If there was ever a time to enjoy the finer things in life, it is certainly most earned and deserved during your senior years. Treating yourself to a relaxing massage and beautiful aromatics are two wonderful pampering techniques to soothe the soul and any find bodily relief from the aches and pains that come with a life fully lived. What better compensation is there than enjoying the Human Touch massage chair while inhaling a wonderful aroma direct from nature? Being able to utilize this chair from the comfort of your home at any time of the day or night provides relaxation on demand. The added bonus of nature’s aroma can transport you emotionally to a vacation paradise, or trigger a memory of a great experience previously relished.

There are multiple benefits to inhaling pleasant scents – the least of which is that the simple act of deep breathing can reduce stress – a trickle-down ailment that accounts for an estimated 75 to 90 percent of doctor visits. Stress reduction is recommended in every physical or mental ailment ever diagnosed. If all doctors’ orders included massage and aromatherapy, we would all be on our way to better health; luckily no prescription is needed.

Many oils have been studied to reduce tension and promote relaxation, such as the citrus oils, lavender, geranium, neroli and ylang.  You can apply up to five drops of any single note or any combination of these natural essential oils to a candle diffuser, or simple apply a few drops to a tissue and breathe in while enjoying the hands-free action of the Human Touch massage chair as it gently rolls up and down the spine, massages your calves or jumps cat-like across your shoulders. I sometimes use different aromas with different settings. For instance, try rosemary or eucalyptus during the stimulating action that invigorates muscles, or customize lavender or orange for the slow relaxing movement that releases tension. Now that ought to keep you young and stress free!
