One of the most popular treatments on a spa’s menu, aromatherapy massage combines the power of essential oils with massage therapy, benefitting both the mind and the body.
During an aromatherapy massage, fragrant essential oils are applied to the skin using a carrier oil (usually coconut oil) . Essential oils are plant-based oils which are extracted from herbs, trees and flowers, and each oil has its own unique properties which provide therapeutic benefits.
Essential oils penetrate your body as they are absorbed through your skin. These essential oils impart benefits to both your mind and your body, including improving your mood, alleviating pain and detoxifying your body, depending on the oils used.

Aromatherapy massage therapy is a type of massage that uses essential oils to provide a therapeutic experience. The benefits of aromatherapy massage therapy include:
The process starts with a consultation where the therapist and the client discuss what kind of treatment is needed. The therapist then discusses which essential oils will be used for the given treatment
Next, a pre-massage oil is applied to the skin to help relax muscles and make it easier for them to absorb oils.
Then, a gentle massage technique is used on specific points on the body while applying diluted essential oils.
Finally, any remaining oil is massaged into the skin or removed with warm towels before finishing off with an application of protective lotion or cream.
