Aromatherapy Add-on Service

Add another layer of luxury to your healing…

Whether essential oils are mixed into your massage lotion or diffused into the air, choosing to add essential oils to your session is beneficial to your overall wellness. Essential oils are chosen based on your personal preference or healing need.  While the FDA prohibits aromatherapists from making claims about the healing properties of essential oils, it is important to note that some oils are not beneficial for all people.  It is extremely important to work with your therapist to choose the oil that is right for you.

Standard options including a few of the conditions or issues essential oils may help with are listed.  Seasonal and special options may be available.
