  • Pain management

  • Muscle spasms 
  • Problems of the soft tissues 
  • Anxiety 
  • Depression 
  • Insomnia 
  • Emotional stress 
  • It helps premature babies to gain or weight problems 
  • Help the elderly 
  • Help improve the immune system 
  • Asthma Treatment 
  • Eating Disorders 
  • Hypertension 
  • Recovery of accidents and surgeries 

Massage therapy is not a substitute for conventional medicine, but provides an excellent complement. 

The manipulation of the soft tissues is what we mean when we talk about massage but aromatherapy introduces the power of essential oils in the equation to bring their intrinsic therapeutic properties for massage.

Massage is beneficial in more ways than simply being relaxing and helps with various aspects.

There are several methods:

Swedish

This method of massage is the most popular type of massage developed by Professor Ling. This type of massage is beneficial for promoting the sense of wellbeing and also helps to reduce emotional and physical stress.

Neuromuscular massage

This form of massage is the basis of aromatherapy massage and evolved from the work of Stanley Leif. Also known as therapy "trigger point" and the overall effect of this massage is to restore the balance of the autonomic nervous system.

Lymphatic massage

This massage helps to improve the flow of lymph and some techniques developed by Marguerite Maury are incorporated into the aromatherapy massage. Lymphatic drainage massage is particularly useful in detoxifying the body and boosting the immune system.

Acupressure and Shiatsu Massage

This method of massage focuses on the meridians (channels) of the body and to alleviate "locks" through pressure points on the body. It can be carried out while the person is fully dressed, does not require as acupuncture needles.

Reflexology

In foot reflexology (although the rest of the body can also be used) are handled and massages and emphasize certain points on the feet that are said to have corresponding parts or organs of the body.

Rolfing

This technique was developed by Dr. Ida Rolfand focuses on massaging the fascia - the connective tissue that holds the muscles - to bring the body into alignment again.

Aromatherapy massage has a more holistic approach to massage and may include some of the principles listed above, but will focus on more relaxing strokes, but of great importance is the selection of essential / s during the massage oil used as they are chosen for their therapeutic effect, and not the fragrance itself.

Application techniques of massage include caressing, rubbing, pressing and kneading the muscles, skin and joints and can range from the more aggressive one relaxing massage until smooth.

Application techniques of massage include caressing, rubbing, pressing and kneading the muscles, skin and bones.
