Aromatherapy massage

Aromatherapy is the use of plant essential oils to provide different therapeutic purposes. Essential oils work physiologically, acting on different organs in the body, and psychologically, via the lymbic system in the brain. 

Not only do essential oils smell amazing, but the oil blends can be tailored to suit your needs and preferences! Aromatherapy is most often used with massage allowing the oils to be absorbed through the skin and the aromas inhaled. 

Use of aromatherapy massage in pregnancy offers a wide range of benefits including relaxation and support through a time of physical, hormonal and emotional demand. It also helps to increase oxytocin levels (the love hormone) and decrease cortisol levels (the stress hormone), positively impacting both you and your baby.

Benefits of Aromatherapy massage include:

  • Easing anxiety and aiding relaxation
  • Relieving pain and discomfort including pelvic girdle pain and sciatica
  • Improving symptoms of nausea
  • Aiding the onset and progress of labour
  • Reducing need for medical intervention
  • Aiding better sleep
  • Reducing swelling in feet and hands
  • Improving relationships with your partner or midwife
  • Reducing impact of postnatal depression
