Aroma Therapeutic Massage
Aroma therapy is a form of healing with very old traditions. In aroma therapy aromatic ethereal oils from plants and trees are used to achieve health and wellbeing of the body and soul. Aroma therapy has a way of promoting happiness and satisfaction. The most important quality of the oils used is the ability to promote organisms ability to recover.
Aroma therapeutic massage is a part of aroma therapy, which effectiveness lies in the massaging of ethereal oils into the skin. With special massage techniques that are soothing and at the same time help to get rid of toxins, ethereal oils that are mixed with base oil are applied to the skin. The ethereal oils seep into the skin and enter the lymph- and blood stream and start to balance the organism. At the same time the organism contracts ethereal oils by the bronchial tubes, through the nose into the lungs.
After the aroma therapy massage the after-effects start to take place and the organism heals, purifies and the renewal of tissues takes place.
The ethereal oils are mixed with a base oil before being applied to the skin. The base oil consists of many useful compounds that nurture, soften and rejuvenate the skin.
The aroma therapeutic massage helps to relax and to heal the skin and the whole organism. Aroma therapeutic massage also helps to prevent illnesses.
During the session every customer is approached individually – the clients mental and physical state is analyzed and the appropriate oils are used.
