Aromatherapy Body Massage - Symphony of Oils

Admin       Print    

Massage therapy is beneficial on its own; however when its used in conjunction with essential oils, these two therapies can be synergistically more beneficial than when they're performed separately. Aromatherapy massage involves a massage treatment using essential oils.

Most oils used equally promote relaxation, ease tense muscles and joints, improve circulation, and energize one’s mood. Picking an oil to match your needs is something a good practitioner can go over with you, in order to pinpoint your specific desires. Most popular for calming the mind, stress reduction, and restful sleep are lavender and chamomile, which interestingly have similar benefits when ingested as a tea. Among the energizing oils are orange, ylang ylang, and rosemary. Uplifting oils include lemongrass and grapefruit.
