Aromatherapy Massage for Beginners
Aromatherapy uses massage to spread oils around the body and aid absorption into skin, superficial tissues and muscles. Massage warms the body and relaxes muscles, enhancing the effects of essential oils.
A basic massage sequence includes the following four movements. These are used for full-body massage or for specific areas of the body such as arms or legs.
Effleurage – The Warm-Up Act
Usually used to open and close a massage sequence, effleurage is a stroking movement of the hand that covers wide areas of the body. The pressure may vary from light to deep, but it is constant. For the person who is giving the massage, it serves the purpose of making first contact and establishing a rhythm. For the recipient, it warms the skin and promotes the flow of blood and lymph fluid, warming tissues in readiness for deeper moves. Superficial effleurage promotes relaxation of contracted muscle tissues. Deep effleurage produces mechanical and reflex reactions in the muscles.
Petrissage – Creating Friction
Petrissage is also known as friction and it creates a deep static pressure to relax tense muscles. Using the whole palm of the hand, or the thumb and fingers, petrissage works in circular movements to remove knots in muscles and encourage toxins to flow out of tissues. In aromamassage, this encourages the flow of lymph fluid and so is useful in lymphatic drainage. Petrissage typically follows effleurage or kneading movements in a massage sequence.
Kneading Those Knots Away
Kneading is a massage movement similar to kneading bread. The hands work over fleshy areas of the body to encourage the flow of blood and work at the deep roots of tension in the muscles. You can use your whole hands or just your thumb and/or fingers to knead. Some schools of thought speculate that kneading may be a better method than deep effleurage to aid the absorption of an aromatherapy blend into the skin and tissues, helping to decongest and relax muscles. It typically follows effleurage in a massage sequence and can be used to accompany petrissage.
Drain, Drain, Drain Away
Draining movements use the palms, thumbs and fingers to encourage blood and lymph to flow in the desired direction. The technique can include shuffling or vibrating the fingers along the body. It is used at the end of massage sequences, after the body tissues have been relaxed and decongested, to drain toxins towards lymph nodes.
A full-body massage usually follows the sequence: back, back of legs, front of legs, stomach (optional), arms, chest and face. At each part of the body you would perform effleurage (to warm up that area and spread the oils), petrissage/kneading and draining. Cover up each area of the body with a towel after you have massaged it, to allow maximum absorption of essential oils. Be sure to massage on a hard surface (i.e. not the bed) for full effectiveness of your massage moves.
Dilutions And Blending
A blend of 30 ml carrier oil and 18 drops essential oils (a choice of three to four oils) creates a 3% dilution – a safe percentage for most adults. For pregnant women reduce to a 1% dilution and for the elderly, children or those with sensitive skins reduce to 3%. The oils you choose depend on the conditions you wish to treat.
Contraindications To Aromamassage
If you have any of the following conditions, seek professional medical advice before having an aromatherapy massage: pregnancy, heart disease, circulatory problems, high or low blood pressure, varicose veins, pacemaker, haemophilia, taking anti-coagulants, cancer, recent operations or injuries, severe skin complaints, epilepsy, asthma, allergies (including nut), diabetes or thyroid problems.
Derived from plant sources, essential oils are subtle, essential oils are subtle and delicate extracts. These substances maintain our health by helping transport nutrients and oxygen to the numerous cells of our body. In the absence of oxygen, nutrients cannot be absorbed, so the oxygenating essential oils improves overall health and wellness.
Essential oils also provide psychological and physical benefits. They are mankind’s first medicine. Anyone venturing into the world of Aromatherapy must use “Grade A” therapeutic essential oils, anything less will not be beneficial and may not produce therapeutic effects and could possibly be toxic. Thus, the benefits are likely to damage your body than heal it.
Why only use Grade A Essential Oils?
Grade “A” Therapeutic Essential Oils only administered by highly qualified, Board Certified, Effective and Therapeutic practitioners.
