4 simple self massaging techniques
Body massages are beneficial, but when combined with the properties of essential oils, their effects can be truly multiplied and pleasure can be combined with well-being, relaxation and health. Here are some ideas for everyday use.
RELEASE FATIGUE FROM YOUR FEET
With myrtle essential oil + and macadamia plant oil
Massage with the thumb relatively firmly, not only on the top of the foot, but also and most importantly, over the entire plantar arch, spending time on the fleshy part of each toe and the internal edge of the foot.
TO RELIEVE HEADACHES
With peppermint essential oil + apricot kernel plant oil
Gently massage the temples, making small circular movements with the fingertips. Using the thumbs, press the internal edge of the eyebrows, then smooth outwards.
TO RELAX SHOULDERS
Place your fingers at the base of the skull and make very small circular movements, from the neck down to the shoulders, then tap lightly with the fingers.
TO RELAX AND CALM THE STOMACH
While lying down, massage the abdomen firmly with both hands flat, one on top of the other, making circles around the bellybutton, in a clockwise direction (to aid digestion).
