Aromatherapy Massage is the perfect pairing of two ancient alternative healing modalities, Aromatherapy and Massage Therapy. In Aromatherapy Massage, essential oils are incorporated into the oil that is massaged into your skin. Alternately, essential oils may be diffused into the air. Aromatherapy is used to relieve tension, reduce pain and inflammation, influence mood, ease cramping, aid digestion and relieve sinus congestion. The massage therapist can select oils that are relaxing, energizing, stress-reducing and balancing, etc. One of the most common essential oils used in aromatherapy massage is lavender. Aromatherapy massage is particularly suited to stress-related conditions or conditions with an emotional component.
