Health & Wellbeing Complementary Therapies
Our Health and Wellbeing Complementary Therapies are available on limited days at the salon. Please see our Clinic Diary.
Aromatherapy treatments are based on using the therapeutic properties of essential oils, from plants and flowers, to relieve the symptoms of today’s hectic lifestyle. Perfect for easing stress and anxiety, reducing muscle tension and joint pains, aiding sleep, helping control migraine and headaches and generally promoting a sense of well being.
Starting with a consultation our practitioner will blend selected oils, designed for you, which are massaged into the skin where they enter the blood stream and are transported around the body. Essential oils can be relaxing, uplifting, calming or energising, and work on both a physical and emotional level.
Aromatherapy remains one of the most widely used complementary therapies within the Health Care environment. It benefits everyone, leaving you feeling relaxed and recharged. Clients in support or palliative care benefit greatly from this therapy. Only the highest quality clinically approved essential oils are used at Benessere.
