What is it and what should I expect?
This is a much gentler massage than other forms of massage and uses various essential oils (concentrated plant oils) to promote both physiological and psychological benefits. After the short consultation, one or more essential oils are selected based on what you need and are mixed in with the massage oil or lotion. The subtle aroma of the essential oils will be around you during the massage.
After the massage, the massage therapist may suggest a blend that you can use at home in between massage treatments.
