1. What is an aromatherapy massage?
An aromatherapy massage uses essential oils to enhance the benefits of a traditional massage. Before the treatment begins, a therapist will create the ideal blend of oils for your unique needs. If your goal is relaxation, for example, they may use lavender.
Once the oils are blended, the therapist will leave the room so you can undress and get comfortable on the massage table. They will apply the oil in long, smooth strokes to warm your tissue.
Then, they’ll continue with deeper, more intense strokes to focus on specific muscles or tight areas. The massage will likely begin with the legs and back, transition to the face-up position, and end with the feet.
2. What are the benefits of an aromatherapy massage
Eases Stress and Anxiety
The combination of aromatherapy and massage can relax your senses and reduce any stress or anxiety you may be feeling. It releases endorphins, which are the “feel good chemicals” in your body that offer natural pain relief and stress reduction.
Chronic headaches can negatively affect your mind, body, and spirit. Massage therapy paired with oils such as peppermint or ylang ylang can relieve any migraines or headaches you may have.
Aromatherapy massage has the power to increase blood flow to your muscles and vital organs. This can ensure that blood and oxygen flow through your body continuously and allow every organ to function properly. It can keep your brain sharp, heart healthy, and complexion beautiful.
Reduces Pain and Inflammation
Essential oils and massage can reduce any pain or inflammation in your joints and muscles. Aromatherapy massage will stimulate your tissues and increase your circulation, soothing your aching muscles. Peppermint is the best for these issues because it’s cooling and invigorating.
By adding the calming properties of essential oils like chamomile and lavender to a massage, you’ll feel an enhanced sense of relaxation. This can be particularly beneficial when you’re coping with a stressful time.
3. Is an aromatherapy massage suitable for you?
If you’re feeling stressed or anxious or simply need to recharge after a long week, you can’t go wrong with an aromatherapy massage. It’s also a great option if you’re experiencing pain or desire a more relaxing massage experience. If you’re pregnant or living with allergies, asthma, or a skin condition like eczema or psoriasis, consult your doctor before you get an aromatherapy massage.

What are the risks of an aromatherapy massage?
Just like every other massage aromatherapy massage comes with some risks that depend on your health history and the oils used. These may include itching, swelling, redness, hives, and rash.
How does aromatherapy work?
Aromatherapy allows molecules to ensure your nose or mouth and make their way to your lungs and other parts of your body. As they reach your brain, they affect your limbic system, which is associated with your heart rate, blood pressure, emotions, and hormonal balance.
What are the most common oils used?
There are more than 3,000 types of essential oils with their own unique beneficial properties. Some of the most popular oils our therapist use during aromatherapy massages include:
- Lavender: Eases stress and skin irritation.
- Peppermint: Relieves nausea and sore muscles.
- Chamomile: Improves mood and sleep.
- Tea Tree: Supports immunity.
- Bergamot: Promotes healthy skin and stress levels.

How do I know if a certain oil is right for me?
You can ask a massage therapist to diffuse an oil instead of applying it to your skin directly. Another option is to do a skin patch test at home.
