Aromatherapy (meaning "treatment using scents") has been used for 6000 years or more. The Ancient Egyptians, Aromatherapy at Nuffield Health HospitalsGreeks and Romans all used tratments incorporating aromatherapy or essential oils, using natural aromatic extracts from plants and herbs, to promote good health and prevent illness.

How Aromatherapy Works

On your first visit your aromatherapist may ask about your health and lifestyle so that the treatment will meet your individual needs. A specific blend of essential oils will then be prepared for your massage, which takes about an hour. Depending on your individual treatment, your therapist may prepare oils for you to use at home, between appointments.

Benefits of Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is based on an holistic approach, treating the whole person, rather than specific symptoms. Combined with caring, healing touch of massage, aromatherapy can have a profound effect on physical and emotional conditions. Common conditions known to respond to aromatherapy include muscular aches and pains, backache, emotional tension and stress, insomnia, headaches, pre-menstrual pain, addictions, fatigue and depression. The powerful aromatic qualities of essential oils can also help to prevent vulnerability to illness.
