Essential Oils for Massage TherapyMarch 10
Posted in Massage
Salon Sleek offers a variety of massage therapy services designed to enhance your physical and emotional wellbeing. Massage goes beyond just relaxation and relieving stress—it improves circulation, reduces muscle tension, and increases flexibility. You can further enhance these benefits by adding essential oils and aromatherapy to your massage experience.
Essential oils and their benefits
Essential oils are derived directly from plants through a delicate extraction process that draws out both the oil and the aroma. The oil contains the plant’s natural healing properties, such as anti-inflammatory and antiseptic qualities. These can help to reduce swelling and improve skin’s appearance. The oil also releases the plant’s aromatic scent which stimulates mental relaxation. The aromatic benefits can be increased by warming and massaging the oil, which activates its properties.
Some common essential oils are eucalyptus, rose, and lavender. Eucalyptus oil is known best for its stress-relieving abilities and is infused into lotions, creams, and skincare products. Rose oil offers a powerful floral scent that alerts and invigorates the senses. Lavender oil is commonly found in perfumes, bubble baths, and body sprays. Its calming scent quickly absorbs and provides a faint aroma throughout the day.
