Aromatherapy and Massage are a perfect match. Like peas and carrots, bread and butter, socks and shoes... you get the idea!
Did you know that before I founded Aromahead Institute, I used to be a Massage Therapist?
I loved it! I co-founded the Finger Lakes School of Massage with Cindy Black, and it was so fulfilling to teach people to use Massage to support others.
When I started using essential oils in combination with Massage, I was amazed at how effective they were at easing my clients’ pain. It was like the oils helped unlock deeper levels of natural healing in my clients’ bodies, minds, and hearts.
I want to help you feel confident using Aromatherapy for your own Massage clients. It feels so good to side-step the guesswork and confusion, and know that you have an amazing blend to offer your clients that will relieve their pain! It’s empowering to understand how to best use those oils, and to be aware of the safety considerations behind them.
I want to help as much as I can, so I created a webinar training for Massage Therapists! It’s called “How to Reduce Your Clients’ Pain Using Aromatherapy.”
This webinar training is completely FREE, and it’s 90 minutes long. You’ll come away with recipes you can use right away for your clients.
I’ll teach you:
- How to make a pain-relieving Massage butter.
- How to make a custom essential oil inhaler for immediate relief from a tension headache.
- My TOP 6 essential oil suggestions for a Massage practice, and how to safely use them to reduce pain.
I remember how wonderful it felt to have my clients say, “Wow, I feel so much better!” I also loved giving them Aromatherapy blends to take home, so they could keep their relief going between Massage sessions. The recipes I’ll teach you in this webinar are perfect for that.
You can even make these blends for resale and expand your business.
Before I end this blog post, I just have to share a Massage blend you can make today! The three oils in this blend are known to reduce pain and inflammation, and offer great support for easing muscle tension. (We’ll talk more about HOW essential oils ease pain and which ones to use on the webinar!)
Soft Forest Massage Oil
- 1 oz (30 ml) jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
- 2 drops Balsam Fir essential oil (Abies balsamea)
- 4 drops Black Spruce essential oil (Picea mariana)
- 6 drops Lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
Make this blend in a 1 oz (30 ml) glass bottle. Combine the jojoba and essential oils, and shake gently.
One piece of advice I can give . . . I suggest having your client smell the lids of the Balsam Fir and Black Spruce oils before using this blend on them. Some people, especially those with breathing conditions such as asthma, might experience tightness in their chest in response to the conifer oils.
If that’s the case, you can choose a few other oils for them. Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) and Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana) would be great choices.
You can even watch the webinar with a friend and Massage one another’s shoulders while you learn!
