What is Aromatherapy Massage?

Aromatherapy massage combines the natural therapeutic properties of essential oils with traditional Swedish massage techniques. Essential oils derived from plants, flowers, seeds, and herbs are diluted in a carrier oil and applied to the skin during the massage. The oils are absorbed into the bloodstream, releasing their aromatic molecules which stimulate the part of the brain that controls emotions, memories, and creativity. This triggers a relaxation response, reducing feelings of anxiety and stress.

In aromatherapy massage, different essential oil blends are chosen for their specific effects. For example, lavender is calming, ylang ylang enhances mood, and bergamot relieves tension. The massage therapist will select the appropriate oils based on your emotional and physical needs. As they perform classic massage techniques like kneading, rolling, and gliding strokes over the body, you inhale the aromatic vapours through your nose and absorb the oils through your skin. This dual absorption makes aromatherapy massage doubly beneficial.
