Aromatherapy is a natural treatment that uses pure essential oils to bring the body and mind into harmony. Essential oils are the life force of the plant and are extracted from aromatic flowers, plants and trees.
Essential oils were first used 3,500 BC in ancient Egypt, because of their healing and health properties. They were soon used to treat ailments also in Greece and India. They are now used throughout the world and most of the drugs used today are based on the phytochemicals within plants.
Essential oils contain phytochemicals and each plant has a unique character, fragrance and healing property. They have many different qualities; some can have antiviral or antifungal properties whilst others may have calming and soothing effects on the nervous system. They can promote stress relief, relaxation, strengthen the immune system, maintain emotional and hormonal balance, detoxify and much more. Because of this they have a profound effect on health and well-being.
Micheline Arcier, a pioneer in Aromatherapy, created this signature aromatherapy massage technique and her methods have become the basis for many aromatherapy massage treatments and facials that are used today. A blend of the purest, organic essential oils is created to suit your individual needs. They will be added to a suitable carry oil and will be used during the relaxing back and neck massage.
