Aromatherapy has been around since ancient times, when scented oils were used for religious and medical purposes. Now, scent is finding new uses in the health and wellness industry, where it can be used to enhance relaxation, to boost one's mood, and to improve sleep.
Not surprising, when you consider that scent elicits a powerful emotional pull—think how the smell of fresh-baked bread can instantly take you back to your grandma's kitchen. Research has proven that the sense of smell is 10,000 times stronger than other senses because it instantaneously links directly to the brain.*
Massage Heights has been using the power of scent in its Retreats by offering Elevations (scented oil combinations) during massages and facials and in its Heights at Home line of proprietary products.
For Massage Heights Members and Guests looking to relax, there is a blend of lavender, sweet orange, and ylang-ylang. Those looking to feel more energetic could choose an herbal combination of rosemary, sage, and basil. These scents and many more both enhance the experience and allow Massage Heights Franchise Owners to offer something unique and personal that helps Elevate the Everyday TM for its Guests.
