|Aromatherapy is a gentle massage using essential oils to improve physical and emotional well-being. There are many essential oils, each having their own therapeutic properties and the benefits and effects of an aromatherapy massage is wide ranging. The blending of essential oils is an art which requires a good working knowledge of the effects, characteristics and therapeutic properties of the oils that our pratitioners specialise in.
Whilst aromatherapy massage uses many of the techniques used during holistic massage, it is less vigorous and is usually performed more slowly. It also includes specialised techniques such as attention to pressure points and lymphatic drainage. Our Aromatherapists may suggest different ways to use specific essential oils at home so that you can prolong the effects of each treatment or they may make up a blend specifically for you to use at home.
At our clinics
in West London, we offer sessions lasting 60 minutes.
In order to achieve long term benefits, a course of treatments should be taken so that clients are having weekly sessions.
