Here are some of the treatments available at Therapy & Aroma and an explanation of the processes and their benefits.
Clinical Aromatherapy is a deeply therapeutic treatment using essential oils, to promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Essential oils are extracted from flowers, leaves, roots, resin, seeds, woods and fruits. Each oil has its own unique aroma, therapeutic properties and energy. Through research they have been found to possess analgesic, anti bacterial, stimulant, ant-inflammatory, anti spasmodic and relaxant properties, amongst many others….
The oils can be applied in a variety of ways including with massage, baths, inhalations ointments and lotions. Combining the benefits of essential oils with those of therapeutic massage offers a wonderful opportunity to relax, unwind and de-stress.
Aromatherapy massage can be used to:
relieve muscular aches and pains

increase lymphatic flow which aids removal of toxins

This facial is truly holistic; treating mind, body and spirit, with the added bonus of using Neal’s Yard’s completely natural organic award-winning skincare products.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, we are more likely to become ill or feel stress. If it is high, we are more capable of being
happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
