Aromatherapy massage is massage therapy with essential oils (highly concentrated plant oils) added to the massage oil or lotion.
Inhaling essential oils through the nose is thought to promote beneficial changes in the mind and body by affecting the limbic system (a region of the brain known to influence the nervous system). Essential oils are also believed to be absorbed through the skin.
Why Do People Get Aromatherapy Massage?
Since aromatherapy massage is a bit like Swedish massage but with scent added, people often get it for muscle- and joint-related conditions or for physical or mental stress.
Other conditions include:
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
Each essential oil used in aromatherapy is said to have different properties. For example, some calm while others energize. Here are some widely used essential oils and their purported properties:
Calming – chamomile, lavender, geranium
Uplifting – ylang-ylang, clary sage, rose, neroli
Energizing – rosemary
Decongesting – eucalyptus, pine, tea tree
Your massage therapist may pick oils based on your symptoms.
