Massage with essential oils. What you should know about

Exhausted? A massage is appropriate!

Why we usually choose a massage has one reason: tensions that are associated with unpleasant pain.

Most people do not know that tension pain not only comes from excessive physical exertion but has many psychological causes.

Our daily stressful, fast-paced life promotes some aches and pains.

There are different types of massages, which cause relaxing, circulation-promoting, metabolism-stimulating, detoxifying and pain-relieving effects.

Here, however, massage not only helps as a pure application of manual therapy, but also the mental “tension” should be solved at the same time, in order to offer the body the opportunity to successfully treat a “tension” by means of an aromatherapy massage.

The essential massage for Pain:

For this we should know that our body reacts not only to the senses: to feel, to hear, to see, to taste, to taste, but also to smell.

For all massages, the use of essential oils, which mixed with a carrier oil, result in individually applicable massage oil.

What are carrier oils? These are skin-caring oils that make it possible to use the healing properties of essential oils, which should not be used neatly, in a mixture.

What is an essential oil massage?

The ingredients of the essential oils are absorbed during manual therapy by the skin, our largest organ and our sensory organs. The scent of the oils acts directly on our nervous system in the brain and provides targeted relaxation.

Benefits essential oil and massage.

We realize: Using Essential oils are an important part of a massage.
