Frequently asked questions...
What happens during a treatment?
The first treatment includes a thorough consultation to ensure the safe practice and use of the oils. It is important to be honest about your health and well-being to get the most out of your aromatherapy treatment. Subsequent treatments include a short consultation to refresh and update your information.
During the consultations, you are given the opportunity to smell some of the oils, to show your personal preferences and we discuss which oils would work well in a blend for you for that day and why.
You are then able to undress in private (to your underpants) and get onto the couch. Your privacy will be maintained at all times using towels and blankets as required.
What happens after the massage?
