Oriental massage kits provide everything you need to deliver a deeply relaxing Oriental massage. The kits are based on the traditional therapies of the Orient such as acupuncture, shiatsu, and energy healing. The focus of Oriental massage is the energy pathways of the body and encouraging a healthy flow of energy for overall well-being.

The contents of an Oriental massage kit will vary between products, but almost all massage kits are sure to have massage oils. Massage oils are applied to the body to make it easier to deliver the massage. The Oriental massage oils are named according to the effects they have on the body. For instance, some Oriental oils are called harmony, tranquility, and Thai spice, and they leave the skin feeling smooth and rejuvenated.

Oriental essential oils may also be included in a massage kit. Essential oils have been known to have therapeutic effects on the body, and the effects typically last a few days after the application of the oils. They can be dropped onto the body such as during the raindrop technique, and then gently massaged into the skin. The oils have the ability to produce deep relaxation and tranquility. Some of the kinds of essential oils that may be included in a kit are Eucalyptus, Thai Bergamot, Lemongrass, Citronella, Lavender, Clove, Tangerine, Mandarin, Plai, Patchouli, Sweet Basil, or Ylang Ylang.

Incense is another item that you might find in an Oriental massage kit. Incense comes in approximately ten inch sticks which are burned to release the therapeutic aroma. Some of the aromas include Lavender, Lemongrass, Kaffirlime, Siam Benzoin, and Sweet Basil.

Bath salts are another Oriental tradition. They are available in all your traditional aromas of the incense and essential oils. Bath salts are placed in the warm water where they dissolve and turn an ordinary bath into a wonderfully warm, aromatherapy experience. Oriental bath crystals are a similar product. The crystals bubble-up in the water and release an exotic aroma. They are usually offered in aphrodisiac fragrances. Bath crystals are great for relaxing on your own or experiencing with an intimate other.

Most massage kits contain an instruction guide explaining how to perform the techniques of Oriental massage, and include a CD of inspirational music that is ideal for massage or meditation.

The massage kits are great for beginners who are interested in learning the techniques of Oriental massage therapy. Of course the Oriental massage kits are also good when you and that special someone want to share a truly romantic and relaxing massage experience.
