Aromatherapy Massage: What To Expect

On arrival a consultation will be carried out to find out about your health and well being; this will highlight any focus areas as well as deciding how to adapt the treatment specifically to your needs. It also allows you to ask any questions you may have as well as allowing the therapist to determine whether a treatment is suitable. (Treatment may be unsuitable due to some medical conditions, please see contraindications page for more details).

The therapist will discuss with you what blend of oils will suit you best, the essential oils chosen will depend upon your needs for that day. Usually between 2 and 3 oils are selected to work harmoniously creating the perfect aroma and sense of well being for that particular treatment.

You will be able to change in a private, screened area, once you are on the massage couch the therapist will freshen your feet and ensure you are comfortable.

A massage may last for 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes. A 30 or 60 minute massage will focus on either one or two areas such as the back, neck and shoulders or arms, shoulders and face. A full body treatment needs a minimum of 60 minutes as the back, legs, feet, arms, hands, neck, shoulders, face and scalp are massaged.

At the end of the treatment you will be able to dress and then take a seat to have some water before going back out into the world.

It is important after using photosensitive essential oils on the skin to avoid being in direct sunlight or using a sunbed as this could lead to burning or sensitisation.
