Some of the health benefits of aromatherapy include its capacity to reduce anxiety, ease depression, improve energy levels, accelerate the healing process, eliminate headaches, boost emotional and intellectual performance, aid sleep, enhance the immune system, reduce pain, improve digestion, and increase circulation. An aromatherapy massage is, of course wonderfully relaxing too.


BENEFITS OF Deep Tissue aromatherapy massage

Deep tissue is a type of massage therapy that is used to treat chronic tension and injuries from overuse. It is similar a classic (Swedish) massage but the pace tends to be slower and pressure is applied more strongly, concentrated on problem areas. Therapists may use their forearms, elbows, fingertips and knuckles as well as their hands in order to break-up adhesions. These bands of rigid tissue can cause pain and inflammation, and restrict movement and circulation in muscle tissue. You might have a stiff neck and upper back, lower back pain, tight legs or sore shoulders. Deep tissue massage works to realign the different layers of tissue, treating the tendons, ligaments and fascia (the protective layer of tissues which surrounds the bones, joints and muscles) as well as the muscles to release tension and provide pain relief.

At certain points in the treatment most people do experience some discomfort. That’s to be expected when the pressure is deep and direct on painful or injured areas. Scar tissue is being loosed and muscles lengthened, knots are being undone and sub-layers of muscle moved back into the right place. Taking a deep breath when especially tense areas are tackled can be helpful. It’s important to tell your massage therapist which areas are painful and if the soreness becomes too much. They can easily dial it down a bit or use some more oil to help the muscles relax. There’s benefit in having multiple treatments and giving your body a chance to adjust.


BENEFITS OF Hot stone aromatherapy Massage

Hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that involves the use of smooth, heated basalt stones. The massage therapist places the hot stones on specific points on your body and may also hold the stones while giving the massage. The heat and weight of the stones wars and relaxes the muscles, allowing the massage therapist to apply deeper pressure to those areas without causing discomfort.

At E17 Aromatherapy, the stones are heated in a professional stone heater until they are within a precise temperature range, typically between 50 - 70 degrees Centigrade

Swedish massage therapy techniques are used during the massage, which may include long strokes and kneading and rolling. It also enables the therapist to massage deeper without excessive pain. Some of the benefits are that it helps relieve muscle tension and pain, reduces stress and anxiety and helps to promote sleep. Hot stone massage may also help relieve symptoms of autoimmune diseases, help decrease cancer symptoms and may help boost immunity.
