Aromandina’s Woman’s Joy treatment is intended to provide relaxation and comfort with the pampering qualities of feminine essential oils: geranium, lavender and clary sage.

This treatment begins with a gentle mist followed by a soothing oil designed for reestablishing mood balance and relaxation, and then a warm compress to the abdomen. We will pay particular attention to the head and scalp relieving any tension that tends to focus there. After the treatment we will recommend a home routine so that the client can continue the benefits of the Woman’s Joy treatment throughout the month.

RADIARE Essential Oil
ALEGRIA Body Mist
Woman’s Help Body Oil

Supplies on Hand:

  • 2 Hand Towels
  • Crockpot

2. Wring out the hot water from the hand towel that is in the crockpot and lay over the abdomen area. Repeat with other towel. This compress helps to release accumulated tension in that area.

Jan 04 2011   A spa session doesn’t start with the hands on treatment.  It is important to follow a sequence that will create a trusting environment for the client, this will help establish a bond between you as the professional and the client.  Each phase of a session is as essential as any other. Although some may take less than 5 minutes, they should never be skipped or thought of as unimportant.  At the end of the session, the client will be eager to hear the recommendations provided by the therapist.

4 PHASES OF A SESSION

1. GREETING

The first stage in any spa treatment is the first impression the client has of you. As such it is critical and sets the stage for the work to be done. Communicate with your presence a warm sense of welcome and invitation. Think of your client as a dear childhood friend or a loved one you haven’t seen in a while. Express with your eyes and handshake a genuine interest in them and desire to be of service.

2. CONSULTATION

As you enter the treatment room, sit down with your client and find out what brings them in today. Do they have a specific need, like a pain somewhere in their body? Did they have an accident or some kind of emotional stress? Write down what they say and before having them get on the table let them know how you will address their concern. If you are using a specific product or therapy, like aromatherapy, let them know that it will be beneficial for them to use it at home as it will continue addressing their concern. This phase brings the client and therapist into a specific agreement concerning the treatment and is thus critical. This should take no more than 5 minutes.

3. TREATMENT

This is what most people consider as the treatment. As far as time is concerned, it certainly is the bulk of the treatment. This is where the concerns are addressed as agreed upon in the consultation. It should be noted that the treatment moves through the same sequence as the session, beginning with the introduction of your touch. It should communicate the warmth, care and concern you feel for your client. As they relax with your touch, you gain their agreement on a subconscious level allowing you to address their concerns. You can then work at deeper and deeper levels bringing them to a new level of ease, relaxation and greater range of motion.

4. RECOMMENDATIONS & NEXT APPOINTMENT

This last phase is also critical as it guides your client to a greater level of personal responsibility for their wellbeing, allowing the therapy to continue to the next level. Suggest to them what they need to do to at home in order to continue to improve. Also suggest the best time for a return visit. Write down your recommendations and suggested reschedule time and give it to them. Also, write those down in your folder in order to follow-up with them on their next visit.

Nov 29 2010 This treatment is designed to assist in the flow of energy throughout the body, physically, mentally and emotionally. It particularly focuses on bringing peaceful balance to overworked adrenal glands.
It is ideal for clients suffering from chronic fatigue and adrenal exhaustion.

We will begin with a light, relaxing and gentle mist followed by a combination of alternating warm and cold compresses to your kidneys and adrenal glands. Following the compresses will be an invigorating massage.
As their adrenal glands are brought back into balance your body will reestablish its strength, vitality and sustained energy throughout the day.

Energia Essential Oil

2 Hand Towels

Room Set Up:

Hand towel soaking in crockpot filled with 1 tbs of table salt previously mixed with 5 drops of  Energia Essential Oil on low setting.

  2. Wring out the hot water from the hand towel that is in the crockpot and lay over the kidneys and adrenal area. With a flat hand press the hot water into the adrenal tissue and gently rock back and forth.
  3. Wring out cold water from the hand towel that is in the cold water bowl. Before placing the hand towel on the client ask them to take a deep breath and let them know that on the exhale you will be placing an cold compress on their kidney area. The tendency will be for them to contract their muscles and hold their breath. Let them know it is better to relax and continue to exhale as the cold compress is placed over the kidneys. This will help them release the toxins and tension held in their body. With a flat hand press the cold water into the tissue.
  4. Alternate hot and cold compresses 3x each.
  5. Massage with Adrenal Support Body Oil using fast invigorating strokes. In your mind’s eye see your client full of energy and life. As you massage let that energy flow from your hands into your client.

The Pain Relief  Massage Protocol is designed with particular attention to promote circulation of blood and lymph fluid. Many symptoms of pain relate to an unnatural contracted condition in the body. In many painful conditions, for whatever reason, toxins are held in the body rather than easily flowing out as waste.
This Pain Relief treatment utilizes essential oils that are known to penetrate, reaching deep into the tissue, assisting in the circulation of fluids which will release held toxins that tend to cause pain.

On an energetic emotional level, this treatment assists the client in replacing feelings of worry, related to thinking that life is hard and painful and something that must be endured, with feelings of ease and relaxation through belief that life is enjoyable and always moves in cycles of greater fulfillment.

It is useful for cases of fibromyalgia and chronic pain.

Products in the treatment:

Body Oil for Circulation
Pain Begone Body Oil

Lavender Essential Oil
ALERTA Body Mist

Room Set Up:

One bowl filled with cold water.
Crockpot filled with warm water on low setting with 1 tbsp table salt that has previously been mixed with 5 drops of Lavender Essential Oil.

Have 1 hand towel soaking in both the crockpot water and the bowl with cold water

Supplies on Hand:

2 Hand Towels

Table Set Up:

Set up the table for a massage

Home Care Products:

Begone Body Oil
Body Oil for Circulation
Headache Begone Roll On
ALERTA Body Mist

Procedure:

1. Wring out the hot water from the hand towel that is in the crockpot and lay it over the painful body area. With a flat hand press the hot water into the body tissue. Using your thumb you can press firmly into Trigger and Shiatsu points for deeper release.
2. Wring out the hand towel that is soaking in the cold water and place it over the same body area you just compressed. With a flat hand press the cold water into the body tissue. Using your thumb you can press firmly into Trigger and Shiatsu points for deeper release.
3. Continue back and forth using the hot and then the cold compresses on the painful body area 3 times each promoting blood and lymphatic flow out to the surface of the body and then back into the core. The whole process should take about 12 minutes.
4. After hot and cold compressing the painful body area massage it with  Pain Begone Body Oil .
Utilize the massage techniques you have learned that assist with pain relief, such as NMT, Trigger Point, Shiatsu and Myofascial Release. As you massage, in your mind’s eye see the painful contraction and toxicity completely dissipating from your client’s body. Feel the joy of easiness, freedom of movement and release, communicating that in your touch to your client.
5. Continue in the same sequence; 3x each alternating hot and cold compresses and then massage, on each painful body area.
6. Finish massaging the rest of the body with Body Oil for Circulation. Use complete body strokes to soothe, calm and reintegrate the whole body as one.
