An Introduction to
Aromatherapy Massage

 

Aromatherapy massage is the enhancement of body, mind, and spirit with aromatic, botanical essential oils.

The essential oil of each plant is its life force containing both medicinal and aromatic characteristics, and it remains potent and stable when properly extracted from the plant.

These oils are obtained from the various parts of plants: leaves, flowers, bark, stems, berries, fruits, and roots. The oils provide tremendous healing and balancing properties when used according to proper guidelines.

Most often used in baths, massages, and inhalations, they are readily absorbed through the skin and, when inhaled, they affect the brain and its release of neuro-chemicals.

Depending on the essential oil used, aromatherapy can help you relax, enjoy, rejuvenate, increase mental alertness, and much, much more.
