During an aromatherapy massage with 100% natural and pure essential oils, molecules are inhaled and also absorbed through your largest organ: the skin! Essentials oil constituents are shown to promote beneficial changes in your mind and body by affecting the limbic system, a region of the brain known to influence the nervous system.
Each essential oil used in aromatherapy has different properties (constituents) and therefore different effects. For example, some calm and make you feel relaxed while others energize. Some support mind and mood, while others support our respiratory, immune, and digestive systems, just to name a few! Essential oils also provide phenomenal pain management support and are incredibly effective when incorporated into Massage Therapy.
Use of therapeutic essential oils in massage may be beneficial for the following:
- Anxious feelings
- Feelings of self-doubt or sadness
- Help with memory and focus
- Occasional sleeplessness
- Menstrual pain
- Abnormal cell growth, weakening, feeling unwell, etc.
