An aromatherapy massage can help to even out any negative side effects of stress quickly and easily and when feeling tired or your muscles ache from too much exercise, it can be incredibly beneficial to have an aromatherapy massage as the gentle pure essential oils can help the masseur to relax any tense or tight muscles. Aromatherapy oils have been around a long time, used holistically by those who have an interest in this complimentary treatment. It can have a huge psychological feel good effect on the recipient and an aromatherapy massage provides so many benefits such as:
– Softens fatty tissues

In addition, an aromatherapy massage also helps to lower blood pressure and heart rate as well as relaxing muscles. The oils from the pure essential oils stimulate the olfactory nerves and a feel good message is then sent to the rest of the body. The scent can last some time and the benefits are long reaching. Finding a good and experienced aromatherapy masseur is important because a strong trust has to be forged between client and masseur.

If mixing up your own oils is of interest for self-massages at home, then it is worth reading up on all of the properties contained within the oils and take time to review their contra-indications first. Oils have healing properties or can be used just to stimulate the senses. Investing in a good quality pure essential oil is paramount however, as there are a lot of cheaper alternatives but they will not offer the same benefits. When mixing your own oils, ensure that the quality of the oils used match your specific requirements and enjoy the creative sensation of mixing your own aromatherapy massage treatments.
