Benefit from Oil and Aromatherapy Massage in Detail
Previously thought of as merely a relaxing massage, aromatherapy has now emerged as a great option for people suffering from a variety of ailments such as stress, insomnia, depression, inflammation etcetera. An aromatherapy massage essentially involves harnessing the therapeutic and restorative properties of plant derived essential oils, absolutes, herbal distillates, and infusions to heal your body and mind.
The driving philosophy behind aromatherapy is manipulation of an individual’s limbic system. The limbic system, attached to our nostrils, is known to control our emotions, nervous system and hormones levels. Apart from restoring the balance of an individual’s limbic system, an aromatherapy oil massage also ensures:
1) improved blood circulation in the massaged area, and invigorates muscles;
2) enhanced flexibility and strength; and
3) freedom from crippling migraines, headaches, cramps and spasms
Be mindful that aromatherapy primarily delivers its healing and therapeutic benefits due to the use of essential oils and herbal extracts, and not from any specialized massage technique. Thus, if your goal is general relaxation and rejuvenation, then you could opt for any deep tissue massage.
