What can I say about Aromatherapy? - Too much for a short blog post that's for sure!
I use Essential oils daily - In my bath, shower, skin care & diffusers.
There are so many beautiful oils out there - & also some pretty vile ones too! (Citronella anyone?).
Aromatherapy is a very personal choice. It is not just about the scent, but the many values the oils have to the body systems, from Stress relief, to insect repellent From easing Insomnia to helping reduce symptoms of cold & flu.
Many people request an Aromatherapy massage, but really they are looking for a deep tissue massage with nice smelling oils - That can be accommodated, and the oils will always be chosen personally, on the day of treatment, depending on what is going on with the client.
A true Aromatherapy massage however, is the most relaxing, blissful treat! In most massages, oils assist the hands of the therapist to manipulate muscle tissue.
With Aromatherapy massage, the hands assist the oils to work their magic! It's a very hypnotic process.

Effleurage! - It's one of my favourite words! - "A form of massage involving circular, stroking movements made with the palm of the hand."
Effleurage is the movement we use at the start and end of each massage and even in between!
It's gentle, relaxing & soothing. We use Effleurage when we apply the oil to th3 body and it helps us warm up skin and muscle tissue prior to incorporating deeper movements.
