Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy is form of alternative and complimentary medicine based on the use of very concentrated “essential” oils from plants with various healing properties.

In aromatherapy these potent oils are mixed with a carrier (usually soybean or almond oil) or the oils are diluted with alcohol or water and rubbed on the skin, sprayed in the air, inhaled or applied as a compress. They should never be consumed.

Practitioners of aromatherapy massage believe that the aroma of these “essential” oils directly stimulates the brain or that the oils are absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream, where they can affect the whole body and promote healing.
