Clinical Aromatherapy


An Aromatherapy treatment to suit your individual needs using Clinical Aromatherapy, an organic chemistry holistic healing system
“The art and science of applying essential oils therapeutically for the express purpose of healing”.

What is Clinical Aromatherapy?

Clinical Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use and application of genuine and authentic plant derived essential oils for the healing of patients (clients) based upon examination of client needs and state of health.  Clinical Aromatherapy is like a form of medication with essential oils properties able to penetrate in to the body and blood stream through the skin, through inhalation to have an effect on the body at a cellular level and on the brain and the mind. It can be used skilfully to treat conditions of the body (physical) and mind (emotional).

Essential oils have been used in fragrances, flavourings and medicines for thousands of years and there are around 400 different oils extracted from plants all over the world. Each individual essential oil has its own unique therapeutic properties, and can be used or applied in a variety of ways, including:

        * Massage * Inhalation -through steam inhalation or vaporisers  *Immersion * Compresses (hot or cold applied to the body/skin  * In creams and lotions for individual use

What to expect from your treatment

You will receive a full consultation and the Aromatherapist will find out as much as they can about you medical history, general health, diet and lifestyle and how you are feeling. They will try to ascertain with you what conditions that you want be treated in this session or over a course of treatment.

This will then enable them to select a number of suitable essential oils in order to produce a bespoke blend made just for you for your individual needs. The therapist will also decide which is the best technique to use to administer your blend. If this is in a massage they blended into a carrier oil or cream and applied to your skin as part of a massage treatment. The areas treated will come down to your personal preferences, but would typically be either a full body massage, or a neck, back and shoulder massage, with towels used to protect your modesty.

At the end of the treatment, your therapist will give you aftercare advice and may recommend that you use certain products home – for instance, in the bath or on a tissue for inhalation – to further enhance the benefits gained from your treatment.

They may ask you to conduct them after a few days to give them feedback on how the treatment worked or is working. This enables them to make the most effective treatment for you in the future with your needs at heart. A bespoke treatment of care to suit you…

‘What makes holistic healthcare so valuable and unique is that we do ask questions, we do explore the clients life, health, lifestyle, emotional and physical health, and we listen to our clients ‘story’ to come up with a plan that may be of benefit to them.’   EWSHAS


“I have known Mary Sarah for nearly four years and have been a regular client throughout, including during my two pregnancies.
Mary Sarah puts you at ease from the moment you walk through the door. She is very warm and makes sure the massage is tailored to your needs.
I have tried different types of massage with her.
Pregnancy massage: I have had problems with my sacrus due to a fall and she has worked at a muscular level helping to relieve the tension in my lower back. She is very aware of many aspects of pregnancy which is reassuring, and makes her massages safe and relaxing.
I have also tried remedial massage when I had problems with my wrists during my second pregnancy and also with my ankle when I injured it running.
Whenever I have had a massage I have always felt my needs were met and looked forward to the next appointment.”

Mary Sarah is an exceptional practitioner. Having seen her over the course of the last six years for therapeutic massage for on-going stress management alongside several sessions of treatment for more acute and isolated issues or back pain or injury I can wholeheartedly recommend her. She is sympathetic, client-led and adaptive to individual needs. Professional, caring and effective, her treatments are wonderful.

Mary took the time to listen to my personal injury story and then expertly put this in context to how this may have occurred. This understanding enabled me to gain my confidence in my badminton.

Following Mary’s consultation I realised that my shoulder injury was not as serious as I thought and the symptoms of pain soon relented following a series of treatments. Mary was able to isolate the cause within minutes and then explain a plan to resolve the condition.

I recommend Mary Eldridge to others who are looking for specialists in remedial massage.”

“Mary was highly recommended to me by a friend for treatment of a number of issues, not least chronic “golfers elbow” that had been resistant to acupuncture, physiotherapy, steroid injections and prp injections. Her professional, thorough, holistic approach was immediately evident. She used her extensive knowledge thoughtfully so we agreed a clear achievable plan, setting realistic expectations whilst being mindful of my goals and aspirations. She is incredibly respectful during treatments and always checks on its  effects and any results. She has encouraged me to look at my injury and recovery in a different way. This has changed what I do in my day to day life to support my bodies healing alongside her Remedial and orthopaedic  massage treatment. I am now largely pain free and increasing my activities steadily.”

Over a number of years I have visited Mary for Massages, First for pure Luxury
….She always seems to find the right one for the occasion!
Secondly for various problems that have arrived over the years. After a fall,
Shoulder ,back hip etc. I find relaxing the muscles and improving the circulation repairs the damage and prevents more serious conditions.
She listens carefully,has a professional approach and I thank her for helping me to be a fit retired and very happy customer.

‘Mary took the time to listen to my ‘story’ about my back problems and this meant that when she started treating me I felt confident she understood my issues. Mary works holistically and is empathetic about living with back pain and the associated anxieties that can go with this. Her remedial massage treatments, combined with her compassionate approach, have allowed me to experience genuine pain relief.’


I have had primary lymphoedema in my left foot and ankle since the age of 14. Together with my compression socks, I have found lymphatic drainage therapy really beneficial in managing this chronic condition.
I have been visiting Mary Sarah since 2009 on a monthly basis, and am always so glad to see the appointment in the diary! It is such a relaxing treatment and I know her expert care has prevented my condition from worsening. Infact, there are days when my foot looks better than it ever has before, which is excellent as I’ve lived with the condition for 34 years now.
In addition, there are times when it has worsened, such as after holidays where the heat has been extreme. Mary Sarah always has suggestions of things I can do at home to get my foot back to optimal health.
I feel really lucky to have found such a professional practitioner, who really cares for you as a whole person.

When I first saw Mary my eczema was particularly bad, I felt generally unwell and very tired and quite down about the way I was feeling.  I was getting married in the summer and felt very conscious that on my wedding day my hands would look awful from the eczema when I wanted to show off my ring!  Also as a Healthcare Professional I feel my eczema is embarrassing when dealing with patients who may not understand my condition.

I have had eczema & asthma throughout the whole of my life and felt I had come as far as I could with conventional medicine.  After reading about the benefits of lymphatic drainage treatment for common illnesses I decided to give Mary a try.  After all what did I have to lose?

Mary has been very thorough and supportive throughout and has tried to look at the whole of me rather than just the eczema on my hands.  The first session of treatment was relaxing, but felt a little strange.  I like Mary’s gentle & kind approach, where she has introduced simple techniques to help me away from the clinic.  My eczema was vastly improved as a result of this treatment.

Looking to the future, I will probably need and want to go and see Mary for treatment on a regular basis for as long as it is giving me benefit.  I would recommend her to others who have experienced similar problems to myself.
