Elements Massage is proud to have partnered with Shankara, a creator of natural, sustainable skincare, beauty and other wellness products to develop AromaRitual, an all-new aromatherapy massage experience. With three exclusive essential oils and innovative methods of applying them to our clients, we’re beyond excited to begin offering this modality.
What is AromaRitual™?
AromaRitual™ is a brand new technique offered by Elements of Morris Plains. It involves aromatherapy and massage, but to be clear: it’s not just a rebranding of our past aromatherapy massage services. It involves completely new techniques and oils for a truly differentiated massage.
What Happens during an AromaRitual™ Session?
After selecting one of three brand new, custom-created essences, your licensed massage therapist will encourage you to gently inhale the scent for a short period of time. They’ll tailor the strength of the scent to your preference to ensure it’s not too strong or too weak.
Then, they’ll apply a small amount of it to your skin during the massage itself, by using different strokes. While some pure essential oils are too strong and may irritate the skin, each AromaRitual™ blend contains grapeseed, which acts as a carrier oil that protects your skin from irritation.
Once the massage has finished, you’ll be given a personal sachet scented with the AromaRitual™ oil that was used during your session. Smelling it may trigger memories of the massage, promoting profound relaxation.
Elements Massage Partners with Shankara
These oils come courtesy of Shankara, an ethical, sustainable skincare company who donates 100 percent of their net profits to humanitarian causes. Shankara’s philosophy combines ancient Ayuverdic wisdom and modern Western wellness practices to produce a brilliant line of products, including three custom-blended essential oils made exclusively for Elements Massage:
