Aromatherapy is a great way to relieve stress and anxiety due to corona. But since all of us may not have an aroma diffuser at home, we can reap the benefits of aromatherapy in some other ways!

Give Yourself a Massage
After a relaxing bath, why not end with a massage?
As many of you know, stress can accumulate in the body thereby delaying circulation and causing discomfort. If you are experiencing cold hands and feet, and/or physical discomfort due to stress and/or anxiety, a massage may be exactly what you need.
When thinking of massages, most of us envision going to a masseuse. However, massages can also easily be done ourselves in the comfort of our own home!
Ayura Bicassa Massage Plate
One popular massage method in Japan that can be safely done yourself is the cassa massage or the Chinese gua sha massage. Cassa uses natural stone and/or porcelain plates to enhance blood circulation through strategically massaging the lower region of the body.
The Ayura Porcelain Massage Plate is one of the best items on the market for an effective cassa massage. Ayura refers to their massage techniques as “bicassa”, which adds “bi” meaning beauty in Japanese. As blood flow is so important for the maintenance of healthy scalp, hair, skin and general physical wellbeing, it is no wonder why Ayura chose to add beauty to the term!
Their premium porcelain plate is specially crafted in an Ishikawan furnace. While Ayura could have chosen anywhere in Japan to manufacturer their bicassa plates, they specifically chose Ishikawa because it is notable for its high quality pottery.
Ayura massage guide recommends using it on lower body areas such as under the knees, legs, and feet. This is because delays in circulation easily occur in the lower region of the body. They also advise pairing Ayura Bicassa Body Serum with the Ayura Porcelain Plate to moisturize and beautify your skin for an enhanced your massage experience.
