Using Aroma Therapy to Treat Spasticity

Spasticity can be caused by damage that has occurred to the part of the brain that controls movement of the body or by damage that has occurred to the nerves that go from the brain to the spinal cord. Spasticity its self is the stiffness orrigidness in muscles. It can be identified by the unusual tightness or increased muscle tone in the muscles. It is a serious condition and it can effect walking as well as other everyday normal activities such as speech.

Some other causes of spasticity include a stroke, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, phenylketonuria, spinal cord injury or head injury. Exercise and muscle stretching can help ease some of the symptoms but if you have any symptoms which could indicate that you have spasticity you should see a medical doctor or if you have been diagnosed with it and it gets worse then you should see your doctor.

I am a certified natural health consultant and I have study and worked with essential oils for over 20 years. Below are some of my own essential oil formulas that I personally created and have worked with over the years. Choose one and mix the oils together very well then use as a massage oil two or three times a day.
