Aromatherapy massage combines the use of essential oils with therapeutic soft tissue massage. It includes a variety of massage strokes concentrating more on relaxing techniques to warm muscles, release tension, loosen muscle tightness and increase circulation.
Aromatherapy is the inhalation and absorption by the skin of essential oils. Essential oils are the fragrant, highly concentrated natural constituents that are found in various parts of plants such as leaves, berries, grasses, flowering tops, petals, roots, zest of fruit, resins and wood. Essential oils possess natural healing properties without harmful side-effects.
When used correctly essential oils have a broad range of health benefits and can be used for a wide range of conditions. Virtually all essential oils possess antiseptic properties and many also have anti-fungal, anti-viral & anti-bacterial properties. These are just a few of my favourite essential oils:
Geranium – reduces inflammation, alleviate anxiety and balance hormones. This sweet-smelling oil can also uplift your mood, lessen fatigue and promote emotional wellness.
Frankincense – increase blood flow and circulation. Reduces inflammation and skin imperfections. Promotes feelings of wellness and relaxation.
Sweet Orange – relaxes muscular and nervous spasms. A natural sedative that helps you to relax. It can help alleviate anxiety, anger, depression and certain inflammation.
Many of my clients have experience a variety of benefits from having aromatherapy massage which have included:
- Relief of stress and tension.
- Reduced muscle spasms.
- Improved mobility and flexibility.
- Reduction of anxiety/depression, and improved feeling of well-being.
- Improved sleep patterns.
- Reduction in frequency of headaches and migraines.
- Increased energy levels.
- Improved digestion.
