Aromatherapy is not always integrated with massage – there are many ways that essential oils can be used to positive effect. Other methods include inhalation, bathing, lotions/creams and compresses.

Essential oils

Choosing the right combination of essential oils for an individual can promote improved health, boost the immune system, ease pain, reduce stress, calm the mind and help to balance the whole person.

Essential oils are manufactured in the leaves of aromatic plants during the process of photosynthesis and then stored in a variety of places, such as in the flowers, leaves, fruit, seeds, etc, depending on the plant. They are extracted by a variety of methods, including distillation and expression. Each individual essential oil has its own chemical components and therefore, its own individual therapeutic properties.


Massage can promote healing and recovery of muscle and soft tissue, delivering fresh oxygenated blood with vital nutrients and minerals to the area. A massage helps you to relax and unwind, which makes it ideal for combating the stresses of everyday life.
