Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils from plants for their therapeutic properties.  The oils are used for treating medical and non-medical conditions.  Although it may appear to be a relatively new therapy, plant oils have been used for their health benefits for centuries.

An aromatherapy treatment begins with an in depth consultation about your medical history, lifestyle and reasons for seeking treatment.  Then, essential oils can be chosen according to your needs and blended together to form a pleasant and efficient synergy for treatment.  These are diluted in an appropriate carrier oil and applied to the skin during a gentle and relaxing massage.  If you wish to continue your treatment between massage appointments, Sophia can dispense bespoke preparations for you such as facial and body oils, bath oils and salts, pillow sprays etc.

Sophia Russell MFHT is a clinical aromatherapist and works from her home treatment room in Chailey.  For appointments call her on 07970 578821 or email sophia@hestiasflame.com
