Aromatherapy

Body Balance Massage and Float is proud to offer aromatherapy treatments for our northern Utah clients.

To provide maximum benefit and help you get the most from your treatment, we offer aromatherapy as an add-on any for our massage services,

What Is Aromatherapy?

In the strictest sense of the term, aromatherapy refers to the effects that different scents or smells can have on the body. Traditionally, this stimulation is created by using essential oils that are derived from herbs, flowers, trees, etc.

At Body Balance, we recognize the power and influence that scents have on our mood and physical well-being. But we also understand the many benefits that essential oils can have when applied directly to the body and massaged into the tissues.

When you schedule an aromatherapy massage with us, the therapist will incorporate your chosen essential oils during the massage along with massage lotion or oil. This way, you will enjoy both the olfactory and the direct physical benefits.

What Are the Benefits of Aromatherapy Massage?

Some types of olfactory stimulation trigger feelings of relaxation, peace and calmness, while others can improve mood or energize both body and mind. Some scents improve concentration, bring on gentle sleep or help relieve nausea.

Essential oils, when massaged into the body, can elicit the same response but on a deeper, more profound level. An aromatherapy massage can reduce pain and inflammation, expedite healing, soothe the muscles and improve circulation.

To get the results you seek, simply select an essential oil blend that addresses your areas of focus or concern.

 

What Essential Oils Are Available?

You can choose from several of our proprietary blends. These are our own unique creations that you won’t find anywhere else – and you won’t believe what a difference they can make in your results.

  • Stress Blend: Calms the mind, eases anxiety and takes you to a state of peace and relaxation. Take a deep breath and feel the worries fade away.
  • Inflammation Blend: This blend combines some of the most powerful essential oils to target inflammation in the body tissues. This helps decrease joint and muscle pain and prevent chronic disease.
  • Headache Blend: Our headache blend goes straight to the factors that cause this type of pain. It increases circulation, eases muscle tension and reduces inflammation. You won’t believe what a difference it can make when you experience headaches.
  • Thai Blend: A perennial favorite at Body Balance, our Thai Blend is a delightful combination of oils that warm and soothe the body. This blend has an exotic aroma and is great for improving circulation of the blood, relaxing and soothing muscles, and easing inflammation.

Finally, don’t forget to ask about our herb infused oil treatment: This treatment infuses a combination of two herbal blends into an olive oil base. Containing cayenne, this treatment creates a warm sensation that stimulates blood flow and facilitates healing.
