Aromatherapy Massage is the holistic art of blending and applying essential oils extracted from plants to alleviate stress and imbalance within an individual.
We offer an authentic Aromatherapy massage technique designed by Marguerite Maury in 1930s. Maury was an Austrian biochemist who contributed to holistic vision of Aromatherapy by using individually prescribed essential oils in massage to achieve balance between physical, psychological and emotional human nature, thereby balancing and normalizing the whole person.
The aromatherapy massage incorporates techniques such as lymphatic drainage, reflexology, acupressure/shiatsu, polarity therapy and Swedish massage. It is specifically designed to achieve relaxation and act on body systems, such as skin, immune, circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, respiratory, digestive, endocrine, nervous system and the mind. It is a full body massage, starting with back, gluteal’s and back of the legs, followed by scalp, face, abdomen and front of the legs and feet.
