Yes, I do think it's a good idea because I believe essential oils can enhance the effect of your massage. There are essential oils (some already mentioned) such as Rosemary, Ginger, Black Pepper, Vetiver or Lemongrass that, when added to a plant oil base, can act as topical circulatory stimulants and help to boost the local circulation around muscles and joints and flush out toxins. You could also add in essential oils that have an analgesic effect (Rosemary, Black Pepper, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Cardamon) which can help with relieving pain in any sore areas. If you haven't done this before, don’t forget that there are contraindications with using essential oils so it would be best to consult a registered aromatherapist if you want to make up your own blends or use a pre-blended oil from an aromatherapy supplier.

Yes, but good quality of essential oil are very important for effective treatmant/massage<
my suggestion for Post-Sports massage:
(Sensitive tendons and back stiffness, very useful after a physical or athletic effort)
E.O. Wintergreen 2 drops
E.O. Tarragon 2 drops
E.O Laurel (Bay) 1 drop
Base oil: Hazelnut or Sweet Almond 4-8 drops
Use: massage 4 to 6 drops into affected area, as needed.
It will work like magic !!!
Yes, I believe the blend of sports massage and aromatherapy will increase the benefit for the clients.
Most definatley. Not only will they be getting the benefits from the sports massage but they will be gaining something extra by having the essential oils working in conjunction.