We have to raise public awareness of the benefits and longevity of the purity of Grade “A” therapeutic healing oils for a more meaningful and healthier life. We see it too often, people get excited about essential oils and aromatherapy but they are reluctant to select the healthier choice for them even after I educate them about Grade “A” therapeutic healing oils vs. regular and non-beneficial ones. Awareness must be made to the best effort by the public to make healing ingredients over harmful ones a natural choice! The consequence is harming themselves and their loved ones instead of taking care of themselves.
Unfortunately, these days while the public seems to want to have the right intention to use natural and chemical free products in their homes and lives, their messages are misleading which could be extremely hazardous to their health and lives as we see a lot of sad news on media!
Therefore, one must use Grade “A” therapeutic, certified organic essential oils such as Young Living Essential Oils in order to obtain the high beneficial effects.
Research shows that Grade A Essential Oils have many benefits:
‣Reduces the number of harmful microorganisms in the body
‣Promotes overall relaxation and relieves stress
‣Helps with weight loss and management
‣Improves cognitive functioning
‣Enhances the secretion of antibodies that fight common infections
‣Promotes healthy digestion
‣Provides relief for headaches and dispels foul odors

Treat your body to a blissful massage experience at the spa.
After a long week at work many people want to relax in a nice hot tub and call it a night. This is one great all around reliever of stress, but what about adding an additional relaxation technique to help relieve muscle tension, release toxins within the body and relax the mind? This technique is called deep tissue massage therapy.
There are many trained professionals all over the world who know how to work certain trigger points and focus on particular sections of the body during deep tissue massage therapy. This massage is perfect for anyone who lives a hectic lifestyle and wants to set some time aside and indulge in relaxation.
Deep tissue massage therapy is an excellent source for relieving stress. Not only does it help to relax uptight and incredibly tense muscles, but did you know that muscles that are overly tense over time can actually cause health problems for many individuals?
Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage Therapy
According to Cathy Wong, ND, CNS, is a licensed naturopathic doctor and a guide for About.com, she explains the benefits of deep tissue massage therapy in her article titled, “Deep Tissue Massage.” She states that muscles that are very tense for an extended period of time can become inflamed and actually block the flow of oxygen within the body.
In fact, deep tissue massage therapy is highly recommended for anyone who works a highly stressful job where they experience muscle tension in the neck and upper body. This type of massage helps to restore mobility and increase the flow of oxygen within the body.
Massaging Techniques Used – Cleansing of The Body
The massage therapist relieves tension in the muscles by using a combination of techniques. Deep tissues massage therapy uses two separate techniques. These techniques include, kneading and working with different types of pressure to remove tension knots. Pressure is applied against the grain of the muscle and helps to relax stiff muscles. This process also releases toxins within the body.
These toxins are called lactic acids and a build-up of these can occur after vigorous exercise. According to Christopher Hall, a licensed massage therapist in Mesa, Arizona. Muscles that are overly tight cannot excrete lactic acid. He states that this can also cause other toxins to build up within the body, like cellular debris, other cellular wastes, viruses and bacteria.
By using different types of pressure during deep tissue massage therapy will help to loosen these toxins. The person who received the massage then removes toxins within the body simply by drinking plenty of water after a massage is performed. By doing this, a person can flush these toxins out of the body the natural way.
In conclusion, Hall states that using different techniques relieves tension in the muscles and helps target overly sore muscles after working out. “Massage is great for releasing toxins, but the best type is petrissage, the kneading and squeezing strokes. Deep tissue, if done properly, is good for reducing trigger points.”
Deep Tissue Massage Therapy Helps Osteoarthritis
There are numerous studies that also support the benefits of deep tissue massage therapy. One study in particular, highlighted the benefits of deep tissue massage therapy and how people utilize it for coping with a number of health issues. According to Consumer Reports,, August, 2005 issue, 34,000 people gave deep tissue massage therapy a higher ranking then other forms of treatment for pain and osteoarthritis. These other services and treatments included physical therapy, exercise, prescription medications and over the counter medications.
Deep tissue massage therapy does wonders for a hectic lifestyle and a person can achieve better health in a more holistic way. A deep tissue massage can increase the flow of oxygen within the body, relieve tension and help loosen and remove toxins from within the body. By incorporating one of these massages once a month, the body and mind will feel revitalized, relaxed, and ready to tackle another busy day.
