Aromatherapy is a complimentary therapy that uses pure and natural essential oils to promote health and well-being and is used as an aide to relaxation. At Revive we use Clinical Aromatherapy as a treatment help to improve all-round well-being – physical, mental and spiritual.
We use aromatherapy in the form of body massage but for those who cannot withstand massage, other methods such as steam inhalation, a compress etc maybe adopted. An assessment is necessary as some people can be allergic to some of oils, so a small test patch can be performed to ensure each individual is suitable.
After assessment, various essential oils are blended to suit the individual needs of the person concerned, taking into account the desired outcome of each treatment.

- Reduced muscle spasm
- Reduction of pain levels
