What is Aromatherapy?
Firstly, it is worth noting that aromatherapy is sometimes referred to as oil therapy or essential oil therapy. In addition, this holistic treatment option has been used for over 6,000 years to improve and treat sleep, mood, anxiety and health. Although, it is worth mentioning that even though aromatherapy has been used for thousands of years, it has only been recognised as a viable natural treatment option in recent years by the medical world.
Basically, aromatherapy uses a combination of essential oils alongside various massage techniques, from a deep tissue massage, a Swedish massage or an Indian Head Massage, to name a few examples. One of the great things about aromatherapy is that it is universal in a sense it can be the ideal pair for any massage style. However, it is worth noting that aromatherapy practitioners typically experiment with the different oils to identify which oils work best with specific massage techniques. Some aromatherapy oils might work better for anxiety, similar to how specific massages are ideal for sports injuries. The best part about the oils used in aromatherapy is that they all derive from natural sources. For example, the most popular Leeds aromatherapy oils include aromatherapy, tree extracts, and orange and lavender. Some oils also come from herbs.
Moreover, it is worth noting that these essential oils need to be highly concentrated if they are effective and used correctly. Therefore, most therapists will use diluted oils via lotions, creams or humidifiers. People opt to combine aromatherapy treatment alongside their massage because it improves and boosts your mental and physical health and well-being. We have already mentioned that aromatherapy can be combined with any massage treatments offered at Circle 8 Leeds. We find that aromatherapy complements the primary massage treatment and can enhance the mental health effects and reduce aches and pains. Not only that, many therapists and doctors alike will confidently state that you can use aromatherapy as a natural treatment to support your mental health and well-being.
According to Healthline, aromatherapy is recognised as a viable treatment option for improving mood.
We are confident that you will have an extremely positive sense of well-being, feel relaxed and rejuvenated after a successful aromatherapy session. As mentioned earlier, we firmly believe that aromatherapy in Leeds only enhances the benefit gained from one of our many massage treatments.
Ant was welcoming, took my pain history and talked me through what he was manipulating. Been having a lot of trouble with my left hip, went for a walk today and no hint of old pain. He sent me exercises to do after my appointment to continue to strengthen my problem areas. Will be booking again soon.
Ant is brilliant – he really knows anatomy and massage, and will not only fix you with his hands, but also send you exercises to help prevent issues reoccurring. In addition, you’ll have a good chat, get film recommendations, and all with alt rock background music – far better than the usual ambient pan pipe nonsense. Highly recommended!
Ant is brilliant ! He has the knowledge of a great physio combined with strong and targeted massage technique that just works and gets me moving again ! Turned up with a sore kneee that wouldnt bend left completely fine and fixed plus a clear understanding of what had caused the problem. He even emailed me exercises later that day to help avoid future problems. Cannot recommend enough !! Thanks Ant !
Really good massage. I’ve been used to massage therapists just going in with their hands and not asking questions, but Jessika talked to me about my motivations for booking and then worked on the specific areas that needed it. I came out feeling like I had clouds for muscles, and my posture is already better. Amazing!
I’ve had chronic issues with my neck and back and I always leave Circle 8 feeling miles better. Ant is very knowledgeable and always makes sure to explain what may be causing the pain and discomfort. He is brilliant at what he does and is also really friendly. Definitely would recommend!
Circle8 is top notch for any niggles you might have, however big or small. Ant and the team are mega knowledgeable, they can feel exactly where you pain might be coming from, release your tension professionally, and even offer follow up exercises and mobility work to treat and prevent further issues. I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking for sports massage in Leeds city centre.
Best massage ive ever had. Ant is really friendly, great to chat to on the more painful areas of the massage and excellent aftercare advice. Wish I’d have found this place sooner! Cannot recommend enough, will definitely be back!
