax. These products use only the highest quality natural ingredients and wherever possible they do use organic. For example, the folks behind the Songbird company use Fine AOP Lavender from a specific family farm in Haute 'd Alps in France for their Lavender Massage Wax, Lavender Reflexology Wax and Women's Blend. Neal's Yard are well known for creating award-winning natural and organic health and skincare products, using the highest possible percentage of organic ingredients as they are kinder to the earth – and kinder to you.
I combine my knowledge for aromatherapy oils with my therapeutic massage to create a treatment that’s right for you.
What to Expect
Before your first treatment, I will go through an initial consultation form with you in order to establish any contraindications and expected outcomes of treatment. Your treatments may need to be adapted depending on this information.
Your massage will last around 30 to 90 minutes depending on whether you have a back massage or full body massage. After the initial consultation I will give you time to undress privately and lie down on the massage table, where you may cover yourself with fresh towels that I provide. You will never be completely exposed at any point; I will uncover one part at a time depending on the area I am massaging. If you have any concerns then please do not hesitate to speak to me throughout the treatment.
I like to play relaxing massage therapy music during my massage treatments, as it can help you to relax and unwind. However, please let me know if you would prefer not to have this. My aim is for you to be comfortable, relaxed and content in order to get the most out of your treatment.
After your massage you should feel relaxed and may feel sleepy, so it is important to give yourself plenty of time to unwind. Make the most of having every muscle in your body gently stretched and smoothed out. Please drink plenty of water after your massage in order to help your body eliminate any toxins released from the muscles.
