Aromatherapy is a holistic body massage treatment using essential oils extracted from plants. It is extremely effective in alleviating tension and fatigue and helps in invigorating the body. The essential oils can affect mood, ease anxiety and promote deep relaxation. The treatment helps improve physical and emotional wellbeing.
The benefits of aromatherapy are far reaching. The combination of the massage and the medicinal and therapeutic qualities of the essential oils can soothe, revitalise, encourage positive thinking and boost the immune system. Thus enabling the body to heal itself.
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for medicinal and cosmetic purposes, but when distilled from the plant they become a hundred times more concentrated. The physical, physiological effects on the body are therefore increased.
These oils combined with a Swedish massage gives that extra to a massage. During the massage you inhale the essential oils and absorb them through your skin. They can promote beneficial changes in your mind and body by affecting the limbic system, a region of the brain known to be involved in emotion.
The therapeutic properties of the oils together with the massage stimulates the skin, muscles, nerves and organs of the body. During the massage the skin is warmed and the blood drawn to the surface. This increases circulation and encourages the elimination of toxins from the body. As the circulation increases, the oils are absorbed through the skin and carried around the body. This allows the oils healing properties to work to their best effect.
Each essential oil has it’s own healing properties. A unique blend of aromatherapy oils are used for each individual tailored to your own concerns and needs for maximum benefit.
