Want to relax both mind and body? Melt your stress away with an aromatherapy wrap.
Kathe Malinowski, lead esthetician and marketing manager for Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center, said the essential oils used during the treatment can help induce a feeling of calm.
“Aromatherapy wraps are relaxing, like a massage,” she said. “We ask the client how are they feeling. If they feel they need to relax we use lavender or tranquility, which is a blend of oils to relax the mind. If they feel like they are achy or have a headache we use peppermint oil.”
During the spa treatment, the body is first dry brushed to open up the pores. Next, aromatherapy oils are massaged into the skin. Clients are then wrapped in plastic and a solar blanket which warms up the body and allows the oils to penetrate better, Malinowski said, and treated to a de-stressing neck and scalp massage.
The procedure, which lasts about 45 minutes, results in calming muscle tension and a sense of relaxation.
“When clients are unwrapped we tell them to let the oils continue to work throughout the day, Malinowski said.
How often can the aromatherapy wraps be done?
“Most people come in every couple of months or every month,” Malinowski said.
