Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy massage brings about feelings of good health, inner happiness and peace of mind.

Aromatherapy massage is a relaxing holistic treatment that will leave the client feeling peaceful, invigorated and refreshed. Equilibre use 100% pure Essential Oils.  Natural plant oils are recognised for their healing, cleansing, and mood enhancing properties, alongside the sheer pleasure of their fragrances. This is known as Aromatherapy, the systematic use of essential oils extracted from plants, flowers, roots and seeds. The word "aromatherapy" is derived from the two words "aroma", meaning fragrance, and "therapy", meaning treatment.

A massage not only alleviates aching muscles, it also brings about feelings of good health, inner happiness and peace of mind.

At the beginning of the aromatherapy treatment, a unique blend is tailored to the client’s individual needs by a skilled aromatherapist. The pure oils are diluted with a carrier oil and applied to the body, massaging a specific area or the whole body depending on the client’s individual requirements. Aromatherapy, when combined with massage, can alleviate aching muscles and generate feelings of good health, inner happiness and peace of mind.

Aromatherapy can boost well being, relieve stress and help refresh the body, thus improving physical and emotional health. The client is left feeling revitalised, and the oils will continue their healing properties through the olfactory senses and absorption into the skin, allowing for prolonged healing after the treatment has taken place. Regular aromatherapy treatments benefit individuals further, as oils remain in the bloodstream and the body remains free of tension.
