The Health Benefits of Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy massage is a type of massage therapy that uses essential oils in a massage session. Aromatherapy has been around since the invention of distillation, during the 11th century. These oils are derived from plants and flowers and contain the true essence of the plant. They are also highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way. Essential oils can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin to provide both psychological and physical well being. Each essential oil has different properties and uses. Many times, oils are blended together to treat a specific condition, having an even greater effect than if each one were applied separately.
During an aromatherapy massage, the therapist listens to your complaints and symptoms. Based on the symptoms, the therapist will use an essential oil or blend of oils in the massage session that will help alleviate those symptoms. The oils activate the sense of smell and the limbic system, which is attached to the brain, is exposed to the various oils and lotions you are using during the massage.
The limbic system helps to manage the nervous system, emotions and even handles hormones throughout the body. To help with physical symptoms, these essential oils have components that can reduce inflammation and have other healing properties. A lot of essential oils are anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal.
