Sonya Edmonds is an aromatherapist specialising in aromatherapy massage for pregnancy, babies, and everyone else!
Sonya from Mother Nurture is a qualified clinical aromatherapist who specialises in pregnancy massage for expectant mothers. She is a registered nurse and practising midwife, certified infant massage instructor, and mother of two. She brings this experience to her practice as she specialises in tailoring aromatherapy massage treatments to your needs.
Sonya is passionate about the natural healing properties of essential oils and has over 14 years experience in using aromatherapy to promote health and treat physical and psychological problems.
Sonya offers the following aromatherapy treatment options at Growing Bones…
Your aromatherapy consultation:
An aromatherapy consultation is conducted prior to massage to maximise effects of your treatment. The consultation determines your physical and psychological health to ensure essential oil treatments can be prescribed that are specific to your needs. At the completion of your massage you will receive a small bottle of the remaining oil for home use to extend the effects of treatment.
You may also seek a consultation in case of treatments other than massage, e.g. aromatherapy treatment for colds & flu, morning sickness, skin disorders, emotional issues, or for babies and children. All aromatherapy remedies are at extra cost.
Aromatherapy massage and related treatments:
Regular physical massage has many benefits. It can improve muscle and joint function, enhance circulation, and relieve both physical and mental tension. So often it’s the mental and emotional strain we experience that affects our physical health!
Sonya offers three kinds of massage services:
1. Aromatherapy Massage for Pregnancy
Aromatherapy massage is an important part of self-care during pregnancy, and also postnatally to nurture new mothers as they recover from birth and adjust to the demands of motherhood.
At Growing Bones we allow for longer massage appointment times to provide a nurturing and relaxing treatment with a special focus on a woman’s physical and psychological needs during pregnancy. Aromatherapy massage supports the changing body and is valuable for birth preparation.
Growing Bones stocks Mother Nurture aromatherapy products including as Lovely Legs (for varicose veins), Pregnancy Massage and Perineum oil, Friend in Labour essential oil blend, plus many others.
2. Baby Massage
The list of benefits for infant massage is extensive, including improved sleep, relief of colic and reflux and enhanced immunity. Infant massage is also valuable for mum & dad as it enhances the bonding process and can help prevent or reduce postnatal depression. Infant massage classes include introductory sessions and 3 week courses in small groups or private classes.
3. Aromatherapy Massage for Everyone
Much more than a massage, this nurturing, aromatic treatment will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Time is precious these days. Sonya encourages you to really let go and disconnect from the world with a combination of essential oils and massage specific to your needs.
