"Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of plant-derived, aromatic essential oils to promote physical and psychological well-being." 


In July 2014 I completed ITEC Level 3 Aromatherapy Certificate and am now able to offer holistic massage treatments incorporating beneficial essential oils.  

Use of essential oils is not new; Ancient Egyptians, Chinese, Vedics, Romans, Greeks and Arabs are just some of the civilisations who have employed the use of essential oils, plants and herbs for the purposes of healing, religious ceremonies and pleasure.

The treatment is not just about 'aroma', although this is a very effective in stimulating areas of our brain linked to memory and emotion, it is also about the effects the oils can have on us physically as they penetrate deep into the skin and into our bloodstream, whether they be anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-bacterial or a host of other properties.
