What is it and what should I expect?
This can be a much gentler massage than other forms of massage and uses various essential oils (concentrated plant oils) to promote both physiological and psychological benefits. After the short consultation, one or more essential oils are selected based on what you need and are mixed in with the massage oil or lotion. The subtle aroma of the essential oils will be around you during the massage. The massage strength can be tailored to your requirements.
After the massage, the massage therapist may suggest a blend that you can use at home in between massage treatments.
Depending on the area to be massaged you may be asked to remove some clothing, only to your level of comfort, prior to the massage. Your therapist will leave the room to allow you to do this.
