At Lakiko Aromatherapy we specialize in aromatherapy massage, natural skin care products and yoga.
Aromatherapy is the use of concentrated plant-derived aromatic oils (essential oils) for health and wellbeing purposes. Below are just a few examples of the active ingredients naturally occurring in essential oils and their effects, which have been extensively researched:
Ethers: anti-depressant and relaxing;
Terpenes: bactericidal, antiseptic, antiviral, expectorant;
Esters: fungicidal and relaxing;
Aldehydes: sedative and anti-inflammatory;
Alcohols: stimulating and uplifting.
Generally speaking, essential oils bring emotional and physical balance, stimulating the ability of the body to produce what it needs to reach its optimal status (homeostasis). The best way to enjoy and benefit from essential oils is certainly through massage.
During a brief consultation, a professional aromatherapist will recommend the oils most suitable for you based on your needs and objectives at that particular time. The oils chosen are then mixed in a blend and diluted in a carrier oil used in the massage. Massage alone has numerous proven benefits, such as relieving back and neck pain or muscular tension, helping in reducing stress, increasing the production of “happy” hormones (oxytocin and serotonin), decreasing the production of “stress” hormones (adrenalin and cortisol), and the list goes on.

Meet the Business Owner
Over ten years ago I started making my own bodycare products using essential oils and other natural ingredients, such as aloe vera gel and sweet almond oil. People got curious and started to try some, coming back for more! I decided then to undertake official aromatherapy training. I wanted to make sure that I was using essential oils safely and competently.
I graduated as an Aromatherapist with ITEC in 2012. This course was also my first introduction to massage, which brought my experience with essential oils to a whole new level and gave me a deeper insight into anathomy, physiology and the value of therapeutic touch. I had found my mission!
In the meantime, my own search for a holistic discipline that could keep my body, mind and soul in good shape, led me to yoga. After years of practice, I am now a certified yoga teacher (Sivananda Centre, in Rome – Italy).
