Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy Massage is massage therapy that is done with highly concentrated plant oils, called essential oils, added to the massage oil or lotion. The oils are used to affect your mood and alleviate pain.

How does Aromatherapy Massage work?

Lavendar_oil_1.jpgThe nostrils are attached to a part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones.  When you inhale essential oil molecules, messages are transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion, and the immune system. Essential oils are also believed to be absorbed through the skin. Each essential oil has different healing properties. For example, some calm while others energize.

What makes Aromatherapy Massage different?

Aromatherapy massage
is primarily slow, gentle, rhythmic movements . The massage technique helps muscles melt into deep relaxation, relieves water retention, de-stresses the body, mind and spirit, stimulates the lymphatic system, improves the immune response, and assists the body to naturally release toxins.
