Aromatherapy massage is a massage therapy that uses essential oils to alter your mood along with your cognitive, psychological or physical well-being. When you inhale essential oil molecules, messages are transmitted to the limbic system and affect your heart rate, stress levels, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion and immune system. Essential oils are also believed to be absorbed through the skin. Each essential oil has a different healing purpose. For a real aromatherapy massage experience, we suggest you visit the Seasons Spa at Conrad Hotel, Bangkok.
As mentioned, aromatherapy is a kind of massage performed with an essential oil which has direct contact with your skin, so it is important that products are carefully selected. Seasons Spa provides guests with high-end and trusted products from Aromatherapy Associates London. “We use the award-winning luxury brand ‘Aromatherapy Associates’ from the UK because it is the purest product with natural ingredients from organic farms, and essential oils which are highly effective for clients’ physical, mental and emotional well-being through the specialized movement and journey. This brand is at the forefront of the aromatherapy industry and is widely used in the most exclusive spas,” said Nuananong Erbprasartsook, Marketing Communications Executive.
Your treatment starts with an individualized service consultation, where you tell a therapist all your problems and how you want to feel after the treatment. We recommend a 90 minute massage instead of 60 minutes; you can fully rest yourself this way.
Instead of just gently massaging and rubbing oil on your body like many spas tend to do, the therapist at Seasons Spa presses her palms and each finger firmly on your muscles. “It doesn’t feel like a typical aroma massage, she does push on pressure points as she massages on my body and it feels very relaxing. It really does help with tired and sore muscles,” Namwan, our PR, commended.
Massage techniques and treatment concepts at Seasons Spa are a combination of Eastern and Western wisdom; Chakras therapy from Ayurvedic medicine, pressure points and the meridian energy line from Chinese Medicine, and drainage and stroking movements from the Swedish and Western styles.
“I have a pain in my shoulder from carrying a heavy bag and the therapist presses her fingers and sort of pushes and rubs on my shoulder. It hurts for a second and then it feels painless after. It’s very helpful,” Namwan added further.
After the treatment, instead of rushing off you can take a moment to sit in the guest lounge and have some delicious cookies and tea. The staff are welcoming and always happy to help you out and will definitely make you feel special. As for the purposes of this treatment, it should heal you physically and emotionally, and it does
