If you’re thinking of booking a sensual therapeutic massage, we highly recommend asking if your qualified therapist is familiar with aromatherapy. This powerful technique works wonders for the mind, body and soul during personal time. This week, we get up close and personal with aromatherapy and how it can enhance your relaxation experience even further.
What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment that’s often associated with therapeutic massage. The practice of aromatherapy involves the use of essential oils for a calming, relaxing and sometimes erotic remedy. Essential oils and lotions can be enjoyed through massage or distanced inhalation.
When breathed in as part of a therapeutic experience, the scent molecules in essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves (sense of smell), directly to the brain and positively impact the emotional centre of brain.
When essential oils are absorbed by the skin, the oil molecules pass through the epidermis, into the capillaries and to the bloodstream.
The Right Oils
Carefully selecting your oils or lotions before a therapeutic massage is very important to your overall experience. The right lubricant will only enhance it and provide lasting results long after your relaxation time is over. From increased libido to lowering stress hormones, each oil can offer something different. Some of the best options include:
Ylang Ylang increases energy levels and significantly helps to boost libido. This element is a natural aphrodisiac, which aids in bringing couples closer together and improves sexual energy and power.
Sandalwood is beneficial for women looking to increase their libido. In a recent study, women who inhaled the oil during a sexual experience reported an increase in their levels of desire and feelings of intimacy towards their partner.
Clary sage oil helps to lower stress hormones in men and women, helping to relax them and encourages emotional bonding. This is listed as the most helpful oil ingredient for women wanting more intimate experiences.
Rose aromatherapy oil stimulates dopamine which can help to lower anxiety and nerves. This allows us to feel more relaxed, present and less critical. This can be especially helpful during intimate experiences. It’s also a natural aphrodisiac with its fresh and floral scent.
Jasmine oil has a rich, sweet aroma which is often used to increase libido and foster intimacy. This aromatic oil increases mood boosting hormones and raises energy levels. Additionally, it awakens the emotional part of our brain, which can increase sensitivity to sex cues and possibly improve blood flow to sexual organs.
As an aside, we recommend considering the texture of the oil or lotion you choose. Some people prefer a thicker and creamier texture, while others like a more slippery oil. Experimenting with different oil bases is a great way of finding out what works and what we find more stimulating.
Benefits of A Sensual Therapeutic Massage
Whether you decide to include aromatherapy or not, a sensual and therapeutic massage has countless benefits and can significantly help to improve both our physical and mental wellbeing. Some of the notable benefits of a sensual massage include:
- Lowering stress and anxiety levels
- Helping the mind to switch off
- Aiding relaxation
- Eliminating fatigue
- Increasing libido and intimacy levels
There is a clear connection between massage and hormones, which affect our mood. During a massage, the therapist’s touch can increase the production of endorphins, which are natural painkillers that also stimulate the release of sex hormones, like testosterone and oxytocin. Additionally, massage can help to eliminate fatigue and increase energy levels, allowing individuals to feel more likely aroused.
Furthermore, massage can also help to reduce stress and anxiety, which are common factors that can negatively impact libido. When the body is stressed, it produces cortisol, a hormone that typically decreases sex drive. Massage can help to lower cortisol levels, meaning recipients are more receptive of intimacy.
