Aromatherapy massage is Swedish massage therapy using massage oil that contains essential oils (highly concentrated plant oils).

During an aromatherapy massage, you inhale these essential oil molecules and absorb them through your skin. They are thought to promote beneficial changes in your mind and body by affecting the limbic system, a region of the brain known to influence the nervous system.

Use of therapeutic essential oils in massage is being explored for the following conditions:

  • Anxiety
  • Dementia symptoms
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Menstrual pain
  • Supportive care for people with conditions such as cancer
  • And many more
