Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy. It uses the basis of Swedish massage techniques and a blend of essential oils, mixed with either a base carrier oil or cream. It is designed that during the treatment the oils used will penetrate in through the skin and are absorbed into the bloodstream to circulate around the body. The inhalation through the nose also stimulates and enhances the experience throughout the body using the limbic system. Essential oils have many therapeutic benefits and may help in a number of ways such as helping you to relax, stress relief, energise, stimulate, help with sluggish digestion and so much more.
