Aromatherapy is the use of natural, essential oils to help maintain physical, emotional and spiritual well being. It's primary uses are to calm, uplift, detoxify, de-stress and invigorate. Essential oils are extracted from aromatic plants. Each individual oil has its own chemical components and therefore, its own individual therapeutic properties. Clinical aromatherapy helps the body to help itself to regain health and is holistically therapeutic. The effects of essential oils in combination with massage can help calm and relax the whole person. Choosing the right combination of essential oils for an individual can promote health, ease pain, reduce stress, calm the mind and help balance the whole person. One hour and half hour treatments available.
THE 'M' TECHNIQUE®
The 'M' Technique® is a method of structured touch. It works on skin receptors that send signals to the brain, producing a meditative state of mind, and a feeling of deep relaxation. It has been described as physical hypnotherapy. It differs from conventional massage. Less pressure is used, it is more gentle and rhythmic, and is suitable even for the most fragile of people. A full body 'M' Technique® treatment lasts approximately 50 minutes. The ‘M’ Technique® is effective for anyone suffering from anxiety, and any stress related conditions.
