Aromatherapy massage is a specifically developed massage therapeutical practice, that employs highly concentrated plant oils and miscellaneous scents, called essential oils.
All these ingredients are mixed by a trained masseur and are then added to the massage oil or lotion, to be applied during the massage session itself…
It’s a fun fact to know, that the reason why aromatherapy is such a relaxing and joyful experience, is because human nostrils are attached to a part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones.
When you inhale essential oil molecules, its scent gets transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion, and the immune system.
Essential oils are also believed to be absorbed through the skin and considerably maintain and improve the person’s immunity!
