|Our “Aromatherapy Body Wrap” combines the amazing benefits of pure, therapeutic grade essential oils and a sauna effect. This is created by applying essential oils, which are diluted in a carrier oil or lotion, to your skin and then wrapping you in three layers of blankets, including a thermal blanket. This equates to a “cocoon effect”. This wrap creates warmth, which in turn, causes the body to sweat. The sauna effect purifies and detoxes the body while promoting relaxation
Benefits of Sweat
As our pores open, the sweat glands start to excrete. The body rids itself of metabolic and other waste products. Sweat contains almost the same elements as urine. For that reason, the skin is sometimes called the “third kidney”.
We offer our Aromatherapy Full Body Wrap as an added service to massage. The aromatherapy wrap takes approximately 30 minutes combined with a 60-minute massage.
We offer single (one essential oil) such as Frankincense, Myrrh, Lavender and Ylang Ylang. We also offer specialty (proprietary) blends.
ESSENTIAL OILS-AROMATOUCH TECHNIQUE
|The technique was created to combat four systemic constants: stress, toxic insult, inflammation, and autonomic imbalance.
Most individuals encounter factors in daily life, from both their internal and external environment, that have negative effects on their overall health and well being. These negative disturbances cause an imbalance in homeostasis, the natural balance of body systems and health. Homeostasis is simply stated as “balance” of the body.
WHAT IS AN ESSENTIAL OIL?
|When you peeled and orange, did your hand get sticky? This is essential oil. If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their basic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.
But what exactly is a volatile aromatic compound? These compounds are small organic molecules that tend to change quickly from their solid or liquid state to a gas at room temperature. They are called volatile because they change state quickly. When you first open a bottle of essential oil, you instantly notice that the aroma is potent. The physical and chemical properties of the volatile aromatic compounds that compose essential oils allow them to quickly move through the air and directly interact with the olfactory sensors in the nose.
Even with pure essential oils the composition of the oil can vary depending on the time of day, season, geographic location, method and duration of distillation, year grown, and the weather, making every step of the production process a critical determinant of the overall quality of the essential oil product.
Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used as single essential oils or in complex essential oil blends depending on user experience and desired benefit.
