The Benefits of Stress Relief
Many diseases are stress-related, probably because when you are stressed, your immune system shuts down. This is an ancient reaction, designed to help us fight or flee when we are under attack. However, the changes in our bodies due to stress are only supposed to be for a short amount of time, until we have safely escaped a dangerous situation. Continued stress becomes very damaging to your health.
One of the immediate benefits of massage is stress relief, massage can provide emotional and spiritual balance, bringing with it true relaxation and peace.
A letter from a long time massage technician:
In my massage practice, I have used many products: oils, gels, lotions creams, etc. My business is not large so I do not go through a gallon of these products as quickly as a larger spa operation would. I found that most products became rancid, even with cautious handling and storage.
For my clients, for myself, I want the products I use to be the best I can find. My search began when I found that my sheets were becoming rancid over time and products in storage weren't any better.
I went in search of organic products that would meet the needs of more than one kind of massage. I found YOUTHING STRATEGIES Organic Sesame Oils and decided to give them a try. I haven't used another massage oil since. My clients knew the difference after their first massage with these wonderful products
The processes used (by YOUTHING STRATEGIES) add no chemicals or water so the product is pure with a very long shelf life. The laundry problems previously experienced have disappeared and my sheets smell fresh and clean.
These products have added a value to my practice that I did not expect because my clients purchase the oils from me to use on a daily basis themselves.
I have used these oils as a base for salt glows and stone massage. Facial massage has become a wonderful part of every massage and I have heard nothing but compliments from my clients. I have been asked to start and finish a massage session with the facial massage as it is so relaxing with the added smoothness the oil allows and I know the oil won't clog pores,
Sesame Oil is readily absorbed and has health benefits that only add to its wholesome use. I can control the gliding action or drag that I want in a massage by the amount of oil I use. The heat generated in the massage is a bonus that doesn't take extra energy to produce.
These products are versatile. With added essential oils they can be made to perform in a variety of applications for sport massage, muscle relaxation, hot and cold applications, mood enhancement, in aromatherapy and as therapeutic blends for specific conditions and/or disease.
