At the Bodywork Centre Hexham we offer a variety of aromatherapy massage treatments.
Overview of aromatherapy
Aromatherapy massage is Swedish massage therapy using massage oil or lotion that contains essential oils (highly concentrated plant oils). During an aromatherapy massage, you inhale these essential oil molecules or absorb them through your skin.
Benefits of aromatherapy
Some of the health benefits of aromatherapy include its ability to reduce anxiety, ease depression, boost energy levels, speed up the healing process, eliminate headaches, boost cognitive performance, induce sleep, strengthen the immune system, reduce pain, improve digestion and increase circulation.
What to expect
Massage therapists who are highly knowledgeable about aromatherapy tend to use quality essential oils in their massage oils. Once the massage oil is selected, the therapist leaves the room so you can disrobe and lie on the massage table. You will usually be asked to lie face down under a sheet.
