The most popular method in Aromatherapy applications is the Aromatherapy massage, which comes with a blend of different essential oils and several massage techniques. The process of massage had been in use from several centuries, starting as a traditional method in Chinese healing therapy. The effects of massage showed positive results both on body and soul. The major sites of the body which get more benefit by massage therapy are the Musculoskeletal system, circulatory system, and the nervous system.
A perfect blend of essential oils along with some carrier oils like almond, cocoa butter, sheer butter etc., can affect the body both physically and psychologically. Some oils are triggered by the senses during the massage and some are absorbed in to the skin and later in to the blood stream to produce healing effects. Many researches have shown that aromatherapy is an excellent process for stress relief.
Massage is a therapy which involves hand strokes ranging from gentle to harder, depending upon the patients problem. A deep consultation with the therapist prior to the massage helps you to tell him about your problem clearly and so that he can decide what kind of oils to use and which kind of massage to be given. Only with proper techniques, and correct blend of oils one can completely enjoy the benefits of massage.
During the Aromatherapy process many of the oils are inhaled, or absorbed through mouth or nose which helps in producing relaxations to all the senses. Getting out of stress is very important these days because it may lead to further complications like hyper tension, headaches, migraine pains, and some digestive problems also. It is an effective way to refresh from your daily routine and an easy way to get out of stress.
Consulting a good therapist is an important step in massage therapy since it is a very personal thing. And it is also important to follow the use of particular oils suggested by the therapist even after the massage.
