I have been practising as a complementary therapist since 1996, after spending twenty-two years in the teaching profession. As a practitioner I aim to support the body's own innate healing system in its work. I believe that complementary therapies have an important role to play, not only in improving health, but in maintaining it also. Much of my work helps clients to relax and break the cycle of stress from which they suffer. Deep relaxation encourages healing and re-energising.
Aromatherapy is the art of blending and using essential plant oils to benefit health. Essential oils form the life force of plants, and can be used for a wide variety of different physical and mental issues (such as Orange for anger and short tempers, or Tea Tree for acne).
Oils are extracted from different plants, and are then diluted in a vegetable "carrier" oil to enter the system through the skin in your massage. The oils reach the body organs via the circulation and promote healing. They are inhaled during the session stimulating the brain to release enzymes that can have a profound effect on the client's well-being.
Massage is the best way of distributing these oils, although they can also be used in baths, inhalations, vaporization and compresses, too.
In your session I will help you choose the right oils that will work for your individual physical and emotional needs. Light sweeping, gliding and cross-friction movements are used similar to those in the Swedish massage.
The inhalation and absorption of these oils which have powerful therapeutic properties can even help with problems such as arthritis, PMS, insomnia and headaches. They can also promote a sense of well being, reduce toxins and relieve muscle ache.
Book in for a session and exhale your stresses away.
