The Power of Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy is the art and science of using essential oils to enhance well-being. These concentrated plant extracts are renowned for their therapeutic properties, ranging from relaxation to invigoration. When seamlessly integrated into a massage session, aromatherapy introduces a new dimension to the overall experience.

Stress Relief and Relaxation

Aromatherapy is celebrated for its stress-relieving capabilities. Essential oils like lavender, chamomile, and bergamot are renowned for their calming effects. When diffused or applied during a massage, these scents work synergistically with the hands of the massage therapist, inducing a deep sense of relaxation. Clients often find themselves immersed in a tranquil state, allowing tension to dissipate.

Enhanced Mood and Emotional Well-Being

Certain essential oils, such as citrusy bergamot or uplifting peppermint, have mood-boosting properties. Aromatherapy massage can help combat feelings of anxiety or low mood, promoting emotional balance. The olfactory system’s direct connection to the brain’s limbic system, the seat of emotions, ensures that the benefits extend beyond the physical realm.

Improved Sleep Quality

Incorporating sleep-inducing essential oils, such as lavender or chamomile, into a massage can contribute to improved sleep quality. The calming aroma lingers post-massage, creating an ideal environment for relaxation and fostering a restful night’s sleep.

Pain Relief and Muscle Recovery

Essential oils like eucalyptus and peppermint are renowned for their analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. When applied topically during a massage, these oils can provide targeted relief to sore muscles and joints. The combination of skilled massage techniques and aromatherapy amplifies the therapeutic effects, making it particularly beneficial for those seeking pain relief.

Detoxification and Stress Reduction

Aromatherapy aids in the detoxification process by promoting the elimination of toxins from the body. Essential oils like juniper or grapefruit, known for their diuretic properties, can be incorporated into a massage to enhance lymphatic drainage. This not only supports physical detoxification but also contributes to stress reduction as the body releases built-up tension.

Jennifer is wonderful. She’s always very good at finding my sore spots and seems to intuitively know the right amount of pressure to use. I highly recommend her services.
Incredibly serene massage experience. I felt like a rubber band walking out of here.
I stumbled upon About Touch on Google. I made an appointment with Sarah. One massage and I was hooked! I cancelled all of my current massages and now see Sarah on a regular basis. I don’t know what I would do without Sarah and her amazing hands & feet!
I have gone to About Touch two different times. The office is small yet comfortable. I have low back and hip issues from a previous car accident a couple years ago and both times I went in tight and hurting and came out feeling much better. I would and have highly recommend this place to anyone looking for massage therapy.

Elena is amazing. Not only did her massage work help my back recover from two years of limping on an injured foot, she also gave me resources to help myself. She’s a natural educator who explained the physiology of my back like no other healthcare provider has done. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer others to Elena and About Touch.

I have been going to Jennifer for therapeutic massage for 7 years. I am so glad we found About Touch! Jennifer helped get my husband back to health after he broke his back. We have bought several gift certificates for friends and family. They have all loved to receive a massage as a gift!
