What is Aromotherapy?

Massage combines the therapeutic power of touch with the properties of essential oils. The skin absorbs the oils to be taken to the bloodstream in a short time. Aromatherapy is a healing practice based on a holistic approach to healing rather than a modern scientific one.

The Benefits of Aromatherapy

The fragrance of an essential oil can directly affect your emotional state and even your lifespan! The stimulation of the aroma to the nerve cells triggers responses in the brain (the Limbic System in the brain). This system is directly connected to thoseparts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, and hormone balance.  Essential Oils can be used to combat stress and emotional trauma and can also stimulate production of hormones – energy or longevity! They can uplift, relax, treat conditions, improve skin, act as an anti-inflammatory, help with blood pressure, and improve balance.

We will explain the benefits of your desired aroma or fit one to your needs at the time of your visit, or you can contact us if you have any questions. Some oils will be used alone, others singularly. See our list of essential oils that are available to add to your massage experience.
