Essential Oil Therapy

Essential Oil therapy incorporates therapeutic grade essential oils derived
from various herbs and plants and light pressure massage techniques.

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years in many parts of the
world as natural healing aids.  Each oil has unique properties benefiting the
body in different ways.  Some oils are anti-microbial, with the ability to fight
various bacteria, viruses and fungi.  Some contain substances that promote
relaxation and rejuvenation and still others are stimulating.

One commonly know essential oil is Tea Tree Oil.  Tea Tree oil can be used
to treat fungal infections, insect bites and cold sores.  Lavender oil is also
well known and commonly used.  It is frequently added to massage lotion or
oil to capitalize on its inherent ability to promote relaxation.

Some oils can be taken internally, but most should be reserved only for
topical application.  While there are oils that can be applied in an undiluted
form, many are considered “hot”, so are diluted with an neutral oil such as
grape seed oil before application to the body.

As with many massage techniques, there are some specific conditions
which contraindicate the use of certain essential oils.  Your therapist will
conduct a pre-session interview with you to determine which oils are
appropriate for your situation.
