With Roberto Valeri
Aromatherapy is the therapeutic application of plant essential oils to improve physical and emotional well-being.
Essential oils are fragrant, volatile (quickly evaporating) liquids that occur naturally in the ‘glands’ of aromatic plants. They are extracted from flowers,
leaves, seeds, roots, fruits and woods through distillation and expression. In the healing art of Aromatherapy, essential oils are applied in a variety of
ways including massage, ointments, baths and inhalations. Combining the benefits of essential oils with those of therapeutic massage produces a
deeply pleasurable yet highly effective natural therapy. Massage is one of the safest ways to use and apply essential oils, as the skin absorbs oil rather slowly.
Holistic Aromatherapy is geared towards the needs of the individual, and is based on the understanding that each person requires a unique blend of essential oils. Roberto is well-trained not only in the holistic approach to Aromatherapy, but in the scientific principles of essential oil chemistry and pharmacology.
Your first visit will involve a consultation. Here Roberto will ask you about your general health and vitality, medical history and emotional well-being. (All information will naturally be held in the strictest confidence). Following this, Roberto will select and blend the essential oils appropriate for your individual needs, and will apply them through massage.
Aromatherapy can be of benefit to everyone - whether their health is good or requires improvement. It is especially helpful in relieving a wide range of stress-related disorders, including headache, insomnia and irritable bowel syndrome, to name but a few. During treatment, the aroma of the essential oils has a calming effect on the mind and yet a revitalising one on the body. Relaxed and refreshed, you will be able to face life's challenges with a renewed feeling of confidence and energy.
