Aromatherapy massage is an art of healing with very long traditions in which concentrated plant oils are added to the carrier oil to influence receiver’s body and mind. The olfactory sense is triggered using essential oils during massage.
The massage uses slow, gliding movements that soothe and calm the nervous system, and some oils are absorbed into the skin and ultimately the blood stream to produce healing effects. It is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function.
The natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant enhance psychological and physical well-being. There are a wide number of essential oils available, each with its own healing properties. Oil for a client will be chosen with regard to the clinical effects of different plants to given complaints alongside with subconscious preference of receiver’s body’s systems in liking the smell.
The inhaled aroma from these essential oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. The nostrils are attached to a part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones. Inhaling essential oil molecules the messages are transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion, and the immune system.
Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing. Aromatherapy can’t be used after alcohol consumption and the oils of citrus fruits shouldn’t be used before staying in sunshine.
