It is often assumed that massage is used only to relieve stress and tension that you carry with you in your muscles. However, including aromatherapy in your massage can help relax your mind and body, relieve pain, improve your energy levels, and have longer lasting effects than just massage alone. In a variety of clinical studies, aromatherapy has been shown to improve mental clarity, relieve anxiety and relieve pain.

Methods for Using Aromatherapy

Aromatherapies can be included in your massage in several different ways. A scent can be used by placing the oil in a diffuser while you are being massaged. This fills the room with inviting fragrance and allows you to experience the beneficial effects of the oil. Oils can also be applied directly to the body. Typically oils are diluted in an unscented carrier oil and worked into the skin as part of the massage. Massage with Aromatherapy in Breckenridge CO

Benefits of Oils

Different oils offer different benefits. Lavender is especially known for its calming effects. Other oils that calm and relax include chamomile and ylang-ylang. Citrus oils have a tendency to energize and revitalize. Grapefruit, bergamot and tangerine oils can all work to boost your mood. Other oils promote mental clarity, boost your immune system, and offer relief from chronic pain.

An Aromatherapy Massage at The Spa at Breckenridge

When you choose the aromatherapy massage at The Spa at Breckenridge, our professionals will help tailor the massage to your specific needs. We will talk with you to see what you hope to achieve with the massage, such as relaxation, revitalization, or relief from stress or anxiety. We then administer an aroma test to determine the best oils to use for your mind and body. Each massage is unique to the individual.
Our aromatherapy massage includes traditional Swedish massage techniques, but also incorporates lymphatic massage. This massage helps your body eliminate harmful toxins and restores you to equilibrium. The aromatherapy massage is designed to address muscle tension, but also promotes mental, emotional, and physical wellness.

Beyond Massage

The practice of using aromatherapy can continue beyond your massage. You can use a diffuser in your home, use essential oils with bath salts, or apply them to your skin with a diluted solution. Using aromatherapy in your home can help extend the restorative benefits of a massage. Massage with Essential Oils in Breckenridge CO
While a traditional Swedish massage addresses tension and anxiety held in your muscles, an aromatherapy massage can address stress that is carried throughout your entire body. Aromatherapy can bring about health and wholeness in an entirely new way. If you enjoy massage, consider taking it to a new level of relaxation and wellness with aromatherapy.
