Uplift the Mood and Calm Emotions

Instead of brooding in your anger or turning to a glass of wine to settle your nerves there’s a much healthier and effective option. Aromatherapy massage targets your strongest sense – your sense of smell – to calm you down and lift you out of your emotional distress. Look for citrus essential oils like orange and grapefruit which are well-known mood boosters.
Eases Anxiety and Depression
Guest suffering from clinical anxiety or depression should remain under the care of a qualified medical practitioner. For additional support, however, you may see some improvement in your depressive and anxious feelings by incorporating Aromatherapy massage to your medical treatment and medication. Aromatherapy can help because areas of the brain that affect emotions and feelings can be triggered in a positive way by aromatic plant essences such as Bergamot and Ylang Ylang.
Promote Restful Sleep and Ease Insomnia

There’s a powerful dual effect helping you get your zzz’s. First, body massage is extremely relaxing in its own right as it promotes the release of feel-good hormones. Then there’s the therapeutic action of essential oils such as Lavender, Chamomile and Valerian. These plants contain compounds that have been shown scientifically to induce sleep and treat insomnia.

Whether you’re not getting enough sleep or you’re being pulled in a thousand directions due to work or family obligations, sometimes you’re not functioning at your best. This is the time to look after you by booking an Aromatherapy massage. Not only will you leave more relaxed and recharged, but certain essential oils are proven to stimulate the brain, helping with your concentration, focus and mental clarity.
