Essential oils and aromatherapy are incredibly healing if used the right way. Aromatherapy during massage therapy enhances the relaxing and healing qualities of a good massage. Essential oils, since they pass the blood-brain barrier immediately upon inhalation, support massage treatments which can relieve headaches, neck pain and back pain. Popular massage oils include 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.
Deep Tissue Massage Therapy 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 that annoying neckor shoulder pain.
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.
