What is aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the use of concentrated aromatic plant extracts, known as essential oils, for therapeutic purposes.  It is the oldest form of medicine known to man and has been used for thousands of years to promote physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Essential oils are comprised of many compounds that each have therapeutic properties, affecting the mind, body and spirit in various ways.

How does aromatherapy massage for detoxification work?

Essential oil molecules are lipophilic (oil soluble) though are generally too concentrated to be applied directly to the skin so they are typically blended with a plant or vegetable based carrier oil and then applied to the skin.

As essential oil molecules are very small they can then pass through the skin during massage and enter the blood stream. They are then transported to all tissues and body organs to deliver their therapeutic effects.

The massage techniques used in an aromatherapy massage are a powerful yet gentle combination of eastern and western techniques that connect pressure point movements to balance meridians and the nervous system. They also release accumulated tension, using lymphatic drainage techniques to detoxify the body and encourage healthy circulation.

When using aromatherapy massage for detoxification, specific essential oils with therapeutic properties that support this will be blended in accordance to the recipient’s current state of health.
