Insomnia needs an holistic approach.


I meet a lot of people who have problems getting to sleep at night and each one is different though some of these people share some of the factors.

Chronic Pain. There are a few of my clients with this who always sleep better for a few days after an aromatherapy massage. Sadly they can’t afford to get one every three days as if they could, I wouldn’t need to do any advertising at all for clients!

Worry. This is probably the most common reason both among my clients and friends. When we are busy, we don’t have time to worry and some  will do anything to avoid thinking about things till they try and go to sleep at which point it all starts….. This one is particularly true of students just before exam time at least in Cambridge!

Another group is those who drink coffee too late at night. – This seems not to affect me but many I know struggle to get to sleep at night if they drink coffee after about 4.00pm.

Treating Insomnia with Aromatherapy means working with the whole person, and working with their depression, anxiety, pain and whatever else they present with.

I use Lavender, Ginger, Rosemary, and Chamomile essential oils a lot for dealing with pain issues, Frankincense, and Bergamot for those who are depressed and Rose for those suffering from Grief issues.

Fortunately a number of these oils, Lavender, Chamomile and Frankincense in particular can also directly aid sleep so it is possible to utilise one of the permaculture principles of each element having multiple functions. It is rarely that I use an oil without having two or more reasons for choosing it.

If you struggle to sleep, why not book an aromatherapy massage.
