Treatment Spotlight – Aromatherapy Awareness Week

This week, we’re celebrating Aromatherapy Awareness Week here at The Coniston Spa. Using products from British brand, Aromatherapy Associates, we offer a range of aromatherapy treatments from facials, body scrubs to full body massages.

In this Treatment Spotlight blog, we’ll be focusing on our Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience. But first, we wanted to share a bit of information about how aromatherapy works and what the key benefits are.

What is Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy uses essential oils to help balance you both emotionally and physically. Helping everyday ailments like stress, headaches, acne, muscular aches, insomnia and low energy levels.

What is an essential oil?

A fragrant compound created within aromatic plants to protect themselves against bacteria, viruses and fungi. When these compounds are extracted as essential oils, they can have similar benefits for us.

Benefits of essential oils

Essential oils can be:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Analgesic
  • Regenerative to the skin
  • Hormone balancing
  • Circulatory stimulants
  • Digestive stimulant or tonic
  • Calming

How does aromatherapy work?

Aromatherapy works in 3 key ways:

  1. Absorption – through the skin via the hair follicle
  2. Inhalation – anti-bacterial effect on the respiratory system
  3. Sense of smell – linked to the brain giving us the ability to change the way we feel

It can take up to 20 seconds to start changing the way you feel and the effects of aromatherapy can last up to 8 hours.

 

Treatment Spotlight: Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience

One of our most popular aromatherapy treatments is our Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience. This hero treatment starts with a consultation to find out what your emotional and physical needs are.  From that we carry out an aroma test to allow you to choose the Aromatherapy Associates oil most suitable for you. There are twelve signature oils to choose from, formulated with natural plant and flower oils with wonderful exotic scents and powerful therapeutic benefits for body and mind.

With your chosen oil, your therapist will use carefully applied pressures to stimulate the nervous system, Swedish and neuromuscular techniques to relieve muscular tension, and lymphatic drainage to encourage healthy circulation. This treatment works from your head to your toes, it will dissolve away all of your stress and tension. This is an intense massage ritual drawn from a fusion of eastern and western techniques enabling the therapist to work on your body, mind and spirit.

We offer this treatment for 60 minutes at £75 and 90 minutes at £95. If you would like to book our Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience, please contact the Reservations team on 01756 748 080.
