The Essence of Spa Therapy…
A facility dedicated to soothing the senses and rejuvenating the body and mind. It is a concept that is a world away from the old-fashioned notion of a place “for the administration internally or externally of fresh natural waters at or near their source.” While hydrotherapy is still a very important part of what is expected of a typical spa, it is likely to be combined with massage often with essential oils, and will usually be designed to both relax and stimulate the entire body.
The inextricable relationship between the products used in spa treatments and the therapies themselves, is important in establishing a signature conceptual approach that will distinguish an establishment from its competitors, and therefore build a loyal clientele. Placing oneself literally in the hands of others, however professional they may be, is a very personal decision and one that is influenced by all the senses.
Of the five senses it is smell which triggers the most vivid memory recall, often bringing with these memories strong emotions. This phenomenon results from the stimulation of the body’s nasal scent receptors in the brain’s limbic system, the area responsible for the storage of strong emotions. If, as often is the case, the recalled emotions are positive, this will have an amazingly therapeutic and relaxing effect.
It’s clear that essential oils and the aromas associated with them work in a variety of ways. Their contribution to the holistic concept of spa treatment in helping to bring balance and harmony to the body and mind is significant, and their influence is often all pervasive. This is a science that requires in–depth understanding in order to harvest the full rewards of the oils’ myriad of benefits.
