Clinical Aromatherapy

Clinical Aromatherapy Services – A perfect fusion of traditional knowledge and the science of essential oils

Our Clinical Aromatherapist, RoseMarie Counihan, offers one to one consultations here at Bury Physio.

RoseMarie is a member of the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (IFPA) and achieved a distinction in her diploma in Clinical Aromatherapy.

RoseMarie is passionate about the wonderful powers of the natural ingredients in essential oils that can aid people with the acute and chronic symptoms that they experience.

About Aromatherapy:

RoseMarie does not use massage, but instead creates bespoke aromatherapy treatments for her clients. These treatments can directly impact symptoms being experienced and to a large extent ameliorate them, sometimes completely. Treatments are individually tailored to the client’s needs and preferences.

Because the creation of essential oils is part of the natural life cycle of a plant or tree, they are very easily assimilated into our bodies. Once assimilated, the essential oil molecules react with the body’s systems to create numerous different effects. These can include being anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, balancing, antiviral, hormone balancing, stress relieving, sedative and diuretic among others.

The traditional knowledge of how plants and oils aid healing and give pain relief is now being supported by a growing body of scientific research into the natural compounds found in plants and how they interact with the body and mind.



Prior to the initial consultation, RoseMarie will send a detailed health questionnaire to the client which needs to be returned at least 72 hours before the first consultation.

The questionnaire answers are an essential element of the client’s safe care, to ensure that the essential oils will not impact adversely on a client’s health conditions nor adversely affect the efficiency of their medication.

The initial Consultation (60 Minutes)

This will:

  • Allow a detailed discussion of the client’s health history, family medical history and current symptoms set out on the questionnaire.
  • Identify any precautions needed in the light of the client’s health history or medication.
  • Help to identify the client’s aims and expectations for the treatments.
  • Allow for a discussion of the various delivery methods for treatments and the client’s needs and preferences.
  • Provide a broad plan for the series of treatments.
  • Include an additional 1-2 hours for post consultation research and blending time.

Follow up Consultations (30-45 minutes)

At a follow up consultation, clients will:

  • Discuss with RoseMarie their experience of the treatments provided.
  • Be able to discuss any changes in symptoms arising from the treatments.
  • Consider any changes to treatments that might be needed.
  • The follow up consultation fee includes any additional post consultation research and blending time.

Following a consultation

Bespoke treatments will be made by RoseMarie and will be available for collection from Bury Physio clinic 14 days after the consultation. Alternatively, they can be posted to the client if required, for the cost of postage and packing.

Written advice will be provided on the treatments prepared and their safe use.

Repeat Treatments

Requests for repeat treatments can be made by telephone or email. Once the mini-screening questions are answered, RoseMarie can either prepare the treatment for collection or advise if a follow up consultation is required.
