Aromatherapy is a type of alternative medicine that uses essential oils extracted from flowers, herbs, resins, and other natural materials to improve a person’s physical or emotional health. Although used for thousands of years by cultures all over the world, aromatherapy has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its ability to promote relaxation and stress relief. Let’s explore what exactly aromatherapy is and how it can benefit you during your spa services.
At our mobile spa, we believe that aromatherapy can be an invaluable addition to a massage or treatment; not only does it add an aesthetically pleasing quality to the atmosphere but it can also provide physical and mental benefits that enhance the experience of well-being. Essential oils can be absorbed through the skin or by inhalation. Using essential oils during massages can help reduce muscle tension, improve circulation, and reduce both mental and physical fatigue, making them a perfect addition to a massage, body scrub, or body masque. Furthermore, certain essential oils such as lavender are known for their calming effects which may help reduce feelings of stress or anxiety before and while getting a massage, soothing bath, or scrub. When inhaled, the scent molecules in oils travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain impacting the emotional center of the brain, the Amygdala, putting your mind at ease to receive the benefits of the treatment, leaving you in a balanced state of mind and feeling.
Our spa offers a range of aromatherapy oils to be used in our massage and treatments. These essential oils, such as lemon, lavender, orange, grapefruit, and eucalyptus, will help soothe and relax your body during your massage or spa treatment. These scents can help create an atmosphere conducive to relaxation while also providing additional physical and mental benefits that last after the treatment, contributing positively to your overall unwinding experience!
