Relaxing Aroma Massage
Aroma massage can be described as a type of massage therapy that involves use of aromas. In this massage the masseuse uses essential oils made from plant oils that are highly concentrated. They are then added into the lotion or oil used for the purposes of massaging. Because the oils are light they are easily absorbed into the skin. Aroma massage is especially helpful to individuals who feel anxious, stressed or depressed. Other people who could potentially benefit from the massage are those suffering from insomnia, digestive disorders, headaches, back pain and premenstrual syndrome.
When you walk into a massage parlor, the first thing that the aroma masseuse does is engage you in a talk to establish what you want and the illnesses that you have. Subsequently, he/she selects different essential oils and mixes them with the massage lotion or oil. You will definitely feel the oils fill up the room during the massage process. In addition to calming and uplifting, an aroma massage also energizes, decongests and cleanses the body. You will leave the massage parlor completely refreshed and relaxed. Sometimes, the masseuse may be kind enough to offer you a special blend of the essential oils for you to use at home.
One thing you need to understand is that aroma massage is not for everyone. If you have open wounds, rashes, inflamed skin bruises and unhealed wounds, the massage is definitely not for you. Pregnant women are advised to check in with their doctors prior to booking an aroma massage. Make sure you do not eat a heavy meal before going for the massage to avoid discomfort and prolonged cases of retching.
