Myself and another local therapist Claire have teamed and are now offering On Site Massage and Beauty Treatments at your work place. We cover Stockport, Manchester and surrounding areas.
On site massage services always prove to be popular for one off Staff Wellbeing or Appreciation Days and Christmas Parties.
Some companies also offer regular On Site massage services as part of their corporate health management strategy to look after staff and to reduce work related musculo skeletal disorders, stress, depression and anxiety.
We also decided to include mini Manicures and Pedicurs as these treatments are often popular at Christmas and other seasonal occasions such as Halloween and Valentines. These services are also popular with companies who are hosting Customer Appreciation Events.
Over the years both myself and Claire have worked with a wide variety of private and public sector companies, community groups and local charities.
We have a simple pricing structure as below with a discount for regular bookings of at least 4 hrs per month.
If you would like more information or would like to make a booking, please email myself Zoe and Claire on [email protected]
As part of Aromatherapy Awareness week 2018 I am writing a few blog posts to give you some key information about essential oils and aromatherapy.
Today I will share some ideas for a) how you can use essential oils and b) discuss the many holistic and beauty purposes they have.
How can I use Essential Oils?
Diffuse them in an oil burner with a tee light or electric diffuser
Add them to unscented base products e.g. massage oils, creams, lotions, bath salts etc.
Apply a few drops to a tissue and inhale
Mix 3 drops in a tablespoon of unscented bath oil to enable the essential oil to disperse into the water. Then add to a bowl of warm water to soak your feet.
For colds, headaches etc you could do the same and inhale with a towel over your head (this method is not suitable for people with respiratory conditions such as asthma or COPD).
You can add them to your mop bucket when cleaning.
Once you get used to choosing and safely using essential oils, you could make other slightly more complex products such as
Room, Linen or Pillow Sprays
Your own Perfumes and Body Mists
Wax Melts, Candles
Melt and Pour Soaps
What can I use Essential oils for?
You can use them simply for their pleasing aroma but as essential oils are so versatile you can also use them for a very wide range of health issues. The most common physcial, psychological and emotional conditions that essential oils can help with include: stress, anxiety, low mood, PMT and menopausal emotional imbalances, coughs, colds, flu, to prevent such infections, headaches, insomnia, low energy levels and fatigue, nervous exhaustion, digestive upsets, musclar aches and pains, rheumatism, arthritis and more.
Essential oils can also be used in your skin and hair care routines. There are essential oils for all skin types: sensitive, mature, dry, oily or congested, acne, scars, dry and itchy scalp, oily scalp etc.
In order for the essential oils to enter into your system, they will need to be either applied to your skin, scalp or inhaled. If you use them in a wash off product e.g shower gel, they will not be on your skin long enough to be absorbed although you may inhale a little if used in a hot shower room.
As I mentioned in my first post, I work as an independent consultant for Neal's Yard organic and use their essential oils and base products for both professional and personal use.
Neal's Yard have a comprehensive range of Aromatherapy products:
Electric Diffusers to diffuse essential oils into your home or work place. There is also the Osaka diffuser whichyou can use in the car
Organic Essential Oils - invididual oils and blends such as Night Time (for sleep issues), Vitality (for low energy levels and mental fatigue), De-Stress, Calming, Optimism (for low mood) and Focus (useful for brain fog or lack of concentration).
Neal's Yard Organic also sell a fantastic range of unscented products called the Create range. You can add your own essential oils to these products to make a unique, customsied organic products for your needs.
Create Organic Hair and Body Wash - please bear in mind that if you use essential oils in a product that you apply and wash off soon after, the essential oils will not have chance to absorb into your bloodstream.
