Hello! As a massage therapist, I am so thankful for your business, but I am equally thankful that you
trusted me to help you learn about essential oils.
Young Living’s essential oils are superior to any other brand that I’ve used in the past! If you become a YL member, you’ll be able to experience the benefit of essential oils in-between massage appointments.
I’ve been a massage therapist for 13 years, and I must share, the quality, muscular support and health benefits of Young Living essential oils amazes me everyday! You will make an investment into your health whether you know it or not. Since becoming a member 3 years ago, I’ve noticed my own immune system strengthen so that I am able to avoid seasonal yucky stuff faster – or at least it doesn’t hang around as long. I never experienced this type of support with other brands in previous years.
Have you ever tried an aromatherapy massage? Well, you have come to the right place!
Let me make you a custom blend designed for your muscular system so you can reap the health benefits during your massage treatment.
Using Essential Oils in Massage
Otherwise known as aromatherapy massage, a massage using essential oils is a real treat, and has many positive effects that make it a treat worth investing in.
There are two main reasons why a massage therapist may use essential oils in their treatments.
- The essential oils used in massage can have beneficial effects on different areas of your body and health.
- They smell nice – but the aroma isn’t just a pleasant addition to your treatment. Aromas are well known to trigger emotions in the part of your brain that deals with memories, which is why the smell of your mom’s cooking or your grandma’s favorite perfume can transport you back in time and make you feel good. Some scents, like citris or lavender oils have a very similar effect and just inhaling them as you’re enjoying your massage makes you feel good.
- Essential oils and pregnancy
If you’re pregnant, you should always tell your massage therapist before an aromatherapy massage because although essential oils are safe in the vast majority of cases, there are a few specific essential oils that are best avoided in the first trimester of pregnancy.Essential oils and muscular discomfort
Using essential oils in a massage is ideal if you’re experiencing symptoms like inflammation or pain. The aromatherapy adds an extra layer of benefit to a soothing massage and seems to magnify the effects of a treatment which can give you even more relief than a basic massage.Essential oils and stress
Just breathing in the gorgeously relaxing scent of lavender essential oil can calm you down if you’re having a stressful time. Lavender essential oil is great for muscular discomfort and widely used in stress-busting massage treatments.
