Bringing out your inner well-being!
FOR THE FEET
What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic oils or essential oils that are extracted from aromatic plant materials which are then used in treatments to promote and maintain physical and emotional health and well-being.
What is an Essential Oil?
Aromatic oils or Essential oils are concentrated liquid that contains natural volatile aroma compounds which are extracted or distilled from Trees, leaves, bark, flowers, stems, roots, seeds or other elements of the plant. Using essential oils has benefits to the physical and emotional health and well-being which aims to target the cause of any imbalance within the body, rather than just suppressing the symptoms. Certain oils have properties which enable the body to be restored back to a state of homeostasis or balance and many essential oils are also particularly good at stimulating the immune system. Thereby thus reducing the frequency of coughs, colds, infections and stomach upsets, this enables both the therapist and client to benefit from regular use of oils.
Treatments are by appointment only.
How do these Essential oils work?
Aromatic oils or Essential oils are most effective through absorption of the skin and inhalation when used within treatments.
The tiny aromatic molecules are absorbed through the pores of the skin where it enters in to the blood stream taking the properties of the oils in to organs and areas of the body.
Inhalation of the aromatic molecules, when used within the treatments, triggers the olfactory nerve which activates parts of the brain through receptor sites, one of which is the Limbic system that is responsible for our emotions and memories. Inhalation of the Essential oils can have effects on our psychological well-being.
Essential oils can be used within your Reflexology treatments giving you that extra treat for the feet. I would use a synergistic blend of a few of my chosen 13 Essential oils with a carrier oil to meet your needs to bring out your inner well-being and a feeling of relaxation.
Aromatherapy for the feet treatment is aimed for total relaxation and an overall feeling of well-being. This would include a lower leg and foot massage with some reflexes included. This treatment would last 30 Minutes so is great for when your time is limited.
