Aromatherapy

We blend essential oils in this bespoke treatment. We begin by asking a series of questions to find out the best combination of essential oils for you. Once made we will then use it in an aromatherapy massage. 

An aromatherapy massage is traditionally a more gentle and rhythmic style of massage.

If you would prefer to have Aromatherapy combined with Swedish massage then just ask.
