Aromatherapy massage is massage therapy but with highly concentrated plant oils, called essential oils, added to the massage oil or lotion.
When you inhale essential oil molecules, messages are transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion, and the immune system.
Essential oils are also believed to be absorbed through the skin and each oil has different healing properties.
Calming – chamomile, lavender, geranium Uplifting – ylang ylang, clary sage, rose, neroli Energizing – rosemary Cleansing – rosemary Decongesting – eucalyptus, pine, tea tree
After the massage, a Perfect Balance Ireland therapist may suggest a blend that you can use at home in between massage treatments.
