Before your treatment begins, I will chat to you about your goals for the session and how I can use aromatherapy to maximize the effects of your massage. Mixing a blend of oils unique to you and your treatment, we will then prepare for your massage.
Why choose Aromatherapy Massage?
Aromatherapy Massage Precautions:
If you’re a highly sensitive person, you may want to avoid skin contact with essential oils (and possible even avoid inhaling them). If you have an aversion to heavy smells and perfumes, please make sure you tell me, and I will only use a small amount of essential oils during your massage.
As with all types of massage, be sure to avoid treatment if you have deep-vein thrombosis (blood clots). Talk with your doctor to see if aromatherapy massage is right for you, especially if you have a history of allergies.
If you’re pregnant, essential oils and massage can offer much-needed relief. However, be sure to get your physician’s approval. When selecting a therapist, it may be most helpful to choose a massage therapist with specific training for working on pregnant women.
Whatever your condition, and whatever essential oils we choose to use, always consult your doctor before embarking on a new treatment plan. Also, be sure to only acquire essential oils from approved sources and don’t attempt to mix and use oils unless you have been trained as a professional aromatherapist.
