Liniments & Embrocation for a Variety of Applications
Embrocation is preferably applied for older patients to encourage blood flow and stimulate respiration. However, liniments also quite often come into use as post-massage treatment or following sports or physical activities. Embrocation can be done with varying liniments. Alcohol-based liniments are often used, which are set apart by their refreshing and cooling affect. The compound is most often offset with essential oils, such as lavender oil, citrus oil, mint oil or arnica oil.
You can purchase liniments and wellness liquids for application in the massage or physiotherapy practice, with many different aromas and package sizes, from Praxisdienst.
