Aromatherapy explained simply a massage performed using a blend of 3 essential oils.
At Jacksfeet each blend is Unique!
Humans have made and used Aromatherapy oils for over 4,000 years. Throughout the world, excavated ancient written records, relics and stills exist. Over the centuries the benefits of using plants and oils have played an important part in our lives. Even modern medications namely Aspirin (tree bark) and Digoxin (foxgloves) originally made from plants. Their properties help control the bodies optimal functions of all the systems. Especially when used alongside conventional medicine.
Making the blend
Whilst talking to me, I’m listening to you. Analysing what you’re saying, I’ll ask you questions. To confirm I have heard correctly, from this gathered information I make a blend specifically for you. The base oils (carrier oils) I use are mainly Almond, Grapeseed or coconut. By adding other richer carrier oils enhances the blend. The Neuromuscular techniques used, aid the absorption of the essential oils.
Aromatherapy therapy treatments
This Treatment lasts an hour. You receive 45 – 50 minutes of massage, plus 10 to 15 minutes for consultation, undressing and dressing. You receive a full-body Ultimate massage, using the unique Aromatherapy blend made for you. I will also use neuromuscular techniques and other tools, for example, either hot stones / hot water bottle.
Choose a treatment from the part treatments list. Back, neck & shoulders; Runners Legs; Face, neck and head massage. The treatment lasts 30 minutes, the massage takes 20minutes with 10 minutes for consultation, undressing and dressing. This treatment includes your chosen massage, the blend made specifically for you. Because we need to improve the absorption rate of the oils, I will use neuromuscular techniques and a heat source.
Pamper Party & Events Treatment:
I use pre-blended oils for this purpose, using only safe oils. You have a choice between a Relaxing; Nurturing; Energising or a Grounding blend. Chosen by smelling only 3 of the blends, then choose the one you most like. In blends, I use oils known for their hypoallergenic properties. Usually grapeseed and coconut for base oils. Here’s an example of essential oils used lavender, niaouli, orange, mandarin, tea tree. At events, important information about yourself, allergies, medication medical history. Because we do not have long together, the massage takes 10 to 15 minutes. Often only have 20 minutes in total time together.
If you have not been to see me before please fill in a new client form. Before you come to see me I will contact you by phone for a chat. This cuts down consultation time greatly and gives more time for the treatment. All the information I will need is on the form. I must know what medication you are on. Medical conditions you have. Your Allergies and their triggers. Aromatherapy essential oils can affect medications and raise concerns in such conditions as diabetes.
For absorption to take place easily I make sure you are warm but not sweating. The essential oils enter the body via the skin and absorbed into the bloodstream. The neuromuscular technique stimulates the nerve endings causing vasodilation. Tools that help with absorption, Hot stones, heat lamp, hot water bottle and a Nova Sonic. Used to increase blood flow, vasodilation and therefore aid absorption.
Once the treatment has finished, leave it at least half an hour to two hours before you bathe. This will give ample time for the skin to have absorbed the oils. Blood tests when taken post an aromatherapy treatment, laboratories find most oils after 30 minutes present.
