Using essential oils during massage is pretty much mainstream these days. We've been doing that or have at least heard about that for decades. Essential oils can be the ultimate compliment to massage for many different conditions and situations. Using oils that are naturally relaxing and soothing can reduce the over stimulation of the mind and help calm those stress responses while using oils that reduce pain and inflammation might be perfect for someone with a chronic or recent injury. When was the last time you smelled an orange and it made you smile, or a certain smell that brought back a happy and heartfelt memory? Essential oils and the art of Aromatherapy have the power to bring you to total relaxation and ease your discomfort with even just a sniff.
We have been using essential oils in our practice for years and our line of oils was designed after years of that use because we have seen how powerful aromatherapy can be, how it can help you breathe deeper, support you during depression, grief and loss, or even just help your poor back spasm diminish or that rolled ankle become less painful. We offer classes monthly for various oil related topics, and always offer aromatherapy options during our massages so be sure to ask about adding them to your session next time you are in. If you love essential oils already and want tips and tricks be sure and follow us on social media, Facebook and Instagram.
