What is Holistic Aromatherapy Massage
Holistic aromatherapy massage uses essential oils to activate your sense of smell and increase your sense of well-being. The blend of oils are massaged into your skin by Susan to give a smooth and flowing massage, designed to instil a sense of relaxation and calm. Every session is tailored towards you, your health and your mood at the time, so every massage is unique.
The essential oils used in aromatherapy are powerful and are extracted from plants, shrubs, flowers, bark, peel, resin, grasses, fruits, roots, trees, petals, stems or seeds. Only a small amount of essential oil is needed, and is blended with a larger amount of another "carrier" oil (such as grapeseed or almond oil) and used on the skin.
The most frequently used essential oils include camomile, lavender, rosemary and tea-tree.
