Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to help promote and maintain physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Extracted from aromatic plants, each essential oil has unique therapeutic characteristics.
Research has shown that essential oils have amazing healing properties such as anti-inflammatory, anti-infectious, anti-viral, anti-spasmodic and calming amongst many others.
Psychologically, they have been shown to uplift, relax and stimulate the body and mind. In combination with the Olfaction (smelling) effect, which has been proven to have a psychological effect on the brain, the benefits of essential oils are vast.

As each of us is unique, it is also necessary to blend oils specifically for clients according to their needs. Diluted and applied to skin via massage, the innate healing powers of these natural essences are effective on the body as a whole. Through absorption and influence of aromas they facilitate self-healing, re-establish balance and harmony. The use of natural organic substances means that our bodies are more compatible with them, which means there is little risk of side effects when administered by a properly trained therapist. All the essential oils used in our aromatherapy treatment are organic and of the highest quality.
Massage is an extremely effective medium for the use of essential oils, however, their many and varied properties make them a versatile tool for a wide range of conditions, through additional use of creams, compresses, baths, inhalations and more. Therefore your aromatherapy treatment may be continued at home, and Jenny would happy to offer advice and guidance or blend preparations for you.
What can Aromatherapy Treat?
Aromatherapy with Chinese Medicine
Having trained with world renowned Aromatherapist and Chinese medicine practitioner Gabriel Mojay, Jenny brings a unique method of East meets West to your aromatherapy treatment. The treatment is based on traditional western use of aromatherapy in combination with Chinese medicine energetics. It is often said, “the root of most illness lies in the depths of our souls”. That treating the root problem is far more beneficial in the long run than just treating the end result of it. This is the concept behind Holistic Aromatherapy. Not only does this therapy focus on the physical person but also the Mind and Soul – the person as a “Whole”.
Oriental medicine principles are based on the theory of Yin and Yang and that of ‘Vital Substance’ (Qi). Yin and Yang are inseparable as well as complementary. One cannot exist without the other. In order to maintain good physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being, the ‘Vital Substance’ must be flowing freely and the Yin and Yang be in balance and harmony. Oriental medicine believes that it is when the body is in a state of imbalance and disharmony that we feel “dis-ease”.
Benefits of Aromatherapy
Treatments may benefit everyone whether their health is good or requires improvement. Aromatherapy is an extremely effective, safe and natural method of releasing stress and related conditions. It can be a deeply relaxing, comforting and supportive way of helping with a multitude of ailments and may be used alone or alongside orthodox medicine. It has positive influences on all the body’s systems and may relax, revive, refresh, replenish vitality, promote positive health, improve/maintain your sense of well-being and generally make you feel happier and healthier.
