About Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the controlled use of essential oils by different methods to enhance the well-being of the mind, body and spirit.  It uses pure essences from plants, which may have a preventative effect, helping to care for common ailments while working alongside medical treatment in the healing process.  Essential oils are highly fragrant, volatile and are extracted from flowers, leaves, twigs, bark, roots and fruits of many common plants. The essential oils have many different properties and as research has shown, can be stimulating, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, relaxing, calming, soothing and uplifting.  Aromatherapy, therefore, has the ability to affect the emotions, promote bodily well-being and balance psychologically.

Aromatherapy is the perfect massage to ease out the stresses of the day and relax both mind and body.

About Sports Massage

To benefit from a sports massage you do not need to be a sports performer.  Sports massage can also relieve many day-to-day problems that everyone experiences.
