After a full consultation about your physical and
emotional health, Richard will choose a combination of
essential oils to meet your particular needs and apply
these through massage. In addition to the general
benefits of massage, the use of essential oils adds
immeasurably to the experience of relaxation and
Aromatherapy has a long history going back to Roman
and Egyptian civilizations but it was in the early
20th Century that a French scientist, Gattefosse,
re-discovered the healing properties of essential oils
after he applied neat lavender oil after severely
burning his hand in a laboratory accident.
Essential oils are very concentrated essences of
plants and herbs and as such have very powerful
properties that need to be carefully applied.
Richard trained as an aromatherapist in London
with Gabriel Mojay who is a leading authority in
this country and is the author of several books on
aromatherapy and other complimentary therapies.
Aromatherapy massage is available as a full body
treatment and/or concentrating on particular areas
e.g. head, shoulders and back. Treatment lasts an
hour and at the end you will feel relaxed and
refreshed in body, mind and spirit. Massage is
available in Richard's comfortable treatment room
in the centre of Littlehampton.
