ATLANTA (March 18, 2006) – Atlanta School of Massage, a leader among Massage Therapy schools for over 25 years, offers useful advice on home therapies which can be used to help relieve pain and ease tension between massage therapy visits. Water therapy is a great at home therapy choice because it gives you a range of simple and effective ways of coping with stress, improving circulation and toning skin and muscles.
Follow these easy steps to create a relaxing stress relief bath, remembering to always use caution with essential oils:
Place the salt mixture into a bowl. Add 1 Tbs. carrier oil (vegetable oil is fine) and 8-15 drops of your chosen essential oils. Mix very well with a fork. Add the mixture to a pretty jar or container that has a tight fitting lid. After a day, you may wish to mix well again to ensure that the oils have blended very well. After you have drawn your bathwater, add about 1/4 cup (about 2 ounces) of the bath salt to your bath water.
Mix well to ensure that the salt has dispersed well in the tub and hop on in. It’s best to add the bath salts just before getting in the bath instead of while the water is running so that the essential oils don’t evaporate before you get in. Using this bath salt blend is safer than adding pure essential oils directly to the bath water and adds minerals and other beneficial properties of the salts.
