healing for body mind and spirit .... naturally.

Our Treatments

Subtle Aromatics draws on Eastern philosophy, including the theories of Yin/Yang and the Five Elements from Traditional Chinese Medicine. These elements are Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal. Our essential oils are classed and organised within that structure.

Each of the five elements represents a phase of yin and yang energy, which when in balance allows for a harmonious state of being. A holistic therapy with this influence involves the whole person and their way of life. This philosophy in combination with nourishing massage and aromatic essences is a soothing yet powerful way of coming back to a peaceful, harmonious self.

Holistic therapies are a non-invasive form of treatment, which aim to treat the underlying cause of your symptoms naturally in order to help improve and enhance your overall general state of health and wellbeing.
