A quick massage is such a good way to promote wellness without the commitment of a spa appointment. A self-massage can help relieve tired muscles after a long day or exercises, so you can feel rejuvenated.
When you start your day with a 10-minute self-massage, you can revitalize the body and mind, which helps if you've been feeling mentally or physically sluggish. Also, if you end your day with a relaxing massage, you can afford quality sleep.
A self-massage also promotes soft and lustrous skin, and is for sure, one of the most incredible acts of self-kindness and love.
If you feel self-conscious in spas, or don’t like the idea of being touched by a stranger, let’s help you give yourself a self-massage, enabling you to work in your own home on any sensitive areas.

Steps to Give Yourself a Self-Massage at Home
- Prepare your room
You want to ensure your room is warm and cozy enough so you can quickly get comfortable for your massage.
Light a scented candle or prepare your reed diffuser a day before so that the relaxing scent can help calm your mind. Also, use your scented candles to create a beautiful and moody atmosphere.
- Enjoy a Relaxing Bath
After a bath is always a great time for a massage, as your muscles will be relaxed.
When preparing your bath, be sure to add bath salts to warm water by using our mini bath salt wooden spoon, and it dissolves quickly & easily. Most importantly, exfoliate your skin in the shower and give yourself a foot bath soak so your skin is ready to take up new and nourishing oils.
- Warm your Oil & Massage Your Body
Warm a little essential oil in your hands and start by massaging the back of your neck, and move slowly to your throat in an upward motion.
Move to massage your arms and legs, with long strokes on the muscles and circular motions on the joints. Also, massage your chest and abdomen using your palms in a clockwise direction.
Massage your hips and your bottom before moving down your thighs and to the soles of your feet. Now massage both palms and the backs of the hands and once you’ve massaged your entire body, lie down on a towel and do some belly breathing as you take in the relaxing scents of the essential oils.
After this breathing or meditation practice, shower with warm water, and apply your body lotion.
Go ahead and give yourself the gift of a self-massage.
