Massage

Sophia offers 2 different types of massage.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy is an ancient therapeutic treatment dating as far back as Egyptian times. It was then rediscovered in the 1920’s by Rene Gattefosse a French chemist. It is widely used and recognised for its beneficial therapeutic properties, and can be used alongside orthodox medicine.

Essential oils are concentrated extracts from plants, herbs, flowers, leaves or roots and all of them have their own unique therapeutic properties which aim to promote good health in mind and body.

How do essential oils work?

They are inhaled and absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream. They aim to balance the body’s systems and can bring about emotional responses which essentially enable us to feel calm, refreshed, comforted, energised depending upon the oils that the therapist has chosen for the individual client.

Initial consultation

After an initial consultation has been carried out Sophia will choose a blend of essential oils and dilute them into a carrier (base) oil prior to the massage. A variety of massage techniques are used to maximise the benefits the client will get to all body systems.
