WHAT IS AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE?

Aromatherapy is the use of therapeutic oils extracted from natural plant matter in order to encourage good health, equilibrium and well being. The healing power of plants have been acknowledged by many cultures for thousands of years.

The combination of aromatherapy and massage makes an ideal form of treatment as it works on both the body and the mind. During an aromatherapy massage the aromatic molecules of the essential oils have a therapeutic effect both through inhalation and through absorption into the skin. The absorption process continues long after the massage has ended.

The essential oils are blended with a carrier oil to provide a medium for massage that is both extremely beneficial for a persons health as well as being thoroughly relaxing. An aromatherapy consultation will assist the therapist in selecting and blending essential oils to suit the individuals needs.

Can aromatherapy help me?

Aromatherapy treatments have both physiological and psychological effects. The combination of massage and the medicinal and therapeutic qualities of the essential oils can soothe, revitalise, uplift the spirit, and boost the immune system. Some of the health benefits of aromatherapy include its ability to reduce anxiety, relieve headaches, reduce pain, strengthen the immune system, increase circulation of blood and lymph and toxin removal.

Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch, which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Getting regular massage is an investment in your health. Just because massage feels like a pamper treatment doesn't mean it any less therapeutic. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best suits your needs.
