Aromatherapy is the art of applying essential oils combined with relaxation massage to improve physical and emotional well-being. The essential oils have been extracted from various parts of certain plants. They are easily absorbed through the skin with a gentle caring massage by a professional aromatherapist and works on a physical, mental and emotional level.
The selected essential oils and base massage oil are combined to create a unique mix for each person's needs. The oils can also be used in oil burners for inhalation or in the bath to provide therapeutic outcomes.
Swedish massage was originally developed in the late 18th Century by a Swedish fencing master as the first systematic system of therapeutic massage in the West. The strokes and movements of Swedish massage are each conceived as having specific therapeutic benefits. One of the primary goals of Swedish massage is to speed venous return from the extremities. Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissue of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It improves circulation and stretches the ligaments and tendons, keeping them supple and young.
Swedish massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system while at the same time relating the nerves themselves. Swedish massage reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has specific clinical uses in a medical or remedial therapy.
Remedial massage involves the manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress and to promote health and wellness.
