Aromatherapy Massage

Natural holistic massage harmony

Aromatherapy massage is a massage treatment where therapeutic essential oils are carefully introduced by the therapist into the massage oil. These essential oils are derived from flowers, herbs, plants, trees and even spices. They all have a unique fragrance and are known for their special therapeutic qualities and properties.

They work in multiple ways. The molecules in the oil are absorbed into the skin and transported by the bloodstream throughout the body. Also, every oil has its unique ‘physiological’ property. Some have a warming effect on muscles and joints while other oils are considered to have a ‘calming,' ‘cleansing,' uplifting’ and even ‘de-congesting’ effect. In addition, the oils ‘scent’ itself is believed to have psychological effects. The nerve receptors in the nose convert scent molecules into electrical impulses and send them to the brain’s limbic system linked to emotions and long-term memory.
