What is Aromatherapy? 

Aromatherapy, or essential oil therapy, uses essential oils and other aromatic compounds with the aim of improving one’s health or mood. These oils can be used topically and/or via inhalation.

According to the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy, aromatherapy is, “incorporating the use of essential oils, hydrosols, and carrier oils for holistic healing. Aromatic oils and water are used for their therapeutic properties to heal the mind, body and spirit, returning the body to a state of equilibrium”.

So why consider an Aromatherapy massage?

When combining aromatherapy with massage therapy, you are able to enhance your session. Your massage therapist will first help you choose a specific essential oil that fits your goals. During your massage, your massage therapist will place the essential oils on specific spots of your body, while you deeply inhale the aromas. Not only will you feel the immediate results, but you will also experience long-term results from aromatherapy massage as well.
