Improve Your Massage With Aromatherapy
When used along with massage, aromatherapy has the ability to improve the pleasure and therapeutic results of the treatment. If you’re unfamiliar with aromatherapy, it involves the use of essential oils that come from plant sources to promote healing. Essential oils may be applied to your skin or they may be inhaled to reap the benefits. Within the scientific community, aromatherapy has received a lot of attention as an alternative treatment option for infections, stress, and many other medical problems.
One of the benefits of aromatherapy is that the essential oils come from all natural sources. You may not realize that your sense of smell is nearly as strong as your sense of taste. This is what makes aromatherapy such a powerful alternative treatment. It’s been shown to be helpful to individuals with breathing disorders, such as asthma, and scientific studies show that smell has the power to activate even obscure memories.
Aromatherapy is particularly beneficial when a massage therapist combines it with massage therapy. Together, massage and aromatherapy may be able to reduce menstrual cramps, regulate hormones, and provide relief from migraines. Some of the other medical benefits this combination include increased energy, lower levels of inflammation, stronger immune system, muscle relaxation, and reduced congestion. Deep tissue massage with aromatherapy may also improve sleep quality and improve overall circulation.
