Traditional Thai Oil Massage

A Relaxing Aromatherapy Body Massage

An Oil massage treatment is often referred to as an Aromatherapy massage. This is a Swedish massage therapy that uses oils or lotions containing essential oils (highly concentrated plant oils). It is a combination of Thai Oil Massage and deep tissue techniques resulting in a massage that focuses on easing tight muscles whilst soothing both body and mind.

During your massage therapy​, you inhale these essential oil molecules or absorb them through your skin. They are meant to promote beneficial changes in your mind and body by manipulating the limbic system, a section of the brain linked to emotion.

What to Expect from our Signature Oil Massage

  • Our therapists will use their hands to stimulate the tissue with hands sliding over the body with no friction
  • This will help to rejuvenate the body and promote health & relaxation
  • Most therapists have several premixed blends of oils and will choose the blend based on your health status
  • Your therapist may involve you in the oil selection process by inviting you to smell different blends and choose a preferred aroma
  • Certain therapists like to add natural essential oils to massage oil immediately prior to each massage based on your health goals and condition
  • When you are finished, your therapist may recommend a blend that you can use yourself in between massage treatments
