Aromatherapy Massage in Blandford, Dorset
Aromatherapy massage is the most relaxing massage therapy of all. There is no deep tissue work involved, just relaxing strokes designed to soothe the sensory nerve endings, improve sleep, increase lymphatic drainage, increase circulation, reduce fatigue and enhance the overall sense of wellbeing.
A carrier oil like sweet almond, grapeseed or jojoba is used to which a few drops of essential oils are added. Each blend is unique to the individual and a thorough consultation is carried out beforehand to establish the client’s needs for example to address skin conditions like psoriasis or eczema, respiratory conditions like asthma, coughs and bronchitis, nervous conditions like anxiety, depression or insomnia/mental fatigue, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, poor circulation etc. Over 50 essential oils can be selected from and each is absorbed by the skin thus aiding in healing the affected area. The client has an opportunity to smell and select from a variety of oils suitable for the condition to come up with a blend individually tailored to them. There is no use of pre-blended oils, just those chosen by the client on the day. Each blend has its own individual aroma, the scent of which enhances the massage experience for the client.
