Aromatherapy is a caring, hands on therapy which seeks to induce relaxation, to increase energy, to reduce the effects of stress and to restore lost balance to mind, body and soul.
The word aromatherapy is derived from two words aroma meaning ‘smell’ and therapy which stands for ‘healing’. Aromatherapy is an ancient science, that uses the pure essence of plants for therapeutic purposes. Pure essential oils have been used in fragrances and medicines for thousands of years. Using gentle massage, essential oils are absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin. Aromatherapists practice holistically (treating the whole person) and will find oils that suit you physically and emotionally.
