Aromatherapy is a combination of natural medicine and herbalism

Essential oils are the most precious gift from planet Earth to mankind - they are the essence and soul of every plant. No wonder, then, that essential oils have
such an intense effect on our most delicate, sensitive aspects.

Aromatherapy is a fantastic, simple, effective and also very pleasant therapeutic method. It is often regarded as a mood inducer, capable of stimulating our energies. The precise effect of aromatherapy depends on the type of oil used.

Aromatherapy involves introducing biologically active aromatic substances and essential oils of plant origin into the patient's body - either through the respiratory system(i.e. inhalation), or skin - by massage, bathing or poultices.

The use of aromatherapy in massage and cosmetic treatments

The most effective treatment in aromatherapy is an aroma massage, providing the most potent and very quick results. The oils used are mixtures of selected ingredients, creating an unlimited number of aromas.

Basil, clove or lemon oils stimulate and refresh, enhance focus and relieve anxiety and insomnia. They have an analgesic effect, especially during pains of neurological origin, such as migraines, rheumatic neuralgia or arthritic/muscular pains. They soothe the effects of insect bites.

Gingerbread oil has an antihistamine effect and relieves motion sickness.

Rosemary oil is a stimulant and aphrodisiac known since ancient times. It was the main ingredient in the famous Water of the Queen of Hungary - a medicinal perfume created by Elisabeth Łokietkówna, a Polish princess and queen of Hungary in the 14th century.

Contraindications to performing a massage

General contraindications to massage therapy

General contraindications to massage include diseases, illnesses and conditions that inhibit the ability to perform a massage. This is why we conduct a thorough interview with the client before we proceed with the massage. During the first visit, we create a detailed health profile(after a medical interview), and with subsequent visits we conduct brief interviews to update the current situation.

First, do no harm

Absolute contraindications, both general and local, do not allow a massage session. Relative recommendations place certain restrictions on the type, extent, area, time and timing of the massage.

Similarly - if we do refrain from performing a treatment, it is always a decision aimed at improving the patient's condition. For ethical reasons, we do not perform any treatment that could lead to deterioration of the client's health.
