Clinical Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to maintain good health and revitalize the body, mind and spirit. Blended specifically for the client and their underlying condition, it can help bring the body back into balance, alleviate pain and uplift the spirit. Combined with therapeutic massage, which directly treats areas of pain or discomfort, it is a deeply relaxing and comforting treatment.
Treatments range from full body massage which takes approximately 1 hours to specific areas, for example hands & arms, legs and feet, head neck and shoulders, back, it is tailored to suit individual needs.
Aromatic Acupressure is the use of specific essential oils with specific acupoints & meridians to treat both physical & emotional issues. It can be incorporated into a massage or on it’s own and is deeply calming and relaxing as well as bringing release of tension and pain.
Reiki is an energetic healing method that works with the bodys natural healing ability. It taps into this inherent ability and directs healing to where it is most needed. It also removes stuck or blocked energy within the body so that a natural flow is restored.
A series of treatments would include a full consultation and diagnosis at the first session and ongoing evaluation of progress.
