Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils, which are extracted from herbs, flowers, resin, woods and roots, are used in body and skin care treatments. Used as a healing technique for thousands of years by the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, all used essential oils to aid relaxation, improve circulation and help the healing of wounds. Aromatherapy diffusers are utilized to fill the massage room with the scent of the oils. Specific essential oils are blended by the aromatherapist and added to a carrier oil, such as almond oil, to be used in the massage. Each of the oils has its own unique characteristics and benefits. Use of this technique declined as the modern pharmaceutical industry developed. However, the French chemist Gattefosse revived the art by coining the term aromatherapy and by publishing a book on the subject in 1928.
