Aromatherapy uses natural essential oils for medicinal effect. The oils can enter the body through inhalation or through the skin by massage. Aromatherapy massage is the best way to enjoy aromatherapy, because you not only receive the therapeutic properties of essential oil, but also get the wonderful benefits of the massage itself.
My take on aromatherapy massage is to apply the essential oils with a skilful blend of Indian Ayurveda and Thai massage techniques.
The therapeutic action of the essential oils, when brought together with the revitalizing effects of massage, stimulate all of the organs in the body, plus the skin, muscles, nerves and glands.
The increased circulation of the blood and lymph also assists with the clearing away of toxins from the body, leaving you feeling thoroughly cleansed and refreshed.
Because essential oil can influence our emotions, aromatherapy can help to lift depression, soothe irritable nerves, and generally encourage a peaceful state of mind.
