WHAT IS AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE?
Aromatherapy is a type of massage that includes specific scented essential oils with attention to your needs and health goals.
Aromatherapy massage merges two therapeutic practices to create wonderful results by mixing traditional massage's muscular and calming effects with the holistic benefits of scented essential oils.
Essential oils get extracted from the plant's essence, the cell that gives a plant its fragrant smell.
These scented oils may activate areas in the nose called smell receptors, which send messages through the nervous system to some brain regions, such as the limbic system, which plays a role in your emotions. They could also impact your hypothalamus. This part of the brain may recognize the oil and, as a result, it may create feel-good brain chemicals like serotonin. That's why aromatherapists say this therapy may directly affect your mental and physical well-being while promoting sleep.
Depending on your symptoms, we will choose the best-scented oils to use in your treatment to enhance the benefits of the massage.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SCENTED OILS USED IN AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE?
The scented oils used in aromatherapy massage can be classified depending on their unique properties and benefits.
For instance, Some of the most popular scented oils are lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, and rosemary.
We use lavender for its calming properties, while we usually choose peppermint if you need help easing muscle soreness. Meanwhile, we would select eucalyptus for its refreshing scent or rosemary for its invigorating properties.
WHAT ARE THE MAIN BENEFITS?
The combo of scented oils' fragrance and healing touch may help you:
Headache Relief - by using pressure points on the head & face with oils like ylang ylang
Improve circulation using scented oils like juniper berry and cypress
Enhance Mental Well-Being and mood with citrus oils.
Reduce Pain and Inflammation
