Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to provide a therapeutic effect through the use of massage combined with the Olfactory system, (the sense of smell), nerves in the Olfactory system carry impulses to the brain that we interpret as smell, these trigger neuro-chemicals that may be sedative, relaxing, stimulating or euphoric in effect.
Sanity will begin with your consultation by tailoring a blend for your treatment aims, at Sanity there are over 20 different essential oils and more joining the collection every month, your Aromatherapy treatment at Sanity will be tailored specifically for your treatment aims, generic pre-blends are not used at Sanity. Once your chosen blend is ready you will start the massage laying on your front working the back, legs and arms after which you will then turn onto your back focusing again on lymph drainage and encouragement for the body to absorb the benefits contained within your unique blend. The abdomen is also included (only for female clients) moving upwards to the neck and shoulders. While working the neck and shoulders you will be encouraged to take deep breaths drawing in the smell of the blend to stimulated the neuro-chemical triggers. Massage technique during an Aromatherapy massage is noticeably lighter, the strokes involved are to encourage the lymph nodes to gently dilate and contract this process draws in the compounds within essential oils to the body and work towards your treatment aims.
