What is aromatherapy massage?

Aromatherapy massage is a therapy using massage oils or lotions that contains essential oils (highly concentrated plant oils).

What is the main purpose of aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy, or essential oil therapy, refers to a range of traditional, alternative or complementary therapies that use essential oils and other aromatic plant compounds. Essential oils have been used for nearly 6,000 years, with the aim of improving a person’s health or mood.

How Aromatherapy oil works

Absorption – When applied to the skin, essential oils penetrate through the hair follicle and directly into your blood stream due to their very small molecular structure. They will last in your bloodstream for up to 8 hours still having their effect.

Inhalation – Every essential oil that is inhaled can have an anti-bacterial effect on your respiratory system and slowly makes its way into your blood stream having its effect.

Sense of Smell – Essential oils can affect your mood depending on your emotional or physical state at the time. The sense of smell is the most primitive of all our senses and is linked to some of the oldest and deepest parts of the brain. This can help you choose the correct oil for yourself just through smelling it as your body knows what it needs!

Precautions

A massage therapist should take your health history before the massage.

Essential oils may cause an allergic skin reaction.   It is important to avoid excessive use of aromatherapy oils and to only use oils that have been properly diluted by a carrier oil.  If you’re sensitive to scents, aromatherapy may not be right for you.

If you have a health condition, or are pregnant or breastfeeding, check with your doctor to see if this type of massage is safe for you.

Please ensure you tell us upon booked of any bruises, skin rashes, inflamed or weak skin, unhealed wounds, tumors, abdominal hernia, or fractures.  If a massage is painful, tell your massage therapist immediately.
