What I offer

Holistic aromatherapy massage using individual blends of essential oils

Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of essential oils to relieve stress, enhance health and well-being, prevent problems and support the healing process.

Each essential oil has distinct therapeutic properties that can improve the body’s natural functioning.

It can be used to treat a wide range of disorders, including stress and tension, headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, back aches and muscular pain.

The ‘M’ Technique®

The ‘M’ Technique is a registered method of gentle, structured touch and is a powerful way of bringing about deep, meditative relaxation.

The ‘M’ Technique  differs from massage in that it works only on the skin receptors that send signals to the brain. The technique has been described as physical hypnotherapy. It produces a state of mindfulness and meditation. The Technique is a powerful way of bringing about the benefits of deep relaxation.
