Massage Treatment Finds Balance with Aromatic Blends


With emotions and stress as the top source for weight concerns, a new body treatment has incorporated the aromachological benefits of essential oils and massage methods for overall well-being and balance.

Aromatic Blends for Balance 

Massage expert Chico Shigeta and aromachologist Patty Canac worked with Decléor to develop a tailor-made body shaping program, Aroma Blend, using 25 efficacious essential oils from the aromatic world. These 100% pure and natural essential oils and plant oils are pure concentrates of active ingredients.
