Aromatherapy is the holistic science of choosing, blending and applying essential oils from plants to heal conditions of disharmony and imbalance in an individual.
Essential oils are volatile substances extracted from aromatic flowers, leaves, fruit, roots, bark, and stems. They can be distilled, expressed, macerated or solvent extracted. Essential oils can be used in many ways: as a vaporiser, in baths, compresses, poultices, inhalers and through massage.
Aromatherapy massage utilises the techniques of acupressure points, soft tissue manipulation, lymphatic drainage, reflex points and energy balance. With the use of essential oils the client’s muscular and nervous system relax, and any pain caused by stress and strain on the body are relieved.
The first session will begin with a short consultation (approximately ten minutes), where we will discuss your general health, medical conditions and any essential oils you like and dislike. A blend of essential oils is then tailor made specifically for you. Elizabeth may give you further home treatments to continue helping the healing process. Home treatments may include vaporisers, compresses and/or poultices.
