Introductory aromatherapy special for the month
Aromatherapy can be used to further enhance the benefits of massage by promoting the calming of the mind to aid in relaxation, reduce anxiety, nervous stress and depression. It can also increase the overall state of well-being and vitality during a massage. Scents can have many positive psychological effects- think about when the orange blossoms are in full bloom in the spring in Arizona. Many people can relate to the feeling you get when you experience the scent, as a warm and comforting feeling comes over you as well as a general feeling of well-being. ow about the fresh smell in the ionization of the air after a lightning storm? Smells can instantly teleport you to an earlier time and a pleasant memory. The reason for these types of associations is that the brain's olfactory bulb, which starts in the nose and runs along the bottom of the brain, is connected to both the amygdala (which is an emotion center and has sometimes been classified as a part of the basal ganglia) and to the hippocampus (which is involved in memory).
Your sense of smell runs through a portion of your brain that visual, auditory (sound), and tactile (touch) senses do not and may be why aromas trigger emotions and memories so well. The scent you choose will build a relation to a great massage experience and will be triggered the next time you smell that aroma.
Elements has chosen to begin with four essential oils from Bon Vital:
Elements will add the essential oil of your choice to the lotion that is used in your massage.
