This workshop is open to licensed massage therapists as well as licensed estheticians. Participants will learn how to incorporate the use of essential oils into a 60 or 90 minute treatment session that drains, detoxifies, and relaxes the body and can easily be incorporated into your existing practice as a unique service option. This complete body massage treatment is an eclectic blend of modalities that includes dry brushing, hot towel applications, manual lymphatic drainage techniques, along with classic strokes and the use of therapeutic medicinal essential oil aromatherapy.
This class will give you an understanding of skin anatomy and how the products that you choose will have an impact not only on the skin but the whole person. We will discuss how this treatment benefits the skin and body through the use of aromatherapy, exfoliation, detoxification, hydration, and the lymphatic system. This is a wonderful session to add to your menu and especially beneficial for clients who cannot have deep work and/or like light pressure, as well as the benefit of improving lymphatic flow, enhancing the immune system, and helping to reduce fluid build up in the tissues. You will come away with a beautifully choreographed routine that clients love and is deeply relaxing.
