Our sense of smell, one of the most underestimated and underserved senses, opens a window to the world around us. Many times, our memory can be jostled by just smelling a rose or your grandma’s roast beef. Using our sense of smell as a mechanism to nurture and cure physical and mental ailments has centuries of years behind it, and at Massage Swansea, we are proud to continue the tradition. Aromatherapy can have many benefits and our massage therapists will help you find the right mixture of essential oils for your needs.
Base Oils and Essential Oils
Aromatherapy is a light body massage accompanied by natural essential oils that will stir your mind and body. Our massage therapists will adapt a mixture of essential oils to your needs. First, our therapists will match a carrier oil, either sweet almond, grape seed, or jojoba oil, to fit your preferences and needs, and then mix in the essential oils that are appropriate for you.
Do you suffer from insomnia often? Even if you don’t, you may have trouble falling asleep at night, or have interrupted sleep patterns. Perhaps you have experienced anxiety or depression, brought on by events out of your control. Our calming aromatherapy massage in Swansea is the perfect solution for you. A combination of chamomile, lavender, vanilla, bergamot, and geranium essential oils can help unblock your sleeping patterns or ease out depression and anxiety symptoms. These essential oils have been revered for their calming properties for centuries and we are confident they will also have a relaxing effect on you.
Many people underestimate the power of aromatherapy massages and their repairing properties. While being excellent relaxing massages, aromatherapy can also help repair body and mind. Peppermint, clary sage and ginger essential oils can help diffuse menstrual and menopause pains and symptoms. Peppermint, eucalyptus, and pine essential oils can help alleviate cold symptoms and respiratory problems. A dash of rosemary essential oil can also help relieve a headache. Our massage therapists can concoct the right balance of essential oils to create a repairing mixture for you, depending on your needs. Essential oils “team-up” with each other; different pairings can target many needs at once, making aromatherapy an effective repairing massage.
Do you have trouble waking up some mornings and need a while to clear your mind? Or perhaps your energy crash is in the afternoon, once you’ve completed most tasks but can’t quite call it a day. Does the smell of coffee always do the trick to get you started? That’s the power of aromatherapy. Although we do not offer coffee essential oil, we do have a variety of essential oils with re-energising properties that can help you clear the clouds from your mind and think clearly. Essential oils like peppermint, sweet orange, and jasmine can significantly change your mood. Rosemary essential oil has been used over the centuries to nourish our brains and increase memory and concentration. A one to one massage Swansea aromatherapy session with these essential oils can help you focus your mind and distinguish the ideas that are worth keeping and those that may just be day-to-day passengers.
