One of the main reasons that Rhonda of Idaho Falls massage uses them in her massage sessions is that they are aromatic and help with emotional, physical and spiritual health.
Idaho Falls massage incorporates the essential oils through Aromatherapy. The diffusion of essential oils through a diffuser is aromatherapy. Also the application of essential oils on the body, usually in a carrier oil.
- Oregano or peppermint on the feet
- Eucalyptus on the chest/nose area
- or Rosemary on the scalp.
Essential oils when applied during massage can enhance the benefits of massage. Massage can be invigorating, relaxing, stimulating and soothing. Therefore whatever your expectations of the massage Rhonda at Idaho Falls Massage is knowledgeable in the uses of essential oils.
For example if you want a deeply relaxing massage Rhonda may incorporate lavender, ylang ylang, or chamomile, for example.
Sore muscles may be helped by incorporating lavender, sandalwood and clary sage as examples.
At Idaho Falls Massage Rhonda is aware of issues that would contraindicate use of certain essential oils. Certain oils should not be used on pregnant women or others with certain health conditions.
Every month Rhonda will select an essential oil and discuss its benefits and uses.
