An aromatherapy massage combines the benefits of massage therapy with essential oils. Essential oils are an aromatic essence distilled from a single plant extract and are renowned for their sedative, stimulating and analgesic properties.
Aromatherapy massage offers the purest form of healing treatment. It not only relaxes us but it also invigorates and refreshes our body from head to toe. The benefits of massage affect the body as a whole and it particularly influences the activity of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic and nervous system of the body.
Aromatherapy helps muscle into deep relaxation thus healing the body of the day to day tensions. It also relieves water retention, stimulates the lymphatic system, improves the immune system and gets rid of the body toxins naturally. The body needs aromatherapy massage as often as possible. Benefits of aromatherapy massage include the following:
• Harmonizes the whole body and mind by relaxing and balancing it
• Supports the body own healing process and strengthens it
• Relieves the body of the toxins thus maintaining a healthy body
• Rejuvenates and refreshes the body, mind and spirit instantly
Apart from the relaxing the body, aromatherapy also helps in the following conditions:

Aromatherapy is a great natural compliment or alternative to other health treatment options like the prescribed medications. But one thing must be remembered always: aromatherapy massage is not the “cure” to major illness but it is effective at alleviating many of the discomforts associated with them.
