Aromatherapy massage uses highly concentrated plant oils, known as essential oils.
During this treatment essential oils will be inhaled & transmit messages to the limbic system, affecting heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion, and the immune system.
Each essential oil has different healing properties. Your therapist will guild you through the most appropriate oil for your concerns.
Here are some widely used essential oils and their properties:
- Calming - lavender, camomile.
- Uplifting - ylang ylang, rose, neroli.
- Energising & cleansing - rosemary & lemon.
- Decongesting - eucalyptus, pine & tea tree.
