After a consultation, your therapist will select the most suitable essential oils to match your needs. This will depend upon your mental and physical condition. They will use a mix of light and slightly firmer pressure whilst rubbing the oils into your skin. Your body will immediately feel soothed as the oils begin to get absorbed. Many of them have specific healing properties that become more powerful as you breathe them in.
With this type of aromatherapy massage, you are getting the best of both worlds: a soothing and relaxing full body massage combined with emotional and physical healing due to the properties of the oils. The benefits of this type of massage are many and will vary according to the chosen mix of oils. Once your aromatherapy massage is complete, you can expect to feel the following:
- Reduced stress levels
- Reduced levels of anxiety
- An increase in calmness
- Removal of muscular tension
- All-over pain relief
- Lessening of any feeling of depression
No two people are the same, and neither is this type of massage. Because your therapist will tailor the use of oils to suit you, you should find that it targets your problem areas very precisely, whether mental or physical.
