Aromatherapy Massage in Reading

Aromatherapy dates back to ancient Egypt, where plants and flowers were distilled to extract their essential oils.
In the early 20th century a French chemist and perfumier, Rene Gattefosse, badly burned his hand whilst working in his laboratory. In an attempt to cool the burn he plunged his hand into a vat of lavender essential oil that was waiting to be used in perfume. He found that the burn healed extremely quickly, without blistering or scarring, and he then went on to research the healing properties of other plants.
Each essential oil from a flower, plant, root, leaf or piece of bark contains up to one hundred different chemical components which have a physiological effect on a person.
An aromatherapy massage consultation will begin with your medical history being taken and what you would like the therapy to achieve for you. On the basis of the information you provide, an individual oil blend is prepared to suit your needs and used in the massage.
