Aromatherapy is a truly holistic therapy, taking account of the mind, body and spirit of the person seeking help, as well as their lifestyle, eating patterns, relationships etc. My Occupational Therapy experience, knowledge and skills, will further enhance the Holistic assessment and treatment approach; through my understanding of medical conditions, symptoms and their impact on your daily life. Occupational Therapy will also address the whole person, taking account of every area of their lives, that are impacted on, by their health condition. Aroma and OT therefore dovetail beautifully, to ensure your needs are met, to help you manage a full and purposeful life.
Aromatherapy is enormously beneficial to help manage stress related conditions, symptoms of physical, psychological illnesses, as well as improving general well being. Where possible I use Neal’s Yard Remedies organic essential oils, or other ethically sourced oils, in treatments.
Aromatherapy is the art and science, of using plant essential oils in treatment.
Each essential oil has its own special therapeutic properties and can be used in a variety of ways. For example, diluted in the bath, steam inhalation, vaporiser, diffuser, in creams/lotions or in a compress.
Massage is an excellent way to apply essential oils; not only will you receive the therapeutic benefits of the essential oils, through inhalation, you will also benefit from the massage itself; greatly increasing the healing potential of Aromatherapy. Aromatherapy massage, is carried out using gentle relaxing techniques and lymphatic drainage techniques, which aid absorption of the oils and facilitate detoxification of the body.
Areas for massage will be down to personal preferences; these include, the head, back, legs, feet, abdomen, arms, hands, décolleté or torso (men), neck and face.
A full consultation is required, as part of the treatment, prior to massage and essential oils will be chosen together, tailored to your individual needs.
Home treatment and advice may also be given, to further enhance the benefits of your treatment; advice or strategies, may be discussed to further support you, to improve your situation or to help you manage your symptoms.
