How to Relax With An Aromatherapy Massage
Have you been looking for a new way to pamper yourself? If so, I would highly recommend that you look into getting an aromatherapy massage, as it can be a very rewarding experience. Once you give it a try, I can almost guarantee that you’ll want to go back for additional massage therapy sessions.
For those of you who may not be familiar with what aromatherapy massage is all about, I will be more than happy to explain it you. Getting an aromatherapy massage is a lot like getting a regular massage but with one major difference. In this particular type of massage, various scented essential oils are added to the massage lotion. For those of you who aren’t familiar with essential oils, they are plant extracts that are made up of bark, leaves, roots, flowers and seed resins. The reason these scented essential oils are used is because they are believed to have healing properties. For example, if you are in need of stress relief, lavender or chamomile works great for this. If you have been feeling exhausted lately, using rosemary oil during your massage will work great to help perk you up. If you’re going through a bout of sadness, a massage with rose or neroli oil can work wonders to help lift your spirits. Also, if you’re suffering from a bad cold, eucalyptus and/or tea tree oil has excellent decongesting properties. There are even certain essential oils that can help you to focus and concentrate better such as basil and angelica. Therefore, getting a massage with those particular oils shortly before a big test may actually help to improve your overall performance! As you can see, aromatherapy massage can help to improve a number of different conditions.

Hopefully the video gave you some idea what to expect during your first aromatherapy massage visit. You need more information, then read on. For starters, the massage therapist will generally consult with you to find out what kind of problems you’ve been having. That will then help to decide which essential oils would be of the greatest benefit to you. They will then mix these essential oils in with the massage lotion. They will then get started with the actual massage. Not only will the massage itself feel great, but you will also be able to enjoy the lovely scent of the essential oils that are being used on you.
Best of luck to you, and I hope that you enjoy your aromatherapy massage!
