Therapeutic Essential Oils Massage

Massaging with therapeutic oils and various massage techniques on soft tissue can promote relaxation, health and healing.

Today scientists, physicians, researchers and many individuals are just beginning to explore and discover some of the amazing benefits pure therapeutic grade essential oils have to offer. Essential oils embody the regenerating, oxygenating and immune properties of plants.

A laboring body is working hard. Tension wastes energy and will wear you out. It leads to you fighting against yourself and makes it difficult for your body to labor effectively. Tension will also increase your “perception” of pain. Many women find comfort and physical relaxation from massage or touch, which can reduce stress during labor.
