Aromatherapy is a beautifully relaxing massage incorporating the use of essential oils, naturally extracted from flowers, trees and herbs. Consisting of long, flowing movements over the muscles of the body, prepare to let your inhibitions go and clear your mind for this truly wonderful experience!

First discovered by the ancient Greeks and Egyptians, Aromatherapy was used not only for its embalming and aromatic qualities, but for its healing benefits too. It was first introduced in modern times by Rene Gattefosse in 1928 after he badly burnt his hand whilst working in his lab. The only cooling substance he could find to dip his hand into was a tub of Lavender oil. To his astonishment his hand quickly healed and scarring was extremely minimal and so..modern Aromatherapy was born!

It is well documented that pleasant smells create a general sense of well-being, which is why conflict is less likely in a scented room than in a room less odorised! Aromatherapy works on the same principle. The essential oils enter the body by inhalation and absorption through the pores of the skin. The aromatic signals are then sent to the limbic system of the brain, subtly impacting the mind and emotions, thus promoting a sense of inner calm and relaxation.
