Aromatherapy massage uses a range of natural plant oils to enhance physical and psychological wellbeing. Distilled from a wide range of plants, the oils are absorbed through the skin. The mix of oils is carefully chosen according to your needs; the oils can be calming, stimulating, relaxing, energising and cleansing.
The use of distilled plant oils can be traced back to ancient Egypt; oils have also been used for centuries in Greece and China. In modern times, the healing properties of lavender oil were recognised during the second world war, when French physicians noted that it helped heal burns. Since then, aromatherapy has become a well-known alternative therapy.
