Aromatherapy Massage

The nostrils are connected to a part of the brain called the limbic system.  The limbic system controls emotion and influences the nervous system and hormones.

The Aromatherapy massage is a treatment where the massage gel is combines with essential oils from plant and herb material to assist in the healing of body, mind and spirit.  When you inhale these oils, messages are transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress levels, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion and the immune system.

Each essential oil has different properties – some calm, while other energize.  Aromatherapy Massage is especially suited to conditions involving stress or stress-related conditions such as insomnia, headache, back pain or digestive disorders.  The most effective way of incorporating the healing benefits of essential oils into the body is through gentle, relaxing, full-body massage.

For your treatment, one or more essential oils may be selected based on what you need and are missed with the massage gel.  Brad will keep a record of your special blend on file for your next visit.  He may also suggest a blend you can use at home between massage treatments.
