It is important that if you choose to have an aromatherapy massage that you do so with a registered professional who is aware of the contraindications of using certain essential oils on individuals with some medical conditions. The first time that you attend a spa they should take some basic medical details from you to ensure that they do not use oils on you that could cause problems with a pre-existing condition or irritate the skin or cause an allergic reaction that could have otherwise been prevented. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or recovering from surgery you should always check with your doctor before you have any kind of spa treatments or alternative therapies that involve essential oils.

Combining massage along with essential oils can have positive therapeutic effects on a number of conditions and can help those dealing with the issues that come alongside:

  • Insomnia and sleeping problems
  • Anxiety and depression

In order to make the most of your massage experience it is worth making sure that you don’t eat at least an hour before your appointment so as to prevent feeling uncomfortable whilst you are lying on the massage table. You should also take with you a bottle water to drink after your appointment has finished This is because the process of massage can release some natural toxins that are already in your body into your blood stream and the quickest way to remove these from your body is to drink plenty of water and naturally eliminate them. You should also make sure that you don’t have to rush straight back to work or off to collect the children from school as this will completely undo all of the calming qualities of the massage that you have just experienced.

So, now all you have to do is decide when and where you are going to have you massage.
