What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from
flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance
psychological and physical well-being.
A form of alternative medicine, aromatherapy is gaining momentum. It is
used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood
enhancement and increased cognitive function.
We are advised not to carry out Aromatherapy and or Thai Foot and Hand
Massage during pregnancy .
Indian Head Massage is OK after 1st trimester, caution needs to be
observed if heavily pregnant as it can cause dizziness and fainting .
Reiki is safe throughout pregnancy, we have proven results with better
sleeping babies after Reiki sessions too :-)

How Does it work?
"An aromatherapy blend can be thought of as a "symphony in scent". Essential oils like Lemon, Tangerine and Bergamot supply ephemeral "top notes" similar to the top notes created by flutes, violin, or silver bells. Cedarwood and Sandalwood essential oils are deep and resonant. They can supply the "base note" quality, similar to base notes supplied by the base, drum, tuba, or cello in an orchestra. Other essential oils, like Ginger and Rosemary, are considered to be "middle notes" and they help to form the body of the composition. Thoughtful and intuitive blending of essential oil fragrances, informed by aromatherapy science and tradition, can result in new, unique, and inspiring blends that soothe and satisfy mind and body on the deepest levels. That's what our mind balms are all about."
Aromatherapy treatments have both physiological and psychological effects. The combination of massage and the medicinal and therapeutic qualities of the essential oils (molecules both inhaled [aroma] and absorbed through the skin) can soothe, re-vitalise, uplift the spirit, encourage positive thinking and boost the immune system enabling the body to heal itself.
Physiological Benefits – Aromatherapy massage can:
enhance lymphatic drainage – this helps to reduce fluid retention and prevent oedema
induce a feeling of deep relaxation in the body
help to restore balance in the body
stimulate the body’s natural immune system
increase the oxygen and nutrient supply to the tissues by increasing the blood circulation
help to increase energy levels as blockages and congestion in the nerves are eased
Psychological Benefits – Aromatherapy massage can:
promote a general state of well-being
calm and soothe the mind
help to reduce nervous tension
help to lift the mood and reduce feelings of depression

Listen to the 'Breathing Track'
we use to regulate breathing with.
Breathe in through the nose for a gentle count of three to your Hara (Stomach) rather than lungs, then breathe out of the mouth as if you were fogging a mirror or glass for a gentle count of three / four to ensure you have fully exhaled. If you feel odd / unwell return to your natural breathing pattern. Seek medical advice if it persists.
