Release tension held in every part of the body, leaving you feeling deeply relaxed and re-charged. Carefully applied pressures stimulate the nervous system. Stresses and strains are dissolved away.
Our Aromatherapy Massage treatments
Our treatments are firmly based on the traditional principles of aromatherapy developed by Marguerite Maury in the 1950s. Using eastern and western massage techniques, they stimulate the nervous system to release congestion and re-balance areas of the body affected by physical or mental stress. At the same time, the essential oils are absorbed into the bloodstream enhancing cell renewal, circulation and detoxification, while their aromas act on the deepest parts of the brain to enhance our mood and emotions.
Aromatherapy effects on the body
Essential oils are made up of very small molecules, which means they can easily bring their unique healing properties to every cell of the body. They are traditionally used to help ease muscular aches and pains, improve circulation and ease sinus congestion. They also have a positive effect on the skin, penetrating into the deeper layers to encourage the process of cellular renewal, enhance blood circulation and help problems such as acne, eczema and ageing skin.
Aromatherapy effects on the mind
Linked to the areas of the brain governing instinct, memory and emotion, our sense of smell is the most primitive of our senses. Through the pathways between smell and the deep centres of the brain, essential oils can have a dynamic effect on our emotional state. They can help transform our moods and move us from one state of mind to another.

Aromatherapy Associate’s history and heritage
Aromatherapy Associates are extremely proud to be able to trace a direct line back to the very beginnings of modern aromatherapy. Studies began in the 1970s when their founders Geraldine Howard and Sue Beechey both trained under Micheline Arcier, student of aromatherapy founders Marguerite Maury, an Austrian biochemist and skincare pioneer, and Jean Valnet M.D., an expert in the science of essential oils. This association with aromatherapy’s earliest practitioners has provided an ongoing link to the traditional principles of aromatherapy and the benefits essential oils bring when applied in the right way.
Since those early days, Geraldine and Sue have maintained a deep passion for teaching, practising and blending oils. In 1985, Aromatherapy Associates was established to share the benefits of aromatherapy through a range of therapeutic-grade products and treatments. They have continued to develop and expand, and their products are now sold at exclusive hotels, spas and retail outlets in over 40 countries worldwide and we are proud to be one of these spas.
