At A Good Spa Day, everything from our skin care to our massage services are specifically designed to optimize your relaxation needs.

We enhance your comfort during our massage therapy services through aromatherapy. Aromatherapy wields the healing powers of essential oils extracted from flowers, herbs, roots and other natural sources to create a healthy balance within the body. Here is a list of just a few of the many health benefits you can receive:

Stress Reduction

Several scents — like lavender, bergamot and jasmine — reduce stress. The benefit, isn’t just for those who are healthy, but also for people with terminal conditions who may suffer from physical ailments caused by overbearing levels of stress. Aromatherapy has a proven success rate in reducing stress levels in people suffering from cancer and other chronic conditions.

Pain Management

Pain management is another ailment frequently treated with aromatherapy. An essential oil like clary sage- known for pain reduction attributes, is particularly popular for relieving menstrual cramps in women. Though some attribute this success to a placebo effect, we know the most important result is how you feel. Aromatherapy helps users feel better and we think that’s all that matters.

Blood Pressure Benefits

Patients with hypertension (high blood pressure) also see results from aromatherapy. Because blood pressure is directly correlated with stress, aromatherapy would be beneficial in its reduction.

Combats Depression

For those fighting depression or anxiety, aromatherapy is key. Oils like citrus and other vibrant smells have uplifting attributes. When a few drops of these essential oils are combined with a soothing massage, they can work wonders in combatting depression.
