Aromatherapy Associates   Off-peak
This venue offers discounts on off-peak appointments.

We are proud to trace a direct line back to the very beginnings of modern aromatherapy. Our studies began in the 1970s when Geraldine and Sue both trained under Micheline Arcier, student of aromatherapy founders Marguerite Maury, an Austrian biochemist and skincare pioneer, and Jean Valnet M.D., an expert in the science of essential oils.

This association with aromatherapy's earliest practitioners has provided an ongoing link to the traditional principles of aromatherapy and the benefits essential oils bring when applied in the right way.

Since those early days, Geraldine and Sue have maintained a deep passion for teaching, practising and blending oils. In 1985 Aromatherapy Associates was established to share the benefits of aromatherapy through a range of therapeutic-grade products and treatments. We've continued to develop and expand and our products are now sold at exclusive hotels, spas and retail outlets in over 30 countries worldwide.

Our company brings together a team of talented and committed people with unique and complementary skills. With experience in spas, therapy, product development and retail, we understand your business from every angle. Our hands-on approach enables us to provide a comprehensive service at every level. Thanks to our experience we develop products that therapists themselves love to use.

We are dedicated to sharing the positive benefits of essential oils as widely as possible. It's more than a business for us; it's a way of life. That's why in 1985 we helped set up the International Federation of Aromatherapists, an organisation dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of aromatherapy across the industry.

Our outlook is global, our approach about partnership, and we'll continue to use our skills and enthusiasm to build successful relationships with the world's best spas and hotels.

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for their exquisite aromas and natural healing powers. Rich in essential nutrients and antioxidants, plant oils encourage radiant, healthy skin, working at a cellular level to keep the complexion soft and looking youthful. By harnessing their therapeutic properties, aromatherapy works to improve our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Essential oils are made up of very small molecules, which means they can easily enter the blood stream, bringing their unique healing properties to every cell of the body. They are used to help ease muscular aches and pains, improve circulation and ease sinus congestion. They also have a positive effect on the skin, penetrating into the deeper layers to encourage the process of cellular renewal, enhance blood circulation and help problems such as acne, eczema and ageing skin.

Linked to the areas of the brain governing instinct, memory and emotion, our sense of smell is the most primitive of our senses. Through the pathways between smell and the deep centres of the brain, essential oils can have a dynamic effect on our emotional state. They can help transform our moods and move us from one state of mind to another.

Our treatments are firmly based on the traditional principles of aromatherapy developed by Marguerite Maury in the 1950s. Using eastern and western massage techniques, they stimulate the nervous system to release congestion and re-balance areas of the body affected by physical or mental stress. At the same time, the essential oils are absorbed into the bloodstream enhancing cell renewal, circulation and detoxification, while their aromas act on the deepest parts of the brain to enhance our mood and emotions.

So relaxing from beginning to end and tailored to how I was feeling on the day - certainly does what it says on the tin.

One of the best massage I ever had. The therapist was excellent and they really are the best for pregnancy massage! I would definitely recommend it.
The only downside was the girl at the reception, she was not very friendly

I really enjoyed the aromatherapy massage, my therapist listened to me and addressed problem areas accordingly and the room was very relaxing. I felt the flow of the massage was sometimes slightly lacking from one point to the next but I'm really happy overall. The staff were friendly and offered tea and chocolate with free samples based on your preference after the massage. I'd definitely recommend giving this a go. Although I was slightly late for my appointment but they still did the entire time I'd booked for plus consultation time which I thought was very kind. I've awarded 4 stars.

I had an absolutely wonderful experience at the Aromatherapy Associates. It is a luxury spa with great customer service. I had an intensive muscle release massage which was heaven!

This is exactly what a luxury salon should be like. Calming atmosphere, first class service and attention to detail. The therapist was lovely and the treatment perfectly tailored to my needs. It's pricey but worth it! I'll be coming back as often as I can afford to! Highly recommended.

