With the days getting darker, shorter and cooler Winter Blues can slowly creep up on us here in the Southern Hemisphere. Of course there is nothing worse than feeling poorly is there? The shift in mood, muscle and joint stiffness, stuffy nose, sore throat, headache, fever the list can go on.
This is where Aromatherapy comes in, it helps you embrace Winter by uplifting your mood, fortifying and boosting your immune system and simply helping you breathe better to improve your circulation. In fact, one of the most powerful ways you can use essential oils when the temperature seems to dampen your mood is in a therapeutic massage treatment. Essential oils have the ability to trigger physiological changes to improve health beyond compare because it is holistic medicine. The integration of a customised essential oil during a massage treatment is not only designed to relieve tension, stiffness and fatigue, but they can powerfully revitalise the energy systems of the body in order to help you feel better.
