What is Holistic Aromatherapy
The use of plant essence in the form of essential oils, extracted from plants, fruits, flowers, bark, roots or resin. These aromatic substances have a number of physiological and psychological properties.
In Holistic Aromatherapy the main method of application is through the skin, by massaging in a blend of essential oils and a carrier/massage oil. Each treatment and massage blend is unique, tailored to the specific needs of the person at that time. The combination of massage and the therapeutical qualities of the essential oils (inhaled through the nose and absorbed through the skin) can relieve stress and revitalise, uplift the spirit, boost the immune system and encourage the body's own healing process.

Visiting your Therapist
Please allow an extra 30 minutes for your first appointment to go through a confidential questionnaire, in order to give an accurate picture of your health, lifestyle and medical background. This will also give you the opportunity to ask questions and voice any concerns you may about the treatment.
The term 'Holistic' is derived from the Greek word "holos", meaning "whole", and as such aims to treat the whole individual, incorporating body, mind and spirit. This means that the whole person will be treated rather than concentrating on specific symptoms and problem areas.
