Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy Massage is a form of massage therapy using scented oil or lotion which contains various essential oils (often highly concentrated plant oils) in varying quantities. Most commonly, essential oils are used to add scent to a massage. Aromatherapy is based on the belief that certain scents are an indicator of an underlying health problem, and that by applying the scent to the skin, the user can then detect the underlying condition and relieve it. Essential oils are usually derived from plants in the Vastu plant family such as lavender, chamomile, geranium, orange blossom, ylang-ylang, jasmine, bergamot, cedarwood, and others. All these oils are commonly used for aromatherapy, but each specific scent is said to be an indicator of an underlying health problem and can be used as a preventive measure against stress, insomnia, fatigue, depression, and more.

Aromatherapy massage also uses other techniques such as heat treatment to reduce pain and swelling. It is known that certain scents have the ability to penetrate the skin and this penetration can stimulate the brain to reduce pain. In fact, aromatherapy massage therapy is often recommended for those who have chronic pain. Many chronic pain sufferers have reported that after only one session, the pain has significantly lessened.

Another important aspect of aromatherapy massage includes the use of essential oils. These are usually diluted with carrier oils such as olive oil, sweet almond oil, or coconut oil and then applied to the skin. Oils that are highly concentrated are also sometimes used. Essential oils are usually extracted from plants, and the process of extracting the oils involves distilling them into a liquid solution. Essential oils are very strong and therefore must be diluted thoroughly before applying to the body.

Aromatherapy is another popular form of alternative medicine practice which combines the healing power of touch therapy, as well as the soothing benefits of essential oils. Aromatherapy massages use both deep tissue massage and light stimulation to help stimulate the body's natural healing abilities. Many people suffering from disease and illness have reported great improvements after receiving an aromatherapy massage at a spa.

For example, if you have back pain, a deep tissue massage should provide pain relief. The massage therapist will apply soothing, therapeutic essential oils on the affected area. You will then be given the opportunity to relax in the steam room, take in the soothing sounds coming from the relaxing massage, and soak in the warm water. Once your body is properly relaxed and the therapeutic essential oils have been applied, you will then be asked to lie down on a massage table, surrounded by the soft, warm heat and soothing sounds. The massage table also has fans to circulate air to make sure that your body is properly warm.

Aromatherapy massage therapy can provide you with a number of benefits. By using essential oils you can target specific pain points or relax areas of your body that may be stiff or sore. By using aromatherapy massage therapy, you will not have to worry about applying too much cream or lotion when you get out of the tub. You will only need a very small amount of massage oil to provide a good, deep healing massage.

Aromatherapy massages can be provided for adults or children who have health-related issues. Aromatherapy uses the healing power of essential oils, combined with various techniques such as cupping, feathering, rubbing, and inhalation. Breathing techniques such as pursed-lip breathing can be used when inhaling essential oils such as eucalyptus, pine, lavender, or geranium. These scents have the ability to relax and stimulate the central nervous system, increase circulation, and promote a healthy lymphatic system.
