Aromatherapy massage uses the restorative properties of essential oils to relax and heal your body and mind. Essential oils are concentrated liquid extracts of various potentially beneficial plants, flowers, fruit, and barks and have healing and revitalising properties. An essential oil is "essential" in the sense that it contains the "essence of" the plant's fragrance — the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived.
Each essential oil used in aromatherapy is said to have different properties. For example, some calm and make you feel relaxed while others energise, uplift, or decongest. Oils are blended to suit the individual needs of a client.
Aromatherapy massage involves flowing holistic massage techniques using essential oils combined with skin enriching carrier oils to promote a deep sense of calm & relaxation, stimulating the body’s ability to rebalance and heal itself.
