Aromatherapy Combination

What is Aromatherapy Massage?

he key factor that sets aromatherapy apart from other holistic treatments is the use of essential oils, oils that have been used for thousands of years, as long ago as 2,600 BC in China. They are the essence of a plant processed into a concentrated oil form. Aromatherapy massage is a deeply relaxing form of massage using a medium of aromatic essential oils diluted in carrier oil.

As an established Aromatherapist I will consult with you and ask for the three main conditions you want to be taken into account when selecting essential oils for your treatment. For more information about how Aromatherapy can be combined with other treatments, please call and ask any questions you may have or to book your initial consultation

Some kind words from one of our clients

If you are looking for a really good sports masseur look no further. I have been one of Mick's clients as I have tried to claw back some lost fitness and he has really helped get bits of me moving I was not sure would move again. I am a full time physio and a tutor with the LSSM, the organisation that Mick did his training with and he has really honed his skills. How I wish people like Mick had been around when I was (much) younger and battling rugby, hockey and cycling injuries.
