Deep tissue massage can help to release tension and separate muscle fibres that have become stuck together. This relieves muscle aches and pains, together with any related symptoms. It also frees up movement and has a general stress relieving effect. If there are soft tissue injuries, then massage can promote healing by flushing the area with fresh blood.
Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils from plants to benefit health and well being. Essential oils have various health benefits, depending on which plant they come from. Unlike many alternative therapies, aromatherapy has a basis in science. It’s well established that the chemical components of the oils have beneficial properties. In fact, some oils are used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals. Blending oils that complement each other increases the benefits. I have a range of aromatherapy massage blends that I can use in my treatments if the client wishes.
