aromatherapy massage

Aromatherapy massage is a massage therapy but with highly concentrated plant oils, called essential oils, added to the massage oil or lotion.

How does aromatherapy massage work?
The nostrils are attached to a part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones.
When are you inhale essential oil molecules, messages are transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion and the immune system. Essential oils are also believed to be absorbed through the skin. Each essential oil has different healing properties for example, some while others energise.
Here are some widely used essential oils and their properties:
Calming - camomile, lavender, geranium.
Uplifting - ylang ylang, clary sage, rose, nerali.
Energising - rosemary.
Decongesting - eucalyptus, pine, tea tree. 

Why do people get aromatherapy massage?
Aromatherapy massage is particularly suited to conditions involving stress or improving emotionally related conditions. Stress and stress related conditions such as insomnia, headaches, digestive disorders and back pain are common conditions suitable for aromatherapy.
After the consultation one or more essential oils are selected based on what you need and are mixed in with the massage oil or lotion. The subtle aroma all the essential oils fill the air around you during the massage. After the massage we suggest a blend that you can use at home in between massage treatments.

Additional tips:
Don't eat a heavy meal before the massage.
If it's your first time at the spa arrive at least 10 minutes early to complete the necessary forms. Otherwise arrive at 5 minutes early so you can have a few minutes to rest and relax before starting the massage.
