Aromatherapy and its therapeutic benefits can be traced back thousands of years to the Ancient Egyptians. The modern day philosophical approach to aromatherapy using plant essential oils to treat you, reflects the “holistic” principle of helping to maintain a balance of mind, body and emotions.
Essential oils which are extracted from plants contain unique healing properties and incorporating them into a gentle massage, can help to improve health and well-being. Aromatherapy can have a powerful effect on all of the body’s systems, including our muscular, respiratory, circulatory and nervous systems.
When we inhale an essential oil, through the olfactory system (our sense of smell), the body’s limbic system (controls emotions) responds which can activate strong emotional responses such as happiness, pleasure, memory or even pain or anger. This can occur within minutes of the essential oil’s molecules entering the bloodstream.
Psychologically, aromatherapy can have a profound effect on the body’s systems and can induce deep relaxation and/or stimulate energy levels; relieves stress, anxiety and nervous tension; encourages better sleeping patterns; helps release endorphins and bring a sense of well-being; releases negative emotions/blockages stored in the body; brings mental clarity/focus and provide feelings of self-worth and nurturing.
In a typical aromatherapy session, Angela will carry out a full consultation, during which we will discuss your medical history, lifestyle and concerns. Oils will be carefully selected, creating a bespoke blend for your individual needs. You will be asked to undress down to your underwear and lie down whilst your chosen oils are massaged into your skin. During your therapy, towels are used to maintain your modesty at all times.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience of the course of aromatherapy massages which has definitely had an impact. I have previously had trouble sleeping/disturbed sleep and I have been sleeping much better over the course of massages I have had with Angela. I also found them a wonderful de-stress after busy days at work. I have been impressed with Angela's professionalism and the care she takes to select the appropriate oils to suit my individual needs for each separate session.
I've had the pleasure of receiving both an aromatherapy massage (twice!) and Indian Head Massage from Angela, and loved every second of both treatments. Following a thorough consultation Angela designs the massage to suit your individual needs, whether you want to feel invigorated or relaxed. Aromatherapy oils leave you smelling divine, and again are chosen on an individual basis to bring maximum benefit. Angela's in-depth knowledge in her subject mean you can be totally confident in everything she does. Her new treatment room is a peaceful sanctuary away from the bustle of normal routine, and I'm looking forwards to booking in again.
