Aromatherapy is the art of mixing essential oils in order to improve the body’s well-being, as well as that of spirit and mind. The oil of every plant contains its life force with aromatic and medicinal features.
Aromatherapy addresses the healing powers of the nature. Plant oils are chemically complex and have unique therapeutic characteristics. They can provide good emotional and health well-being and ease the common ailments and stress lifestyle conditions.
Aromatherapy massage is gentle, slow and rhythmic effleurage. The technique of aromatherapy massage lets muscles gain a deep relaxation, de-stresses the spirit, mind and body, eases water retention, improves the immune (lymphatic) system and helps the body to naturally release toxins.
Massage is vital for the body, as it’s not just a powerful therapy helping to recover from fatigue, tension or injury, but it’s also a powerful instrument to heal and nurture the human body. It can be considered a preventative therapy, which is valuable in promoting people being healthy. Massage is the best way to use essential oils, combining the balancing and healing properties of oils with the therapeutic power of the touch. It can affect the entire body system, especially the circulatory, muscular, nervous and immune systems.
