Enlivens the body and mind by increasing circulation
Lively and fun, this AromaTherapy combination of mint oils spun with rosemary enlivens the mind and body. Peppermint is high in natural menthol, which aids in pain relief and cools the body while increasing circulation. Research shows that it also stimulates the area of the brain that releases noradrenalin, causing people in one study to perform tasks more effectively that required sustained attention.
Reduces inflammation, calms the mind and promotes restful sleep
A foundation of patchouli, grapefruit and sweet orange help highlight two unique lavender oils. First, English true lavender is used to both reduce pain and inflammation, and act as a mild antidepressant and calming agent. Next, lavender helps support the respiratory system, aid in natural detoxification and promote restful sleep.
AromaTherapy uses fragrant oils extracted from herbs, flowers and fruits to naturally enhance the benefits of massage. Before each session begins, you can choose one of four unique oil blends to be used in your massage lotion. Enhance your next massage session for only $10*.
Many muscles in the front and back of the upper body are accessory respiratory muscles, she explains. “When any of these muscles are chronically tight and shortened, they can restrict normal breathing and disrupt breathing patterns,” she explains. “Massage techniques to lengthen and relax these muscles improve breathing capacity and function.”
Regular therapeutic massage sessions provide significant benefits beyond the immediate relaxation we enjoy. People who experience high levels of stress tend to get sick more than others. Combine stress with lack of sleep and poor nutrition, and our immune system’s ability to naturally protect itself against bacteria and infection is greatly reduced. So the question is: What are the benefits of massage on immune system?
Clinical studies have indicated that regular massage not only helps alleviate stress, but can naturally increase the immune system’s cytotoxic capacity (the activity level of the body’s natural “killer cells”) and decrease the number of T-cells, which improves the body’s immune functioning overall. In one study by Gail Ironson, M.D., HIV positive men were given 45 minute massages five days a week, for a month. They showed an increase in serotonin and an increase in cells that are viewed as the first line of defense in the immune system.
