Aromatherapy Massage is a soothing massage treatment that is performed with highly concentrated plant oils, called essential oils. Each essential oil has different healing properties such as cleansing, calming, energizing or uplifting. It is a very effective treatment to relieve stress or improve anxiety.
Each aromatherapy oil has its own therapeutic benefit. Beyond their amazing smell, essential oils can significantly lift your mood. Some of the most commonly used oils are Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, Ylang-Ylang and Bergamot. Lavender oil, being the most versatile oil among those, is the most popular essential oil because it has several health benefits. The most common benefits are the following:
reduce stress and anxiety,
heals burns and cuts,
improves skin conditions such as eczema and acne,
balances blood sugar
and helps your body produce antioxidants.
Aromatherapy, thus, is also a form of alternative medicine that uses aromatic compounds for the purpose of altering a person's mind, mood, cognitive function or health. Through the application of fragrance oils all your senses will be stimulated during your massage treatment.
Massage therapists usually mix their own therapeutic aromatherapy oils. They mix a base oil such as sweet almond or grapeseed oil with essential oils to create the final blend. Before the session your therapist can help you choose between different oils and explain their effect. Depending on the desired result, therapists will then blend appropriate aromatherapy oils into the base oil based on your preference. The final mixture can contain a number of essential oils that are carefully selected for the best result.
For whom do we recommend aromatherapy massage?
This type of massage therapy will suit men and women both with a sophisticated taste. If you choose aromatherapy, be assured that it will leave you deeply relaxed and calm. In most spas you can also select and purchase the oil that was applied during your aromatherapy session. This way, you can continue using them even at home.
