Aromatherapy Massage – A delight for your senses Aromatherapy massages are a wonderful way to indulge in deep relaxation. The masseuse uses soothing massage techniques along with aromatic essential oils. It is a restorative experience that will leave you relaxed and at peace.
Here, the essential experience is a combination of massage therapy with the healing properties of essential oils. Inhaling essential oils are considered to be therapeutic since it precipitates beneficial changes in the body and the mind of the experiencer, by affecting the limbic system. (A region of the brain that is known to influence the nervous system)
The massage uses very soft pressure along with long strokes with the added benefit of aromatherapy. What the aromatherapy massage does is not so much removal of physical kinks and pains, but it leverages the power of essential oils to relax and heal the body and the mind.
With over 3,000 plus essential oils to choose from, there is literally one specific oil for every ailment from stress, insomnia, inflammation, lack of energy, and even depression. At Myrah Spa, we offer a choice of four different blends of oils – viz. Aura Uplift, Aura Calm, Aura Re-Energise, and Aura Detox.
Aromatherapy can be used to treat pain, muscle spasms, stiffness, congestion, hypertension, etc. There are several oils that deliver an euphoric effect. The overall effect of aromatherapy is a sense of well-being, healing, and wellness.
As with every massage, you can expect to feel stiff and even tender, though this willsubside after a couple of days leaving you more relaxed than ever.
If you desire to reduce the tenderness, warm-up your muscles with a bath, a heat pack or steam. Once your muscles are warm, we also recommend dynamic stretching to release some of the tenderness and to further lengthen your muscles.
It is also essential to stay hydrated before and after the treatment to ensure that you get the best results.
Avoid eating right before a massage.
