Sadly at the moment with the current need for social distancing I am unable to offer hands on treatments. However I am offering 30 minute Holistic Check-in appointments via video call. This is an opportunity for you to have a bit of YOU time, with a focus on your wellbeing during this difficult time. These are free of charge with the option to make a donation if you are able to do so.
To book please contact me via 07951263191 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also join me on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/katiechesteraromatherapy/ where I am sharing videos and posts with wellbeing tips on aromatherapy, DIY massage, stretches and more.
I would love to hear from you if there's a particular topic you'd like me to cover.
In addition, I will be teaching the planned Introduction to Massage, Introduction to Reflexology and Introduction to Indian Head Massage courses for Abingdon and Witney College via an online platform. These could be great skills to learn and share with those you are quarantined with at home. Please contact me for more details.
Meanwhile, please take care and stay well.
Aromatherapy massage combines the natural therapeutic properties of essential oils with the healing power of massage to help bring the body and mind into balance, relieve stress and support the nervous, circulatory, lymphatic, immune and muscular systems.
A deeply relaxing therapy, renowned for its effectiveness in relieving stress and tension, Indian head massage treats the shoulders, neck, head and face, leaving you feeling both relaxed and energised. A series of treatments can be helpful in relieving tension headaches and poor sleep patterns.
Regular facials are not only an ideal way to keep your skin in top condition and deal with any problem areas, but are also a relaxing, restorative experience. At the heart of the holistic facial is a blissful massage encompassing the face, head, neck and shoulders and incorporating the acupressure points of the face and head. I use certified organic skincare products from Neals Yard Remedies to cleanse, exfoliate, tone, treat and nourish the skin.
Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive healing treatment that is performed through clothing. A reiki session typically involves the laying of hands on various points of the body to harmonise the subtle energy system, bringing balance, relaxation and a sense of calm and well-being.
Why Holistic Therapies?
In today’s busy world it’s easy to succumb to chronic stress and tension without even realising it. This can affect our sleep patterns, our mood and ultimately our physical and mental health. That’s why it’s more important than ever to take time out to allow our bodies and minds to refresh and rebalance. My treatments are designed to soothe overworked muscles and stressed minds and bodies, helping to restore your natural balance and allowing your body and mind to unwind.
Each treatment is tailored to your individual needs. I use a range of techniques but in general I prefer to work in a reflective, intuitive way, encouraging muscles to release tension at their own pace and allowing you to return to your centre.
Since the benefits of holistic therapies are often cumulative, it can be helpful to have a course of 3 – 5 treatments if you are dealing with acute stress or a particular condition, followed by regular maintenance treatments.

‘Your massages are the best I’ve ever had. Technically they are brilliant as you really identify the knots across the shoulders, but it’s also because you have a nice, warm, open energy that reacts with others in a positive way.’ Debbie, Oxford.
