The Benefits of Aromatherapy Massage
Are you feeling stressed? Anxious? Exhausted? (Who isn’t?!) If so, consider boosting the relaxation and revitalization effects of your next massage by incorporating aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy massage combines the healing and restorative power of scent with traditional massage therapy. Aromatic essential oils are typically added to carrier oils or massage lotions and then applied to your skin during the massage, or they may be diffused in the air. As you deeply inhale those scents, you’ll immediately feel more balanced mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Want to Try an Aromatherapy Massage?
You should! Aromatherapy massage can help anyone enhance their massage experience and restore mind/body alignment. If you’ve been tense, in pain, or just need to recharge after a long week, give aromatherapy a try! Different essential oils can help with different issues; for example, you can try lavender to calm, citrus to energize, peppermint to reduce pain, and even eucalyptus to help clear a stuffy head. Talk to your massage therapist about your specific needs.
