We all know the consequences of not getting a good night’s sleep. Mental fog and fatigue are perhaps the most noticeable, but there are a host of other physical issues that can build up if we don’t get regular rest and quality sleep.
A consistent lack of sleep can often have a negative impact on both our mental and physical wellbeing, even leading to anxiety and depression in severe cases. Many people seek over the counter sleep aids to help them fall asleep and stay asleep longer, but these can often have dangerous side effects. If you are looking for a natural alternative, aromatherapy massage might just be the solution to your sleep problems.
Making aromatherapy massage a regular part of your self-care routine can help to prepare your body for rest. Talk to your massage therapist during your intake interview about your sleep struggles and ask what essential oil blends might be helpful. Your therapist will work with you to develop the right blend that can help you adjust your bedtime routine so you can prepare your body for adequate rest.
Regular massage helps to influence the body’s chemistry by increasing serotonin levels which help to maintain your sleep cycle, appetite and digestion and even your mood. Combining essential oils like lavender, sandalwood and rose can help you address common sleep issues. Your therapist can create a custom blend according to your scent preferences.
Regular massage therapy sessions in combination with a custom blend of essential oils can help you relax and achieve the sleep of your dreams. Don’t suffer through another night of tossing and turning and staring at the clock. Talk to your massage therapist and get your aromatherapy journey started today.
