What Is Aromatherapy Massage?

Aromatherapy-Massage1Massage using essential oils is an integral part of aromatherapy, a subset of massage therapy.

The massage consists of contrasting soft and firm strokes, and is performed using a special combination of essential oils.

When used in a massage, essential oils are often diluted with a carrier oil such as lotion. Essential oils are said to have therapeutic effects both on the skin and the respiratory system, so the client may reap the benefits of both with a single treatment.

Therapists may go as far as having their clients utilise an oil diffuser to inhale the oils directly, rather than just exposing them to a little mist. Performing an aromatherapy massage is the same as performing any other type of massage. When you and your therapist finally meet, you may talk about whatever problems you're having or goals you want to achieve (only if this was not discussed prior). After you explain to the therapist the nature of your problem and your preferences in terms of oil blends, they will present you with a menu of treatment alternatives. A customer might ask for a more broad request like an invigorating, elevating, soothing, or decongesting massage if they aren't seeking treatment for specific nerves, muscles, or joints. After you've selected your oils, the therapist will let you undress and settle in. From there, your journey will officially begin.

There is inconsistency in the scientific studies that support the use of essential oils. Essential oils have been shown to help in the healing process, however there has been no conclusive study to prove a direct link between the use of essential oils and the promotion of health. Aside from the physical benefits of a full body massage, aroma therapeutic massages are also said to have positive effects on a person's mental and emotional well-being.
