Esstential Oils to Complement Your Massage in Incline Village
By now, most people have been introduced to essential oils. While essential oils have long been used as part of aromatherapy treatments at resorts and day spas, they are now accessible for use at massage centers to compliment your treatment. In this article, we’ll examine why certain essentials oils benefit massage treatments and what ingredients offer the most relief, enjoyment and long-term wellness.
When applied directly to the skin, essential oils can reach the muscles to provide relaxation, pain relief and more. These benefits are especially noticeable if your muscles have been strained, cramped or overworked. Recent targeted studies over the past few years have shown the ability for essential oils to absorb into the bloodstream easily when applied directly to the skin and worked in. The bloodstream then carries the essential oils to various muscles, which provides near immediate results and benefits that last long after the massage itself.
