Hot Oil Aromatherapy Massage
Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils to obtain specific moods, promote healing and ease muscle pain, aches and sprains. When you receive a massage with essential oils, the oils are absorbed into your skin and you inhale the aroma, providing a physical and emotional benefit. Aromatherapy massage is often an effective treatment for numerous ailments. The massage therapist can work with you to make a customized massage oil and massage pressure based on your needs. Adding warm massage oil and essential oil to the experience with flowing long stroke massage can be blissfully relaxing and wonderfully comforting. This will inspire your mind and let your body float away.
Each essential oil has different healing properties. For example, some calm while others energize. Here are some widely used essential oils and their properties:
Aches & Pains - Warming blend including clove, sweet birch, rosemary and cypress
Promotes circulation, helps aid tissue recovery and decreases pain.

Anxiety Release - Lavender and chamomile
Eases nervousness, irritability and apprehension.

Known for their calming properties, lavender, chamomile and vetiver are combined with uplifting aromas of citrus and clary sage. The result of this Aromatherapy technique is pure tranquility.
Deep Relaxing - Lavender
Reduces inflammation, calms the mind and promotes restful sleep.
A foundation of patchouli, grapefruit and sweet orange help highlight two unique lavender oils. First, English true lavender is used to both reduce pain and inflammation and act as a mild antidepressant and calming agent.
