Aromatherapy Massage with Essential Oils.Aromatherapy can be applied in many different ways. In times of stress, however, the most effective therapy is an aromatherapy massage. This is a wonderfully relaxing massage that uses massage oils blended with aromatic essential oils to great effect. Each essential oil has its own therapeutic properties and your therapist will suggest particular oils based on information gathered during the consultation.

It’s fascinating to note the ways in which aromatic molecules are absorbed into our bodies: through the skin and from there directly into the bloodstream; via nerve endings in the nose to the brain, evoking emotions and memories; through inhalation into the lungs and from there directly into the bloodstream. Essential oils work their magic through a surprising number of channels. There are a number of ways in which you can self-administer essential oils, for example, in a moisturiser or body lotion, a few drops in a bath or in an oil burner. But be aware that these are powerful potions and should be treated with respect, so if in doubt consult an expert.

Body Massage Treatments.The benefits of massage almost go without saying, as most of us intuitively know that a good massage is very beneficial. Your therapist will adapt your treatment to suit your needs, for example make it gentle or vigorous, or focus on specific parts of the body where you may be holding tension. We all have those, shoulders and mid-back are typical. These are some of the specific benefits:

  • Can be deeply relaxing, invigorating, or both, depending on the massage movements used.
  • Improves blood and lymph circulation, aiding removal of toxins and conditions such as water retention.
  • Relaxes and tones muscles.
  • Reduces muscle tension and can help with injuries such as muscle strains.
  • Removes dead skin.
  • Improves skin and hair condition.
  • Improves mental and emotional well-being.

Foot Reflexology Treatments.Foot Reflexology is a fascinating treatment, one that a lot of people still see as simply a foot massage. It is, however, so much more than that. Each foot has on it 7,000-7,200 nerve endings which correspond to different areas of the body. Considerable work over time has enabled maps of the feet to be drawn which define the areas of the feet that need to be stimulated (using specific massage movements) to have a positive effect on the corresponding body system. Apart from most of the benefits mentioned for massage, regular reflexology is great for insomnia as it has an overall balancing and calming effect. By dispelling blockages in the nervous system it also encourages the body’s ability to heal itself and restores energy balance.
