An aromatherapy massage is a version of a Swedish massage, but also includes the use of blended essential oils during the treatment. Essential oils are inhaled and absorbed through the skin throughout your session, helping to energise, de-stress and tackle common aches and pains.
Information about aromatherapy massage
What is an aromatherapy massage?
An aromatherapy massage combines the power of blended essential oils with massage therapy which benefits and stimulates both the mind and body. The essential oils vary depending on the benefits you would like to achieve but often include oils such as bergamot which is believed to alleviate tension, anxiety and depression and cedarwood which is reputed to protect the body against harmful bacteria, soothe aching muscles, joint pain and stiffness as well as regulate menstruation. You may also expect to find oils such as chamomile, eucalyptus and lavender amongst others.
How is aromatherapy massage performed?
After discussing your needs with you, your massage therapist will add a few drops of oil to massage lotion and apply it directly to your skin with light massage. They may also diffuse an essential oil in the room during your session.

Update - had a hot stone massage with Fi which I was a little apprehensive about as I hadn’t had one before.. and oh my goddd I would never get anything else now!! Fi was communicative and always made sure the stones were the right temperature and that I was comfortable. Amazing experience. Next time I want an Indian head massage. 😍
