As we have learned, magnesium plays a very important part in the way we feel physically and psychologically. Magnesium deficiency is directly connected to muscle cramps, aches, pains, arthritis, osteoporosis, nervous exhaustion, stress-related disorders, fatigue, poor immunity, insomnia, headaches, migraines, depression, anxiety, toxicity and many more.
Pregnant women and young mothers, sportsmen, children, elderly people, professional people, all benefit tremendously from magnesium supplementation. However, oral supplementation is not always the most efficient way to top up our magnesium levels, since only a relatively small percentage of magnesium gets absorbed from the gut into the blood stream. If we take too much oral magnesium we get diarrhoea, and then we absorb even less of it.
So what is the solution to it? Transdermal magnesium supplementation (via the skin) is the best and most efficient way to get required amount of magnesium into the body fairly fast. Of course, it does not beat intravenous injections – they are the fastest acting. But for most people transdermal magnesium applications are by far the most convenient way to get magnesium into the body.
One of the best and most pleasant ways to do it is via a massage. Magnesium oil is not actually an oil but a highly concentrated magnesium chloride solution. When the flake is mixed with water in 1:1 ratio the concentration is really high. You do not need such a high concentration of course – more water can be added (e.g. 1 part of flake to 2 parts of water). A more concentrated solution will result in more magnesium chloride being absorbed into the body though. Use the solution as you would use any oil. The results are simply phenomenal. Any aches, pains, stresses simply disappear during the treatment. Physical and psychological relaxation is profound and obvious. If your client suffers from exhaustion, insomnia, headaches, migraines, stress, aches, pains, knotted muscles, painful joints, chronic fatigue – all of these will be helped.
The only thing with magnesium oil is that it has a slight stinging sensation to it being a salt. I personally do not mind and find it pleasant. Sometimes it can cause an irritation in softer areas like the neck. However, benefits by far outweigh any temporary discomfort. I have earlier described my own experience with magnesium oil when I had excruciating pain and burning sensation in my neck and shoulders. Although it later brought in a rash and spots, the relief I experienced from magnesium oil was so quick and profound that I will not think twice if and when I have pain in any area of my body again. I thoroughly recommend this luxurious treatment – apply it at home or ask your therapist.
