FAQ

How do essential oils work?

Essential oils are highly concentrated essences of the plant, fruit or flower it was derived from. Unlike artificial fragance oils, the chemical composition and aroma of natural essential oils carry balancing, therapeutic properties to provide psychological and physiological benefits. Essential oils can enter the body in different ways. They can be inhaled, passing into the blood stream via the lungs or by triggering the brain to send signals directly to the nervous system. When carefully blended and applied to to skin with massage,  the oils are absorbed into the body, carried around by the blood stream to take affect. Essential Oils carry many therapeutic properties, some include: nerve sedative, antiviral, detoxifying, cleansing, antiseptic,  anti-inflammatory, calming, aphrodisiac, self-esteem boosting, wound healing, uplifting, energising, sedative, antidepressant, deodorizing, insect repelling and more. 

What is a healing crisis?

Occasionally after a holistic treatment, you may experience reactions when the body begins its self-healing process and elimination of toxins. This is called a healing crisis and usually clears within 48hrs. It is also known as a healing response, cleansing reaction, or detox. You may feel emotional, drowsy, a drop in body temperature, a headache or a stuffy/cold like feeling.  Not everyone will experience these reactions and they tend to occur more frequently after your first treatment. Always drink plenty of water or herbal tea after massage to help you  flush out  toxins. Try to rest and sleep well after a massage as this can help improve your energy balance.  

Should I pick a 'Seasonal Aromatherapy' or a 'Tailored-To-You' option?

I offer a choice of carefully put together Seasonal full body options, each with it’s own massage technique, targeted focus areas, specific pressures and pre-made blend. These prepared options are perfect if you know what suits your needs and maximises on the time spent on the massage couch. If you are looking for something more personalised, where your treatment needs to focus on specific health requirements, then the Tailored-To You option would be a better choice.    

Therapeutic essential oils extracted from plants and flowers are skilfully blended and applied to the skin through massage to improve health, emotional well-being and restore balance to the body.

My husband and I have been having treatments with Melissa for the last year. We are both extremely happy with her service. She seems to know where your tight muscle are without being told. She is a very open,warm, loving and nuturing therapist and we have no hesitation in recommending her. My favourite therapies are the hot bamboo and the wonderful face lift massage. My husband also loves the hot bamboo. It is always a magical experience from a very special therapist (and I have tried lots of them!)

Thank goodness I have found Melissa! Caring for my elderly mother I treasure the times spent having relaxing and beneficial treatments from Melissa, she is kind and caring and keeps me sane, I can highly recommend her!

I could not recommend Melissa enough for head, neck and back massage. I am going to book a full body massage soon!! cant wait! The room was lovely and warm and relaxing, with lovely scents, chilled themed music and heated blanket made me dose of on some occasions. She is VERY good and has the most gentle touch, I also like a deep tissue massage, so asked and pressure was just perfect, she is strong for a littlun!. I am making it a routine to come here often as a treat to relax from my job in the similar ‘back breaking’ industry in beauty and this is by far one of the best treatments i have had. Thanks Melissa x
