I help people to relax in their bodies and find peace in their minds, through touch. My hands soothe and stretch muscles as they massage fragrant oils into skin. Attention is enticed into the body, which can bring a feeling deep contentment in the joyful simplicity of being alive.
"Best in the business. I've had other massages, which have hurt. I have a good feeling about you, and a level of trust so that I can let go and let you do your work. I can totally relax with you. And you've really helped in the past with my anxiety and panic attacks; I left with a sense of calm in this manic world." CD
A few drops of pure Essential Oils mingled with Sweet Almond and Macademia Nut oils, results in a powerful, fragrant blend of oils created for each treatment. Each Oil chosen for its unique qualities in response to what is needed on each visit.
CONSULTATION: Relevant Essential Oils are chosen following a chat at the beginning of the treatment. People come for an Aromatherapy Treatment to help them relax, and all the information that a client can give me during the consultation helps me to tailor the blend specifically Essential Oils support us in different ways, for example with physical problems, aches or pain, emotional imbalances, too much mental activity, or a feeling of disconnection with ourselves, others or our surroundings.
ESSENTIAL OILS: The pure extracted essence of a plant can help change our internal chemistry. Essential Oils are very powerful, and only a few drops are needed at a time.
MASSAGE: Rhythmic strokes to the body, both gentle and firm, apply the oil to skin, and help a person to relax. Attention is coaxed towards the rhythm and sensation, which stills the mind.
BODYWORK: Stretching and gentle manipulation of joints and limbs assists in opening up joints, releasing tension.
“The massage I received from Elgiva is by far the best I have ever had … her practice connected with me skilfully and intuitively and as a result I felt that she understood what my body needed. The space in which Elgiva holds the massage is warm, calm and friendly. I felt at ease and was able to drift into a deep relaxing place.” KL
