So that your therapist can understand all your requirements, you will be asked to complete a detailed consultation before the start of each session covering all aspects of your wellbeing. This is to ensure that you have the most suitable therapy and guarantee that you receive maximum benefit from your treatment.

Aromatherapy is the art and science of using oils extracted from aromatic plants to enhance health and beauty.
At Aviva Holistics we only use pure essential oils that are extracted from flowers, herbs, spices, woods and fibres. Each essential oil affects a different aspect of a person’s health. Apart from the physical benefits, essential oils can also have subtle effects on the emotions.
As each person’s requirements are different each client receives a personalised blend of oils following an in-depth consultation.

Reflexology is an ancient art. It is founded on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet and hands which correspond to all organs, glands and systems of the body.
Reflexology is a positive, highly successful method of reducing the physical and emotional stresses, strains and anxieties of today’s society. It stimulates the circulation, nervous and glandular systems, helping to restore the natural balance throughout the body and eliminate toxins. It brings balance and harmony to all body systems and calms or stimulates as appropriate, without harmful side effects. Reflexology promotes overall relaxation.
Approximately one-third of the tension of the body is carried in the head and shoulders. Indian Head Massage involves relaxing massage of the head, neck and shoulders, helping to relieve the stress and tension that so many people carry.
This is a very relaxing non-invasive therapy, as it does not require the removal of any clothing and is performed without the use of oils. We at Aviva Holistics see this treatment as the ideal introduction to complementary therapies. There is no requirement for a therapy bed, we provide a specialist massage chair. This is an ideal treatment for unwinding during lunch.

This treatment works on the lymphatic system, which is responsible for the removal of toxins from the body’s tissues, as well as the production of cells that are part of the immune system.
