AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE

 

Aromatherapy massage is a holistic therapy, treating the mind, body and spirit by using essential oils extracted from plants to massage the body, thus combining the beneficial effects of the oils with the power of touch.  In aromatherapy treatments essential oils are applied externally, but their penetrative power is so great that they can act on the internal organs.


In aromatherapy massage, specific essential oils are chosen to suit the condition and temperament of the client and blended with carrier oil, which is then applied to the body using various techniques. The complete treatment lasts an hour.

 
Essential oils isolated from plants have been used therapeutically for many centuries. Their medicinal use is recorded as early as 4500 BC, by Greeks, Romans and Egyptians. They are highly volatile, odorous oils extracted from a wide variety of plants from all over the world.  They are found in all parts of the plant, including leaves, flowers, fruits, twigs, roots, bark wood and resins.  Most of these oils have antiseptic properties; some are antiviral, others anti-inflammatory, pain relieving, antidepressant or expectorant.
