What is Aromatherapy?
By using the therapeutic qualities of essential oils to enhance physical and emotional health, the healing of the body, mind and spirit is promoted.
To touch or rub an injury, or to hug a loved one, is an instinctive reaction and the importance of touch in physical and mental health has been widely researched and proven. Due to the constraints of our busy working environment and the increase in technology, touch in the modern world is decreasing, so people are turning to massage as an advanced form of the instinct to touch and heal.
One of the most effective uses of essential oils is in aromatherapy massage. You will already be familiar with names of some essential oils, such as lemon, sandalwood and lavender, but other less familiar oils like bergamot, vetiver, patchouli and many others also have a place in aromatherapy. Used in a carrier such as sweet almond oil the massage develops the therapeutic effect of the combined oils, which act not only on the body systems but also on the nervous system, affecting the emotions and the psyche.
During an aromatherapy massage, various hands-on techniques are used by the therapist for your physical and psychological benefit which may include: -
Aromatherapy can benefit almost everyone, but it has been found to be particularly effective in helping stress-related disorders. A course of treatments can result in increased vitality and energy levels and an enhanced feeling of well-being.
