The method

The essential oil of your choice is applied onto the body and is gently massaged into the skin by the expert massage therapist using long strokes and varying amounts of pressure to encourage the absorption. The scent is also in the air and can be inhaled by the client for even further results. This technique also improves circulation, provides pain relief and stimulates the organs. The scented oils available include lavender and clary sage for relaxation and calm.

Geranium is also popular to improve your mood and eucalyptus is fantastic for clearing the sinuses.
