How is aromatherapy incorporated into the treatment?
Your treatment begins with an assessment to determine the focus for your customized blend of oils. This may include goals of: stress reduction, ligament/muscle repair, scar tissue reduction, tension relieving, etc.
Once a goal is in mind, a bend will be created on the spot to suite your particular needs.
Application of your own unique blend will depend on each individual situation. For example, a blend for stress reduction or muscle tension will be applied through the use of Registered Massage Therapy. A blend that is designed to help repair particular damage at a localized spot will be applied through the use of a compress, while other remaining areas receive Registered Massage Therapy.
I seem to react negatively to perfumes. Will aromatherapy be a problem?
Unlike perfumes and aromatics, the essential oils that I use for treatment purposes do not contain any proteins. They are pure essential oils. What this means? There are no allergy-producing components.
That being said, if you are extremely sensitive to smells in particular, I recommend that you have a 'test patch' or 'test smell' prior to your appointment just to ensure that the treatment itself will not be overwhelming to your system.
