The Compounding Benefits of Aromatherapy and Therapeutic Massage
May 01, 2017 06:31PM
Therapeutic massage is a powerful means to promote overall health and wellness and is also an effective tool to instill balance and tackle the challenges of contemporary, fast-pased living. Similarly, aromatherapy has proven to be a useful modality to overcome anxiety, instill energy and relieve stress while providing numerous physical benefits as well. When massage and essential oils are combined, these potential benefits are compounded, providing relief that is more than the sum of its parts.
When essential oils are worked into the body and muscles during massage, they can quickly enter the bloodstream and go to work. Each essential oil has specific properties that can affect physical, mental and emotional well-being. The combination of essential oils and various massage techniques make aromatherapy massage an ideal treatment for stress, anxiety, pain relief and circulation. Uniting these two modalities also helps boost the immune system, combat negative feelings and open the heart to move through grief and instill emotional healing.
When was the last time we took an hour to disconnect from life to focus on self-care? The calming, nurturing aromas of pure essential oils coupled with massage can help the body and mind enter its rest-and-recovery mode, leaving us feeling physically and mentally revitalized, ready to take on the world with a renewed sense of balance and vigor.
