What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the use of Essential Oils (the volatile oils extracted from plants) for the relief of various issues. Aromatherapy can be added to your Massage Session in 2 ways:
- Aromatic diffusion: Essential oils are placed in an oil “burner”. The heat from the burner causes the essential oils to disperse into the air where they are inhaled by the client. Depending on the oil, the client can either be calmed or invigorated by the scent of the oil. It can also help with alleviating headaches, stress/tension, and mental fatigue.
- Direct Skin Application: Essential oils are diluted in a carrier oil (World Tree Therapies uses Grapeseed or Safflower Oil) and spread across the skin where they are then absorbed through the pores. Not only does the client get the benefit of the oil’s scent (as their own body heat will help disperse some of the molecules into the air), but the oils are capable of entering through the skin to the blood stream to have direct effects on the body. Many oils can help reduce inflammation, ease pain, and prevent muscle spasm.
Aromatherapy can be an excellent compliment to any massage, bringing relief in a variety of forms. World Tree Therapies uses therapeutic grade Essential Oils from Amrita (we are currently phasing out Aura Cacia brand in order to bring you a full line of Amrita Essential Oils. Some essential oils will be unavailable in Amrita brand as we order new oils).
