Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy has its roots in the most ancient of healing practices dating back to 5000BC. This ancient form of holistic therapy uses the healing properties of essential oils which are applied to the skin by means of specific relaxing massage movements. The aromatherapy oils are selected and blended to suit the client’s individual needs with numerous physical and psychological problems being improved.
