As specialized as endermologie® treatments are, many spas and salons are combining the power and popularity of aromatherapy with their endermologie services. Using essential oils as part of your treatments can upgrade and enhance almost any service you currently offer.
Many essential oils derived from plants, herbs, flowers and roots have beneficial therapeutic qualities. Nothing enhances an endermologie experience like a treatment room that smells heavenly. Choosing the right, subtle scents can induce relaxation and fond memories.
DISCUSS FRAGRANCES WITH CLIENTS
Always ask each client if she or he would like essential oils to be used during a treatment session and let them smell the oils you have on hand. Because so many essential oils provide benefits that are complementary to endermologie treatments, learning a little about each scent and its use in aromatherapy will provide clients with a variety of choices. Here are a few examples of the effects some essential oils have on the mind and body.
Muscle tension relief: Chamomile, clary sage, eucalyptus, peppermint, ylang ylang.
Calming: Basil, clary sage, ginger, lavender, lemon, sweet marjoram
Immune system boost: Frankincense, cypress, sweet marjoram, spruce, tea tree
Anti-inflammatory: Basil, German chamomile, sweet fennel, peppermint, geranium
Because not every client will be receptive to every scent, talking about options before beginning the endermologie treatment will add to each client’s relaxation and overall experience.
DIFFUSERS AND NEBULIZERS
Both natural and artificial aroma oils can be used through a variety of aromatherapy diffusers to set the mood in your treatment room(s). There are several devices which can be used as aroma diffusers, but in a closed treatment room, it may be necessary to dilute the oils and limit the length of time the diffuser is operating so the scents don’t become overpowering.
If you’d rather not use a diffuser, candle or nebulizer, creating or purchasing sprays are a great way to freshen treatment rooms quickly and easily. They can be sprayed at the beginning of a session to relax or calm a client or at the end to refresh them before they leave.
MULTIPLE BENEFITS OF AROMATHERAPY
Even if people are already raving about your spa and endermologie treatments, adding the option of aromatherapy is like the icing on the cake. As soon as you start working with different essential oils, you’ll be able to provide clients with a way to relax even before the treatment starts by stimulating happy memories or feelings of contentment.
Endermologie treatments alone provide clients with feelings of deep relaxation and increased energy. Adding aromatherapy to such beneficial procedures is a sure way to set yourself apart from competing spas!
