What to Expect During an Aromatherapy Massage
Although you can find aromatherapy massage at almost every massage clinic or spa, the style of treatment, degree of customization, and the quality of essential oils varies widely.
Many massage therapists have one or more premixed blends and will select the blend based on your health concerns. A massage for relaxation and stress relief would likely include lavender essential oil, while an uplifting massage may include rosemary essential oil. Our therapist may involve you in the selection process by asking you to smell various blends.

The quality of the essential oils varies widely. Essential oils are different from oils made with synthetic scents which don’t have therapeutic effects. Our Consultant is highly trained highly knowledgeable about aromatherapy that we use quality essential oils in our massage oils.
