Aromatherapy is one of the most popular forms of alternative medicine that offers a wide range of physiological and psychological benefits. It alters a person’s mood and cognitive function, and in turn helps improve health. This type of therapy uses essential oils, along with different aromatic compounds and volatile plant materials, many of which have great therapeutic potential. Aromatherapy massage involves topical application of these aromatic-therapeutic oils, thus combining the benefits of aroma and massage therapies.

What to Expect:
Aromatherapy massage uses a special mix of essential oils, which are applied on the body through careful massage strokes and movements. These oils are often mixed with carrier oil such as apricot kernel, sweet almond or rapeseed oil. Depending on what you need or the conditions you want to be addressed, your massage therapist can use as many as five different oils in the mixture in order to relieve your mental or physical aches, pains, and stresses. Your Aroma therapist will often use oils like bergamot and lavender for a relaxing massage, while massages for sore muscles often use a mix of peppermint and eucalyptus oils.
The essential oils used in aromatherapy are highly concentrated, volatile plant extracts that are derived from roots, barks, leaves, seeds, and flowers. Their organic nature makes them very suitable for therapeutic treatments, which is why they are also used in various hydrotherapy, facial, and body treatments. Aromatherapy treatments often last for an hour, which is the approximate time required for the essential oils to take effect and enter the body through the skin.
