Massage & aromatherapy in one portable product, T Spheres are innovative self-massage tools born from over 17 years of research and development. The infusion of aromatherapy essential oils into a perfectly weighted double-purified rubber compound makes T Spheres unique – offering both beneficial attributes in a portable package. Each set comes with two T Spheres, a spray-top refresher oil and simple "how to use" pictorial instructions in a travel bag.

Created By A Professional Massage Therapist
Stephanie Whittier LMT, CST has been practicing massage therapy, craniosacral therapy and studying movement in relationship to pain relief for over 25 years. Her extensive education, diverse clientele and constant travels for her work led her to the invention of T Spheres.

About The Aromatherapy Oil In T Spheres
The aromatherapy in the T Sphere massage ball is pure essential oil. We do not use manufactured scents or chemical binders in the process of making T Spheres. The specifics are trade secrets but the concept allows for the aroma to disperse for slow release of the essential oil and can last up to 3 months. Each set has specific beneficial qualities and can be found listed on the shop pages.

Benefits Of Aromatherapy
Our brain processes aromatherapy essential oils through the olfactory system to the Limbic System, which controls our emotions and stores learned memories. The central nervous system is the key connection for the aromatherapy inhalation to assist your system to respond to stress levels naturally. This causes chemicals to be released and can alter mood and mindset – causing feelings of relaxation, calmness, or even stimulation. That's aromatherapy working – the power of essential oils can be transporting!
