Surround yourself with the aromas of relaxation such as lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus, lemon verbena and chamomile. Aromatherapy is a holistic approach to countering the stress of your wedding day. Enjoy aromatherapy during a meditation session or infused with oil for a massage.


Prepare for deep relaxation with reflexology, a type of spa treatment that concentrates on stimulating pressure points on your feet, hands or head. Reflexology works on a principle that the body carries energy pathways that may be activated with a variety of techniques including rubbing, pressing, kneading and rotation.

On your actual wedding day, it is recommended that all spa treatments be completed so that you may focus solely on your hair, make-up and clothing.
