Which massage is best for anxiety?
Aromatherapy massage is often best for anxiety. It is a Swedish massage that incorporates scented plant oils which are known as essential oils. Essential oils are extracted from flowers, fruits, seeds, and other plant parts and have pleasant scents. They are also believed to have healing properties, promote relaxation and relieve anxiety. Pre-blended oils are typically used during the massage to energize and uplift. Oils are often also selected to effectively satisfy specific needs. Aromatherapy massage is also very effective in relieving headaches, back pain, some digestive disorders, insomnia, and premenstrual symptoms. It is often advised to inquire about the contents of the oils used for the massage just in case a person has allergies and the use of some oils may cause reactions to the skin. Sports massage also helps to reduce anxiety, especially for people preparing for a competitive sport.
