Humans have made and used Aromatherapy oils for over 4,000 years. Excavations throughout the world have found examples and proof of this in ancient written records, relics and stills.   Over the centuries the benefits of using plants and oils have played an important part in our lives.  For instance even modern medications namely Aspirin (tree bark) and Digoxin (foxgloves) originally made from plants.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. As a result of adding other richer carrier oils ie. Calendula enhances the blend.  Besides, the Neuromuscular techniques used, aid the absorption of the essential oils.

Aromatherapy therapy treatments

3 treatments to choose from, a full-body, a part treatment and a pamper party or event.  It is advisable to fill a client form before your first treatment and submit it to me.  Or contact me so that you can have your initial consultation over the phone.  This gives us more treatment time when we actually meet.

A Full Aromatherapy Treatment:

Generally, as a rule, 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 and the neuromuscular techniques.  I will also use other tools, accelerators, for example, either hot stones / hot water bottle, the nova sonic.  These increase the absorption rate of the essential oils.

A Part  Aromatherapy Treatment:

Choose a treatment from the part treatments list.  Back, neck & shoulders;  Runners Legs;  Face, neck and head massage, Seated Massage.  The treatment lasts 30 minutes, the massage takes 20 minutes with 10 minutes for consultation, undressing and dressing.  This treatment includes your chosen massage and the blend made specifically for you. Because we need to improve the absorption rate of the oils, I use neuromuscular techniques and often 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, I need to know important information about yourself, allergies, medication, medical history.  Because we do not have long together, the massage takes 10 to 15 minutes.  Frequently we may only have 20 minutes in total time together.

If you have not been to see me previously please fill in a new client form. Before your treatment and you come to see me I will contact you by phone for a chat.  As a result of this consultation, times cut down 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 for example peppermint interferes with some antipsychotics drugs.  Some oils can lower blood sugars this raises concerns in such conditions as diabetes.

During Treatment

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, then carried around the body.   The neuromuscular technique stimulates the nerve endings causing vasodilation, this increases their absorption rate.  Other tools that help with absorption, Hot stones, heat lamp, hot water bottle and a Nova Sonic.   As a rule, all of these used to increase blood flow, vasodilation and therefore also aid absorption.

Post Treatment

  • After every treatment its advisable to take timeout, at least half an hpur to an hour.  This time goves the body a chance to settle and for healing to take place.
  • 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 after an aromatherapy treatment, laboratories find most oils after 30 minutes present.
