This deep relaxing massage with essential oils, in addition to working on the muscular, nervous, and lymphatic systems and toning the physical body, also has an impact on the mind and emotions, increasing self-esteem and well-being.

The sense of smell is stimulated with floral and herbal aromas.

Approximately 15% of the air we inhale is directed to the roof of the nose, where olfactory epithelium transports odors to the limbic system: the central area of the brain composed of the thalamus, hypothalamus, hippocampus, and central amygdala. The amygdala is responsible for associating aromas with emotions, and the hippocampus links memories. Aromas relax the brain, thereby alleviating symptoms of anxiety, depression, and chronic insomnia. They also help improve cognitive functions such as concentration, memory, and learning, among many other benefits.