The treatments at Aromatherapy Associates are just lovely and make me wanting to come back for more. The therapists are all very professional and they aren't incredibly chatty which is great (during the treatment) allowing you to have a peace of mind, relax and sleep! I came for the facial and Ida was really good in removing all my blackheads and was through in her treatment. I've gone back twice now, and I'm now making my 3rd appointment.

The best massage I've ever had. This venue is just off a side road near Harrods and is so quiet and peaceful. This is definitely an experience worth having. The venue is beautiful and the ambiance is so relaxed. Upon meeting my therapist we went through my consultation to decide which oils would suit my needs. I had a deep tissue massage and usually get bored around the 45 min mark however I thoroughly enjoyed all 1 hour 30 minutes of it. The massage left me feeling reinvigorated and calm. After the treatment I was given a herbal tea, almonds, dried fruit and Green & Black chocolate as well as some sample products which was such a lovely touch. I definite recommend!

By far the nicest facial I have ever had - the setting is extremely relaxing, and my skin was glowing for days afterwards.

Absolutely amazing! The rooms are spacious and very relaxing. My therapist explained everything before starting the backial. The cleaning and the massage where perfectly executed. I particularly appreciated that the therapist never left the room and massaged my feet while the mask worked on my back.

I had a deep cleanse facial. I thought the experience was fantastic & my skin is now glowing. I would definitely go back & highly recommend. My therapist (from memory her name was Laura) was excellent.

I visted the boutique a few weeks ago with my partner and felt the need to write a review about my experience with AA
Walking in we were greeted by the Manager of the boutique Jeylan (if spelt correctly) she delivered impeccable service she was attentive and very polite even gave us an insight to the bespoke peices within the boutique which gave it that extra special touch, shortly after we were shown our rooms spoken to in detail about products and techniques that would be used during the massage, this gave us a chance to mention any problem areas and concerns. I was very impressed with the vast knowledge of the products on offer.
The massage was perfect in every way the right amount of pressure was applied the massage was just as amazing the abience made us feel very relaxed and the calm surrounding just added to an already perfect experience.

Ending the massage we were given the option of a selection of herbal tea's of our choice along with some healthy snacks with an overview of aftercare, we were gifted with some samples of the amazing oils which I will be pruchasing on my return.
I have travelled and been to many spas around the world I can honestly say service that Aromatherapy Associates in Knightsbridge delievered impeccable and would most certainly recommend visiting this spa/boutique.
It made us feel special and all the worlds worries were left at the door, what an amazing day thank you to all the staff especially the manager with her kind words and warm presence.
10/10 for our overall experience.

I love this spa! It is so relaxing and civilised. From the moment you walk in and have a consulation with the therapist until you finish the treatment and relax with a nice a cup of tea - the whole experience is so soothing! The consultants listen and treat you accordingly. I definitely reccomend it and will be going back very soon.

Its a lovely salon, and very swish and comfortable, but I bought a 90 min massage and I think it lasted 70-75 mins for the actual massage, the rest of the time was taken up with a 'how are you feeling?' chat with the therapist, sniffing different oils, getting changed and redressed - all lovely to have, but I'd rather have had 90 mins of actual massage. The take home gift set selected for me (billed on Wahanda as worth £25) was actually a free GWP with Valentine's purchases (I know, because I got one with a purchase at that time) - again, very lovely, but the GWP, together with the short-changing on treatment time felt like, at best, overselling.

One of the best spas I've been to in London. My therapist, Michelle, is very passionate about her job and her excellent product knowledge is unbeatable.
The consultation was very thorough and Michelle correctly pointed out that I was using the wrong oil to try and destress (I was using Deep Relax in my bath before going to bed and she recommended Destress instead).
After evaluating my situation and deciding that boosting my immune system was the key priority, she worked with deep, precise pressure on my muscles especially my shoulders as I requested.
The warm welcome, tea and nibbles and delightful Aromatherapy Associates samples were exquisite gestures.
I can't recommend this place highly enough.

Best salon ever. My absolute favourite both for the results and the ambiance. Great location too. A bit expensive but you can see and feel the difference. Great samples to take home every time.
