|Aromatherapy massage is an oil massage but with highly concentrated plant oils, called essential oils, added to the massage oil or lotion.
How does aromatherapy massage work?
The nostrils are attached to a part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones. When you inhale essential oil molecules, messages are transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion, and the immune system. Essential oils are also believed to be absorbed through the skin.
Each essential oil has different healing properties. For example, some calm while others energize. Only the best aromatherapy oils are used. Here are the varieties of aromatherapy oils used at Sabai Thai Spa their properties:

After consultation, one or more essential oils are selected based on what you need and are mixed in with the massage oil or lotion.
The subtle aroma of the essential oils fill the air around you during the massage.
We recommend the Indian head massage as an upgrade to this treatment, as the body’s energy is already opened up and flowing the effects of the Indian head massage will be more profound.
After the massage, your spa therapist may suggest a blend that you can use at home in between massage treatments. You can use straight essential oils in diffusers to add aromatherapy scent to the air, or you can bring home a bottle of aromatherapy oil for topical application at home.
