When you want to relieve pain, relax, or just get away from the stresses of life, there's nothing better than a massage. Using touch to heal has been a practice used by ancient civilizations for centuries.
Massage continues to be a popular choice for deep relaxation, reduction of stress, anxiety, and depression, and as a complementary therapy for other treatments like chiropractic.
In most spas today, therapists often use essential oils to enhance the massage, resulting in what is known as an aromatherapy massage. Essential oils are concentrated plant molecules that science has shown to have physical, mental, and emotional effects and can truly elevate any massage experience.
There are incredible benefits in receiving an essential oil massage so there's no excuse not to experience the amazing benefits of combining essential oils with massage therapy. Most people think relaxation when they hear aromatherapy, but there is so much more that essential oils can do for you!
*Because essential oils can be caustic on their own, make sure you use a carrier oil when applying topically.
