Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of concentrated plant essences. The natural chemical compositions of the essential oils have been shown through research to possess therapeutic benefit such as being stimulants, anti-inflammatory, anti-infectious, anti-spasmodic, analgesic and relaxants.
Aromatherapy massage is the combination of therapeutic massage and application of a blend of essential oils. Oils are chosen to address the needs of the individual as a whole: mind, body and spirit. The depth and sequence of the massage is also tailored to their individual needs.
