Pause… for Self Care with Massage and Aromatherapy

21 Dec

We need to remember to pause and take time for ourselves.  This is especially important this time of year as we find ourselves in a constant hurried state as we prepare for the holidays.  However, within this  state of “on the go” we must carve out time for ourselves to calm the mind and listen to our bodies.  Self care tends to be the first item on the to-do list to get eliminated this time of year as we are trying to fulfill other demands facing us.  Instead of ditching the routines that keep you performing at optimal levels, find time to stick with what is good for you; this will give you the energy and stamina you need to survive the holiday season.  So schedule that massage, use essential oils, stay in your gym routine and eat a balanced healthy diet.

Some Benefits of Massage:

  • Enhanced immunity
  • Increased range of motion
  • Decreased anxiety and depression
  • Reduction in stress

When we are experiencing a lot of  stress all of these benefits that massage offers is being reduced, this is why regular treatment is beneficial.  Massage is not a luxury, but rather an investment in your health and well-being. 

When you combine essential oils with massage you get twice the benefit!  Essential oils can help with a variety of issues.  To add more benefit to your massage session you can use YBN’s True Aromatherpay Blends.

Benefits of Aromatherapy with Massage:

The use of essential oils in your home, car and office in between your massage sessions is another way you can take care of yourself not only during this time of year but all year long.  Use a tea light diffuser or nebulizer in your home and office and a car diffuser during your daily commute. 

Essential Suggestions to Reduce Stress:

Take care of yourself and have a happy and healthy holiday season! 

Stay tuned for the next blog in January for the Essential Oil of the Month!
