What is Aromatherapy Massage?
Aromatherapy massage is essential, professional and specific, that combines two popular and powerful techniques for increased relaxation, stress reduction, and ease of pain relief. Using essential oils that can be inhaled or applied topically, deliver soothing, healing, and comforting effects. You may find that Aromatherapy massage provides the additional therapeutic and psychological care you need to get the maximum benefits from your massage.
Benefits to Aromatherapy massage
The benefits of aromatherapy come from the scent of the oils which have the power to transform emotions and heal. Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment which aids in the restoration of harmony between the mind and body, designed to significantly improve physical and psychological well-being. People who experience depression and anxiety may see improvements when having regular Aromatherapy massages due to the release of positive endorphins in the brain.
Researchers has shown in various studies that Aromatherapy can have a positive effect on many people especially women by reducing the pain and discomfort of menstrual cramps and easing menopausal symptoms. This particular treatment can also benefit pregnant women (However there are certain types of oil which cannot be used, such as Sage, Rosemary, Basil, Nut Meg and Citronella. If in doubt please seek medical advice from your GP). A reduction in insomnia, agitation, constipation, pain, itching, and psoriasis are also known to be further benefits from the Aromatherapy massage.
What to expect during an Aromatherapy massage
A personal consultation will ensure that you receive a unique treatment to suit your specific needs. You will be given two large Spa towels and I will leave the room while you undress and position yourself comfortably on the massage table. A typical full body session will last for 60 minutes and include work on your back, neck and shoulders, arms, legs, feet and hands, abdomen, a mini facial and scalp work can also be incorporated at request. This technique is primarily aimed at relaxation and uses long flowing movements
Aromatherapy Massage Precautions
If you are a highly sensitive person, you may want to avoid essential oils on your skin (and possibly avoid inhaling them). If you have a dislike to heavy smells and perfumes, I can use a small amount of essential oils during your massage if any at all. Talk with your doctor to see if Aromatherapy massage is right for you, especially if you have a history of allergies.
