Your Appointment

During your initial treatment a brief consultation will take place. The purpose of the consultation is to provide a medical history that will highlight aspects which may need to be rebalanced and reveal what you wish to gain from the treatment. This information will help to individually tailor your treatment to give you the best results. Anna will use this information to specially blend a mix of essential oils that will be tailor made and most beneficial to you before massaging affected areas or the whole body depending on the symptoms and treatment.

In full privacy you will then be asked to remove your clothes and relax face down on our comfortable treatment couch. A large towel or light fleece blanket will cover any parts of the body not being worked on.

Aromatherapy is a gentle massage that engages the senses. The essential oils are of the highest quality and organic where possible, they are specially tailored to you and smell divine.

Treatments can last from between 30 minutes to 1.5 hours, depending on your preference.

Aromatherapy is an ancient art of extracting essential oils from plants that possess distinctive therapeutic properties. Evidence has been found dating back to 3000BC where ancient civilisations valued the aromatic plants, woods, resin and flowers for their healing powers and the soothing and boosting effect on the mind. The French and Greek armies are also known to have used an ointment of myrrh to help treat their wounds.

How aromatherapy works

There are two ways in which the oils penetrate the body; through inhalation and absorption.

The most efficient is smell. As the nose inhales the aroma, the essential oil molecules pass through the nasal cavities via the olfactory cells, tiny little smell-sensing cells with little hairs, which attach to the nerves and transmit messages to the brain, principally to the limbic system. The limbic system deals with memory, emotions and our basic instincts and mechanical functions. At this point the brain responds by carrying messages to further parts of the body. Essential oils can affect our physiological state by altering the chemical messages and impulses that are sent around the body. Therefore, a relaxing substance found in Lavender oil may trigger the brain to relay messages of relaxation to whole or specific parts of the body which may help slow breathing rate and ease tense muscles.

By combining the healing touch of massage with the inhalation of powerful healing aromas, the essential oils can be absorbed into the blood and circulation through the water resistant skin and transported around the body. The essential oil molecules are so small that they can pass through the pores of the skins superficial layer as well as pierce through the hair follicles and sweat glands; from here they flow into the blood capillaries into the second layer of the skin when they can be distributed about the body.
