Hot Towel Aromatherapy Infusion
A spa treatment combining aromatherapy, moist heat and massage, hot towel aromatherapy infusion adds a luxurious touch to your massage that will transport you to the next level of muscle relaxation and soul renewal. In this treatment, towels that have been moistened, infused with essential oil blends, and then heated are applied with manual compression to each area of your body after it has been massaged. This moist heat increases circulation, facilitating the delivery of fresh blood cells and the clearing away of toxins. The essential oils have various healthful properties and may be selected for their desired effects. This combination is highly effective in alleviating pain associated with muscle strain and spasms, joint stiffness, and arthritis. Hot towel aromatherapy infusion enhances all of the therapeutic effects of massage.
Fee for hot towel aromatherapy infusion is $15 added to the cost of your massage. Please mention it when you book the appointment, and I will ask for your preference of aromatherapy blend, as it will need to be prepared ahead of time.
