Aromatherapy is the external use of essential oils in holistic treatments to improve physical and emotional well-being. Essential oils, extracted from plants, possess distinctive therapeutic properties, which can be utilised to improve health and prevent disease. It is especially effective in treating stress-related problems and a variety of chronic conditions. Aromatherapy massage is found to be helpful in reducing stress, anxiety and tension thereby improving sleep and relaxation.
Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary health therapy based on the theory that the systems and organs of the whole body are mirrored or reflected on different points on the feet. Thus by working across these areas reflexology can be effective in promoting deep relaxation and wellbeing by helping the body restore its balance naturally. It is usual, after a treatment, for tension levels to be reduced and for you to feel more relaxed. You may also notice an improvement in sleep, your mood and sense of wellbeing. There may be other improvements too but these will usually be on an individual basis.
