"Each session I have with you is the most relaxing experience ever.
From the moment of pulling up outside your house and walking through your lovely zen garden to your little haven of tranquility.
Every session benefits me in every possible way. I look forward to each visit and that’s not just because I can crawl under a duvet 🙂 xx"
I am qualified as a Clinical Aromatherapist having taken a Diploma in Aromatherapy & Essential Oil Science at Neals Yard Remedies in Covent Garden. Each month I used to take a 'view from the window' shot of the Yard as it was the most beautiful setting and we were so lucky to see it at its quietest, busiest and throughout all the seasons.
As part of my qualification, we studied over 70 different oils, their chemical make up, properties and actions on the body. It was a very in-depth and challenging course, but one that has given me a huge amount of knowledge in this field and that I am so excited to share with my clients. I am continually reading about newer oils that we did not study and how I can bring them in to my treatments safely and appropriately. What it means in a nutshell is that I have quite an array of oils that I can refer to to make up a blend that will be beneficial to you at the time that I see you.
Nothing is pre blended, just completely bespoke oil blends that will meet you where you are at, whatever is going on physically and/or emotionally. I have no attachment to a particular company for buying my oils. I do have a few favourites (Oshadi, Neals Yard, NHR, Mood oils) but the overriding factor is that they are of the highest quality, that I know how the company sources their oils, sustainability being a big factor and that I wouldn't hesitate to use them on myself or my family.
"Had my first treatment today and I was overwhelmed at how much research Caz had done regarding my health issues. It showed me she genuinely cared and wanted to help. Such a beautiful setting and a wonderful experience. It’s the most relaxed and at peace I have felt for a long time."
“Amazing massage in a beautiful setting thank you Caz xx”
Physically these oils can be used to help relieve pain and inflammation, boost immunity as some have anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, influence and smooth out imbalances of the hormones, reducing levels of stress hormones and helping to regulate the different stages of our reproductive lives and also have cleansing and antiseptic properties, working with some or all of the body systems.
Mentally they work to enhance our wellbeing and moods. Many have calming properties (hello Lavender!) but can also improve clarity and focus when we need to concentrate, study or just simply get things done!
Spiritually they can be used to aid meditation, helping with the breath and to settle and focus the mind.
So what can you expect from my treatments? As may be obvious, I work 'holistically' which means with the person as a whole (body/mind/spirit). We will sit down on your first visit and as in all my new client treatments, go through a consultation to get to know you as a person, but to also ensure I can work safely with you. We will then talk about aromas (likes/dislikes) any particular favourites you may feel you want to add in on that day and from the information I have gathered from you (medical history, what you want to address, how you want to feel), I will make up a blend using one of my many carrier oils and normally up to 3 essential oils. You will then need to undress (I will leave the room at this point) and get comfortable on the couch.
I will carry out a massage treatment with the added benefits of these wonderful oils. I much prefer to carry out a full body treatment with the Aromatherapy massage, even if you feel you only need back, neck and shoulders as discomfort in this area could well be linked to an area further down the body. It is all connected (but thats a story for another day). I offer 60 minute treatments but also a 90 minute treatment which means you just get that extra bit longer to zone out & specifically for total body and mind relaxation to give your nervous system a chance to recharge. I add in some foot reflexology (as long as you don't mind having your feet touched) and a scalp massage at the end.
After your massage, I make sure you are ready to face the world again by giving you time to get your head together and also encouraging you to have some water to keep hydrated. I also recommend you leave the oils on the body for as long as possible for maximum benefit of their wonderful properties. I will give you a small bottle of whatever is left of your blend for you to take home with instructions for use.
