Aromatherapy massage includes the use of highly concentrated plant oils called essential oils. When you inhale essential oil molecules, messages are transmitted to the part of the brain that controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones. Essential oils are also believed to be absorbed through the skin.
Each essential oil has different healing properties. Some are used to calm and others to energise. During pregnancy, your body changes and these changes have an effect on most body systems including: circulatory, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary, musculoskeletal, lymphatic and digestive. The changes may cause common ailments, some of which may be helped by aromatherapy massage including morning sickness, tiredness, lower/upper back pain, constipation, cramps, heartburn, high blood pressure, insomnia, and oedema (water retention).
Postnatal recovery can take time, not only to adjust but to heal, gain energy levels, adjust emotionally and cope with everyday challenges that will face you. Postnatal aromatherapy massage may help you in all of these instances.
