What is Aromatherapy Massage?
Aromatherapy uses essential oils that are thought to have healing properties. These oils are the concentrated essences taken from the flowers, fruit, seeds, leaves and bark of certain plants – there are about 400 essential oils, however, only about 40 are commonly used in Aromatherapy Massage. Aromatherapy Massage can boost well being, relieve stress and help to refresh your body and mind. A relaxing Aromatherapy Massage might have lavender or bergamot for example, but the 'cocktail' may change up for a massage for sore muscles that may include peppermint and eucalyptus oils.
How does aromatherapy work?
There are a couple of theories to explain how aromatherapy might work. The first is that you directly absorb the oils through the skin into your bloodstream. The oil can then travel through your body and have an effect on a specific organ or function in your body.
Aromatherapy Massage is the alternative therapeutic technique which combines the natural therapeutic properties of the essential oils and the healing power of massage therapy. Aromatherapy Massage is performed on nude clients; however the therapist will leave the room so that you can undress in privacy. Aromatherapy massage not only has powerful physical, emotional and mental effects but it is also described as a great relaxing and rejuvenating experience. The benefits of aromatherapy massage affect a wide range of health conditions of nervous, circulatory, lymphatic, immune and muscular systems. Aromatherapy Massage is a pleasant method for mental clarity, relaxation, stress and headaches alleviation.
