At Pragle Chiropractic And Massage Therapy a Massage Therapy center in Tallahassee, we offer aromatherapy during our massage therapy sessions to enhance the relaxing and healing qualities of a good massage. Essential oils, since they are healing upon inhalation, support massage treatments to relieve headaches, neck pain, back pain, respiratory ailments, etc.. Popular massage oils include French Lavender, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Geranium, and Sweet Orange. Lavender is the "go to" essential oil being the most versatile of all oils. It has amazing abilities to realign the bodies imbalances while providing deep relaxation or energy depending on what the needs are of each individual person.
Relaxation Massage is a full body massage with aromatherapy (if preferred) tailored to your individual needs using a combination of Swedish massage therapy techniques. Although more of a gentle treatment, a relaxation massage can still relieve headaches, neck pain, lower back pain while promoting deep, restful sleep and wellness.
Aromatherapy is a vast healing art which encompasses the study of the human body, plants, methods of extraction and many types of complementary medicine including Chiropractic and Massage therapy. Aromatherapy and the use of essential oils is a very ancient practice utilized by all of the past civilizations as a form of natural medicine and also for building good health and preventative medicine. It is a completely natural remedy that has many diverse uses for healing and relaxation.
