Treatments at L'aromaTherapy

Hot Stone Massage - 

Hot stone massage is a luxurious treatment which melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Each hot stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the movement of smooth, water-heated Basalt stones at key points on the body.

The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to their deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

Swedish Massage -

The Swedish massage uses a medium of luxurious oil and includes long strokes or effleurage, kneading, friction, vibrations and stimulating movements using the hands, palms, thumbs and fingertips. Movements are generally applied in the direction of the heart and the main purpose is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. By increasing blood flow the muscles are warmed and relaxed and the recovery time from muscular strain is shortened by the flushing out of lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic wastes from tissues in the body.

There is also a reduction in both emotional and physical stress - Swedish massage is both relaxing and invigorating, affecting the nerves, muscles, glands and circulation, while promoting health and well-being.
