At Where Soul Meets Body, we have a plethora of oils available as diffused aromas during your session. Upon request, the oil of your choice may be added to our massage lotion or grapeseed oil to customize your session even further (additional fees apply).

Doterra's Breathe blend is also known as their respiratory blend. It includes ingredients such as eucalyptus, peppermint, & melaleuca (tea tree) essential oils. Breathe's main benefit is to maintain feelings of clear airways and easy breathing, but it may also assist in minimizing the effects of seasonal threats. Aromatically, Breathe is minty and fresh.

While a soothing stones massage uses hot rocks throughout the entire session, the hot stones accompaniment uses the rocks only on specific, targeted muscles that need it the most. Is also a great introduction for individuals who have never experienced a hot stone treatment before.
// Face and Scalp
Stimulate your senses with this aromatic add-on. After a quick facial massage, we will use a few drops of peppermint oil, diluted in fractionated coconut oil, to end your massage with a soothing scalp massage. Peppermint has been shown to help with sinuses, headaches, and overall sense of comfort. While scalp massages are incorporated into every Where Soul Meets Body session, this add-on guarantees just a few extra minutes spent on everyone's favorite part of a massage, while also helping to regain focus and keep "massage brain" to a minimum.

With this add-on, you are reserving our treatment room for an extra 15 minutes, where we will leave you to bask in your relaxation,take time to reflect, if needed, and allows you to get up at your own pace! Also helps to prevent massage-drunk driving!

Add this simple yet satisfying accompaniment to any massage. Towels that have been warmed to the perfect temperature will be placed on your back and feet to warm and relax your body. Guaranteed to bring your session to the next level.
Fresh Ginger and turmeric powder are mulled together with oil to create a paste, then applied to your back accompanied by a hot towel. While massaging your lower body, the natural heat and healing properties from the the ginger and turmeric will help to release tension in your back while allowing your body to completely zone out.
