This alternative therapeutic technique combines the natural therapeutic properties of the
essential oils and the healing power of medical grade oxygen and massage therapy.
Aromatherapy, also referred to as Essential Oil therapy, can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It seeks to unify physiological, psychological and spiritual processes to enhance an individual’s innate healing process. Aromatherapy is a natural, non-invasive modality designed to affect the whole person not just the symptom or disease and to assist the body’s natural ability to balance, regulate, heal and maintain itself by the correct use of essential oils.
When you combine essential oils with the many benefits of increased oxygen, the body can better regulate itself, improve the healing process and enjoy deeper relaxation. Oxygen is one of the most well researched and safest therapies known to science.

Energy( Qi ), flows through your body, through channels that both begin and end in your hands and feet.

The power of your mind creates energetic vibrations that manifest in strength and well-being, or weakness and dis-ease. This type of Massage utilizes a combination of Massage Therapy, Cranial-sacral Therapy, Aromatherapy and Intuitive Energy Work to help heal your body.
You can expect all the same physical benefits you would receive from a traditional massage. In addition, by releasing the emotional stressors that are stored in the soft tissue and cell memory of your body, you are increasing your energy flow, allowing your body to function at its optimal level.
