Brandon Essentials massage therapists can infuse any massage service with the benefits of aromatherapy scents and oils to deepen the effects of the massage by enhancing the massage's effects of relaxation and rejuvenation. Some very common aromatherapy products include massage oils, soaps, incense, and candles.
The word aromatherapy comes from the Latin word aroma meaning fragrance (or Greek, meaning "seasoning; any spice or sweet herb") and therapy meaning treatment. The idea of aromatherapy is nothing new; it has been around since the time of the Ancient Egyptians. The oils were extracted from various plants and used across multiple cultures for healing and relaxation.
Today, aromatherapy is used for relaxing and rejuvenation. It is believed to help the blood circulate properly, increase the amount of oxygen in the blood, and enhance the immune system.
