What is Aromatherapy Massage?
A slower, lighter, gentler yet more luxurious massage than Swedish Massage.
Using a bespoke blend of essential oils and carrier oils to suit your needs and preferences this is massaged into the body, where it is easily absorbed via the skin so it can get straight to work in the body.
The aroma of the blend itself adds power to the treatment
How does Aromatherapy Massage Work?
Firstly Aromatherapy works by the aroma being picked up by the olfactory system (the aroma is breathed in via the nose where it gets taken into the olfactory system) The olfactory system is closely linked to the limbic system in the brain. It is here where memory and emotion are stored.
For me, smelling roses takes me straight back to childhood summers, making potions in my friends paddling pool using rose petals.
Smelling lavender can usually provoke a response of memory too, often reminding people of their grandparents. If Grandma was a kind person who was well-loved this may be a positive response. But if she was cold, mean and bad-tempered this may make you feel a more negative feeling. Lavender, in my experience is a bit of a ‘marmite’ essential oil, people generally either love it or hate it with little in between.
The second way Aromatherapy Massage works is by the massage itself. Massage helps the lymphatic system to do its job by moving lymph. It aids circulation and helps the body remove toxins. It calms and soothes stress and helps to reduce anxiety and lift low mood.
The carrier oils used will nourish and moisturise the skin. They are often packed with vitamins and minerals. The massage itself will also help the skin to renew itself (aiding desquamation)
