ou may have noticed that we often offer aromatherapy as a way to enhance the massage experience. This spa treatment, which utilizes the fragrances from natural herbs and oils, has many wonderful benefits that we hope to share with you.
As these essential oils are inhaled or applied to the body during the aromatherapy massage, they are absorbed into the bloodstream. The healing properties are felt more completely through this, and they may help to detoxify and purify the body. This has a wonderful reviving effect, and can contribute to many other physical and emotional benefits.
WHY SHOULD I ADD AROMATHERAPY TO MY MASSAGE”?
While massages are already designed to soothe aching muscles and relieve any physical discomfort, the addition of essential oils elevates this to a new level. Certain oils are also incredible for treating inflammation of the skin or joints. Feel the tension release as our trained massage therapists carefully apply the oils to key areas of the body.
WHICH AROMATHERAPY DO YOU USE?
The essential oil for your aromatherapy massage can have a great effect on your mood. Each essential oil has unique emotional benefits. Oils like chamomile, rose maroc, and turquoise sage all have calming properties, and complement the relaxing experience of a massage very well. For a grounding and warming effect, vanilla chai spice is the perfect choice. We also offer the choice of calendula orange myrtle, for re-energizing and uplifting spirits. All of our massage therapists are well-versed in aromatherapy, and are dedicated to helping you pick an option that will provide the experience you desire.
HOW LONG DOES THE BENEFITS LAST?
The benefit of aromatherapy extends beyond just the massage session. The sense of smell is powerful, and the body connects the scent of the oils with the experience of the treatment. Just the scent of the essential oils used during an aromatherapy massage can take us back to that place of relaxation and serenity, even long after you leave
