Are Aromatherapy and Massage Effective?

Thursday, June 4, 2015 1:06:31 PM Europe/London

Appreciating the Effectiveness of Aromatherapy

There are several kinds of massage and all have their benefits and circumstances in which they are best advised and administered and here we will be talking about the intricacies of aromatherapy and how much it benefits. Aromatherapy is where essential oils are added to the lotion that is used for massage. The essential oils are concentrated plant oils like eucalyptus, sage, lavender and pine among other oils.

These oils have a calming effect that helps with relaxation in that when they enter the body through various ways like inhalation, absorption through the skin, the oil molecules reach the limbic system and bring about a reduced heart rate, improved immune system, relaxed breathing which all have a great capability to reduce the general stress levels.

People go for this kind of therapy for various reasons but majorly it is to get rid of stress and all the effects it has on the body like stomach disorders, headaches, insomnia and back aches.

These benefits are better explained below:

  • Aromatherapy’s major benefit is in bringing about the entire relaxation of the body and mind.
  • Its other benefit is that it goes a long way in the reduction of pain. The oils once absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin are then transported to other areas of the body, aided by the gentle massage, where they help with tissue regeneration and recovery which in case of inflammation, it is reversed and the pain due to the inflammation is reduced.
  • The essential oils used in aromatherapy are good in reestablishing proper sleeping habits by fostering the relaxation of the body which goes a long way in curing insomnia or problems with sleeping.
  • Aromatherapy is also profitable for rejuvenation. Rejuvenation is brought about when the essential oils are absorbed and through the bloodstream are able to access the various parts of the body including the joints and major organs and help to awaken the functions of the mind by enhancing the release of the hormone noradrenaline which serves to boost the attention span.
  • Aromatherapy has the additional benefit of relieving digestive issues by fostering the detoxification of the body and through this reduce the stress that is placed on the kidney in removing poisons from the body.

In spite of the various benefits aromatherapy has, it is not suitable for everyone and it is paramount that in case of an ongoing form of medication or condition that the doctor’s advice be sought in order to establish the safety of getting this kind of massage. For instance, people who have skin conditions like rashes or open wounds should refrain from this kind of massage or seek medical advice as the oils might enter the open wounds and aggravate the condition. Aromatherapy is also not ideal for individuals undergoing advanced cancer treatments like radiation or chemotherapy due to the risk of severe drug interaction.

For people who are on blood thinning medication due to blood clots should seek medical advice before attending any massage because the massaging might cause clots to break up and these clots might end up in the wrong place and cause extreme consequences like organ failure or stroke.
