What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the art and science of using naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants, known as essential oils. These have a range of therapeutic benefits, and are used to balance, harmonise and alter a person's mind, mood or physical health. As a holistic medicine, Aromatherapy can both prevent and treat illness and disease. The benefits of essential plant oils are received through topical application, environmental diffusion, or direct inhalation. Aromatherapy is practiced in many work places, including day spas, health retreats, and public and private health care facilities.

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is an ancient technique used to promote health and relaxation, and is now commonly used within many salon environments. Using a variety of kneading movements, long and smooth strokes, applied pressure, reflexology and rhythmic techniques, massage is a proven method for targeting sore, strained or pulled muscles, tendons, joints, lymphatic nodes and other body parts. Massage therapy has a wide variety of health benefits, and can improve circulation, reduce stress and anxiety levels, ease sore muscles, and can assist in recovery from injury.
