Aromatherapy Treatments

Aromatherapy is the use of scented essential oils during a chosen service to elicit a particular response from the inhalation of a certain scent. Some aromatherapy oils help intensify relaxation, like lavender, while others may help to reduce pain, minimize tension, calm the mind, or boost energy. Aromatherapy can be applied in a number of services such as during a therapeutic or relaxation massage or during a facial treatment.
