Have you heard the good news at Elements? If not, you are missing out on our newest upgrade. We have changed our entire aromatherapy process and it is wonderful! Elements has teamed up with the company Shankara and made completely new blends to add into our massage and they smell fantastic! And pack a great deal of healing behind them too.
There are three new Elements custom essential oil blends. First is Energize, a mix of lemon, ginger, and geranium. It is stimulating, invigorating, and uplifting to our senses and has balancing effects. Calm is a mix of lavender, nutmeg and black pepper which will be uplifting, nurturing, relaxing, will relieve muscle pains and calm headaches. Finally, our Refresh is a blend of eucalyptus, peppermint and patchouli and has enlivening, balancing, soothing and cooling effects. These oils are all ethically-sourced and mixed with a carrier oil of grapeseed so it can be directly placed on to the skin.
Research suggests that certain oils can affect psychological, emotional and physiological effects in our body. Through the olfactory system, we reach our emotional brain with these oils bringing back specific memories, and are reaching a variety of receptor sites including the limbic system (which controls our emotions). Essential oils are capable of affecting our autonomic nervous system activity via the dermal absorption through the skin as well as our olfactory response through the nose during inhalation.
The intention with our new Aroma Ritual is to give a simple and effective treatment that will approach many different things going on in your body. Essential oils are loosely based on an ancient principle of using the oils to stimulate pulse points so that it balances the human body.
Just like with our past aromatherapy, you can schedule it in advance or once you arrive in the studio. Your massage will still remain customized for your needs, with the aromatherapy incorporated during the session. Try this upgrade and enjoy! We can’t wait for you to try it out!
