AromatherapyAromatherapy uses essential oils extracted from plants and flowers to heal. Essential oils contain naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, hormones, antibiotics and antiseptics that are used to fortify the function of internal organs and boost the body's immune system.

While essential oils may be used in a variety of ways, they are most frequently mixed with oil and applied to the skin in the form of an Aromatherapy massage. This addition to the massage enhances the therapeutic and uplifting benefits.

There are hundreds of different scents which represent different (although sometimes similar) aspects. For example, Lavender is considered to be relaxing to both the nervous and the muscular system. It is reputed to be good for headaches as well. Peppermint, on the other hand, is stimulating particularly to the digestion system. Clary Sage is reputed to be helpful for hot flashes, hormonal balance and finding clarity in thought.

If you would like to turn your massage into an Aromatherapy session, after a few minutes of discussion two or three scents will be chosen to incorporate into your session.
