Aromatherapy massage is an alternative therapy where the massage is performed with oils extracted from herbs, fruits and flowers. These highly concentrated plant oils are called essential oils and enhance the massage benefits.
The nostrils are a part of the brain’s limbic system which controls emotions and hormones and influences the nervous system. The inhalation of the essential oil molecules during the massage leads to different oils sending different messages to the limbic system.
These messages may affect the body’s heart rate, blood pressure levels, stress levels, digestion, breathing, memory and body immunity. Moreover, essential oils are also absorbed throughthe skin during the massage.
After a consultation, our aromatherapy massage therapists at Wellness Clinic Brisbane choose and use one or more essential oils for the massage based on your requirements. The oils are then mixed into the massage oil or lotion and used for the massage. If required, our therapists may also suggest a blend to take home and use in between massage treatments.
