An Introduction To Aromatherapy Massage – Aromatherapy Massage is a rhythmic using a medium that has been blended with essential oils. The treatment encourages absorption of these potent and beneficial oils through inhalation and, by massaging the blended medium into the skin. Different essential oils offer different health benefits; however, the overall aim of Aromatherapy Massage is to relax the nervous system, improving health and wellbeing.
How The Treatment Works
There are hundreds of essential oils that an Aromatherapist could potentially use in a treatment and each oil is said to offer different health and wellbeing benefits. For example, some essential oils can help calm and relax a client, whilst others can encourage better mental focus and a sense of clarity.
Common essential oils used in an Aromatherapy Massage Treatment are:
- Lavender and Geranium oil – very calming
- Ylang-Ylang, Rose and Neroli oil – uplifting and energizing
- Rosemary oil – aids mental focus and clarity
- Eucalyptus and Tea Tree oil – improves the respiratory system
An Aromatherapy Massage treatment uses traditional, slow and rhythmic Swedish Massage techniques to help spread the essential oil blend and relax the client. It can be offered as a full body massage treatment, or – a back, neck and shoulder massage treatment.
A good Aromatherapy Massage will offer “high-grade, therapeutic essential oils” – which means the quality of oils used, are the best they can be to offer maximum health and wellbeing benefits. Upon meeting an Aromatherapist, a client will have to fill out a consultation form – declaring any existing medical conditions. Some essential oils can be extremely potent and can interfere with existing medical conditions. A fully qualified Aromatherapist will know which essential oils are the most suitable for their client.
