According to Five Element theory, each person’s mind/body is composed of Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth. Each element represents different phases of yin and yang energy which weave together to form a balance. When this interplay is in harmony, we vibrate optimal health and vitality. Yet, when in disharmony, challenging symptoms and health problems may arise.
A whole range of problems such as digestive issues, muscular and joint pain, low immunity, eczema, chronic lethargy and emotional states such as depression may be traced back to imbalances in the elements.
Five Element aromatherapy uses pure, organic essential oils to target the underlying causes of each individual’s emotional and physical disturbances to gently yet profoundly restore balance.
‘Little and often’ is an effective way of garnering the full benefits of aromatherapy and the simple act of inhaling a scent you first smelt in a safe, relaxed environment instantly reawakens those sensations during your week. To prolong the benefits between sessions I recommend and create take-home remedies. This varies from nasal inhalers to uplift the mood or calm panic to chest rubs for coughs, colds and breathing difficulties, balms to soothe skin problems such as eczema or bath oils to assuage anxiety.
After a thorough consultation to uncover current health issues, emotional ebbs and constitutional weaknesses, essential oils that target the client’s specific needs will be blended to form a personalised massage oil.
Aromatherapy massage is a deeply effective way for essential oils to be administered to the body as physical touch helps the therapeutic oils to penetrate the skin and enter the bloodstream while simultaneously soothing the nervous system. My treatments combine aromatherapy with deep hands-on massage techniques, chosen to correspond to your needs on the day and unlock deep-seated tension and pain.
