As part of my Clinical Aromatherapy training I have learnt Aromaflexology. This uses the reflex points to make an assessment together with a consultation to best understand what your body needs to treat disorders, as well as relax the whole body and mind. Feet feel amazing too and they are so often ignored.
Using a carefully selected blend of beautiful essential oils you receive a foot massage.
The treatment aims to improve both physical and emotional health by stimulating the body's own healing system.
It has been proven to have great effects with stomach related issues.

Indian Head Massage
This is a therapy that has been practised in the Indian sub-continent for centuries. It involves massage of the scalp, face, neck, upper back, arms and shoulders in a seated position. It smooths, comforts, rebalances the energy flow to produce a feeling of well-being and tranquillity. A great introduction to those that might not want fully body-work.
Allow: 45 mins
Close your eyes and drift off during your facial treatment as tension leaves your body, and wake up feeling revitalised both inside and out. Some who have received this treatment have noted that they have benefited from sleeping better afterwards and relief from other stress-related problems.
Facial massage is a gentle way to tighten facial contours, reduce lines, calm puffiness around the eyes and to give skin a softer, smoother and brighter feel.
Two types are offered - Muscle rejuvenation which starts with staccato movements but ends with a lovely flow and relaxation OR a massage designed to unlock the tensions of the face.
Allow: 45mins - 1hr depending if you are looking for just a face massage or extended to cleansing and/or a back massage
There is a whole load of controversy over this treatment. From my own experience and offering this service for over 4 years as well as receiving the treatment myself, it helps break down wax over several treatments, which helps wax to disperse. It does have other great benefits, helping with wet ear – helps dry it out.
It is also good for helping to clear sinuses, and I believe one of its greatest benefits is preparing your ears ready for flying – reduced/no popping and reduced/no pressure. Worth trying before your next holiday abroad. Also there is a treat of a short facial massage at the end, making it a deeply relaxing treatment.
Allow: 45 mins
