Aromatherapy massage is a beautiful way to express caring and help relieve the stress of a loved one. Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to help promote and maintain physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
• Combining well chosen essential oils (such as the example of Lavender or Roman Chamomile given above) with a carrier oil can promote relaxation, reduce stress and/or help to improve circulation and reduce swelling and pain.
• Some massage oils contain synthetic mineral oil that can potentially impair the skin's ability to breath. Wave Crest Massage uses natural oil as the massage oil base and as the "carrier oil" for essential oils. Natural oils can help to lubricate, moisturize and nourish the skin with EFAs and other important fatty acids, anti-oxidants and important nutritives (while fatty acids must be limited in the diet, they are important and nourishing for the skin).
