I love being able to customise a treatment to help clients get the most out of their sessions at Nautilus Dublin. Sometimes the focus is to relax and reduce stress levels. Other times, it’s to relieve muscle tightness, manage pain and improve flexibility.
One of today’s clients is training for the Dublin marathon and completed a VERY long run yesterday – 30km!
To help the body recover, I combined a Swedish massage targeting the legs, back, neck and shoulders with the use of specific essential oils. If you run, you may notice the tendency to raise your shoulders, which can cause tension in the back. To help further encourage the recovery process, I also used an essential oil blend of lavender, lemongrass, rosemary and vetiver in an almond oil base.
These essential oils help relieve over-exertion with warming, pain relieving, anti-inflammatory properties and are especially effective when used during a massage.
