Aromatherapy in pregnancy is one of the most ancient forms of therapy to promote maternal natural healing & relaxation
It incorporates the use of highly concentrated essential oils which are extracted from plant material - whose therapeutic properties aid in enhancing maternal physical & emotional well-being
Aromatherapy is most often administered through a relaxing, Swedish massage. The therapeutic, healing properties of essential oils are absorbed via the skin and into the bloodstream. It is highly beneficial during pregnancy, both as a relaxation treatment as well as to ease certain pregnancy discomforts such as muscle tension, backache, swelling in arms and legs, and carpal tunnel syndrome (tingling wrists).
Research shows that regular pregnancy massage towards the end of pregnancy aid relaxation which in turn encourages the spontaneous onset of labour and normal birth (Birth Preparation Therapy).
Aromatherapy oils may also be used in the bath, as a compress, and through breathing exercises.
A full consultation is taken on your first visit so that an appropriate mix of essential oils is blended according to your specific needs.
