Essential oils pass through the skin since they are fat-soluble molecules and the skin contains cells, which are lipid (fat) rich membranes. Massage and heat increase the rate of absorption into the skin and the blood stream and it is suggested that some oils are metabolised within the skin. The rate of absorption can be as soon as one hour following the massage.

Clinical Aromatherapy Massage combines the therapeutic effects of essential oils with massage therapy. A blend of essential oils is created to suit each individual’s requirements. The blend is then applied by classical massage techniques, which are adapted to provide the individual with a unique massage experience.

Skill and knowledge are obviously required in order to select and blend the appropriate oils, with regard to their chemical properties and safety features, as well as the practitioner’s familiarity with the bodies systems and functions to perform effective massage techniques.

Clinical aromatherapy massage is a holistic method of treating the individual. Rather than treat only the symptoms of the illness or disease, the holistic approach looks at treating the whole person. (Although in the case of specific problems such as a fungal infection in the toenails a local application can be applied consisting of one or two blended oils over a short intensive period.)
