Aromatherapy Massage in Breckenridge CO

Aromatherapy uses specific scents to lift the mood, calm and relax, and even relieve some pain. Most commonly, aromatherapy employs essential oils either through a diffuser, or mixed into oils and lotions rubbed directly on the skin. Combining aromatherapy with massage can have astounding results, both physically and mentally. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from aromatherapy massage in Breckenridge.

Relaxation Aromatherapy Massage in Breckenridge

When you have been stressed and can’t seem to let go and relax, try aromatherapy massage. Oils such as lavender are known to have a calming effect and even induce sleep. Psychology Today cited a study in Japan that found Yuzu oil calmed heart rates and lowered stress and anxiety. Additionally, the National Cancer Institute found that chamomile helped relieve anxiety. These oils used alongside a massage that releases muscle tension can help you relax and possibly even improve sleep.


While some people are hoping to relax and slow down, others want to add a little pep to their lives. Aromatherapy can also be used to lift the mood and boost energy, ultimately improving productivity. According to Organic Facts the best oils for boosting energy are black pepper, cardamom, tea tree, and sage. Massage is also known to improve circulation. Better circulation improves oxygen flow to your brain and all parts of your body giving you the mental energy you need to focus and concentrate on whatever task is at hand.

Relieve Headaches

Massage can address muscle tension in the neck, back, and head that often results in headaches. Oils such as peppermint and eucalyptus are also known for relieving headaches. Massage along with the use of these oils can combat even migraines without the use of a variety of drugs.
