Updated on November 8, 2006

Aromatherapy vs. massage therapy

Don't be confuse about aromatherapy with massage therapy , these terms are not interchangeble, they go together. With essential oils used by massage therapist this is when the aroma .( scents being extracted from herbs , plants and trees) is mixed with oil , being used for body massage. In spas and massage parlors , the client is offered to choose what scent the massage therapist will apply to her body during the treatment. Herbal oils are lavender, rosemary and marjoram. Ylang-Ylang and eucalyptus come from trees. Camomile is also used to massage the hands when they are tired. Certain oils like juniper, lavender and rosemary are used for muscles and mild aches while geranium, lavender and marjoram is to relax the body in general. While some therapist used the name massage therapy in their practice it is always done with the aid of oil as the skin is sensitive for being touched and imagine the pain when there is no oil to tone the muscles.On the other hand aroma therapist use this name but there is no difference between the two at all. Oils aid in the massage treatment for its soothing effect on the skin. Aromassage therapy is quite significant in relating to this body treatment . Why? There's only one person involved during the process.
