Aromatherapy uses essential oils, which are the concentrated extracts taken from plants. The oils are used for their specific property to support the body’s natural healing process and enhance well-being. The oils used in my treatments are sourced from a reputable supplier selecting only the finest quality essential oils worldwide which have been extensively tested ensuring they are pure, natural and undiluted for clinical use.
Please note that during pregnancy some essential oils MUST NOT be used at all. Rose oil should not be used before 34 weeks and Clarysage oil and Jasmine oil should not be used before 37 weeks. If you are unsure please consult a therapist trained in pregnancy aromatherapy.
How are essential oils used?
A blend of up to 3 oils will be considered for their properties in relieving symptoms of a pregnancy condition you are suffering with. You will then be given an opportunity to test the aroma to ensure suitability (other oils may be chosen if the first test is unsuitable as scent receptors are heightened in pregnancy). Once the oils are chosen you will be given a choice of a suitable carrier oil to complete your unique blend.
Pregnancy massage can be an excellent alternative to or enhancement of medication to relieve pregnancy discomforts as well as managing labour pain and supporting lactation following birth.Massage encourages physical and mental relaxation and can provide relief for the following conditions:
Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
Fear & Anxiety
Pain – especially lower back or pelvic
Massage releases muscle tension and aids rest which can also help with a better night’s sleep. Benefits also include improved circulation for you which improves nutrition through the placenta to your baby.
It is good for mental well-being by enhancing mood which can lead to reduced stress and anxiety. The maternal-fetal relationship is enriched through the release of a hormone called oxytocin during massage.
