Catherine Dyck first introduced essential oils and aromatherapy to MassageWorks. We have had the experience of seeing our clients recover more quickly from headaches and bruising as a result of using these products.
Now we use essential oils as a part of almost all of our treatments. The oils are placed directly on the skin at the site of the problem. The oils absorb into the skin and the muscle tissue providing benefits to that area. The oils are not used in the traditional way that aromatherapy is used. They aren’t inhaled through diffusers. They are placed on the problem area where they can be absorbed and do the most good. This is the same principle as using a topical cream on sore muscles. We use the essential oils and not topical creams because the oils are 100% natural. There are no chemicals or added scents to them.
During our treatments we typically use two essential oil blends. RTM, which helps muscles relax and decreases swelling, and Aqua Flow, that helps detoxify the area. There is no additional charge for the use of the oils. They are included with our massages because we believe it works and our goal is to provide our clients with the best possible care.
