What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the name given to the use of essential oils extracted from plants for therapeutic purposes. Aromatherapy massage can be used for the treatment of physical and emotional problems as well as for relaxation. The essential oils, mixed with a carrier oil, have the power to be absorbed into the body, through the skin, to work at a physical level, while the aromatic effects of each blend help to balance the mind and emotions.
My aromatherapy massage techniques adhere closely to the original principles of aromatherapy massage. The traditional aromatherapy massage, pioneered in France and brought to the UK in the 1960s uses carefully applied spinal pressures designed to target and stimulate the nervous system. Each spinal nerve supplies life energy to all tissues, glands and organs of the body. The stimulation of these nerves acts to re-balance the systems of the body affected by physical or mental stress.
Aromatherapy massage works primarily through the pathways of the Autonomic Nervous System (the system that controls and co-ordinates all the body's automatic responses, for example, digestion). Carefully applied pressures at the base of the skull, lower back and on either side of the spinal column release congestion and help to bring the process of bodily functions into balance.
