Aromatherapy is a holistic massage treatment which works on the mind, body and spirit. It is one of the most natural and effective ways of getting rid of stress. The main purpose of aromatherapy is to alleviate stress and release tension from the body 's soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments ) to promote a feeling of well-being. It is also a very effective way of stimulating the circulatory and lymphatic system to eliminate excess fluids. With aromatherapy the benefits of a regular massage are greatly enhanced by the use of essential oils (purest essence from fruits, plants and flowers) which are well known to have powerful therapeutic properties and work at both the physical as well as the psychological level.
