Aromatherapy is the name we use today for the ancient knowledge of healing and promoting health using using fragrant aromatic natural ingredients, spcifically plant oils  which we call essential oils.

The origins of  Aromatherapy are attributed to the Ancient Egiptians dating back to 4500B.C, and studies have revealed the vast knowledge or aromatics amongst the ancient civilisations of China, India, Arabia and Greece.

Modern Aromatherapy is a truly holistic therapy  which embraces the mind, body and spirit of a person seeking help  and takes account of their lifestyle, eating patterns etc., to promote health and well being.

Essential oils themselves are derived from a diverse range of plants  and have been described as containing the soul and vibrant energy of each plant.  They are extremely concentrated and are effective in very small amounts.  Their molecules may resemble hormones and have healing, antiseptic, antibiotic, anti inflammatory and anti-depressant properties.

Aromatherapy treatments in the Salon involves the application of high grade and quality essential oils to the individual usually by massage.  This is deeply relaxing and aids absorption of the oils through the skin into the bloodstream and assists in the elimination of  of toxins.

The treatment may also include - inhalation and compresses.   Aromatherapy may be helpful in treating:

  • anxiety, stress, fatigue and depression
  • insomnia, headaches & migraines, menopausal symptons, aches and pains.

In some instances it may be necessary for the therapist to obtain consent from your GP or consultant before commencing a course of treatment, particularly if you are diabetic, or you are on medication for high blood pressure, or if you have cancer. A skin test may be necessary  24 hours before treatment if you are asthmatic.
