Aromatherapy massage uses the application of therapeutic essential oils. It helps to release muscle tension and hydrates the skin providing immediate relaxation.
How does Aromatherapy work and what are the benefits?
People respond to the sense of smell on an emotional level more strongly than any other sense. A smell can trigger forgotten memories. The Limbic system is the area of the brain associated with smell and memory. The olfactory nerves are located within the nasal cavity and respond to particular aromas.
The information from the aroma is sent to the Limbic system which connects with other parts of the brain – the hypothalamus and pituitary gland – which control your hormones. The aromas trigger a variety of chemical actions within your body, including the release of specific chemicals that relax, calm, stimulate and create a general feeling of well-being.
Benefits of Aromatherapy Massage
Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy that treats the mind, body and spirit. When Essential Oils are applied to the body during a massage, these oils enter the skin through hair follicles where they are absorbed into the bloodstream and are circulated around the body. Aromatherapy has many benefits and can help to enhance mood to give you a feeling of well-being, reduce anxiety, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and relieve aches and joint pain.
