Aromatherapy is the ancient practice of using natural essential oils from plants for their aromatic benefits. These essential oils are known to enhance one’s health and well-being. Inhaled through the nose or absorbed through the skin, essential oils are known to alter one’s mood, increase cognitive abilities, relieve pain, induce energy and vitality. Enjoying essential oil scents are a treat not only to your sense of smell but to your entire sense of well-being.
When you breathe in essential oils, messages are sent to the part of the brain that controls emotions, motivation and the regulation of responses, just to name a few. These messages then positively affect the heart rate, stress levels, blood pressure, breathing, memory, our ability to learn, digestion as well as our immune system. The powerful sense of smell triggers emotions and can identify more than 10,000 unique scents.
Different scents ignite different emotions. Some are familiar scents that trigger personal memories such as the smell of freshly baked cookies, others are more universal such as lavender whose scent promotes relaxation or mint whose scent uplifts and energizes.
Aromatherapy is a great addition to our massage program, offering an entirely new, sensory dynamic that only makes the massage experience all the more richer and multi-layered. And the affordable cost easily fits into any budget.
Aromatherapy can help your students focus before a final exam, employees (or yourself) for that important meeting, relax and ease tension to help you sleep better or energize you without the side effects of too much caffeine. Imagine while getting your massage, your shoulders and neck easily relaxing while breathing in quality essential oils that put your mind at ease, give you clarity and bring you back to balance with a keen sense of well-being.
Students, employees, clients, prospects or guests choose between our relaxing and energizing aromatherapy blends or a customized blend can be made just for you at the event. We let them smell each choice before their massage. Whichever they pick is what they need in that moment. For people with sensitivities, we are careful to allow them to smell the great aroma without having the essential oils touch their skin or they can simply opt out of this portion and still receive a relaxing yet energizing massage by our licensed, trained, professional massage therapists. It’s all about choice.
In addition to offering Aromatherapy services at massage events, we also offer aromatherapy sugar scrub do-it-yourself kits. These kits can be available at the actual event for your guests to take home and enjoy. Yes, you can make your own sugar scrub using our essential oils and enjoy long after the event is over. You skin and nose will thank you over and over again.
Alternatively, you can order the kits independently to organize your own event. These do-it-yourself kits provide everything you need to run your own independent event. Since the kits are shipped, there is no extra travel cost. It promotes leadership for your students and community with your employees. Because your people are running the event there is a sense of ownership and it gives people the opportunity to take on leadership roles.
The number of kits you order determines how many scents we include. Generally, we send 3 essential oil blends to choose from, giving everyone choice of what they like best or we can send different oils so everyone can create their own blends. These Aromatherapy kits can also be used to make lip balm, lotions and sprays.
