A warm oil massage can soothe, relax and relieve muscle tension
What can be better than after a busy day at work and the long trek home, than a long hot bath, followed by a hot soothing and relaxing warm oil massage to relieve the stress, strains and tensions of the day?
The answer is no further away than your finger tips. Warm oil massages can produce a number of benefits from head to toe. Starting with the scalp, it helps to improve circulation in both the head and neck. It relaxes the scalp and brings oxygenated blood to the roots of the hair thereby strengthening it. Massage encourages new hair growth, retards and slows the arrival of grey hair, reduces, dry flaky scalp and improves alertness and concentration. Moreover, these results can be accomplished at home without the intervention of a specialist.
A full body warm oil massage can bring lasting relief to tense, tired and painful muscles, relieve backaches, rheumatic and arthritic pains, with all types of headaches benefiting from a Black seed oil massage.
Aromatherapy oils are commonly used in body massage therapies. These oils are the concentrated extracts from leaves, flowers, seeds and the roots of plants, whose properties have been used for therapeutic purposes for centuries. It is on record that Hippocrates; otherwise known as the ‘great physician’ said that aromatherapy has the ability to restore the balance of both mind and body. Aromatherapy is once again enjoying a resurgence. Today it is widely used in many ‘high-end’ massage parlours, spas and beauty salons for therapeutic and medicinal purposes.
Masseuses customarily use their thumbs, fingers, palms, elbows and sometime even their knee to manipulate the soft tissues, muscles and tendons of the body to achieve the desired results, which is to reduce pain, relieve tension and soreness, ultimately bringing about a state of relaxation.
Regular warm oil body massages might be a luxury to many, however for others, who have no choice but to live with painful conditions, it can be the difference between living a painful existence or deriving some comfort and benefits as a result of regular warm oil massage therapy.
