The practice of aromatherapy encourages relaxation and relieves stress, and may also promote health in other ways, such as boosting your immune, respiratory and circulatory systems.
The essential oils used in aromatherapy have been in use for thousands of years, and aromatherapy itself developed into a more formal practice about 100 years ago. When used for this purpose, the essential oils can either be simply inhaled, or inhaled while being applied directly to the skin.
When used on the skin, they are often combined with other natural ingredients such as vegetable oils, herbs, sea salts, or clay. While not a replacement for traditional Western medicine, aromatherapy can be a wonderful complementary health treatment.
Aromatherapy works by activating areas in your nose called smell receptors, which send messages through your nervous system to your brain. This may activate certain areas of your brain to affect your emotions and sense of well-being.
You can maximize your treatment’s benefits by being honest and open about what you hope to achieve from the session, breathing deeply during the session, and taking time afterward to relax and slowly ease back into your day. Here at Salon d’Artiste, we offer a range of aromatherapy-based services.
From our Aromatherapy Deep Pore Cleansing Facial, our Aromatherapy Body Massage, or our Aromatherapy Body Wrap and Thermal Wrap treatments, you’ll find relief and a sense of wellbeing that will linger far beyond your appointment time.
