Bottles Of Essential Oil Blends Used For Aromatherapy Massage

Last updated: 2 November 2023

In this article, we’ll explore the contrasts between the aromatic world of aromatherapy massage and the various other massage styles available at Kiyora Spa.  Let’s delve into these differences and find the perfect spa and massage experience for you.

Aromatherapy Massage stands out because it uses essential oils for added relaxation and well-being. In contrast, other massages like traditional Thai, Swedish, deep tissue, or hot stone massage mainly rely on techniques for therapeutic benefits through physical manipulation.

As you dive into the world of massages in Chiang Mai, you’ll discover various styles, each with its own unique touch. Aromatherapy Massage is like a fragrant journey, using oil blends for relaxation and overall wellbeing. So, let’s explore what makes aromatherapy massage different from the rest, so you will be well-informed before choosing your ideal massage treatment.

Aromatherapy Massage vs the Rest

Traditional Thai Massage vs Aromatherapy Massage

Thai-Yoga Massage vs Aromatherapy Massage

  • Positioning: Aromatherapy massage is often performed with the recipient lying on a massage table, whereas Thai-Yoga Massage involves a sequence of assisted stretches and yoga-like poses performed traditionally on a floor mat.  Thai-Yoga Massage at Kiyora Spa is performed on a regular massage table.
  • Oils: Essential oils are central to aromatherapy massage, while Thai-Yoga Massage generally does not use oils.

Deep Tissue Massage vs Aromatherapy Massage

  • Pressure: Aromatherapy massage uses lighter to moderate pressure, focusing on relaxation and aromatherapy benefits. Deep Tissue Massage, on the other hand, involves firm, deep pressure to target specific muscle knots and tension.
  • Oils: Essential oils are a hallmark of aromatherapy massage, while Deep Tissue Massage typically uses massage oils without aromatic properties.  However, at Kiyora Spa, we offer the same oil blends used for Aromatherapy Massage for added benefits.

Herbal Compress Massage vs Aromatherapy Massage

  • Aromas: Aromatherapy massage relies on the aromatic scents of essential oils. In contrast, Herbal Compress Massage incorporates the soothing scents of herbal compresses along with direct heat and herbal infusion.
  • Therapeutic Focus: Aromatherapy massage primarily aims at relaxation and stress relief, whereas Herbal Compress Massage combines heat, herbs, and massage techniques for both relaxation and localized relief of muscle tension.

Swedish Massage vs Aromatherapy Massage

  • Strokes: Both styles include gentle strokes and effleurage, but Swedish Massage is more comprehensive, encompassing various strokes like kneading and tapping.
  • Pressure: Aromatherapy massage typically uses lighter pressure, while Swedish Massage can be adjusted from light to firm, making it versatile for different preferences.

Hot Aromatherapy Oil Massage vs Aromatherapy Massage

  • Oils: Both involve the use of massage oils, but Aromatherapy Massage focuses on scented essential oils for their therapeutic properties, whereas Hot Aromatherapy Oil Massage primarily uses heated oils.
  • Temperature: Hot Aromatherapy Oil Massage incorporates warm oil to relax muscles, while Aromatherapy Massage relies on the aromatic properties of essential oils for relaxation.
